What is the difference between a fashion bra and a mastectomy bra? Can I wear a breast form in my regular bras?

It is recommended that you wear your breast form in a mastectomy pocket bra. Mastectomy pocket bras have been designed to fit with breast forms. They are typically different in three ways. First, they have pockets inside the cups to keep the forms securely in place and comfortable against the skin. Second, mastectomy bra side panels are wider under the arm to offer more support and coverage in an area where tissue is often removed during surgery. Third, the cup is designed to fully cover the entire breast form and more of the remaining natural breast. Some fashion bra cup styles may cut across the breast at too steep an angle and would not completely cover a typical breast form.

Nearly Me Technologies also has specialty bras like the Leisure Bra for after surgery and sleeping, the Lace Cami Bra for feminine coverage in the center of the chest, and the After-Surgery Camisole with pockets for featherweight breast forms and drainage devices.
