FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
After surgery we understand that you may feel tender, sensitive or self-conscious. The right bra, fitted by our trained team, will help you feel like yourself again, restoring your femininity and confidence.
Buying a bra that fits well and makes you feel good is an important part of being a woman. A well fitted bra can make all the difference to your appearance, your posture and your clothes.
This is especially true after breast surgery. A bra that fits close to your chest wall between the cups with enough depth of material between the cups to cover the breast form will allow you the confidence to move as much as you want and dress as you did before. Sounds very technical and it is, but that doesn’t mean it needs to look technical. Post Surgery Bras are an engineering feat but thankfully finished by dress designers.
A Mastectomy Bra has a specially designed pocket in the cup to hold the breast form. We stock a large variety of styles of bras in all shapes and sizes. Our Breast Care Team source our bras from a variety of the best international lingerie specialists to include seam free, front opening, cotton, bamboo, feminine, sexy, comfortable, low line, t-shirt, sports, multi-way, under-wired and non-under-wired that mimic under-wired styles in the shape and support they provide.
For ladies who prefer to use a standard bra, our team at Roches Breast Care are happy to offer a pocketing service.
Medical card holders and private health insurance holders will receive a contribution towards the cost of bras, breast forms and swimwear. Income tax relief is also available through the Med 1 form. Our staff can advise.
