Frequently Asked Questions

How long should I wear the Thongbra®? Most plastic surgeons recommend 8 weeks 24/7. However, many patients feel they     still need some support after that time and slowly wean themselves off of the Thongbra® over a period of a few months. Since every patient is unique, we recommend that you follow your plastic surgeon's advice.

Why does it cost so much? Each Thongbra® is handmade in the USA of the finest materials to give constant support and pressure on the cleavage area. The Thongbra® is a post surgical support garment designed for a specific purpose; it holds the cleavage in place and keeps the breasts separated. We have continued to improve the design and implement new materials that are comfortable yet maintain even pressure during the healing process. It will not lose its resiliency or permit permanent deformation. The base cost for a Thongbra® is $125.00

Is it machine washable?The best way to wash the Thongbra® is by hand, but it can be washed in a garment bag on the gentle cycle using cold water. The Thongbra® should be line dried due to its elastic properties. We do not recommend it be placed in the dryer.

Is the Thongbra® guaranteed? The Thongbra® is guaranteed against any signs of poor workmanship or fabric failure. It is not guaranteed to fix symmastia. That depends on the surgical procedure that is used and many other variables.

Where can I find more information on the surgical procedure for symmastia?

What colors are available? The Thongbra® is available in White, Beige and Black.
