ComfortSlings Single Sling


ComfortSlings® Single Sling




The ComfortSlings® Single Sling, designed especially for women receiving radiation for breast cancer, is worn when one is not wearing a bra. The non-stretch strap is worn cross-body across the shoulder with the soft cushion tucked beneath the breast giving freer air circulation beneath the breast while wicking away perspiration to keep the sore areas dry. The cushion prevents excessive chafing from skin-to-skin contact beneath the breast; the antimicrobial properties discourage bacteria growth. The strap is fully adjustable for comfort so there is no pressure to the sore areas beneath the breast or on the neck or shoulder. Begin wearing the ComfortSlings® Single Sling from the onset of radiotherapy, even before side effects have begun to appear, using it as many hours during the day as possible and especially while sleeping. For 24-hour protection, supplement with the ComfortSlings® Strapless Bra Cushions worn during the day inside a bra.

The Double ComfortSlings<sup>®</sup> in Regular and Plus Sizes


ComfortSlings® Double Sling




The ComfortSlings® Double Sling, worn without a bra, is an ideal solution for large-breasted women suffering from radiation burns, yeast infections, skin rashes, fungus and other irritations beneath their breasts. Two length-adjustable straps are joined at the back to form a “Y”.  Soft cushions, tucked beneath each breast, allow freer air circulation beneath the breast while wicking away perspiration to keep sore areas dry.  The cushions prevent excessive chafing from skin-to-skin contact 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 or shoulder.  Wearing the ComfortSlings® Double Sling whenever one is not wearing a bra, especially while sleeping, offers the best results.  Supplement with ComfortSlings®  Strapless Bra Cushions worn inside a bra for 24-hour protection.  The double sling is available in regular and plus sizes only.  Women needing the EXTRA-PLUS double sling should purchase two  ComfortSlings® Single Slings. Worn cross-body, they will serve the same purpose as the ComfortSlings® Double Sling.

ComfortSlings Cushioned Pads


ComfortSlings® Strapless Cushioned Pad




ComfortSlings® Strapless Cushioned Pads are designed to be worn inside the bra cup, providing protection from excessive perspiration and chafing.  Moisture is wicked away from the skin while the antimicrobial properties discourage bacteria growth.  Some women might find it necessary to buy a larger bra size when wearing the cushioned pads. It is advisable to use the strapless cushioned pads with a bra that has a band beneath the underwire to prevent the cushions from slipping out of place.  For maximum protection, wear a ComfortSlings® Double Sling or a  ComfortSlings® Single Sling when you are not wearing a bra, especially while sleeping.

FOR RADIATION THERAPY

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.

The ComfortSlings® Single Sling allows the breast to rest on a soft cushion giving freer air circulation 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; – 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 ComfortSlings® Single Sling from the onset of radiotherapy, even before any side effects have begun to appear, is the most effective way to minimize excessive side effects to the skin. Wearing the sling as many hours as possible throughout the day, especially when sleeping, is most effective.

As the ComfortSlings® can only be worn without a bra, many women prefer to supplement the slings with the ComfortSlings® Strapless CushionedPads.* The pad, with no straps, is tucked beneath the breasts inside the bra, offering both a comfort to sore breasts throughout the day and further protection from rubbing against the bra itself.

FOR LARGE BREASTS

Women with large breasts often suffer yeast infections, skin rashes, fungus and other irritations due to excessive perspiration and poor circulation under their breasts. The moisture irritates the skin and the area becomes further inflamed as the breast tends to rub against the skin beneath it. The ComfortSlings® Double-Sling is an ideal solution.

Two length-adjustable straps are joined at the back to form a “Y”; the cushions are tucked beneath each breast and held in place simply by the weight of the breasts. Perspiration is minimized by the wicking treatment of the cushion. Air circulation encourages healing of sore and inflamed areas beneath the breast. Wearing the ComfortSlings® Double-Slings whenever not wearing a bra, especially while sleeping, offers the most comfort.

Women who want to increase their protection when wearing a bra, can use the ComfortSlings® Strapless Cushioned Pads*. ComfortSlings® Strapless Cushioned Pads are tucked beneath the breasts to help eliminate excessive moisture and reduce abrasion of the skin rubbing against the bra.

*Some women may find it necessary to purchase a larger bra size when wearing the ComfortSlings® Strapless Cushioned Pads.

*It is preferable to wear a bra with a band beneath the underwire in order to prevent the strapless cushioned pads from slipping out of place.
