Following breast surgery you may have sensitive scar tissue, some swelling and feel quite tender, so it’s important for a bra to fit well and not to rub. We've worked with the charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer to create our range of pretty, comfortable and supportive post-surgery bras.
M&S lingerie expert Julia Mercer gives her advice
on choosing the right post-surgery bra.
The weeks and months following surgery are a vulnerable time when you may not feel your usual self. That’s why we’ve worked with Breakthrough Breast Cancer to create a range of beautiful, feminine bras and matching knickers, as modelled by breast cancer survivor Emily Holt.
Internal prosthesis pockets in both
cups, for maximum flexibility
Cups lined with soft cotton so they won’t
rub against sensitive skin
Prothesis pocket openings in optimum
position for comfort and security
Specially designed to hold your prosthesis
securely in position
Cotton fabric helps keep you cool during
any hot flushes caused by medication
Straps, trimmings and finishes made
from the softest microfibre
We all come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so our expert bra advisers are specially trained
to put you at your ease and find styles to suit you. During your free fitting, we’ll ask what type
of surgery you’ve had and what advice you’ve been given by your breast cancer nurse. We’ll
measure you and take into account the size of your prosthesis, then help you choose styles
that are supportive and comfortable. Plus, if you buy a bra from one of the matching sets in
our range, 10 per cent of the selling price will be donated to Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
