POST-SURGERY BRA GUIDE

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.

Finding the right post-surgery bra

M&S lingerie expert Julia Mercer shows you
how to get the right fit

Just for you

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.

Ask our in-store experts

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.
