The partial or total loss of a breast due to cancer or from an accident or illness can be a serious blow to a woman’s self esteem and lifestyle. A prosthesis bra can greatly improve the quality of life for anyone recovering from a mastectomy. This simple device when used with prosthetic breasts can help a woman to feel sexy and confident.
Many women in recovery consider the chance to change drastically and forgo any type of mastectomy bra or breast forms. These spirited women often change their mind once they are fully recovered and realize that no only do all their clothes no longer fit well and flatter them, but physically something is just “wrong”. The weight and natural movement of breasts means that the body expects to react and feel a certain way depending upon the activity undertaken. The absence of this weight and mass may seem unsettling. Prosthesis bras can definitely help with balance and a feeling of completeness.
The first bras designed for women recovering from breast surgery were often uncomfortable, bulky and not well suited for keeping a prosthesis properly in place throughout the day. Today, the major bra manufacturers have finally heard the plea of women from all parts of the world who demand a better mastectomy bra. These bras now are barely distinguishable from standard bras. Comfortable straps and materials like micofiber allow for easy wearing all day and feminine touches like bows, lace, and flattering cuts will let a woman feel like her old self. The functionality is much improved with proper pockets for either lace or foam inserts.
Prosthesis bras cannot make everything better in a woman’s life, but this simple garment can do much to improve the mental health as well as the physical appearance of a woman that still wishes to embrace the same femininity that she felt might have been lost forever. These bras are available at medical supply shops and at online retailers and are well worth investigating.
