In brief: Individualized item
A mastectomy bra is usually fitted by a lady who is a trained specialist and is able to measure each patient and determine their size and options.
It can hold a breast prosthesis for cosmetic purposes and can help in recovery after mastectomy surgery.

In brief: Has special inserts
After a mastectomy, the chest becomes flat like that of a male.
To make it symmetrical, it usually needs a prosthesis in the breast cup on the mastectomy side. But the prosthesis would slip out. So the mastectomy bra has a back creating a pocket into which a prosthesis can be placed.
