What never ceases to amaze all of the Bare Basics staff members is the positive attitude women have and how appreciative they are when we find the perfect fit. We’ve all had more than one kiss after the fitting!” says Sandy Hosein, Owner of Bare Basics.

Our Steveston store offers the most up-to-date mastectomy bras and prostheses from well-known companies like Trulife, Amoena, Anita, and Jodee. Another benefit of visiting a lingerie shop for your post-surgical needs is our ability to fit you in a regular bra, and our selection is amazing!

We also carry a variety of bras for clients undergoing reduction surgery.
