Designed by Plastic Surgeons & Bra Experts, in Collaboration with Patients

Dr. Adelyn Ho and Dr. Alexander Seal are both certified Plastic Surgeons and Fellows of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. They take pride in providing their patients both aesthetic, and reconstructive, breast surgery care. It was identified that, patients undergoing breast procedures are limited in post operative bra selections. In addition, there is a challenge in directing patients to an appropriate resource for garments. The existing surgical bras are restrictive in their aesthetic appeal and attention to beauty, and the options for everyday, supportive bras that meet the unique needs of their patients were limited.

"We have recognized the need for a better quality and selection of bras for women who have had breast surgery. We frequently have heard comments from our patients on the challenges in finding bras that fit them properly, as well as the discomfort of bras that they are currently wearing. This need has led to the creation of LaBratory, a Bra and lingerie company scientifically creating beautiful bras. The first area of focus for LaBratory has been to design bras specifically for women who have had breast surgery, and this is under the label Surgical Couture."
