Post Surgery, Mastectomy and Reconstruction Bras

Hey All!

I wanted to share a wonderful lady I had an appointment with today, her name is Genevieve Gort and her business is Breast Care Victoria & Surgical Garments, she is a Registered Nurse but now does bra fittings for Breast Cancer Women. She works in a studio at home in Port Melbourne. I have to say it was such a wonderful experience to get out of this stupid Amoena Bra!!! and into a much better post surgery bra! she liaises with Surgeons and Plastics Nurses to try and get this different compression surgical bra in place. It zips up at the front with hooks and eyes on the shoulders. I purchased about 3 other types, they have NO underwire, 1 cream, 1 black and a Rose Coloured one, very feminine looking. They ranged from $78-$90 each, but so worth it! My health fund also paid a benefit of up to 4 garments per year up to $150, so I was out of pocket approx $160 for 4. They are so comfortable and I feel so much better! She is extremely lovely, and loves her job!! So I highly recommend this lady in Melbourne for post surgery, mastectomy and or reconstruction Bras! She has a web site but needs to be upgraded.

    I second everything @melclarity says about Genevieve Gort. As well as a lovely manner, she provides super helpful tips and has a solid understanding how medical insurance companies work. Highly recommended!

    @RubyRumble what I love about them is the support, and just so comfy, so much better than I ever used to wear! :) I have a skin tone one too which is like a tshirt bra. x
