Lymphoedema solutions from Anita
Bra fitters working together with Lymphoedema Therapists can be an integral part of self-care for patients, and can make life so much more comfortable, and the condition more manageable.
Anita’s LymphOfit Bra #1100 is considered the gold standard of treatment for lymph congestion in the breast and thorax area by many leading Specialists around the world. LymphOfit is TGA approved here in Australia.
This moulded-cup front-opening, high-backed bra provides controlled compression from the sides to the under bust section, while the all-over textured fabric has a massaging and draining effect on the subcutaneous tissue and minor lymph vessels.
Everyday bra choices should have a wide shoulder strap and a wide, supportive side. As with regular bra fittings, the band should not be too tight, and the edges of the cup should not cut in. This will ensure lymph flow is not restricted.
You’ll find there’s a great range of suitable styles in the Anita portfolio. There are also some great solutions for lymphoedema of the legs. Contact us or Glenda Harris 0455 106 588 or firstname.lastname@example.org … we are here to help!
