About The Compressure Comfort Bra

altSpecially designed by Lesli Bell, PT/CLT - LANA, and Lisa Lindahl, inventor of the Jogbra®, The Torso Compressure Comfort® Garment for lymphedema and other post surgical needs features the unique, patented Torso Compressure Comfort® System, which offers fashionable comfort and gentle compression for swelling due to chest and breast lymphedema.

altSimply put, conventional bras are not designed to deal effectively with lymphedema or post-surgical discomfort in the chest and breast area. The thin straps, non-stretch cups, and underwires found in conventional bras can increase pain and irritate tender tissue. Sports bras provide needed compression, but their lack of adjustability and short silhouette make it uncomfortable for many patients to wear them. The patented Torso Compressure Comfort® Garment utilizes expert engineering, state-of-the-art fabrication and high-quality construction to apply continuous gentle compression and support to the chest and breast area, and can be worn comfortably and unobtrusively under clothing.

 

The Torso Compressure Comfort® Garment is so unique that it has been granted a Utility Patent by the U.S. Most of the time this specially designed, highly adjustable bra can accommodate the needs of patients with truncal and breast lymphedema. Compression is a standard part of the treatment for swelling from many diferent causes. It is appropriate for lymphedema, and helps to keep lymphatic fluid from building up in the trunca/breastl area. The fluid build-up can be uncomfortable to very painful. The Torso Compressure Comfort® Garment can make an enormous difference in patients’ quality of life.

   

The Torso Compressure Comfort® Garment was designed to provide a gentle caress of compression over critical areas of the chest, breasts and back, while helping to address the specific needs of women with chest or breast lymphedema.

The Torso Compressure Comfort® Garment features:

  • Gentle COMPRESSION all around the torso

  • Unprecedented ADJUSTABILITY with both a front zipper and a 3-position back closure

  • Attractive shape that can be worn comfortably and UNOBTRUSIVELY under clothing

  • Adjustable, comfortable, and unobtrusive design elements that combine to form a SUSTAINABLE treatment aid that women can really use every day

All of these pads were developed for a very specific use and are very effective when used properly.  If you have any questions about how these pads can help you or your patient, please call customer service at 1-877-760-4943.

The Torso Compressure Comfort® Garment is not a mastectomy bra. Mastectomy bras are designed to hold prostheses securely in place. TheTorso Compressure Comfort® Garment does much more. It is a compression garment for the truncal area, which is defined as the torso, with or without breasts. (We call it a bra simply because it can comfortably accommodate breast tissue if it is present.)

The Torso Compressure Comfort® Garment was specifically designed to provide comfortable compression for patients with truncal/breast lymphedema, which is the painful retention of lymphatic fluid in the torso. Mastectomy bras are simply not designed to provide compression. . Moreover, depending on their design, some mastectomy bras may be contraindicated for lymphedema, because they may cut into tender, swollen tissue and/or block the drainage of lymphatic fluid.

 

Yes, it’s important to remember that while the Torso Compressure Comfort® Garment makes an effective and comfortable prosthesis holder, a mastectomy bra cannot substitute as a compression garment. (Analogy: while you can wear high-tech running shoes to the supermarket, you cannot run a race in a pair of high heels!).

 

In addition, the Torso Compressure Comfort® Garment is specially designed to accommodate mastectomy patients, or patients who choose not to wear a prosthesis.  Because of our unique Natural Stretch ConformCup™. We know that not every breast is a perfect match to its partner, if it has one. Not every woman’s body is perfectly symmetrical. The ConformCup forms itself comfortably to the breast/chest wall regardless of size or shape. Our A/B cup is perfect for mastectomy patients and women who elect not to wear prostheses.
