DAYLE LARTER / Nüni
A couple of years ago, shortly after having her second baby, Dayle underwent a risk reduction double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction - a choice she made on her own terms and considers a luxury that many women don’t ever get the chance to make.
Many young women are under the impression that it’s not relevant to them until they turn 50, and others avoid checking (or sometimes even touching!) their boobs for fear that they aren’t doing it right or might find something they wish they hadn’t. Dayle wants to do whatever is within her power to help change this mindset by helping increase self-awareness around women’s breast health in a modern, fun way. Boob care is the new self-care, with the added bonus of placing women in a much better position to recognise any changes.
Dayle believes that the more we educate, gain knowledge, practise self-care and nourish our bodies inside and out, the greater peace of mind we can achieve.
