Bras for Cancer Patients
After breast cancer surgery, you may be left wondering: Are there bras for cancer patients that are still comfortable and sexy? The answer is a definitive “YES!”
Breast cancer survivors can find bras and other undergarments that can help restore self-confidence and look attractive at the same time.
Right after surgery
In the immediate post-surgery period, mastectomy camisoles and recovery bras are often the best option for hiding bandages and prioritizing your comfort.
Both options typically come with internal pockets that are compatible with drainage tubes and bags and foam prostheses to provide a natural silhouette. They also often feature easy-to-manage front closures for women with a limited range of motion.
Six weeks (or so) later
With doctor approval, most women can begin wearing post-mastectomy bras that are made specifically for their new needs about six weeks post-surgery.
Unlike standard bras, few of these bras utilize underwire to optimize comfort. But this does not mean a lack of support! Fully adjustable straps give you the option of customizable support while wider underbands offer comfortable, secure support from below.
Many mastectomy bras feature a higher bust rise to conceal scarring and keep breast prosthesis in pace.
