Life after Mastectomy

Owner Tracey Grills

The breast cancer journey is incredibly challenging, but one sacrifice a person doesn’t have to make is how they look in their own clothes after recovery according to the staff at Tracey G Maroochydore and East Brisbane.

They said some ladies choose the reconstruction path after mastectomy, but for those who don’t there’s no reason why they couldn’t look beautiful in their own clothes again.

Gone are the days where a lady has to settle for second best in terms of look and fit. No being uncomfortable all day in a poorly fitted bra and definitely no more “frumpy” lingerie.

According to the staff, the first step in regaining their silhouette are breast forms. There are dozens of shapes, weights and sizes to choose from which’ll match the remaining breast perfectly. If the customer has had a bilateral mastectomy, the size they become is now up to them!

“There are also breast forms that can be used whilst swimming or exercising, so your lifestyle doesn’t have to change,” the staff explained.

“Post mastectomy wear such as lingerie swimwear sportswear and casual wear have also gone ahead in leaps and bounds in terms of support, style and comfort.

“The other great news is that the federal government will cover the cost of your breast prosthesis up to $400, per breast every two years for the rest of your life. Many private health funds cover the cost of post mastectomy garments.

“The key to enjoying your fitting, and looking beautiful in your own clothes, is to have a professional fitting by a trained lingerie and prosthesis fitter.”

At Tracey G Maroochydore and East Brisbane the team are Amoena trained and certified fitters and won’t be satisfied with your new look unless you are.

Some additional services they offer at Tracey G include a comprehensive range of post surgical garments, full figure and maternity lingerie.

Tracey G Prosthetics and Lingerie are located in East Brisbane at 976 Stanley Street East and 1/6 Norval Court Maroochydore. Contact them on 0466 828143 or go to traceyg.com.
