“From Radical to Reconstruction”

“From Radical to Reconstruction”

A well-designed post-mastectomy bra is a wardrobe staple for women who have recently undergone breast cancer surgery. Changes in the body following breast surgery can leave many women feeling less than great about their bodies.

At A Fitting Experience Mastectomy Shoppe, we equip breast cancer patients with comfortable and supportive bras that can help them regain confidence after cancer treatment.

Some women undergo breast reconstruction surgery, while others opt for breast prosthesis. Whether you are considering reconstruction or breast forms, a mastectomy bra can be an ally in your recovery. Here are some of the best bras to buy after breast cancer surgery.

A Compression Bra

A mastectomy bra is designed with healing and support in mind. Following breast surgery, your doctor may recommend wearing a compression bra or vest to reduce the risk of lymphedema and post-surgical swelling or infection. Because you’ll have limited upper body mobility, you’ll also need a mastectomy bra with easy access features to allow for easy dressing.

The Amoena Pamela Seamless Compression Bra offers front closures to take the discomfort out of putting on and taking off your bra and comes in a range of attractive colors. It is hygienically prepared so you can wear it immediately out of the operating room and features targeted compression zones to support lymphatic drainage.

Mastectomy bras are available at varying compression levels to support your breast tissue and suit your particular needs. Find a compression garment with the right level of support for you.

A Seamless Leisure Bra

Leisure bras are specifically designed as comfortable, easy-to-wear alternatives to traditional bras, making them an ideal option for breast cancer patients. Soft yet supportive leisure bras are a great everyday option for women who want to go about their day without being distracted by uncomfortable or bulky underwear.

The Joy Comfort Mastectomy Bra has wide straps and bands that provide extra support without digging into incision areas. This bra includes removable padding and ruching at the center to offer gentle support and enhance your curves.

A Wire-Free Bra

Bras with wire-free cups and adjustable straps are also ideal for recovery. Many surgeons recommend wire-free bras after breast surgery because they are less likely to irritate incisions or cause a rash. Experiencing decreased sensation in your chest is common after breast surgery, so you may not notice the underwire poking or prodding at your skin, which could lead to an undetected infection.

The Amoena Mara Wire-Free Mastectomy Bra is one of the many affordable post-mastectomy bras that offer all-day comfort and come in various beautiful colors. The floral detail in the center adds a bit of feminine style to keep your spirits up on tougher days. It features breathable COOLMAX® ACTIVE fabric pockets inside the cups to hold your breast forms securely and help regulate your temperature.

A Comfortable Sports Bra

Exercising after surgery can help increase flexibility, boost your mood, and decrease the side effects of surgery. If your surgeon has approved you for exercise post-surgery, wearing a sports bra can help you safely return to the activities you love.

A post-mastectomy sports bra can help ensure a smooth healing process after breast surgery. While a standard bra can lead to rubbing and chafing of the breast or scar tissue, which can lead to infection, a sports bra provides a light level of compression that can promote increased blood flow to the surgical site and help prevent lymphedema.

A Pocketed Mastectomy Bra

Many mastectomy bras are designed for women who choose to wear breast prostheses. Whether you’ve undergone mastectomy surgery, a unilateral mastectomy, or a breast augmentation, many mastectomy bras feature pockets sewn into the bra cups that securely hold breast forms in place.
