The Importance of Proper Fitting

The proper fitting of post-mastectomy bras and prosthetics is not merely a matter of comfort; it can have a profound impact on a patient’s physical health and overall well-being. Without the right fit, patients can experience various issues, including:

  • Spinal Curvature: An ill-fitted bra or prosthetic can lead to spinal curvature over time, causing discomfort and pain.
  • Shoulder Drop: Uneven weight distribution can result in shoulder drop, leading to muscle strain and discomfort.
  • Muscle Contracture and Stretching: Poorly fitted prosthetics can lead to muscle contracture and stretching, causing pain and limited mobility.
  • Chest Compression: An improperly fitted garment may compress the chest, affecting lung function and exerting pressure on the heart.
  • Balance Problems: Uneven weight distribution can affect a patient’s balance, leading to potential falls and injuries.
  • Poorly Fitting Clothes: Ill-fitting bras and prosthetics can make it challenging to find clothing that fits well and feels comfortable.
