Mastectomy Bras Category
For those women who have undergone a mastectomy or a lumpectomy, finding a comfortable bra can be quite challenging. Regular bras will not provide a woman with the proper support that she needs. These bras offer women the option to add prosthetic breasts inside of the bra if they choose not to have breast reconstruction surgery. This gives the woman confidence even after having one or both breasts removed for whatever reason. These bras are affordable and stylish and offer everything the woman may need.
Because the healing process is so important after a mastectomy, the proper bra is vital. Mastectomy bras are perfect for post mastectomy patients and are usually equipped with two discrete pockets where the prosthetic breasts may be placed. These prosthetic breasts are made from silicone that is made to look and feel like real breast tissue. These bras along with the silicone forms create the look of real breasts after a mastectomy. The silicone breast is placed inside the pocket and is held in place against the body so it looks like the breast is actually there. These bras come in a variety of styles and materials that offer the comfort and support the woman needs. They can also be made to look like a traditional bra with hooks either in the front or back. The woman also has the choice of satin, lace cotton materials. These bras are also great for women who have naturally uneven breasts and need extra padding on one side or the other. These bras can be found in many clothing stores and on the internet.
After a mastectomy, the doctor will often recommend to wear a sports bra or compression bra. A mastectomy bra should not be worn until the doctor have given permission. If you have not had both breasts removed, pick a size based on the larger breast. If you have had both removed, pick a bra that will suite what size you would like to be. Once you have done so, find the correct silicone prosthetic forms that you are most comfortable with. These bras are great for women who want to regain their confidence after their mastectomy.
