      Do you know if your insurance will pay for them.

      Ask your insurance carrier. Some private insurers will pay for one set, but federal law doesn't require it (and Medicare won't cover it, even though they'll pay for two mastectomy bras a year and one prosthesis every two years--even if you had a lumpectomy). The bipartisan National Lymphedema Treatment Act, which would require all insurers--whether private, Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare--to pay for compression garments and wrapping, and a pump if necessary. Lymphedivas has stuff on sale (seconds) all the time, which will ease some of the pain in your wallet. But their patterns (tattoo, lace, leopard, camo, flowers, etc.) are fantastic. CompressionSale offers beige and some solid colors.
