“After a really difficult week, the hour I spent at Cancer Focus NI getting my bra fitted really lifted my spirits. It was wonderful to work with a specialist who knew exactly how to fit a bra to my body, and it made me feel so confident and like myself again after undergoing changes from my breast surgery.”

Styles of Bras

First-fit bra:
6-8 weeks after your breast cancer surgery you will be called back to the hospital to have a check-up with a breast care nurse, and they’ll want to issue you with your permanent prosthesis. It’s so important that you get a good fitting bra before you go for your prosthesis fitting.

Sleep bra:
When you are going for a mastectomy or a lumpectomy the sleep bra is an ideal bra to take into the hospital with you.
It is made of very soft cotton material. Its front opening if you have wounds that need to be dressed.

Compression bra:
If you are going for breast reconstruction surgery, the compression bra is what some surgeons would recommend. It gives a lot of support and adds a little bit of compression to help reduce fluid retention. The front-opening enables for any wounds to be checked at ease.

*This bra is to be worn 24hrs a day for 4 weeks to give the implant or reconstruction time to settle.

The T-shirt bra: This creates a very smooth look without any seams showing through and comes in a range of colours.

The strapless bra: This is slightly higher than a normal strapless bra to ensure the prosthesis is well enclosed in the pocket.

The camisole bra: This has a pretty lace panel, thinner straps and comes in black and white.
