I woke up in this pretty pink bra, the Elizabeth Pink Surgical Bra from my exchange surgery. Oh how I wish I had known about it during my Mastectomy. It would have been fantastic to hold the drains, which were such a pain. Anyone going through this journey, rather the Mastectomy or the exchange, I recommend this bra. It is so comfortable! The other compression bras I was given cut into my underarms and actually hurt. Thank you for your awesome invention!
My hospital gave 2 to me. It was what I was wearing when I came out of surgery. Very helpful and user friendly”
I am still wearing mine. Had mastectomy and cut the loops off after the drains came out. I am 2 weeks post exchange surgery and still wear this quite a bit. Especially at night. They are the softest bras out there and have been a great purchase.
I received this bra from my hospital. I LOVED it. It was so comfortable. The material is very soft and feels nice on your skin. I loved that it had drain holders and I never had to worry about what I was going to do with them. I was in this bra for about 8 weeks total 24 hours a day. I would recommend this bra to anyone that is going to have breast surgery. Thanks!
My surgeon put it on me in the hospital and then I begged her for another to take home. When I realized I could order it online, I bought another. Even after my drains came out, I used this MAGIC bra. I cut off the rings and it’s been on me ever since. I rotate the 3 bras through the week and my surgeon said I have recovered faster than any patient she’s seen. Just wanted you all to know how much I appreciate your Pink bra.
The pillows and care bags I purchased have been a life saver through my three surgeries. It was awesome to know I had my hospital bag ready and medical supplies on hand to care for my drains and incisions after I got home from my mastectomy. Thank you for what you and your company provide. I’m forever indebted to you all.
A great bag full of fun and helpful items. Going through breast cancer is tough – this colorful bag and its contents still make me smile.
I had breast cancer and mastectomy 16 years ago and I wish that this bag was available then. It’s such a comfort to have all that you need when you go into the hospital. I gave this bag to my friend, Anne. When I visited her after her surgery, she had the pillow under her arm and she loved the Burts Bees lip balm. She even sent me a thank you note on a beautiful note card from the bag.
My wife recently underwent a double mastectomy and received this bag from a friend of hers who had also undergone this procedure. It was the perfect gift. The contents are well put together and beautifully presented. My wife was very moved by the thoughtfulness of the gift.
I ordered your pink surgical bra. It is amazing. The surgical bra from the hospital was poking me all over and when I moved the Velcro seemed to lift. Next morning changed to your surgical bra. Wow! It is comfortable and soft. I have not wanted to wear another style bra. I am back to my surgeon on Friday and will show him this product! I will be attending a wedding this weekend and know that this bra will get me through the event in my black dress. Thank you for making a quality product.
Perfectly practical, thoughtful gift for anyone undergoing this type of procedure! My friend underwent this surgery and thanked me several times over for its contents. They thought of everything!
I purchased this product as a gift and it arrived right on time the recipient LOVED it. She especially found the underarm pillow and drain supplies helpful. She had read about what things to buy and thought she wouldn’t really need some things but this package was extremely useful and she loved it. Thank you for making products like this, for friends/family that want to do SOMETHING for a loved one going through a double mastectomy and aren’t sure what to get!
To my great surprise, the duffel bag is good quality as are the separate zippered pouches, thoughtfully filled with quality and helpful items. As my friend described it: “It had so many things we needed and even more that we did not know we would need.” Even the nurses in the breast cancer center were impressed with its contents. From the two special support pillows (patients rave about them) to collapsible water bottle to sleep socks to post-surgical drain care materials to skincare products to toiletries to “amusements” to ear plugs and more. The creator of the bag truly thought of everything to make the patient experience better.
My sister-in-law just found out she must have a double mastectomy next month so I sent this gift. When it arrived, it was so well put together with so many useful and appreciated items. Carefully picked and packed with so much thoughtfulness of a woman’s needs after this type of surgery. My brother and sister-in-law were so very thankful for this gift they couldn’t say enough. Thank you for this amazing package.
I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation to you during this difficult time. I had a chance to look through the bag before I went into the hospital for surgery, and I was amazed at everything in it. I cannot express enough how appreciate I am for this very thoughtful and useful gift. You are wonderful and I thank you for everything.
I do not know where to start to thank you so much for the bag. I could not believe all of the items that were in there. I have to start with how much I love the pillow. It is like having a stuffed animal again. I sleep with it every night since my surgery. You thought of everything from the bandages, notepad, and notecards, playing cards and toothbrush, even a KIND protein bar. Again, many thanks for a wonderful product!
I receive my bag as a gift from the hospital, 2 years ago. I loved that red pillow so much, I bought 2 more, 1 for each of my sisters. We are all still using them, I sleep with mine every night. I have recommended it to everyone I know. Thank you for making such a great, supportive product. everyone should have one.
I woke up after my prophylactic bilateral mastectomy wearing one of your pretty pink bras! I loved it so much that I ordered another from your site so while one was washing I wouldn’t go without wearing one. It was perfect support for my drain tubes and I loved the velcro on the straps which made putting on and off the bra very easy! I guess I was one of the lucky patients because my doctor said they were samples given to the hospital at that time. I have 2 more family members going in soon for prophylactic mastectomies and I’ve recommended them to purchase this bra! Thank you for making my recovery much easier!!
I ordered one of your bags for my friends struggling with cancer and she thought it was “brilliant”, which is a big deal since she is a senior brand designer and is all about the look/design.
The immediate response from the wonderful Ladies at [Masthead] to my questions are PRICELESS and makes me feel so special! I am scheduled for my prophylactic bilateral mastectomy in April and already have the wonderful, bright, cheerful mastectomy bag. My doctor said I could get the Elizabeth surgical bra immediately after surgery instead of the velcro lined ones they provide! I am so grateful for this Company and tell everyone I meet about how wonderful they are. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!
I found [Masthead] through the FORCE (Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered) website and several other blogs relating to “Previvor” options and experiences due to BRCA mutations. These are awesome gift bags so I don’t have to travel all over town gathering these items.
What a wonder bag of gifts – I can’t think of a thing that was missed. Record keeping page, Axillapilla, All kinds of necessary information, Three cosmetic type bags filled with things for all types of personal needs, lotions, creams, notes, slipper socks – very soft, bandages, even candy (a nut bar). There is so much stuff in this one bag, I will find something new every day. They didn’t miss a thing. This is the absolutely the best gift I have ever seen for an operation! Thank you so much!
I sent your double mastectomy gift to my sister-in-law. She received it yesterday and told me she was crying all night (“in a good way”) because a friend of hers had given her a list of things she would need for her surgery, and practically every single item on the list was in the bag. She said she felt relieved that everything was in one place. No one wants to go through this and we are praying that this will be as quick and painless as possible as she is only 40 years old. One feels so helpless and your company provided comfort and necessity in time of uncertainty. THANK YOU!
Yesterday I interviewed a 55 year old breast cancer survivor. She was a patient of Dr. Ashikari (Dobbs Ferry Hospital). She told us about her experience from beginning to end and it was absolutely incredible seeing her strength. We asked her what had helped her most along her journey and she spoke of the nurses, support from her family and community and then she said ‘and the [Masthead] Bag I got as I was leaving the hospital. It was the most beautiful duffel bag with so many things that helped me at home after my surgeries. Was just such a nice way for me to have a bit of help once the nurses were no longer with me.’
I wear my bra even though I finished radiation months ago. I love it.
