Find out more about our bra fitting services below.
Understanding the Importance of a Compression Bra
A compression bra is more than just a garment; it’s a key element in promoting wound healing after breast surgery, reducing the risk of breast cancer related lymphoedema (BCRL). Specifically designed to shape the tissue correctly and symmetrically, these bras exert gentle pressure to support the affected tissue during the healing process. The length of time for wearing a compression bra is individually determined by your attending physician.
Forgoing a compression bra in favour of alternatives like sports bras, or wearing an ill-fitting compression bra, poses risks such as compromised wound healing, increased chance of lymphoedema, and the potential for asymmetry or deformities. A properly fitted compression bra provides the necessary support to facilitate a smooth recovery.
Why Professional Bra Fitting Matters
Our professional fitting service caters to the unique needs of individuals who have undergone lymph node removal or face lymphatic issues. Professionally fitted bras play a crucial role in managing breast oedema symptoms and reducing the risk of lymphoedema. They are designed to promote lymphatic drainage, shape the breast area, and provide essential support.
