Our Leonisa Contoured Posture Bra is an example of a stage one bra, with its adjustable front hooks and eyes, wide adjustable shoulder straps, and underwire-free design. It matches pretty with support, form with function.
Bodyment tip:While stage one offers the top level of compression, we have many clients who are not post-surgical and choose this style of bra simply because they adore the softness, support and comfort!
After approximately four weeks, swelling subsides and the wound reaches a more advanced stage of its healing. This results in reduced size and the need for a new garment.
Stage 2 compression wear is ideal for everyday use. These pieces do not usually have hooks and eyes, or zips, and may or may not have an open or opening crotch.
Long term benefits of stage 2 compression
Stage 1 and 2 compression wear offers a similar amount of compression in the fabric itself.
After the first four weeks post-surgery, when you need a snugger fitting garment, we recommend purchasing a product that you can continue to wear long-term.
It’ll support your body and provide better value for money. You can see the difference between stage one and stage two compression wear in our Marena Power Singlet.
Designed to support the chest, abdomen and back, it combines surgical-grade compression with every day comfort.
This vest provides sustained compression over the chest, , stomach and back to improve muscle control, stimulate the lymphatic system, and reduce soreness. The anti-microbial fabric provides extra confidence.
Our leading brands like Leonisa and Marena are scientifically designed to provide stage one and two compression. They’re also made to look and feel great!
Stage one and two: Achieving the ideal post-surgical fit
When purchasing your post-surgical garments, we strongly recommend speaking to one of our professional fitters either by phone or via our online support specialist.
We will guide you to the right size and perfect fit. With years of experience fitting patients, we understand what will happen to your body in theatre and what your needs will be afterward.
