What are the benefits of a mastectomy bra?
After any operation, skin and scar tissue needs time to heal.
Your underwear can have a big impact on the healing process which is why post surgery bras are made from super soft materials such as cotton and with a focus on all day comfort. They are specifically tailored to ensure you receive the level of comfort necessary for you to heal properly. Here are just some of the specific design considerations that make a mastectomy bra versatile enough to ensure your healing process is as stress-free as possible.
- Adjustable straps - A prosthetic bra with a fully adjustable strap gives you greater control over the fit and comfort level of your bra. This can help when you want your bra for a range of occasions, giving you the freedom to adjust the amount of lift and push your bra provides.
Plush pocket materials - The pouches within the cups are made from soft, plush materials ensuring that the area of your breast which is most in need stays irritation free.
Wide underbands - Mastectomy bras with wide underbands ensure that your breast form stays securely in place. They work well for reducing any back pain that may have resulted from the change in your breast shape.
There are also other design features to give you the right solution to all your post need, ranging from gentle underwiring to variable fastening options. Many mastectomy bras come designed with supportive panelling and seams that can also hide scar tissue.
