Breast Comfort Sling (adjustable)
Large-breasted women undergoing radiation therapy on the underside of their breasts may find their skin developing painful, sore and even weepy lesions in the skin folds beneath their breasts. The inflammation can become exacerbated by excessive perspiration and chafing, resulting from skin-to-skin contact.
This brand new and innovative product offers a great solution to discomfort beneath the breast receiving radiation therapy.
The BreastComfort Single Sling allows the breast to rest on a soft cushion encouraging air to circulate beneath the breast while wicking away perspiration to keep the sore areas dry. The cushion prevents excessive chafing of adjacent areas of skin beneath the breast; the antimicrobial properties discourage bacteria growth. The non-stretch straps can be adjusted for comfort so there is no pressure to the sore areas beneath the breast or on the neck and shoulder.
Women have found that wearing the BreastComfort Single Sling from the onset of radiotherapy, even before any side effects have begun to appear, is the most effective way to minimize uncomfortable side effects to the skin. Wearing the sling as many hours as possible throughout the day, especially when sleeping, is most effective.
The Breast Comfort Sling is fully adjustable. It is also hand washable.
Please note that this item is the SINGLE SLING, as shown in the picture.
The sling goes under just ONE BREAST.

My cousin was in her 20th treatment of radiation and we started noticing that the crease under her left breast was raw and peeling to the point of extreme pain. I was desperately searching for some type of treatment that would help and I did. This breast sling is the best . It allowed her breast to heel so much faster. If anyone is going to be starting radiation, please, please get this before starting treatment! It will help sooooo much!
