Brand Spotlight: Amoena

Amoena Brand Spotlight

Amoena is well-known for its line of symmetry solutions: pads and prosthetic forms that even out or create breast shape, especially after mastectomies.

The Amoena bras are comfortable yet gently supportive, ideal for post-surgery. For over 35 years, Amoena has been consistently designing and improving the products available for this market.

Amoena’s bra collection includes molded soft cup bras, cotton underwire bras, t-shirt bras, balconets, front close bras and more.

Amoena is a market leader in soft-cup bra design, with 25 patents to their credit.

Amoena also supports many women’s health concerns including such organizations as CancerCare, Luminous Breast Cancer Foundation and National Consortium of Breast Centers.
