Post Op Bra Size



Recommended Posts

Can I just say I never thought I’d be going from a 38G to a 32D? 32 band size, what? 😳

But rant wise, I’ve gone through 4 sets of bras since starting this journey 9 months ago. I just bought 3 new ones in the hopes the girls are done shrinking at 5lbs from goal 🤞 But when the bra gap game gets too strong...gotta cave and shop!

Anyone else enjoying the shelling out for new bras every 2 months or so? 😂

I went from a 44H to a 38DD!

I am satisfied with buying less expensive bras at $10 from Walmart or wherever vs $60 from Lane Bryant. When im finally at my stable size I'll get fancier lol and buy from Victoria's Secret.

Yes! First I bought one at a time of whatever new size, then I went to JCPenny and got 2/$20 on their sales. Just got these 3 from VS and man I hope I don’t regret it 😂

I tried on a few from VS and they seem forgiving and sturdy so you shouldn't have a problem even if you lose a few extra lbs

I was kind of hoping I could cheap out with sports bras for a while, that they might be a little more forgiving if I misjudge the cup size or something while I'm losing. No? Is that not a thing?

My sports bras rubbed my incision. I wore no bra until I went back to work 3 weeks post op

I went from 42DD --> 38D --> 36C??

At first I was excited I could fit into my "special occasion" bras without the extender. But now I no longer fill up the cup :(.

Currently in a 38D, but bra gap game is getting strong :lol:, so I'll have to move down soon, 36C I'm guessing?

I've gone from a 40H @ 377, then at the time of my surgery I was a 40G, for a while I after I was a 38F but now my back shrunk and I am a 36F. I have major droopage so I need really good bras to keep them perky--$60 a pop at least. So yeah, very sick of the new bras---if my cup size goes down again I may stuff them!! :lol:

I have this issue as well. I went from a 42DD to now a 34D. I am sure it will go down even more. I am horrible and get all my bras from VS. It is the one thing I will spend money on.

I went from a 40D to 34B. I’m very happy with my size and shape, and am below goal right now.

Preop the largest bras I bought were 42D and 40DD. I am currently wearing a 38D on the smallest hook so band size is going down. I buy all my bras from Soma since I just love their brand. They are expensive ($40-$60 range) but they are always sending coupons and I try to buy during clearance sales. I currently have 2 that I just totally missed the window on wearing that are new with tags so I will be selling them on eBay. Right now I wear Shapewear type tank tops more than actual bras since I am home most of the time. Since I still have a ways to go I expect to wind up at 36B or C which was my size for most of my normal weight years. Not planning a lift or implants.

This is something I've been looking forward to as soon as I decided on surgery. Losing boobs. I've been big chested since middle school and I'm sitting at a 46G right now. Please Lord take some away! [emoji16][emoji16]

Started at a 48DD, now wearing 42DD. I try to hit up sales. I’ve been in the 42DD for a little over a month. Only the leisure one is getting too big. But yeah- bras are super expensive. Especially when you have a larger cup and can’t settle for a lot of the cheap brands, as they lack the structure you need!
