Janeen Laimbeer from Orthotic House is here to help guide you through the choice of breast prosthesis and bras available for you post breast surgery.

If you have undergone a full or partial mastectomy, you may decide to wear a breast prosthesis to make your breasts look more natural and balanced.

A breast prosthesis is a breast form that fits into a special prosthesis bra, which has an inbuilt pocket, these include standard breast forms, swim forms, foam fillers, or shell prostheses. Janeen’s many years of experience means you are in good hands, rest assured, you will be correctly measured and fitted with the best option most suited to your needs.

If you have experienced breast surgery your bra needs can be radically different than before the surgery and although buying a post-surgery bra may seem like a daunting prospect, it is still possible to look beautiful and feel comfortable in your bras. More importantly, by wearing correctly fitted garments you can help relieve the side effects of surgery such as lymphedema.

View our extensive range which includes the very feminine ‘Anita’ ‘Trulife’, ‘Amoena’ and ‘Silima ’ranges. You can be confident we will find you an effective, comfortable, well fitted and beautiful bra.
