FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tender
Fit offers 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.
Physical Therapist Assistant certified in lymphedema Kim Laguna founded
Tender Fit after many years of helping women post-mastectomy. She
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
Laguna says 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.
Laguna says that being certified in lymphedema and understanding the
lymphatic system gave her the insight to create a Post-Surgical
Bra; a Mastectomy
Bra Set and a Shirt
with Built-in Bra that is properly designed to facilitate fluids,
increase tissue healing and decrease risks of irritations.
Proprietary in design, made in the U.S.A. (patent pending), the bras are
constructed of unique fabrics that offer gentle compression and
expansion where needed. All styles are equipped with removable drain
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.
