Post mastectomy bras have a pocket inside the bra cup which can hold breast prosthesis in place. These bra types are also designed to carry the extra weight of silicone breast forms. Mastectomy bras may have a pocket in one cup or pockets in both cups.
There are post mastectomy bras for special occasions, exercise, leisure, sleep and bikini tops for swimming. Additionally, there are strapless bras, post-surgery bras, leisure bras and built-in shelf bras.
When purchasing a mastectomy bra, choose the cup size based on the larger breast. It is however, advisable to have a professional bra fitting after mastectomy, lumpectomy or breast reconstruction for determining new bra size and breast form size.
