The days and weeks following a breast surgery can be the most painful and uncomfortable days ever. You’re full of tubes, you can barely move and everything hurts. We know how rocky recovery can be, which is why we’ve made it our mission to design bras to soothe your sensitive body throughout your healing process. Whether you’ve had a mastectomy, lumpectomy, DIEP Flap, explant, revision or exchange surgery, you deserve to feel comforted by your bra while you heal. Keep reading to learn about our go-to super-soft post-surgical bralettes. They’re sure to help you feel your most comfortable!

The Best Front Closure Bra Ever 

The Rora Front Closure Bra is your best friend directly following your breast surgery. Whether you’ve had an intense double mastectomy or less invasive lumpectomy, the Front Closure was designed to help you dress with ease. This award-winning, extra-soft bralette is designed with easy front hooks that will allow you to maneuver easily and without discomfort. The buttery-soft modal fabric is the most comfortable material a post-mastectomy bra can be made of. It not only soothes irritated skin, but is also extremely gentle on surgical incisions and drain tube spots. You want a bra that is as gentle as possible on your incision areas while still giving you an even, smooth look under your outfit. You deserve to be comfortable at all times, but more than anything, you deserve to feel like the most beautiful version of yourself while you heal.

The Best Everyday Post-Mastectomy Bras 

We know most days aren't comfortable when you're healing from breast cancer surgery, which is why we created the Monica Bra, one of our softest and comfiest styles yet. We want you to be able to focus on healing, and not have your skin feel irritated by your post-mastectomy bra. The Monica is so soft, it will help you feel at ease while overcoming post-surgery pain, irritation and size changes. This everyday essential bra was thoughtfully designed with built-in pockets made to effortlessly accommodate expanders, breast prostheses or lightweight breast forms (like the AnaOno F(oo)B™ inserts) if you want to wear them! This style is boob-inclusive and works perfectly whether you are a uni-boober, flat, have reconstruction or are still au natural.  Monica is not only super-soft, but also comes underwire-free with cloud-soft seaming to prevent skin irritation. The removable pads can be easily taken in and out and provide extra coverage and confidence when you need a little boost!

The Leslie Bra is one of AnaOno’s softest, most supple styles. We insist on extreme comfort, and Leslie epitomizes that! This style is not only super soft, but also stretchy enough to pull over your head or step into after surgery when range of motion is limited! Designed to provide light-to-medium support, the Leslie delivers what you will need during the days and weeks following your breast surgeries—whether you’ve had a mastectomy, lumpectomy, reconstruction, explant, revision or exchange surgery. This wire-free post-mastectomy bralette is made with silkier-than-cotton modal material and features a plush double-layered lining. This lining is important, because it is extremely gentle on incision scars, allowing them to breathe the way they should through recovery!

The Leslie Bra looks great on Flat, Reconstructed Foobs and Au Natural Boobs!
