With the recent passing of #NoBraDay, conversations about breast cancer rose up again. It’s one of the most important things for every woman to educate herself about, as it affects most of us in one way or another at some point in our life. When a woman has breast cancer, she often undergoes some type of surgery on her breasts to remove the cancer, and even if she doesn’t, her breasts will change dramatically. On #ShopNTL, we know the importance of helping these brave women transition into their next stage of life, and that means we are proud to carry post-surgery and mastectomy bras that are not only practical, but are pretty and highlight her femininity. Here are some of the post-surgery bras available for our sisters who are conquering breast cancer.
Chloe Padded Wire-Free Lacy Mastectomy Bra with Pockets by Royce Lingerie
Here’s a bra built with all the right components of a mastectomy bra that also reminds us of the softness and delicacy of a casual sports bra. There is a little lace trimming that adorns the cups that makes it a little more flashy. This bra has moulded, seamless cups to help keep shape, while there are also pockets to easily slip in any prosthesis one may use. The straps can also be adjusted to your liking and the U-back is designed comfortably to also help keep your straps up.
Silver Post Surgery Wire-Free Bra by Royce Lingerie
Don’t be fooled by how bulky this bra may appear; the special X-STATIC silver fibre material it’s built with is incredibly soft against even the most sensitive areas. It also has anti-bacterial, temperature regulating, sturdy, and anti-odour capabilities that can have you feeling comfortable and confident to go through your day handling all of the changes you may experience. The cups are also double layered and also contain a pocket for a prosthetic as needed.
Charlotte Non Underwire Semi-Sheer Full Support Bra by Royce Lingerie
One who has recently went through surgery may scoff at the thought of wearing an underwired bra, and so this pretty white number is the perfect choice. The semi-sheer mesh along the top of the cups is a very modern element that makes this bra sexy, not just ideal. You’ll get the support you need and want with a 3 section cup as well as a bonus slimming feature. While this is not specifically a post-surgery bra, it is absolutely a recommended option.
Sadie Wire-Free Lace Bra With X-static by Royce Lingerie
This lovely black bra with contrast stitching is made with the same X-STATIC fibres we mentioned earlier, which is perfect for the health of a post-surgery chest. This bra also has a 3 section cup which is built for ideal support, and the underband helps keep everything locked and loaded. A wire free bra with support; who doesn’t want that?! While this bra offers full coverage, it’s still a beautiful option with a hint of cleavage, if that’s something you like.
Antoinette Wire Free Bra by Royce Lingerie
This bra is not specifically a post-surgery bra, but the cups feature a lining that will fit prosthetics, making it an option. The lace along the middle of the chest is removable, so you can decide how much lace or how much cleavage you would like. There are soft cups within the bra that sit nice and delicately against your breast, but also shapes your breasts nicely. The colour of this bra is nice and warm as well.
