FAQ's About Compression Bras?
What's the difference between a Post-Mastectomy Bra and Regular Bra?
Inside the bra cup of post-mastectomy bras, there are pockets designed to hold breast prostheses in place. They also help to allow for the extra weight of a silicone breast form. While in the case of regular bras, no specialized bra pockets are present to hold the breast form in place.
How will I know which bra will work the best for me?
Every woman is designed differently. It's best to be fitted by a certified mastectomy fitter before you purchase your post-mastectomy bra. The fitter will consult you to determine if a seamless molded cup works better than a soft cup bra. Regardless of how much you think you know about bras, it's always best to see how it fits on you. When choosing a bra, you want to consider three things: comfort, confidence, and ease of wear.
Does ABC Compression Bra have front closure?
Yes, it has a front closure with easy to use hook and eye front closure.
