One category that isn’t discussed nearly enough in the lingerie industry is post-surgery and mastectomy bras. Yet, while you may not hear about them often, great innovations and beautiful designs are being created all the time.
At HerRoom, my team of expert buyers is dedicated to supporting post-surgery breast cancer patients and survivors by seeking out the most elegant, functional, and comfortable bra options on the market.
After undergoing a mastectomy, it may seem like your bra selection has suddenly been whittled down to almost nothing. On the contrary, brands like Amoena and Anita have a variety of bras to choose from, including both everyday and fashion styles.
While you need different bra styles for certain outfits, other mastectomy bras are an important part of your journey to a full recovery. For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I’ve decided to round up some of the most fashion-forward post-surgery bras HerRoom has to offer.
1. The Compression Recovery Bra
While you’re recovering from surgery, you’ll need a compression bra. Compression is necessary to help with blood flow and prevent fluid build-up. This bra provides comfortable compression and is soft enough that it can be worn during the day and to bed.
Close compression hold in front
Wireless, unpadded and molded stretch cups
Hook-and-eye front closure
Tall, smoothing sides
2. The Leisure Bra
Every woman needs a good bra for R&R time. Perfect for sleep or a casual night in, this leisure bra gives you just the right amount of comfort and support you need.
Extra soft microfiber body
Wireless, seamless cups lined with pocket for removable padding (included)
U-shaped back with lace trim
3. The Front Closure Wireless Bra
Front closure bras are popular because they’re convenient to put on and take off. This particular bra also creates a natural shape and is comfortable for leisure and all-day wear. While it is made for post-surgical purposes, many women wear it for comfort.
Wireless, seamless cups
Front hook-and-eye closure
Pockets for optional breast forms
