A mastectomy comes with a few challenges in clothing choices. Creating the look of ‘normal’ is often hard to achieve. Wearing a mastectomy bra with a prosthesis is a start. Finding one with a good fit and comfortable around the surgery site and under the arm is imperative. Usually you can find a bra that works for you.
However, what often happens is for those women who like to wear V-neck styles or low necklines, the lack of cleavage is evident. The bras aren’t the solution.
The other issue is scarring on the upper chest from radiation treatment that women want to cover up.
I’ve been asked many times if there was a garment that would add this level of coverage but still be chic, stylish and wearable. Well, I’ve found one. These camisoles worn over a mastectomy bra are lovely and absolutely smashing. The designer obviously knew the issues and came up with something unique and quite frankly are a great wardrobe addition regardless of whether you have had a mastectomy or not.
