Fit is the #1 key to choosing the proper mastectomy bra
To determine the right fit consider your figure type. Your figure type specifically refers to your breast matter.
There are three figure types: (see bra by fit)
The support of a bra comes from the side panel and the width of the back of the bra not from the shoulder straps. Most women adjust the shoulder strap for additional support however this brings the back of the bra higher than the front and does not give proper support to the chest wall and breast. The side panels of a bra should not buckle when worn. Bras that have an inner lining will shape the breast and offer more support. The inner lining of a bra acts in the same way that an underwire use to. Following breast surgery, it is of even greater importance to find intimate apparel that fits securely.
