Frequently Asked Questions

Q - What is the Recovery Brobe?

A - The Recovery Brobe is the FIRST bra + robe combination designed for post-operative breast surgery. The unique design includes pockets inside the robe to hold post-op drains, 2 pockets on each side. It also comes with a detachable, wire free, front closure bra that has pockets inside the bra to hold ice packs and/or a prosthetic breasts. The Recovery Brobe can be worn with, or without the bra - it's detachable!

 

Q - What is the Shower Belt?

A - The Shower Belt is designed to hold post-op drains while in the shower or it can be worn under clothes. The belt has an adjustable, elastic band with two drain pockets. The pockets are made of a light, wicking fabric that allows water to run freely while in the shower but dries quickly to wear under clothes. A simple, yet very effective and useful accessory.
