5min read

After a lumpectomy or mastectomy many women struggle to decide whether to have breast reconstruction or opt for breast forms. One reason is that many women do not know where to shop for breast forms or a new wardrobe of pocketed bras after their surgery. Below we will discuss where to find the best pocketed bras and breast forms.

Where Can I Find Pocketed Bras?

Pocketed bras can be found on pinkly or other mastectomy or post surgical stores for breast cancer survivors. The major brands producing pocketed bras are Anaono, Amoena, and Everviolet. Each of these brands specialize in post mastectomy recovery bras that provide extra support, softness, and pockets for breast forms. 


These post surgical bras are specially made for women undergoing breast cancer treatment and will frequently feature ultra-soft material for those who are also going through radiation therapy. Each brand has its own style and design some are more functional while others are more sexy. The prices range depending on what you want.


How Much Does A Pocketed Bra Cost?

Most pocketed bras are in the $50-65 range depending on the specialty of the bra. 


Ordering a pocketed bra can be done by visiting your favorite brand’s website or by going to a breast cancer specialty store like pinkly that specializes in providing a variety of brands for post surgical bras and other breast cancer necessities.
