Comfortable and Stylish – Mastectomy T’s

When diagnosed with breast cancer, a woman often faces a mastectomy.  This surgery requires some adjustments to daily living in terms of what garments to wear.

Many women consider breast replacement surgery to get back their ‘normal’ look and ease of wearing clothes.  However, for some women, this is not an option they want to entertain, so wearing mastectomy bras is necessary.   Some women have found terrific T-shirts that have a built-in bra with a pocket for the prosthesis.  The one pictured on the right is also reversible so you have a varied neckline –  a stylish basic to add to your new wardrobe.

I know that some small busted women opt for a no-bra look, except for special occasions.  However, if you are larger-breasted, this is not a viable solution.  Not wearing a prosthesis can cause back problems due to the imbalance of weight in the front.  Therefore, finding a mastectomy garment that gives secure comfort (i.e. bra stays in place and doesn’t chafe sensitive skin) is the best choice.
