A Post-Op Bra to Lift the Spirits

Recovering from a mastectomy, augmentation, or thoracic surgery can be an unprecedented challenge, but the right post-op garments make a huge difference. Dr. Lea Blackwell, a breast surgeon, designed the Blackwell Bra to maximize your post-op comfort as you embark on your healing journey. With a patented design and luxurious fabric, the Blackwell Bra and its companion products give the recovery process a soothing breeze.

Soothing Post-Surgical Garments Made for You

From easily adjustable clasps to gentle compression to bright colors to lift your spirits, the Blackwell Bra is designed to elevate your healing from surgery.

No more fussing with tubing or struggling to find the perfect fit — the Blackwell Bra features full adjustability plus mesh pockets for ice packs or drain bulbs. 

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 mastectomies, lumpectomies, augmentations, reductions, or heart or lung 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 more comfortable. 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.
