How do I measure my bra size post-mastectomy?

We understand that finding the perfect bra size post-mastectomy can be a daunting task, so we're here to help. Read on for everything you need to know.

We understand that finding the perfect bra post-mastectomy can feel like a daunting task. Your bra size might change and your breasts will probably feel different to the way they did before your surgery. That’s why getting the right bra size and fit is even more important.

At Amoena, we're here to make your post-mastectomy bra journey as smooth as possible for you. In this blog post, we'll break down how to measure your bra size post-mastectomy.

Unlocking bra size secrets

Here’s what you need to know about measuring yourself after surgery:

  1. First, give yourself time to heal after surgery. Your body needs time to recover, heal and adapt. Generally, wait about 6-8 weeks before getting started with measuring, but always speak to a medical professional if there’s anything you’re not sure about or you need help with.
  2. Grab a soft measuring tape and a trusty mirror.
  3. Wrap the tape around your ribcage, just below your breast crease, and take a relaxed measurement.
  4. Measure the fullest part of your remaining breast, taking care to keep the tape snug yet comfortable. This measurement will help you determine your cup size. To find your cup size you can use our helpful online bra size calculator.
