I've recently been working with some of the Modern Woman Show vendors for their head shots and upcoming blog posts but I took kind to this particular store. I feel it has SO much to offer and I think everyone has someone in their lives touched by cancer or some sort of situation dealing with the lovely services that they offer. I just wanted to share a little bit about this great store and it's vision.
CEO/Founder, Moneca McLean, was inspired to open Red Lotus through her own personal experience of supporting women close to her who had experienced breast surgery. Through witnessing their journey, her desire to open a boutique that was warm, tranquil, fun, compassionate and inspiring became her mission. She was determined to provide all women the opportunity to shop in a retail environment where they would have access to a beautiful selection of clothing that is fashionable, fun, sexy and (of course) comfortable! Providing her clients the opportunity to feel confident and leave carrying a higher positive body image is what it’s all about.
“Red Lotus is a space where myself and my team, can actively support women by helping them to embrace a positive body image, feel confident in who they are and how they walk in the world before, during and after their breast surgery. I believe that how we feel - affects how we heal.” Moneca is incredibly proud to be the CEO/Founder of this unique, one of a kind boutique in Saskatchewan!
Red Lotus' clothing line, Amoena designs products to provide the best breast health for ALL women. The breast support offered in their active wear, swimwear, lounge wear and lingerie is like no other! The textiles their global design team selects are of the highest quality. The lingerie lines include a seduction line, t-shirt line, everyday wear and active wear line.
At Red Lotus we believe that to achieve great healing, our health must be addressed based on our entire being, not just the ailing part of our bodies. We take great pride in providing our clients with exceptional products and services that are tailored to meet their unique and individual needs. Our goal is to offer each client options that will encourage and support their physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual well-being.
Every detail in Red Lotus’ space was designed with the unique needs of its clients in mind. Clients can expect to experience an atmosphere like no other. Red Lotus’ tranquil, private and Zen environment creates an amazing spa like retail experience.
Why I named my shop Red Lotus? The Lotus is highly regarded for its strength, resilience, flexibility and beauty. A lotus seed can sit dormant for years, yet if tossed into dark murky water, it finds strength to grow, it is resilient enough to begin to thrive and with enough time and patience, a beautiful vibrant flower begins to emerge. The Lotus stem is flexible enough that it can be bent almost completely in half and not break, it will rise and its beauty is defined in the many colors – each individual and unique. Each color of the Lotus represents something and the Red Lotus represents “Love and Compassion”.
Every day my team and I have the honor of supporting women who have dealt with incredibly dark and challenging situations and with each of them, even through their fears, tears and uncertainty, we see their incredible strength, their resilience and their ability to power through all that life has thrown at them. They ARE strong, resilient, flexible and beautiful.
Red Lotus’ certified fitters specialize in women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, women who have had mastectomy, lumpectomy, breast reduction, augmentation surgery, and/or women in transition who require the use of breast forms and symmetry products.
Red Lotus’ exceptional products and services are designed for ALL women and the shop has been embraced and received since our opening in September 2015.
