From our personal day to day experience we know how challenging it can be for women with healthy breasts to get the right fit, a well-fitting bra is essential, especially for those who have undergone mastectomy or reconstruction after breast cancer.
Post-mastectomy and lumpectomy procedures vary. Some women opt for a prosthesis, which is essentially a breast form (silicone, foam or fiber-fill) that is placed inside of a bra or attached to the chest wall. Other women choose to undergo surgical reconstruction that will involve the insertion of an implant.
All at the end need properly fitted bra to avoid any possible complications, feel and look great. Best fitted bra and proper fitted breast form, helps bring back confidants. John Hopkins Medicine advises that mastectomy boutiques and specialty shops carry a variety of prosthetics and garments. Certified and properly trained fitters, who are skilled at fitting women who have undergone treatment for breast cancer, are big part of women’s future new journey.
