The wonderful nurse at the hospital suggested I try a Masthead bra after my radiation session today and I am so happy to say this is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. It is so soft, made of the finest material and am sure that it will wash well as well. It is such a comfort to be able to wear well-fitting and comfortable clothing during the treatment for breast cancer – it makes a wonderful difference in knowing that I am treating my body better than ever in going through the treatments and clothing such as this bra makes it easier to do. The bra is very well constructed, doesn’t have any annoying seams that cut into me, and is extremely soft. I really appreciate the work and design that went into this.
Hi there — I am sitting here recovering from my double mastectomy and am IN LOVE with the cushie pillow — feels like heaven under my arm. I received a care package from the hospital and it has made such a difference in my recovery!
I want to thank you for creating your surgical bra. I was searching for a bra and could not find one. While going through radiation, the sports bra was becoming uncomfortable. Then I remembered reading about your bras. I placed an order and it came the next day! As soon as I put it on, I immediately felt better. I wish I had placed an order when I began my treatment. The bra is made of a soft material, has cushions on the shoulders and is very comfortable. I was happy to put away the sports bras. I will be completing my radiation treatment in the coming week and wanted to send this note to you in case anyone is thinking about purchasing your bras. I hope they order them – they will be happy they did!
The narrow band is so comfortable for the patient. The plastic surgeon was thrilled to see it on his patient with expander reconstruction. The expanders were sitting so high, the [implant stabilizer] strap brought them right down.
My friend continued to use the pillow through all her further surgeries. She is currently cancer free and feeling really good. I am delighted that I was able to show my support by giving her the gift of comfort via the pillow.
The drain care instructions and the organizer saved my mother. When she was in the hospital, the discharge nurses gave us instructions, but my mother was still under the influence of pain meds and did not register everything that they threw at her. I used the pad to write down some notes and then we went to your website. What a lifesaver.
I recently had a double mastectomy in NYC and my plastic surgeon Dr. Chen put me in the Elizabeth pink surgical bra. I am very fortunate that she chose this bra for me….It is very comfortable for every day use and especially to sleep in.
The bras are so soft with easy-to-button hooks, I love their fit and feel and they finally solved my post breast cancer pain and discomfort problems. I was depressed and my nails were broken and I was bald. My morale had hit zero when Masthead came to the rescue. I had given up wearing bras and was wearing old worn out cotton Ts to bed and outside. I was sad and felt less feminine than any time in my life. Masthead bras let me know somebody loving understood me and wanted to help and even had traveled through that wasteland before me and made it!!! If I were a billionaire I would donate every penny my family did not need to survive to helping further products like these amazing cancer recovery bras from this amazing company.
Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful heart pillow. I tucked it under my arm immediately and it felt so good!! Before its arrival, I kept saying I felt as if someone had kicked me in the armpit… probably from all the probing to get those sentinel nodes out. It is also a great prop for keeping my arm at a good height when sitting. Can you explain why they feel so good? Is it because the pilla allows the lymph nodes more space to function? Or perhaps, it is taking the pressure of the arm off the incision site?
The pillow was the perfect gift for me after my mastectomy. It feels great and takes the pressure off my incision. My daughter came to visit me in the hospital and she borrowed it to rest her arm while nursing her baby!
My friend’s double mastectomy was put off for a few days due to more pressing surgeries (transplants.) She finally did have her surgery and continues to thank me about the pillow. It didn’t leave her side during the first few weeks, even with meds. She tells me it continues to be incredibly helpful right now in the car.
Thank you for all you have done!
My daughter gave me a heart shaped pillow after my back surgery. It was better than the narcotics at getting me comfortable in a chair. Thanks!
I have not been without the axilla pilla for the last 2 weeks. I can’t wait to get my drains out.
After my back surgery, I could not go anywhere without my axilla pilla. I used it in the car, in waiting rooms, and even to make it though my grandchildren’s swim meet.
