Product Description & Benefits:
The Nearly Me Lace Bandeau is a pretty and feminine soft cup bra with a delicate lace styling at the top of each cup. Created for women seeking high quality and affordable solutions, this average to full figure bra looks beautiful with any breast form and features wider side panels under the arms for extra support and added coverage. Each cup is lined with a cotton pocket for comfort and breathability and provides you with a smooth, seamless modern silhouette for a flattering look. The straps of the Nearly Me Lace Bandeau are made of a firm satin elastic to comfortably hug the shoulders and help the bra stay in place. The Lace Bandeau bra is Nearly Me's most popular bra available and comes in three colors: beige, white and black, to match any wardrobe in a fashionable way. Each bra cup has a pocket to hold and keep the breast form (breast prosthesis) comfortably in place. This bra is appropriate for all types of mastectomy/breast cancer surgery (radical, simple, partial, bilateral), lumpectomy, breast reconstruction, and breast conserving procedures.
The Nearly Me brand has been a leader in the health care industry for over 30 years. Originally developed in 1976 by Ruth Handler, the creator of the Barbie Doll and former CEO of the Mattel Corporation, Nearly Me is one of the only two companies that manufacture products exclusively in the United States. Ms. Handler, a mastectomee herself, created quality products that fit the individual after breast surgery and were extremely comfortable. Nearly Me Technologies continues this tradition by creating products that fit the physical as well as the emotional needs of the mastectomee and responds to the consumer needs by offering innovative and superior performing products to help women look and feel beautiful.

Accessories To Enhance Your Look & Comfort: In the Bra & Form Accessories area of the store, you can find a wide variety of products that are important for enhancing the look of your breasts and for improving comfort while wearing your breast form and bra. Among the types of accessories that you can find include bra inserts, push-up and filler pads to help fill out the bra and add coverage, bra extenders to extend the bra and make it wider, bra pockets that can be sewn into a bra or swimsuit to create a post-mastectomy garment, silicone nipples, balanced-fit-cushions to help you avoid bra twisting and hide hanging underarm flesh, shoulder straps to prevent straps from slipping off the shoulders, washing solution for washing bras, breast forms, and form covers, and other beneficial accessories.
Instructions For Use: The bra is put on like a regular bra. The breast form must be inserted into the bra before the bra is worn. The breast form should remain wrapped inside the breast form cover when put inside the bra pocket. Insert the breast form (with the form cover intact) delicately into the bra pocket, while avoiding excessive pulling or squeezing. After placing the breast form in the pocket, you can put on the bra as you would with a regular bra.
Measuring Myself Correctly & Getting The Right Size: Knowing how to measure yourself correctly and getting the right bra size is the most crucial step of selecting the proper bra. A breast form (prosthesis) is only as effective as the bra that supports and carries it. Wearing the right bra size will also help avoid causing excessive pressure and potential damage to the breast form. For this reason, please view the Size Chart, Fitting & Measuring Tips (and read the fitting and measuring tips) associated with this product so you can choose the right bra size.

Garment Care:It is recommended to hand wash the garment in warm water with mild soap or with specialized garment washing/cleansing solutions such as TruKleen Washing Solution. Fabric softeners are not recommended. For best results, the bra should be hung until it is completely dry. Taking care of your bra will prolong the elasticity of the fabrics, extend the lifetime of the bra, and provide longer lasting comfort, security and an overall natural look and feel.
Important Healthy Tip: Due to long, continuous periods of time that you may need to wear the garment, it is recommended to purchase 2 bras. Having two bras will enable you to always have a freshly clean bra, while the soiled one is being washed.
