How To Choose A Bra After Breast Cancer Treatment

« Previous


Your breasts are likely to be different now than they were before.  With the right style and fit, there is no reason for people to know you have a lumpectomy or a mastectomy.

There are experts who can help you choose a bra. Many department stores and some pharmacies provide this service free of charge.

If you wear a prostheses, do not limit yourself to mastectomy bras which have a sewn in pocket.  You or a seamstress can sew a pocket into any bra. Just make sure the prosthesis fits properly in the bra in order to give you the proper shape and comfort.

Women who have undergone this experience suggest that  you consider purchasing at least one sexy bra to help you feel sexy and beautiful from within.

Check your insurance before you go shopping to see if it will cover bras. If it is not clear from reading the policy, call the insurance company. The number is listed on your insurance card.

Think about taking a friend with you who can encourage you and help make shopping a positive experience.
