Masectomy Caregiver


A protective sweater for breast cancer patients

A mastectomy is an operation during which either one or both of the breasts are removed due to breast cancer. It is a heavy operation, often followed by the reconstruction of the breast(s) with tissues and fat from other parts of the body. Mastectomy Caregiver is a knitted sweater that protects the scars resulting from the procedure, acting as a protective shell with tighter and looser areas as required. The industrial knitting technique allows the garment to fit the body of a particular woman and avoid the presence of uncomfortable seams, acting as a companion during the woman’s recovery.
