Bra measurement


Re: Bra measurement

Hi Teachen

Thanks for posting.

Finding the right bra that fits comfortably makes such a difference following surgery such as a mastectomy.

Here is some information about bras after breast surgery that may be helpful.  It includes information about correct bra sizes and how to get help with arranging a fitting. 

Our more general guide to a well-fitting bra may also be of interest.

We also offer a range of free supportive services that you might be interested in

If you would like a nurse to call you do complete this form. Ticking the box agreeing to a call back.

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.

Could anyone help me please, how do you measure for a new bra after having a mastectomy? I’ve only got the one bra that fits, it’s mainly the cup size I’d like advice on please. Thank you xx
