The Macom Bras

The Macom Signature Bra 

The Macom signature bra is our most popular post surgery bra. It is suitable for most breast surgery procedures, including:

  • breast augmentation
  • breast reduction
  • breast uplift
  • fat transfer to breast 
  • mastectomy 
  • Lumpectomy

The signature bra features expandable cups, no underwiring, no seams, adjustable front closure and medical grade compression. 

The Macom signature bra is perfect for use as a sleep bra or a sports bra after your surgery to help maintain your surgery. 

The Macom Ultimate Bra 


The Ultimate bra is a longline bra and has the lowest neckline out of all of our post-surgery bras to maximize wardrobe versatility. It is suitable for:

  • breast augmentation,

  • Breast uplift

  • Breast reduction

  •  Breast reconstruction

The longline design offers extended under-bust compression that helps to minimise swelling. Compression increases your blood circulation, controls pain, minimises swelling, and reduces the risks associated with surgery.

The Macom I-bra 

The Macom i-Bra is the most supportive post-surgery bra from the Macom range. It is ideal for larger implants (350cc or larger)


The i-Bra is suitable for anatomical implants and helps prevent implant rotation. The compression around the back will not only stabilise the implant but also will help to minimise swelling. 


The i-Bra might not be suitable in some cases  for a mastopexy (breast uplift) due to the double layered design,  the Signature Bra would however, be  for this procedure.

According to surgeons, maintaining a consistent external pressure on deep tissues will lessen the chances of common post-surgery complications and enhance treatment outcomes, improving healing times, minimising scarring and reducing pain.

Why The Fitting Service Stocks Macom Medical Products

 I first discovered Macom Medical whilst I was pregnant and was desperately in search of a good bump support.

 I bought the pregnancy compression shorts and thought they were so amazing that I decided to do more research into their compression garments for after giving birth. I decided to purchase the feeding vest and waist sculptor.

 The expandable cups on the feeding vest was an absolute game-changer for me, and so, when I decided to set up the fitting service I knew that I had to stock Macom products and spread the word about how truly AMAZING they are!

How to Find Your Macom Bra Size

Macom Bras follow high street sizing and you only need to know your underband measurement! 

The cups are fully expandable so they will expand to your new cup size.
