The fitting of post mastectomy garments is a critical step in a woman’s recovery after breast surgery and remains vital in helping a woman to feel good about her sensuality. The bodacious fitting boudoir and ebulient personalities are loving, welcoming evidence of the atmosphere portrayed throughout the entire company! With the right guidance, your mastectomy bra fitting can be a smooth, easy experience. 

BEFORE BREAST SURGERY 

Consider visiting our mastectomy department to get acquainted with items that are available for you after surgery. It is an opportunity to see the various bras and prostheses (sometimes called ‘breast forms’) that are available. (The hospital usually provides a post-surgical garment.)

FOLLOWING SURGERY

There are post-surgical garments that are soft and supportive and easier to manage while you are recuperating. There are leisure forms that are comfortable and functional.  

WHEN TO SCHEDULE A FITTING

In most cases, doctors will permit patients to schedule a fitting for a mastectomy bra from six to eight weeks after the initial surgery. It is most important that your incision site has completely healed prior to being fitted for a breast prosthesis and mastectomy bras. 

CHOOSING THE RIGHT BREAST FORM AND BRA

There are countless options and varied styles available to you when you begin shopping for a mastectomy bra. Whether you are looking for something feminine or you are more focused on comfort and function, our mastectomy fitter can assist you. It is a good idea to try on several different styles of mastectomy bras to be certain the post-mastectomy prosthesis will fit the bra properly, the band size is correct and the symmetry is as it should be.Our mastectomy fitter will help you through every step of the fitting, conducting the necessary measurements and helping you try on each bra. Be honest and upfront about what you like and do not like to ensure correct sizing and ideal comfort. As a general rule, it is a good idea to purchase three mastectomy bras at a time: one to wear, one to wash, one to rest. 

WHEN TO SCHEDULE RETURN FITTINGS

Most insurance providers cover the purchase of at least three bras every six months with a prescription; therefore, you should feel comfortable establishing a relationship with your mastectomy fitter and scheduling semiannual fittings.You may purchase a new prosthesis every two years. Weight fluctuations are also a common reason to schedule regular fittings. It is recommended that you have a fitting at least once a year even if you do not think you have gained or lost a significant amount of weight.
