Has anyone found a strapless mastectomy bra? I ordered one through ABC. Actually, I ordered a 34A but forgot that the ABC bras run very large. So, this one was way too big for me. It does not look like they make it in a 34AA. You know, summer is coming and I have some cute clothes I would like to wear without bra straps showing. Also, does anyone want the one I have? Free to a good home. Just PM me.

Hi Carol -
I just wear a regular strapless bra and put my gel enhancers in it. It has worked great! I just got back from Mexico and many of my tops were strapless. PM me in you want more detailed info. But I'm curious...who is ABC?

Hi Laura,

I think ABC stands for American Breast Care. Just a company that makes mast. bras and pros. Although if I am wrong, someone correct me.

I ordered the strapless bra from Metromedicalonline.com that someone posted here. I too, am very small 34AA - I ordered the smallest they had a 34A and man are those cups ever big. There is no way I could wear it. I would have to put a prothesis in the side of my remaining breast just to fill it out. I will be calling them to send it back. My oldest son is getting married in Sept and I purchased an off the shoulder dress - I think I will just make my own strapless bra unless someone can tell me where to find a smaller size.

Sam,

Yes, that is the same exact one that I have. I do have one of the Anita bras that have the see through straps but I would really love a strapless. Seems to me that someone is missing a big marketing niche. Well, maybe not but I bet lots of us would buy one if we could find it in our size.

Carol and Sam
Add another one to your marketing niche. I have spent my life trying to find bras that fit, even the AAs are (were) a little (maybe more than a little) big on me. Would love to have a niche market supplier.

Go for it.

I just got an advertisement from my mast bra store, and they have a new strapless mast bra just coming out. Unfortunately, I threw the ad away, but remember thinking that it looked good. It also comes with clear straps, and straps that can be crossed in the back. I am thinking about getting one for summer sleeveless shirts that have more shoulder showing. So, there is something out there, I just can't help too much with the manufacturer. Evidently, it is just coming onto the market, because when I went to get my 2 new prostheses (whipped silicone, and I like them so much better) in March, they didn't have the strapless bra in yet.
