Allana Maiden, 27, revealed that her mother, Debbie Barrett, went through a mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer when Allana was a small child. Allana added that most of her growing years were spent seeing her mother try to overcome the surgery and attempt to look beautify, which meant that purchasing the right clothes including bras.

However on finding that there are not many choices for breast cancer survivors, Allana decided to start a petition on the website, change.org, where she has requested Victoria's Secret to come out with a 'survivor line' bras and her petition has attracted a number of supporters with more than 90,000 people signing up.

"I know this is a minor inconvenience compared to the other things my mom's been through, and she never complains, but it is not fair.... A strong woman like her should be able to feel as beautiful as she is. She should be able to go to a store in her local mall with everyone else and buy a beautiful bra like everyone else", Allana wrote, adding that she chose Victoria's Secret due to their 2012 campaign "Think Pink" in support of breast cancer awareness.
