She experienced firsthand how uncomfortable and poorly designed the traditional sports bras were while choosing to wear them for physical therapy, to work out and later needing to wear a compression bra in recovery.
It was at that time Marla decided to develop a truly comfortable bra that would provide the right balance of comfort, compression and style that a woman wants and needs before, during and after recovery.
Surgeons may recommend to their patients during post-op visits many types of cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery procedures, that they can transition into a traditional sports bra and not to wear an underwire bra just after their post-op bra. Most women at this point in recovery don’t feel like shopping for a bra, let alone trying one on. There are many kinds of sports and post surgery bras and it’s hard to know which one is best. A front zipper bra is helpful to put on and a longline bra can avoid incision sites. Many post-surgical and sports bras on the market have racer backs and higher fronts which are not stylish with lower necklines.
The MarlaHopeBra™ is a welcomed solution. Up until The MarlaHopeBra™, seamless post surgical or sports bras with front zippers were non-existent. The MarlaHopeBra™, made exclusively with Soft N Seamless Knit Design™ is perfect for a workout, a day at the office or shopping and even a night out. Not long after women began wearing the MarlaHopeBra,™ Marla realized that women wanted to wear it anytime as it became their everyday comfortable bra.
