Suppliers of mastectomy products

This document provides details of some Irish companies that fit and sell breast prosthesis and bras for women who have had a mastectomy (removal of the breast) or a lumpectomy (partial breast removal). The list below is not exhaustive but the Irish Cancer Society also provides an extensive list of fitters if you need more information on this.

Following breast surgery you will be fitted with a temporary breast prosthesis which is worn for the first few weeks until your body has healed. After this you will be fitted for your permanent breast prosthesis (full or partial) and bra by a breast care nurse or trained mastectomy fitter. Most lingerie shops and department stores have trained fitters or your breast care nurse in the hospital or the Irish Cancer Society can give you a list of qualified fitters in your area.

All women who have had breast cancer surgery (either mastectomy or lumpectomy) are entitled to their first prosthesis and two bras free of charge. Medical Card holders are entitled to two bras every year and one breast prosthesis every two years. To access this you need a prescription from your GP which then needs to be approved by your local health office. Some fitters will take care of this paperwork for you. Some health insurance policies will reimburse private patients for bras, prosthesis and swimwear that they purchase privately. You need to check your policy to see what is covered and how you should submit your claim. Alternatively VAT paid on medical equipment which is privately purchased can be reclaimed from Revenue each year. Contact your local revenue office for more information on this.

The Irish Cancer Society has produced guidelines entitled ‘standards of care for breast prosthesis and bra fitting services’, which provide information on what to expect when you go to a prosthesis and bra fitting service. These standards of care and other practical information about mastectomy products are available on the Irish Cancer Society’s website: www.cancer.ie.
