Life can feel very different after having a Mastectomy or Lumpectomy. Any woman knows how important it is to feel confident, comfortable and care-free in their wardrobe choices.
Understanding the variation in breast forms and the amazing range of bras can reduce your anxiety and allow you to make a decision that suits your bodies needs.
To ensure you get the best service, it is important to speak with a professional bra fitter to be fitted for a new breast form about 6 to 8 weeks after your surgery. A specialist bra fitter can assist you to find a modern breast form, a range of bras and swimwear that fits and makes you feel amazing.
The new breast forms offer a wide variety of shapes, sizes and weights to closely match your remaining breast or, with a bilateral mastectomy, allow you to pick the size you’ve always wanted. There are also breast forms available that can be used when exercising and swimming to be able to continue activities as you normally would. Post mastectomy camisole bras from Amoena combine beautiful form with function to bring you perfectly constructed pieces that accentuate your natural shape and provide cover when you need it. Adjustable, breathable and with so many styles to choose from, there’s no reason why you can’t wear your favorite neck line in total confidence.
