Best advice on wearing a bra after surgery



Recommended Posts

Just had surgery one week ago , I'm big busted, so I have to wear bras with wire for support. I know lane Bryant carries sports bras, does anyone know if that would be my best option . Still healing from surgery.

I am very heavy chested...42 HH. I'm 2 weeks out and my old bras, even with the wiring, are getting more comfortable and I can wear one all day now instead of pulling it off as soon as I can . My girls, even after a breast life, are now going South! HTH!

I bought some at old navy that are quite comfortable and provide decent support. Thanks for the reminder, gotta buy a few more lol.

sports bra. I had a soft one from Spanx that I wore post op to doc office and during time of recovery. It was soft, comfortable and offered more support than some.

I wore a padded bandage over that incision for a couple weeks to protect it and wore my regular wired bras. Worked perfect.

I wore sports bras, but @@OutsideMatchInside idea should work perfectly. The incision along the bra line is fairly small, so either a small bandage taped in place or just two sports bras (helps make up for not having a wire) would work too.

Let me revise what I said. I wore sports bras around the house and to work out and wired bras when I went shopping and to the doctor.

That is the smallest incision with the least amount of pain, for me anyway. Padding it out totally works.

I wear playtex 18 hour bras - 42 g presurgery and now 40 g after 4 months. There's no wire so they're pretty comfortable all the time. (I can never go out in public without them) For added padding around my incisions I also wore my spanks for the first month or so under my bra line. I buy the bras online since a g cup is pretty hard to find.

I'm a 38H and I had to have help putting my bra on. I would place of where it goes and my husband would have to clip it. I didn't have a problem with the top incision. My bra was right above it

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
