Why choose a front-clasp bra?
Whether you are looking for recovery wear or your new favorite everyday bra, at A Fitting Experience Mastectomy Shoppe, the possibilities are endless.
But why might you need a front closure mastectomy bra model? Easy: for the simple and effective convenience of the design. After most types of breast surgery, including lumpectomies, mastectomies, and breast reconstruction, many women experience limited mobility and range of motion in the shoulders, arms, and neck.
This means that back-closures that are the norm for standard bras become even more of a hassle to fasten and unfasten throughout the day.
Opting for a front closure takes care of this issue. In fact, even women who don’t experience mobility limitations may choose to use front closing bras after wearing one for the first time for the simple convenience that they offer.
Of all the different types of front closure bras available to women living post-mastectomy, lumpectomy, or breast reconstruction surgery, post-surgical bras may be the most important.
Typically, mobility and range of motion are the most limited in the recovery period directly post-surgery. This is because, at this point, the surgical sites are still healing and should not be stretched or impaired to mitigate the risk of re-opening the wounds.
Also, women typically continue to experience weakness and soreness in the arms and shoulders during this time that makes reaching behind the back to open a bra both uncomfortable and challenging.
Look for compression bra recovery wear with a front closure that is either hook-and-eye or zipper for easy fastening. The best models will include adjustable settings so the wearer can loosen the fit to handle swelling or tighten the fit as the swelling goes down. For compression bras your recovery is also essential that the shoulder bands themselves can be adjusted at the front rather than the back of the bra.
