Women's Mastectomy Bras
As with any major surgery, it's important to put time into preparing yourself for recovery. Wearing a bra might be the last thing on your mind. However, if you've undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy, mastectomy bras are specially designed to help you regain your natural shape after surgery. You need a bra that's designed with full cups for a natural look and feel. Fortunately, that's exactly what you'll find right here at Kohl's. We understand the benefits of a well-fitting, supportive bra with a superior fit. Rest assured, you'll find the right style that provides comfort and gives you an extra boost of confidence.
Types of Mastectomy Bras
A mastectomy bra can provide sufficient comfort immediately following surgery. Not only do they have special pockets to accommodate a prosthesis, but they have a soft inner lining that won't rub against sensitive skin or scars as they heal. When it comes to finding an ideal style bra, your specific needs and where you are in the healing process generally determine which type you might need.
Front & Back Closure Bra
Breast surgery often affects your shoulder rotation. Therefore, a front closure will make it easier to put on and take off.
Tops & Camisoles
Opt for a top with stretchy, lightweight fabric that's soft. With adjustable shoulder straps and padded bust cups, you're sure to have the support needed to get you through the day.
Zip Front Sports Bra
From walking and yoga to cycling and jogging, a supportive sports bra is an essential item for a secure fit. Compression can help hold your skin in place and prevent it from shifting and stretching.
What to Look for in Mastectomy Bras
A mastectomy can have a significant impact on a woman's physical and psychological well-being. When searching for post-surgical bras, let comfort be your guide. You need bras and other clothing items that are easy to put on, soft, and well-fitting. Here's what you should look out for:
- Soft, breathable fabric
- Adjustable straps and closures
- No underwire
- Seams that don't rub or irritate your skin
Other Clothing Essentials
After surgery, you're likely to experience some level of pain, sensitivity, and restriction in your upper body. It will take time to adapt to your new post-surgery shape and even thinking about clothing after surgery can make many women feel anxious. However, when it comes to finding clothing, don't trade fashion for comfort. It's all about finding what works for you and what makes you feel most confident. At Kohl's, you're sure to find just what you need with our wide selection of women's clothing. You'll want loose garments that are easy to put on and won't interfere with your recovery. We carry various dresses and women's tops that are long and roomy. And we all know how important a good night's rest is. Be sure to also peruse our selection of soft pajamas with front-buttons for those days that you just want to rest and take it easy.
Finding Your Style
You can easily draw attention away from areas that you don't want to highlight by adding accessories. This creates a focal point elsewhere for people to focus on. For instance, simply adding a belt can help accentuate your waist while wearing a skirt can draw attention to your legs. And don't forget about the benefits of striking jewelry. An elegant necklace or pretty scarf is an effective way to draw attention upwards. Choosing the right clothes, shoes and accessories can help you feel more in control.
Be proud of yourself, and love yourself. A great bra goes a long way and clothing can help provide you with a new normal. No matter what style, design, or color you're looking for, you're sure to find just what you need at Kohl's.
