Finding the right bra after a mastectomy can be challenging due to the changes in your body. During recovery your body needs support and comfort to expedite healing, but supportive bras don’t need to be bland or boring.
Here at A Fitting Experience Mastectomy Shoppe and at MastectomyShop.com you will find an incredible selection of functional and attractive bras by the most well-known designers in the business.
To help you get started on your recovery journey, we have selected 11 of the best mastectomy bras that are both pretty and practical.
Post surgery bras are an essential part of your recovery. They use gentle compression at key points around your chest to prevent lymphedema and boost blood flow. The Anita Lymphofit Compression bra is the perfect blend of beauty and function. It is the ideal bra to lift your spirits and support your body in the weeks immediately after your mastectomy.
Unlike most mastectomy bras, the Anita Lymphofit does not contain pocketed cups. It is recommended that you avoid wearing breast forms until your incisions heal completely.
The Anita Lymphofit bra is constructed from a soft stretch knit that is textured to massage minor lymph nodes and subcutaneous tissue to prevent fluid build up. The high, wide back back offers support and comfort without rear fasteners to irritate your skin. Instead, the bra features a front closure on the outside of the bra that allows for easy dressing.
To help speed up your recovery process you need to rest as much as possible during the first few weeks after surgery. When it comes to rest and relaxation, comfort is key. The Amoena Frances Leisure bra is so comfortable you can wear it to sleep.
The Frances is constructed from ultra-soft cotton that is gentle on your skin and offers optimal airflow to keep you cool and dry. The soft cups feature cotton pockets to hold lightweight foam breast forms, while high, wide back and side panels support your body and prevent the bra from riding up and chaffing sensitive skin.
The Frances comes in a range of gorgeous colors and patterns from delicate floral prints to soft pastel shades to give you a bra that is pretty and practical.
Another amazingly comfortable bra to add to your post mastectomy wardrobe is the Coobie V-Neck Bralette. The wire free bralette is unlined but stretches to accommodate bust sizes from 32A to 42DD. It is the perfect item for layering under cozy sweaters and t-shirts and comes with double layer molded cups with removable inserts to give you added shape and support.
The adjustable straps can also be converted to give you a racerback bra, and the super soft stretch microfiber fabric comes in over 50 different colors and prints so you are sure to find something to suit your personal style.
No breast cancer survivors wardrobe is complete without a good selection of t-shirt bras. A t-shirt bra is designed to lie discreetly under any garment to give you a smooth and sexy silhouette, and no bra does it better than the TruLife Lexi.
The Lexi is constructed from specialized two-way stretch powernet fabric designed to support you all day long. Seamless molded cups contain bilateral pockets made from COOLMAX moisture wicking material with side vents under the arms for exceptional airflow.
Wide adjustable straps sit slightly higher on the shoulders than standard bra straps. However, the altered position helps to better distribute the weight of your silicone breast forms and remaining breast tissue across your back.
The Amoena Magdalena mastectomy bra is made from comfortable bonded fabric that stretches and supports your body. High back panels and a wide under bust band work to smooth your back to help you look your best and feel more confident in your clothes.
Bilateral cups feature microfiber pockets to hold a breast prosthesis, and wide adjustable straps can be adjusted to suit your comfort level.
Feel like royalty with the ABC Lace Mastectomy bra. The Princess bra offers all the functional features you need from your post mastectomy bra with gorgeous feminine embellishments to make you look as good as you feel.
The Princess bra is constructed from a special nylon/spandex inner that holds you firmly and comfortably and is gentle on your skin. Molded wire free cups contain soft cotton cups to hold a breast prosthesis on either side.
The exterior is embellished with fine black floral lace from the top of the cups and extends slightly behind the wide under bust band. The wide straps feature delicate scalloped edges and are fully adjustable to suit your body.
Although a wire free bra is generally recommended during your recovery period, having an underwire bra in your wardrobe is a great idea for after you have healed to offer you unparalleled support. The Amoena Annette underwire bra is one of the most comfortable underwires on the market.
The Annette features lightly padded cups and underbust bands to prevent wires from irritating or digging into the skin. Wide padded straps are easily adjusted for a more comfortable fit and feature a lace overlay for a gorgeous feminine touch.
The nude fabric cups contain soft microfiber pockets to securely hold your breast forms and are covered in a black lace overlay to give the bra a look of sophistication
If you are looking for a bra that gives you more coverage but won’t make you look frumpy, the Jodee Snow White Camisole bra is the answer.
The Snow White camisole bra has a seamless construction making it perfect for wearing under your favorite figure hugging outfits. A soft stretch lace panel between the pocketed cups offers superior coverage for your decollete while still letting you feel sexy and feminine.
Wide padded straps protect you from neck and back discomfort by distributing the weight evenly across your shoulders, while high back panels offer added security for your breast forms and extra support.
Protect your posture and support your bust with a longline bra. Longline bras offer the highest level of support and comfort possible, but you don’t need to sacrifice style for function. The Jodee Unique Longline bra is as gorgeous as it is supportive.
The Unique bra features an extra wide under bust band that extends down to your natural waist to support your back and securely hold your breast forms. The cups are made from polyester tricot with the upper part of the cups covered in beautiful lace that extends up onto the straps.
Having a mastectomy doesn’t mean that your days of wearing strapless dresses and tops are over. The Amoena Barbara convertible bra offers you the versatility you need to help you work those tricky fashion styles.
The molded cups and seamless construction contour to your body which means that the bra is undetectable even under tight fitting garments. The underbust band features cushioned silicone gel to keep the bra in place. The adjustable straps can be converted into racerback, halter or straight styles as well as removed altogether for strapless styles.
Exercise is an important part of your recovery from breast surgery. But, you need the right sports bras to give you the support you need during your workout.
The Anita Extreme Control sports bra is made from moisture wicking material that is soft and gentle on your skin and is designed to keep you cool and dry. The three section cups feature terry cloth pockets to hold your breast forms and manage perspiration.
The ergonomic tailored back provides a mesh panel for enhanced breathability and the padded straps sit high on the shoulder to prevent them from slipping even during high intensity exercise.
