One of the most common problems that some women face post-mastectomy is having a hollow at the cleavage area.

The concern is that when bending down or wearing something low, it's possible to see down the front of the bra making the loss of the breast more noticeable.

Wearing the right size of bra is of course the most obvious advice, especially the right cup size.

Some bras make this worse and the main problem seems to occur when the bra straps are to the outside area of the bra cup, rather than closer to the centre.  The straps being further apart give little support at the cleavage area and allows the bra to gape when...

Finding and choosing the best breast form for you is sometimes difficult due to the vast choice that is now available. Since most breast forms look similar, it can take a while reading through each one to note the differences. On the plus side, having this wider range of choice now does make it easier than ever before to achieve a really good and comfortable fit. Let's look at the best breast forms and what would make you want to choose them.

Choosing a Lightweight Breast Form

Many patients are keen to opt for a lightweight prosthesis as there are advantages in doing so. The bra doesn’t pull away when you bend down and there...

Although there is a huge selection of mastectomy bras now available, there are a few that we find are the most suitable for patients as a first bra after surgery. These bras are so comfortable that many patients continue to wear them longer term. The bras we would recommend for your first post-mastectomy bra are:

The Diana Bra

Wide comfortable straps, high cotton content and has a good uplift for a soft bra. The Diana bra is a bra that some ladies like to keep returning to years after surgery.

Price: £22

Anita Allie Bra

The Anita Allie bra is very similar to the Diana bra but with narrower straps and also...

Last week, we were delighted to be approached by the Huffington Post who were writing the article "Mastectomy Bras UK: These brands will change your perception of mastectomy lingerie."

Style writer Rosy Cherrington had some questions about what we offer and our approach to mastectomy lingerie. You can read the full Huffington Post article and we've included some of the questions & answers from our chat below.

Rosy: What made you first decide to start Something Pretty?

Diana: We provide a service to Mastectomy patients in Scotland, and many would request information about lingerie, so we decided to provide an online...

It occurred to me recently, after fitting patients with very varied body shapes and lifestyles, that the range of breast prostheses we have at our disposal now is very wide, both in shape and in weight. This is so important because every patient is different and having such a wide choice of breast forms available for fitting makes it much easier to try to get a “perfect fit”.

The lighter weight prostheses are now much softer and more pliable than before giving a very natural look and the range of different shapes that all the manufacturers have developed is much wider than ever before. For patients that have only lost part of...

We are delighted to say that the Royce Maisie Bra is available in a new colour Blush.

Maisie is such a soft comfortable bra being made in a soft cotton jersey and is such a good fit. Everyone who tries it on comments on how comfortable it is.

This Royce bra is a beautiful, comfortable and stylish bra which has very pretty satin cuff detailing.

Masie's smooth cups and subtle shades make it perfect to wear under any clothing.

Also includes a cotton lining in the cups for extra comfort. Maisie is available from Something Pretty in Mulberry, Navy and now Blush
