Ok, 1 thing I am not so happy about 1 week post op...



Recommended Posts

This morning the post op swelling in my abdomen has FINALLY taken a hike, but it appears that my boobs hitched a ride with it. I swear I dropped a full cup size in a week. That was a undesired side effect!

LOL... I just ordered 2 bras for the smaller cup size! BOO! I knew they would be the first to go for me. They always are. Went from a 40C to 38B. Just under 4 weeks post op, but also 4 months total of weight loss. By the end of weight loss... assuming I get close to where I really want to be... I will be an A cup.

I've lost so much boob pre-op that I'm pretty sure I'll have nothing left a month or two post-op. I figure since they're one of the things that I'm confident about, they'll be sure to run for the hills. I have refused to buy new bras yet through, I should probably start stuffing these ones or just stick with sports bras for now. 🤣

It doesn’t take much to lose a cup size, it’s only 1” in measurement per cup size. Your under bust measurement (gotta pull that measure tape tight) is your band size rounded up or down if need be. And measure loose on the fullest part of your bust. Each inch difference between the two is one cup size. As a general guideline since bra styles vary plus other factors.

I had some nice Freya deco bras that I loved but with sudden weight gain didn’t fit anymore, they were size 30F UK (30G in U.S.) of course I bargain hunted them when I got them but they were practically brand new when they stopped fitting. So I put them away. I’d bought bigger sizes from Target. But After surgery I just wore sports bras for a while. But then finally my Freya bras fit now! They are a moulded cup so give some shape. I just hope I get some wear out of them awhile. I hate bra shopping since I’m weirdly small in the under bust area and stores don’t sell the band size unless their sizing runs small. I used to find in Nordstrom rack but last few times their inventory was terrible, then Again I only shop the clearance rack.

Yes I would always wear a C cup but when I went Monday to get measured I went up to a D ( at Victoria Secret)

I went from a 46D to a 36B. I like it a lot better, though.

Well I THOUGHT I would settle in at a 36B (former 42DD), but alas, the poor old girls are now down to 34 A! So pitiful. It does make mammograms a whole lot easier, however,
