Many women worry about their appearance after a mastectomy and wonder if they'll still look good in clothing. With the help of a breast form and a post-mastectomy bra, women can quickly regain self-confidence. Breast forms worn with a mastectomy bra give a feminine shape that enhances clothing of all types. Breast forms come in a variety of shapes and sizes and fit into special pockets in mastectomy bras. You'll find lots of options when it comes to selecting bras too.
A basic plain soft-cup mastectomy bra is made of soft nylon tricot that feels comfy against your skin. Inside is a cotton-polyester pocket that holds a breast form or prosthesis. The straps are a combination of satin and elastic for comfort and added support. This is a good basic bra that works well with most types of breast forms.
For a distinctively feminine look, a lace bandeau mastectomy bra adds a hint of lace along the border. Like other mastectomy bras, it comes with inside pockets that hold a breast form. The elastic straps give added support and help prevent bounce. This practical but stylish bra comes in several colors so you can express your individuality and have bras that work with all of your clothing.
Want added coverage? Mastectomy bras are available that fully cover the breast area. These bras offer wide side panels underneath the arms for added coverage and support. Made of polyester and a small amount of spandex for stretch, they have soft cotton pockets to hold your choice of breast form or prosthesis. Lace trim around the border makes them feminine and fun to wear. It's perfect for when you want added support and coverage without sacrificing comfort and style.
When comfort is your main objective, soft cup bras without under-wires feel good against your skin. The straps can be easily adjusted to conform to your shape. Wear one with or without a breast form for maximum comfort under all of your clothing.
After surgery, enjoy the ease of wearing a post-surgical bra with a front closure. The hooks make it easy to take on and off and the soft cups make it comfortable to wear. The soft cups have inside cotton pockets where you can insert a breast prosthesis or form.
Post-surgical camisoles with drain management have two drainage pouches that work with most drainage systems. Once your drains are removed, the pouches that hold them can be removed too. The seams are smooth to avoid suture irritation. Each camisole comes with two forms made of fiberfill to give your shape more balance and femininity.
When selecting a bra after a mastectomy, consider the clothes you'll be wearing it with. If you wear revealing clothing, a bra with lots of coverage may not work. Immediately after surgery, a camisole with drain management may work best. Of course, no one says you can't have several in different styles and colors. A number of bras and camisoles are available for all stages of your surgery and treatment to help you feel more confident in your clothing. Be sure to ask your doctor for advice when purchasing a breast form or prosthesis.
