Finding surgical bras after breast cancer surgery can be challenging and tiring. We're here to assist and simplify the process.

Not all breast cancer surgeries are the same, and it is not always evident which kind of bra you should wear afterwards. To assist you in discovering the optimal post-surgery bra for you, we have compiled a convenient selection of bras for various procedures.

Bras For Immidialaty After Surgery

After any chest surgery you want a bra that is comfortable, soft and customizable. That's where the Post-Surgical Front Closure Bra with Drain Management Belt attached. Its drain pockets provide a comfortable fit for removable drains, and once they're gone you can remove the pockets too. Transform it into a post-op front closure bra that suits your needs! The soft, stretchy front closure fabric with adjustable straps make it easy to find the perfect fit so you can feel comfortable post-surgery. Enjoy the freedom of a fashionable look that goes right along with your healing journey.

During recovery, it can be hard to get bras on and off. That's what makes this front-closure bra perfect for wearing during recovery. The front clasp makes easier for you to get dressed.

Following surgery, your skin might be sensitive and your incisions easily irritated. The Post-Surgical Bra is made with a super-soft material that will prevent irritation that might be caused by other fabrics. Because this bra is so soft and comfy, you'll want to wear it far beyond recovery.
