LET’S TALK lin­gerie…

YOURS (UK) - - Feel Good -

Find­ing a com­fort­able bra that looks nice and fits well can be chal­lenge after breast cancer surgery. You’re likely to be feel­ing un­com­fort­able, sore and may have some swelling, so need a com­fort­able bra with cov­er­age and sup­port. Post-surgery lin­gerie is much-im­proved and as well as post-surgery spe­cial­ists, there’s lots of choice on the high street. Melissa Reeve says, “Post-surgery lin­gerie will help you build the right foun­da­tion for any out­fit, whether you’ve had a sin­gle or dou­ble mas­tec­tomy or a re­con­struc­tion. If you have high scar­ring or a slightly hol­low chest, a style with a higher cen­tre front will dis­creetly pro­vide you with ad­di­tional cov­er­age where you need it most. Larger cup sizes may need a firmer style with thicker straps to pro­vide the nec­es­sary sup­port for a larger and heav­ier pros­the­sis. After a dou­ble mas­tec­tomy, your fo­cus may be recre­at­ing a nat­u­ral and even shape with moulded padded foam cups. Or, if you pre­fer, try an elas­ti­cated cup edge, which will help to keep your pros­the­ses se­curely in place.”
