Every day, you rely on a few critical items to carry you through – things you might say you can’t live without. For instance, most of us don’t leave the house without our mobile phones -- or if we do, we feel completely untethered! We thrive on having that perfect handbag, the one that goes with any outfit. And we definitely depend on our tried and true, everyday bras – without their support, who knows how we’d end up!
Amoena is proud to have been creating reliable bras for women since 1992. That’s when we introduced our line of pocketed lingerie for women, to support our innovations in silicone breast forms. Today, we’re still fashioning high-quality, well-made pocketed bras… we’re just doing it with more, well, fashion in mind!
Stepping out in style
Our Everyday bra collection includes a whole lot of styles. One of our most beloved styles across the globe, the Lara non-wired bra works in basic nude, white and black, and in seasonal collections, a variety of colors and different fabrics. Crafted with every detail in mind down to the stitching, Lara is always comfortable, always supportive.
A little lace
The Karla collection, available in an underwired bra as well as non-wired bra, is another Everyday style with “special day” written all over it. The matching panty is lacy but fits comfortably enough to wear during your normal, busy days.
For something soft
Our seasonal collection typically includes a soft camisole if you prefer a little coverage all the way to your waist; maybe you’re wearing a wooly sweater or just want to keep warm with an extra layer. The camisole top is fully supportive with an inside, pocketed bra top construction – hooks in the back, and all. You might not wear a cami every day now, but you might want to after trying ours!
Build your weekday wardrobe
You’re going to want a lacy bra: Try Rebecca in underwired or non-wired. Its cup is modestly cut but still fits beautifully, and the adjustable straps offer padding at the shoulder for excellent support and comfort.
Your flawless fit
One thing is certain: It’s all about the fit that’s right for you. There are a lot of “bra-fitting” news articles and blog posts online. Luckily, Amoena has known the secret all along: Have a professional bra fitting. Make notes about which styles and features work best for you.
And then, wear your confidence wherever the Everyday takes you.
Deciding what to wear after a mastectomy can seem daunting, but there’s no need to sacrifice your own sense of style or comfort.
Start with the basics
Overcoming something as emotionally and physically challenging as a mastectomy creates huge changes in a woman’s life. We emerge stronger and more resilient, with a new awareness of our bodies. Inevitably, there’s also a new set of considerations when choosing an outfit.
Once you’re comfortable with the basics, however, there’s no reason why your surgery should limit the range of your wardrobe, or hamper your own sense of style.
While being temporarily limited in the area of décolletage might seem to reduce your choices, remember the changes in your body are usually far less visible to others than they appear to you.
Natural SymmetryLoose-fitting tops with modest necklines are an easy starting point. With the right breast form and bra combination, you can achieve a look of natural symmetry without showing cleavage.
Create a Focus PointPerfect for casual or smart dressing, tops with gathers, knots, drapes and ruffles can give your outfit texture and create a focus point.
Improvise on the GoWear the clothes you love. Don’t rule out a dress or top with a revealing neckline until you try it on with a cami. Alternatively, a scarf could provide the coverage you need.
Find the Perfect FitWhen shopping for tailored dresses, take note of where the dart sits. This will give you an idea on how a dress or shirt will fit around the breast area before you have even tried it on.
Essential Mastectomy Bras
Bra support and comfort is a must. Ensure you have one of these three essentials on hand for any occasion.
Non-wired Soft BraIf you’re feeling tender, this is a softer alternative to an underwire bra. Look for a bra with slight padding for extra comfort.
T-shirt BraThis should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Comfortable and slightly padded with moulded cups, T-shirt bras are smooth under your clothes without showing any visible lines.
Front-Closure Bra. An essential after a mastectomy, a front-closure bra is easy to fasten and is more convenient to use in case range of motion in the arms is a challenge.
More than ever, it’s vital to choose clothing made from fabrics that offer all-day comfort, breathe well and don’t chafe.
Modal offers superb flexibility, is soft to touch, and drapes beautifully to flatter your figure, with a texture similar to cotton.
2. JerseyLight and flexible yet insulating, Jersey is a soft and stretchy knit fabric used to make fantastic leggings and classic comfort T's.
3. CottonDurable, absorbent and still considered the best natural fabric for its remarkable breathability, cotton is a firm favourite for sensitive skin.
Down toward legs and shoes
Belts:Instead of wearing in the loops of your trousers, cinch at your waist over dresses, coats and oversized shirts, creating a shapely silhouette and drawing attention to the centre of your body.
Shorts and patterned skirts: Attract attention to the lower half of your body with textures and patterns that are bold, pretty or simply interesting to look at.
Statement Shoes: A killer pair of shoes will draw attention immediately. If you don’t have an eye-catching pair it’s time for some shoe shopping.
Upwards to the neck and face with colours and accessoriesEarrings:
Now’s your chance to wear a bold and flashy set of earrings. There’s never been a better excuse to accessorise your ears.
Necklaces: Wear a short necklace or choker to attract attention upwards. Avoid a necklace that dangles over the bust line as it will draw attention to the area.
Scarves: A quick way to visually transform an outfit, wearing pretty scarves and shawls is also a subtle way to cover scars or drains.
Wear the Right Breast Form
Whether you prefer a traditional prosthesis or an attachable prosthesis is often simply a matter of personal choice, but new technology has blurred the line between the two, with massive advancements in the comfort and appearance of both.
Traditional Breast FormSupported by your pocketed bra and perfect for times when you’re wearing loose fitting or thicker fabrics. They are popular because they are easy to get used to.
Adhesive breast form - Amoena Contact Amoena Contact attaches directly to your chest and is the ideal option to relieve pressure from your bra straps or when getting a little more daring with your neckline.
Comfort is key - It’s never worth wearing uncomfortable breast forms. Aside from the discomfort, you risk irritating your sensitive skin and creating posture problems down the road.
Start with these basic tips and you’ll find that you have a great range of clothing choices and shopping opportunities!
By simply using colour, texture and accessories, you can create a fresh new look that’s comfortable and an expression of your own beauty.
Keep in mind, too, that your body may change over time as a result of diet, fitness and time itself! What fits you this year might not feel as good next year, so it’s important to visit your fitter once a year.
