Sexy & Feminine Post-Mastectomy Bras
There are many things that one needs after a mastectomy, including lifestyle changes and self-love. The most important thing, however? Support. From your friends, family, and of course, your bras. Shopping for bras after your procedure can be overwhelming, which is why the best post-mastectomy bras are specially designed to match your new shape and the lasting changes in your body. They feature spandex stretch pockets to hold prosthetics or inserts in place, lack of underwire, and easily adaptable straps to fit all shapes and sizes. Brave and beautiful women deserve ultimate style and comfort after their mastectomy, and you’ll feel at your sexiest with the following bras.
As a breast cancer survivor herself, Cosabella co-founder Valeria Campello understands the need to feel comfortable and sexy in your own skin post-mastectomy. This is why she helped develop the Cosabella Renew Collection. The Valeria bralette was one of the first bralettes on the market designed specifically for post-surgery wear. It’s made with 100% wire-free light compression in soft, rich microfiber, side openings for drainage tubes and inserts, plus adjustable straps and interior form pockets to promote healing. It’s the perfect blend of beauty and wellness, helping the one in eight women who will develop breast cancer in their lifetime (like Campello) to feel their very best.
Coming soon at Cosabella: the Eleanor for sensitive wear during radiation treatment. Prosthetic pockets also allow this bra to be used as a solution post-surgery. The Cathy is designed for post-surgery use, to easily shape breast forms for either augmentation, reduction, or reconstruction. This bralette focuses on support, shaping, and compression to stimulate the lymphatic system as the body recovers.
