The Blackwell Bra Story

The Blackwell Bra is the best post-surgical bra for your healing journey. It’s the only one on the market designed by a surgeon to ensure maximum comfort as you recover from mastectomy or thoracic surgery.

The Blackwell Bra and its companion products, the Thoracic Compression Bra and the Drain Apron, were designed by Dr. Lea Blackwell to make her patients happy and their post-op recovery faster. They are made in the USA with luxurious, stretchy Italian fabric, and they feature front clasps to make them easier to adjust, pockets to hold post-op drains, and mesh panels to allow breathability.


"My bra had a bright uplifting color made from lightweight soft Italian material that had external pockets to conveniently hold either drains or ice packs. It quickly dried after washing and was very comfortable to sleep in."
