Tender Fit: Post Surgery Bras For Cancer Patients

(Filed Under wholesale Mastectomy News). Tender Fit produces three post surgery bras for breast cancer patients that “are constructed of unique fabrics that offer gentle compression and expansion where needed. All styles are equipped with removable drain pockets.”

Created by Kim Laguna, a physical therapist assistant certified in lymphedema, the patent-pending designs are offered in three versions: a shirt with built-in bra retailing for $109.99; a post surgical bra for $79.99; and a mastectomy bra set, also for $79.99.

Tender Fit was launched in 2013 and claims to offer “women recovering from mastectomy, lumpectomy, reconstruction, augmentation, reduction, heart, chest and shoulder surgeries -- as well as the effects of lymphedema -- the most comfortable and supportive bras available to date.”

According to the company, “after many years of helping women post-mastectomy,” Laguna “discovered that some of the patients she treated after breast cancer surgery -- whether the surgery was recent or as long as 30-years ago -- were affected with lymphedema either on their arm, chest, back or axillary region.” The inventor reported that her “patients and other women in the community stated how extremely tight and uncomfortable their post-surgical bras were, which led to many irritations and in some cases swelling. Having nowhere to support their drain tubes was an issue which left patients in situations to either pin or devise a method of placement inside the bra.”

The company explained that “the post surgical bra pre-surgery (cleared by the surgeon) gets donned during the procedure, thus allowing for a more comfortable recovery and proper healing. The post-surgical bra and mastectomy bra set can be worn day and night.”

Tender Fit is already selling to “several stores across South Florida,” as well as on its own website The company claims it “supplies products to the Veterans Administration Hospitals through their partnership with Veterans Medical Supply, Inc., the sole source of these products for the VA Hospitals and their Women’s Clinics.”

Tender Fit can be reached at or at (754) 422-7316.
