Victoria's Secret is thinking about rolling out a new line of bras for women who have had mastectomies.

The popular lingerie chain got a petition with more than 118,00 signatures delivered to their New York City office asking for them to consider the new bra for survivors of breast cancer.

The petition was hand-delivered by Allana Maiden, who created it, and her mother, Debbie Barrett, who is a survivor of breast cancer and the inspiration for the petition.

Maiden and Barrett said they asked Victoria's Secret specifically because of the company's history of contributions to cancer research, according to MSN Now.

Mastectomy bras are known for not being very flattering for those who have to wear them, so Maiden is hoping the new bras can help survivors feel beautiful.
