Wearing Undergarments Newly Banded



Recommended Posts

My incisions are in places that make me worry about rubbing. One small one between my lower breasts...afraid to wear a bra. Then what about pants there are several incisions there too. They don't hurt, but I am afraid of them opening. How long should I wait?

I just has lap band too. I still have not worn bra or underwear. When I do, I know it will be without underwire. When was your surgery? Mine was yesterday.

I am feeling good. However, my legs and arms hurt. I wanted to go to the store today, but have few choices on what to wear. I am wearing a sun dress most of the time.

I went and bought some sports bras. No real shaping to them but they made me feel secure and not look like two cats were fighting in my shirt.

It does not hurt to eat the malt o Meal it is very watered down. I am also eating pudding sugar free of course.

I had more of an issue with pants than the bra. Just wear a comfortable bra and the line will actually rest above the incision. Other than pajama pants, I have one pair of loose fitting sweats with a comfortable waist line. . My stomach was achy and bloated making my other pants feel tight. That hurt me more than the actual incisions. Just pull your waist line below your belly. Or better yet wear night gowns if you are staying home.

My incisions are in places that make me worry about rubbing. One small one between my lower breasts...afraid to wear a bra. Then what about pants there are several incisions there too. They don't hurt, but I am afraid of them opening. How long should I wait?

As several have already said, wearing a sports bra for a while works and in regards to your waistline, wear any pants with rubber or wear dresses.

I was confused post op and on the 3rd day I removed the surgical tape on my incisions. I was so lucky that nothing horrible happened. They stayed closed and healed fine with clothing rubbing on them and everything.
