Mastectomy bra

Hello Everyone,


As part of a business venture, I am designing a prosthetic bra for women who have undergone through mastectomy, lumpectomy or have gone through breast re-construction. My mother has undergone a mastectomy and has expressed her difficulty finding nice, desirable bras. I know firsthand how difficult it can be to continue normal life after undergoing a major surgery. For this reason, I want to help all women find their comfort after surgery. I would love to hear your experience with prosthetic bras and the problems you face.


Would providing a service where your existing bras are altered with bra pockets for a breast form be beneficial? Or, is buying a new bra with the alterations more preferable?


Hope to hear from you soon.
