Mastectomy camisoles are some of the versatile and convenient garments that a woman can have in her mastectomy-wear arsenal this summer.
Whether you are looking for your new favorite top for hitting the beach or going to yoga, keeping cool at the office or simply lounging with a good book at home, a mastectomy camisole can simply do it all. Sophisticated enough to pair with your go-to blazer yet secure enough to wear alone, camisoles are the ultimate wardrobe basics.
At A Fitting Experience Mastectomy Shoppe, our American Board for Certification Orthotics, Prosthetics, and Pedorthis-certified fitters can help you find the right fit for one or all of the following must-have mastectomy camisoles to keep you cool and in control this summer.
1. Amoena Valetta Camisole with Shelf Bra
Best for daily and leisure wear
Sleek and sexy yet understated, Amoena’s Valetta Camisole with Shelf Bra comes in at the top of our list as the ultimate basic camisole for women living post-surgery.
As comfortable and classic as a white tee, the Valetta offers a streamlined design that is universally flattering without falling flat. This is accomplished through details such as the double spaghetti straps, which lend the piece a ready-to-wear look as well as additional support for breast forms.
The integrated pocketed shelf bra is discreet and seamless and features molded foam cups that shape and support your silhouette, secured with an undetectable elastic bottom band.
Pair this look with any breast prosthesis, including leisure forms, full forms, and symmetry shapers, for a simple yet chic summer look.
2. ABC Zip-Front Post-Surgical Camisole with Drain Management
Best for recovery wear
Of course, post-surgical bras are an absolute necessity when it comes to proper healing during the recovery period, but did you know that you also have the option of opting for a post-surgical camisole?
Just like it’s bra counterpart, a post-surgical camisole affords all the features that you would expect in recovery wear that help make the healing process as smooth and as comfortable as possible.
The ABC Zip-Front Closure Post-Surgical Camisole with drain management is one of the most popular models available today. Developed by the trusted professionals at American Breast Care, this camisole caters to your every recovery need.
Because not every woman maintains the same range of motion and capability after her surgery, the camisole is designed to allow for customization. It accomplishes this by incorporating a zipper front closure with a comfort strip pad to prevent zipper irritation to sensitive skin as well as removable shoulder clasps for step-in entry.
This camisole also takes care of drainage pouches and tubes with detachable VELCRO® drainage pouches that can be easily and securely fastened to the inner elastic band.
Finally, the designers at ABC understand that, just because you are recovering, it does not mean you are not worried about symmetry, which is why each of their post-surgical camisoles comes complete with two removable leisure forms.
3. Luisa Racer Back Yoga Mastectomy Tank
Best for moderate to high impact sports and activities
The 100% made in the USA Luisa brand delivers with this classic, easy to wear sport mastectomy camisole and tank top.
Constructed of a super soft and moisture-wicking fabric blend, the Luisa Racer Back Yoga Mastectomy Tank will keep you cool during even the hottest of hot yoga sessions.
The design is constructed to keep breast forms in place with its contrast color integrated sports bra that offers a secure yet discreet hold in down dog, warrior pose, and every move in-between.
