The Amoena Valetta Camisole is a must-have for any women’s wardrobe after mastectomy surgery for breast cancer. The brand’s most popular camisole was the first to feature an integrated shelf bra with modal pockets and remains at the heart of the Amoena Leisure collection.
This pocketed camisole top can hold your breast form or shaper - no bra required. The wire-free camisole bra feature uses an innovative fabric with a firm stretch to support your body after breast cancer.
Key Features and Benefits
The double spaghetti straps create a ready-to-wear look and feature a back adjustment for the ideal fit. The stretchable fabric straps are ultra-soft and won’t dig into your shoulders uncomfortably or chafe sensitive skin.
The Valletta’s ultra-soft modal fabric is less likely to pill or fade and resists shrinking better than cotton fabric. The COOLMAX® ACTIVE fabric also helps regulate your body temperature by wicking moisture away from the body, allowing it to evaporate.
The rounded neckline sits midway up the chest wall for modesty yet looks fashionably casual. It is perfect for wearing on its own on a hot summer day or paired with a sweater or cardigan when the temperature drops.
A built-in pocketed shelf bra offers medium support with lightly padded cups for additional shaping. The COOLMAX® ACTIVE fabric-in pockets won’t irritate surgical sites or scar tissue and creates a protective barrier between your body and your breast forms.
The Valletta shelf-bra mastectomy camisole eliminates the need for a closure feature with a wide rounded neck, making it easy to step in and out of. This feature allows for easy post-surgery dressing for women with a limited range of upper body movement.
The comfortable length falls to the hips, and the stretchable fabric straps allow you to adjust the shoulder length, providing you with the level of coverage you need. The Valletta post-surgery camisole is a slim fit over the waist, accentuating your natural curves and giving you a feminine silhouette.
Caring for the Amoena Valletta Camisole
The Amoena Valletta is constructed from modal stretch fabric, but to prolong the life of your garment and maintain the texture of the ultra-soft fabric, you need to follow the instructions on the care label.
Modal fabric is machine-washable and won’t overstretch or lose its shape like cotton fabric. Use mild detergent and a thorough rinse cycle to ensure that all traces of the cleaner are removed from the fabric. This protects your garment from premature wear and tear and your skin from irritation.
You can tumble dry the garment on a low-medium setting, and because the modal-spandex blend is synthetic, iron the camisole inside-out to avoid shiny patches.
