Leading suppliers of post-surgery lingerie and swimwear have revealed their best-selling products of the season.
As part of a wider debate on industry trends, which will be published at Lingerieinsight.com later this month, brands from Amoena to Royce shared the most popular post-surgery styles among UK consumers.
Learn about these collections in the descriptions and galleries below.
Isadora Support Bra
This bra features three-part cups for support and coverage and wide, padded straps, ideal for women suffering from lymphoedema, who need to reduce pressure on their shoulders. With its embroidered mesh fabric on the upper cup, Isadora offers a lighter look than many full-cup bras.
Lara T-shirt bra
The Lara T-shirt bra is perennial favourite with Amoena customers, which is why the brand keeps evolving the style year after year, with new colours and fabrics. Its moulded and lightly-padded cups are designed to create a smooth outline under any outfit.
From Amonea’s Parisian-inspired Seduction range, Aurelie is hugely popular with customers who like to indulge in luxurious lingerie. The off-white set, with its delicate lace and embroidery, was designed specifically with brides in mind.
This wire-free mastectomy bra features wide, padded comfort straps and breast from pockets made of cotton. The upper cup is crafted with transparent voile embroidery.
Tony is a T-shirt bra developed with a snug-fitting foam cup for coverage and support. Featuring breast form pockets on both sides, the bra is made of light, fine tulle. The slim straps are padded with fibrefill for comfort.
Moulded Mastectomy Bra
Although Naturana doesn’t specialise entirely in post-surgery lingerie, its moulded mastectomy bra options has proved popular with consumers this season. The bra, available in white and royal blue, features breast form pockets on both sides and is crafted using 80% cotton.
Primrose Cotton Bra
Made from 90% cotton, this pocketed bra is designed to keep the wearer cool and comfortable all day-long. This style is designed with a vintage ivory base, floral rose print and eyelash lace detailing across the cup edge.
Sumatra High Neck Swimsuit
The best-selling post-surgery swimwear piece from Nicola Jane’s 2017 range is its signature bias-cut swimsuit. The one-piece is designed with a classic black base combined with an emerald green wave print. Cut on the bias and featuring tummy control lining, the swimwear style is designed to flatter all figures.
The Maisie T-shirt bra and matching briefs is available in three colours – blush, navy and mulberry. The style has proven to be a best-seller among consumers due to its soft modal fabric and smooth outline underclothing. As well as having optional pockets for prostheses after a mastectomy, it is also an ideal option for women who have had a lumpectomy, as the foam is designed to hide any irregularities.
Silver post-surgery bra
The Silver post-surgery bra is worn by consumers immediately after surgery, to get them through the first part of their journey and aid recovery. The bra is virtually seam-free and contains X-Static silver, which is anti-bacterial, anti-odour and thermo-regulating. The style features Velcro straps, which can be adjusted when required, and is front-fastening, essential when arm movement is restricted.
Jasmine is an all-time top-seller from Royce when it comes to post-surgery lingerie. Available in white, black and nude, the bra features a lace top-cup and bow in the centre front.
