Your Guide to Post-Surgical Camisoles & Bras
Your medical provider will likely share specific instructions. This guide is intended to supplement that, and it’s important to point you that you should always prioritize the instructions of your medical provider because there could be circumstances unique to your diagnosis and surgery.
We are always happy to share our experience in advance and help you talk through questions and concerns. And we have several breast cancer survivors on-staff who may be a valuable resource to you.
This guide has been developed in partnership with Wear Ease, our post-surgical garment partner.
You and your doctor will want to prepare for your surgery and recovery. Your recovery will commonly be easier if you have a special post-surgical camisole or bra in advance. Such a garment can help alleviate both your physical and emotional discomfort.
By scheduling a private fitting with one of our Certified Mastectomy Fitters in advance of your surgery, you can discuss expectations and be fitted for the right camisole based on your surgeon’s preference, the surgery you have scheduled, and your size and body type. You can request an appointment here by email or just call (615) 777-7465 to schedule. This can be done at any of our four Nashville-area locations.
The post-surgical camisole is almost always billable to your insurance provider. We will coordinate with your surgeon’s office for a prescription and process the necessary claim paperwork on your behalf.
It is common to have at least one or more drains for at least a week or more after surgery. While drains are in place, it can be challenging to find workable clothing solutions. You may feel well enough to leave the house and resume aspects of your normal life. Having a camisole that can secure your drains will make it easier to move around. We will outfit you with drain pouches and share tips and tricks we’ve learned over the years to make this a lot easier.
We encourage you to call us at (615) 777-7465 or email your fitter or [email protected] if you have any questions immediately after surgery. We are here to help make you as comfortable as possible, and we’ve helping thousands of women through this process.

Post-Surgical Camisoles & Bras
A post-surgical garment provides support and comfort for you immediately after surgery and throughout your recovery.
We offer a number of post-surgical camisole and bra styles. Camisoles and bras by Wear Ease are uniquely designed with an inner shelf bra to support the breast(s).
All Wear Ease post-surgical styles include removable drain tube pouches and adjustable fiberfill breast forms (puffs). The puff(s) fit securely into built-in pockets and provide breast shape without discomfort.
One of our Certified Mastectomy Fitters can review all the styles with you and, with input from your surgeon, select what’s best for your unique situation.
