When this woman is upset with her friend, she asks Reddit:
The title says it’s all. I (35 female)had a mastectomy 2 months ago do to breast cancer and won’t get reconstructive surgery till after the wedding. Bride (36 female) wants me to wear a strapless dress and says
“I should be proud and embrace my scars and lack of breasts” but easier said then done. I would prefer something with sleeves (even lace I would be fine with). I’m ready to just not be in the wedding I get it’s her wedding but I would never put a “friend” in a uncomfortable situation like that.
Update. I was really upset when writing this so I’m sorry if not much detail was in the post. The wedding is in July.
Back story. I was diagnosed after being ask to be in the wedding. At the time we were close. But drifted apart through treatment. As I didn’t have the energy or want to socialize.
