Re: Has anyone found any pretty mastectomy bras and can I wear a wired bra?

Just taken delivery today of a new Bra for me from Asda.  It's pretty, it's lacy, has a little bow and diamanté in the middle, it's a lovely darker pink colour and what's more it's has lovely matching panties. Wow a lingerie SET at last.  It has cotton liner and pockets for those who need them. It has WOW four hook spacing on the back for those days when things go up and down so whoever designed this knew all about it. The best part about this as well it is from their Tickled Pink range so they donate to Breast cancer now. The bra was £8 and the panties £3 so definitely a decent price. As you are all online have a look it is in the post surgery bras and they go up to a decent size. Only online I believe. I also ordered another one, very lacy and skin tone it too is perfect. No matching panties though, shame.

I really hope that Marks and other stockists of mast bra's are watching Corrie with the story line they are running. One of the factory girls is talking to ladies to see what they want in a bra! I found although Marks were pretty and lacy, they did nothing for the boob left behind. Having small boobs I always brought bras with a bit of padding, but the mast bras I found were very flimsy with no padding. They could make one with with a set of pads to use on whichever side needs the oomph.This is hard even to deal with without having the effort of trying to find a decent bra. Xx

I've bought several really lovely ones at the Nicola Jane shop - I'm a size E and found lots there.

None are underwired, but the support is very good.

Have you tried marks and Spencer,  I have a lovely one. Although I had a WLE I got it as it was so comfy and soft irz black lace

Has anyone found any pretty mastectomy bras and can I wear a wired bra?

I've looked everywhere and all the mastectomy bras seem to be really old fashioned and ugly.  

 

I had a left sided mastectomy without recon last April and everything has healed really well but my remaining breast is large (GG) and I just can't find any nice underwear.   

 

I want a pretty bra, and think I deserve one after everything I've put my body through.  

 

Does anyone know if wired bras are okay?  I've been thinking about maybe buying a normal wired bra and then sewing a pocket into the left side to hold my fake boob but I wear a silicone boob and I'm worried the wires might damage it.  Anyone tried this?
