The seamless Carefix post surgical bras provide support and compression to reduce post surgical swelling and minimize the accumulation of blood and fluid. It promotes the healing process and balances the surgical result with comfort for the users. To retrieve the full benefit of the bra, it is important that the right size and model are selected.
The 4-way stretch material of the Carefix bras will ensure optimum support, comfort and fit throughout the entire post op recovery. The 4-way stretch material provides superior expansion and contraction ability, enabling the bra to fit multiple sizes. This is not the case with bras made of a more numb (non-expansive) material. If the surgical site is swollen the bra will expand accordingly, and when the swelling subsides, the material will contract and the bra will once again fit the size of the breast optimally. This leaves the compression level intact and ensures high support and comfort for the patient.
Always measure yourself to find the right size of Carefix bra. For optimal fit, we recommend to measure after surgery.
If measurement is done pre-surgery
You might need the bra 1-2 sizes larger than indicated by the Carefix size chart, due to post-surgical swelling.
If you have a Carefix bra with cup division (e.g. one bra covers cup A-C and one D-F), you might need a larger cup size compared to the size indicated in the Carefix size chart pre-surgery. Seek advice from your surgeon, nurse or dealer for correct size identification.
For more compression go down one size and for less compression go up one size.
