"The ladies have commented on how soft and comfortable the bras are. The design is very well thought out without any uncomfortable seams.The Peony zip and the Peony hook and eye have both been worn. The closure at the front has been very well designed with the fabric cover so everything is smooth and appears seamless. The adjustable straps give a lot of flexibility post-surgery to allow for greater comfort. There is sufficient space under the arms to ensure that drains are not impinged. The breast surgeon thinks they are a wonderful idea and has reiterated this to the ladies who have worn the bras post-surgery. I do believe the bamboo in the fabric has expedited the healing of the wound sites."- Valerie Walker, Breast Care Nurse, Spire Thames Valley Hospital, Buckinghamshire, UK.

"My name is Jennifer Gregg. This is my story. In 2010 I had a right partial mastectomy and radiotherapy. I have being wearing mastectomy bras since. They are not particularly comfortable.In March 2015 I had a total Left mastectomy with lat-dorsi flap reconstruction. I discovered THEYA Lingerie days prior to my surgery. I emailed and explained my pending surgery and within 2 days I had the product.I wore the front fastening recovery bra 3 days post-surgery. It was so comfortable to wear. It accommodated 3 drains with ease. The material is cool and supportive. The products are so pretty, which is fantastic as most products on the market are not. I am currently 4 weeks post-surgery and doing fantastic.The two surgeons in charge of my care are extremely impressed with the products so much so that the products are now being recommended by two hospitals in the Cork area The products have made my recovery so much easier and give great shape. I will have the rest of my right breast removed in October and have a lat-dorsi flap reconstruction then. So the THEYA bra will of great benefit then. I am looking forward to future products."
-Caitriona Lawlor, Consultant Plastic Surgeon, St. Vincent’s Hospital Dublin, Ireland.
"I have been using THEYA Healthcare bras in my breast reconstruction patients for the last 6 months. The bras are very easy to choose the appropriate size for patients and the multiple options for opening the bras make wound checks and dressing changes very easy.The overwhelming response from patients has been very positive. I have been told that they are extremely soft and comfortable, supportive and easy to take on and off following surgery. I can't recommend this product and the entire THEYA Healthcare team more highly."

"I introduced THEYA Healthcare’s wonderful range of bamboo post operative wear to my practice after extensive research for my patients undergoing breast and or abdominal surgery. I have been so impressed with the garments. My patients love the comfort factor as they don't irritate sensitive wounds. Easy to put on, take off and care for. Simple, pretty, great designs and Irish too! Love them; my hunt for the perfect patient garments has happily ended."
