    How To Wear Drain Management Clothing 

    Getting dressed while wearing  surgical drains can be a struggle. Tugging tubes can be highly irritating and restrict your movement, making it difficult to find clothing that won’t make post surgery recovery harder. Enter drain management clothing: These specially-designed pieces are comfortable, roomy, easy to wear, accessible, and often include belts and pockets to hold your surgical drains in place. 

    The  Miena Robe with Drain Management is the perfect example -- not only is it made from ultra-stretchy and comfortable modal fabric, but it includes a dedicated internal belt with a hidden pocket to hold your drains. An easy-on, easy-off style ensures you won’t strain sore areas while getting dressed. With the Miena Robe, and other drain management clothing, you can walk around comfortably and confidently knowing that the drains are secure and won’t yank on your surgical sites.

    How To Wear Breast Forms

    After your mastectomy, you may opt to wear breast forms to create the appearance of a breast shape under clothing. With many different shapes, materials, and sizes to choose from, finding the right one for you may be a bit tricky. 

    To find the best form for your body, you can first think about the purpose of your breast form. For example, a lightweight breast form may be better for lounging at home or working out, while a silicone breast form is better for going out. Plenty of folks have more than one breast form type so they can change them out depending on the occasion. You may also want to enlist the help of a specialist who can help you find the right size and shape for your needs. 

    Once you’ve chosen your forms, you’re going to need a bra that’ll keep your breast form secure and supported throughout the day. Pocketed post-mastectomy bras are designed to keep your forms in place without any slippage or movement. To learn more about the different breast forms available and tips on how to wear them, check out our  Breast Forms 101 guide.
