There are two kinds of mastectomy bras. Post-surgery mastectomy bras are specially designed to maximise comfort and support your healing process after breast surgery, and may feature some form of compression to help reduce swelling in the breast and underarm area. Other mastectomy bras are designed for wear after your mastectomy has fully healed, and include features such as pockets for breast forms, which can fill out the shape of your missing breast under clothes. Both types of mastectomy bra are usually made from extremely soft materials like this bamboo bra, in order to properly care for the tender skin around the surgery area as it heals. Mastectomy bras are also unlikely to feature underwires, as these can press and rub against sore skin and prevent healing.
