OUR Story

Nancy & Leah Wyrick

Leah Wyrick founded Three Strands Recovery Wear in 2018 during her freshman year at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. Motivated by her mother Nancy’s journey through a breast cancer diagnosis in 2016, which involved a mastectomy and three subsequent surgeries due to complications, Leah witnessed the challenges of recovery, particularly concerning drains and uncomfortable bras. Inspired by her mother’s experience, Leah embarked on a mission to address the stagnation in today’s surgical bras, aiming to provide meaningful solutions for others facing similar challenges. 

We would not be where we are today without the love and support extended by our patients, physician partners, friends, and family. Our mission is to reach and positively influence as many patients as possible through the innovative Resilience Bra, and we’re seeking your support to achieve this. Let’s connect and explore ways we can collaborate to make a global impact with our product.

Recovery Bras Suck, AND HERE'S WHY

Let's say goodbye to koozie drain holders

The Hard Truth

Current recovery bras today only provide the bare minimum forcing patients to develop their own solutions to post-surgical complications, such as creating drain pocket holders from aprons and beer koozies or even resorting to taping drains to their skin. Not only do competitor bras lack critical features for recovery, they also lack the comfort patients need during the 0-8 weeks post-surgery period.

The Resilience Bra

The Resilience Bra combines multiple unique features targeted to reduce the risk of complications from occurring, provide greater comfort to patients and promote confidence in women through unique, colorful patterns.

Our product includes unique features to help aid in the comfort of each patient. 

  • Soft, breathable fabric

  • Flexible and supportive front closure

  • Padded Shoulder Straps

  • Adjustable Compression Band

  • Drain Pocket Holders

  • Internal Pockets

The Resilience Bra was created with the input of over 200 physicians and patients so that its design includes all the necessary features a patient needs for their healing journey.

The Resilience Bra Knocks Out the Competition!

Today, competitor post-surgical bras fall short in providing a comprehensive solution that manages post-surgical drains, adapts to a patient’s changing body throughout the healing process, offers the comfort needed for 24/7 wear and is aesthetically pleasing to help restore self-confidence in patients.
