Just wondering....I had a lumpectomy on my right breast and three weeks later to remove more tissue. Now my breast is about two sizes smaller than the other and my bra cups tend to wrinkle on that side. Is there special bras made for this.?

    Hi Kaye, You can be fitted for a bra that has pockets for pads but I found Water wear pads at Target, JC Penny, Dillards and Amazon.com that are really comfortable and can be slipped into a regular bra. They can fill Under the breast like mine or on the side. Many girls wear these for the push up look but they are great and inexpensive for our needs. You can also order the comfy cup that can be worn inside a regular bra. Just be comfortable. I have two sizes depending on the type of bra I'm wearing. I don't know what part of our great land you live in but department stores that have a nice ladies department usually carry these. Be sure to look at Amazon to get a good idea of what you're needs are.I shied away from the silicone and went for the soft cotton filled with water. It looked cooler. Let me know how you come out with your new shaplier self. :-D Jo

    Check also with your insurance plan as my breast form and new bras were covered and paid for

    My husband lost his job three weeks after I was dx so I am on Medicaid until he gets a job and insurance. I don't know if Medicaid will pay for the bras

    I got my breast proths from TLC Direct. They are made of very small beads and form into, around, etc my indentations from double mast.they have some for lumpectomys also. I just love these forms. They are light, look n feel real, water friendly for swimming and easy to take care of. I put them in my bra that have pockets. Good luck.
