What is it? A special bra with pockets to hold the prosthesis.
Who needs it? Anyone who has had breast surgery.
Why buy it? "Bras for people who have had mastectomies have come a long way, which means people can get bras that combine comfort and style post-surgery. But because people get different procedures, they will need a bra that works for them and said procedure.
"Some people will get a reconstruction straightaway, and will need to be fitted to find the bra shape that is most comfortable. But I would advise them to avoid wired bras, at least for the first 12 months post-surgery.
"Those who don't get a reconstruction will get a breast prosthesis (artificial silicon breast). These sit in the pocket of specially made bras, which you can get in most good bra shops. Or they can be worn with a normal wired bra without a pocket." KD
