I had my difibulator implanted almost two years ago.  I wonder if some of the ladies could help me.  I'm having a difficult time finding a bra that does not bother the left side of my chest.  I've tried various sizes but I can't find one with a strap that doesn't push into the difibulator area.  I would appreciate any input.

Hey Susan, I have a pacemaker and it is implanted on the right side of my chest.  I have the exact same problem.  I have found that Bali Bra's have straps that are further over on the shoulders so it doesnt irrate my implant area or even lay over it.  I hope other members will post some suggestions to you soon.   Take care

Hi Susan

Not sure where you from but I do know that Nordstrom's has a bra fitness expert that works with people with implants and fitting the right bra to your particular need.

If you like Bali, you may like Lunaire bras as the strap are wider, and more comfortable in that area and as far apart as the Bali.

I have mostly Bali.................but no ICD

Bless you and good luck shopping.

Thank you so much for the info on the Bali bras.  I do live in a city that has a Nordstroms so will look into that as well.  I'll keep you informed and hopefully this info will help others too.
