The foundation of any outfit, we all know the importance of having a well fitted and comfortable bra. This is even more crucial following surgery. Confidence starts with comfort, so whether you’re looking for something easy to wear following shoulder surgery, or a prosthesis bra after a mastectomy, discover our post-surgery bra range to find your perfect fit.
FRONT CLOSURE – ideal for ease
As the name suggests front closure bras fasten at the front and offer comfort, ease of dressing and convenience. Ideal for anyone suffering from back and neck pain, or limited shoulder movement following surgery, we have a number of front closing bra options. Berlei’s Wirefree Post Surgery Bra has the added versatility of front and back opening which aids in easy dressing.
WIDE STRAPS – ideal for support
Bras with wide straps offer comfort and support without adding strain to the shoulders. They also help prevent straps from digging into your shoulders.
With wider straps Caprice’s Cotton Pro Post-Surgery Bra is made from cotton and a touch of elastane for ultimate comfort. For the ultimate in comfort, Fayreform’s Front Closure Bra has wide foam straps which won’t pinch, tug or slip off. The padded cushion straps also help to relieve shoulder pressure and prevent straps from digging in. Great for fuller busts, it has innovative criss-cross elastic at the back which adjusts with you for a custom fit.
WIREFREE BRAS – ideal for comfort
Also known as a soft-cup bra, Wirefree bras don’t have an underwire sewn into them. Offering a high level of comfort they provide gentle support without being restrictive.
Great for everyday comfort, Ruby & Bloom’s Front Fastening Bra is a non-padded, wirefree bra with a double-layered lower cup to help support the bust.
Wirefree bras such as Berlei’s Post Surgery Deluxe Bra have soft moulded cups for comfort and additional support.
PROSTHESIS BRAS – ideal for shape
Specifically designed for mastectomy surgery our bras feature inner pockets to accommodate prostheses.
Caprice’s Angelica Prosthesis Moulded Soft-Cup Bra with cotton pockets is a supportive option after post-surgery. Soft and comfortable, this moulded cup bra provides an even shape and a smooth finish under clothing.
Fashionable and flattering, Berlei’s Post Surgery Deluxe Bra is another great option. In a pretty pale pink, it has the added benefit of cotton lined cups which are breathable and soft against the skin.
Designed for Berlei’s post-surgery bras, Berlei’s lightweight Soft-Form Bra Inserts are soft against the skin, and have an easy fit for your personal comfort.
