Mastectomy Bras, tops and prostheses for all Breast Surgeries and Reconstruction
Prostheses are breast forms which are breathable and made from antibacterial silicone to protect you from infection. Being non-porous, they do not absorb perspiration, so you stay fresh and odour free all day. However, their main benefit is to restore your shape following breast-surgery, so you are symmetrical. As a result, you will be confident in your clothes and your silhouette, when wearing the right prosthesis and the right mastectomy bra for you.
Long term prosthesis users should know that today’s offerings are 25-40% lighter than before, so are much more comfortable to wear. If you are still wearing a “harness” bra to support a heavy prosthesis, please update your mastectomy wear, for your comfort and your long-term health.
Today’s prostheses fit more snugly and comfortably now due to lighter weight. This means less back strain, less possible back and neck issues in the future, as well as less drag and pull away from your chest well, causing gaping. Consequently mastectomy bras are more feminine, with finer fabric and thinner straps, as they do not have to support such weight.
Roches Top Tips for Choosing Best Fit Prostheses:
- In the past when someone hugged you, the prosthesis did not feel like a breast, and sometimes left a dent, that took longer than it should to go back to shape. All our prostheses pass the hug test, feeling like breasts, without leaving indentations
- You pass the tight top test if your prosthesis is undetectable under a tight top
Browse nipples or cover a protruding nipple for symmetry.
