Founding Partners

Ipomia are founded by a group of entrepreneurs, designers and leading plastic surgeons.
We all saw the need to create post breast surgery bras that the patients actually wanted to wear. Together we changed the industry for post-op bras and created an innovated designed collection of bras which are loved by the patients and has all the aspects a plastic surgeon asks for with support, compression, positioning and materials to secure the recovery period. Years of development, testing and inventing are behind the collection. Our demands of quality are very high, and all products are made in Europe with the finest materials from France, Germany and Italy.
