Whether you or someone you are close to is having a mastectomy, lumpectomy or are undergoing radiation, there is going to be a lot of new information to absorb. One small part of the process is buying new types of bras. It’s very important to talk to your doctor to know exactly what you need for treatment and each phase of post-surgery.
I discovered the Pink Bra and think it’s an invaluable online resource for this category. They have a great selection of bras and other specialty products you will need. They break it down by category, helping you to navigate items needed for each phase of surgery and reconstruction.
Here are a few must-have items:
Compression bra-The Amoena Patricia Compression bra is a great choice post-surgery. It’s front-close, has wide adjustable velcro straps, is made in a wicking fabric to keep you cool and comes in band size 32-52.
All-around comfort bra-The Jodee Freedom Lounge Bra is great following surgery and for long afterwards. It has pockets for breast forms, has ultra-comfort straps and closes in front for ease. Size S-XXL.
Front Close bra-The Anita Salvia Bra closes front or back, helping with limited mobility following surgery. Available in size 32A to 50C.
Wirefree bra-The Amoena Lara Molded Soft Cup bra (featured above) is a pretty t-shirt bra with breathable mesh pockets for inserts. It’s seamless, wirefree and molded to help your cups look even and smooth. Available in 32A to 40D in many beautiful colors.
