Types of Post-Surgery Bras: Different Styles & Materials
Different types of bras are needed after breast surgery, depending on the surgery and recovery stage.
Compression bra: This tight-fitting bra provides gentle compression to your breasts. It helps reduce swelling and fluid buildup. It can also help stabilize your implants or tissue flaps for those who had reconstruction surgery.
Front Fastening Post-Surgery Bras: Perfect and easy for dressing and undressing, this bra is designed for convenience.
Bras with no underwire: To avoid pressure on the surgery cut line that often coincides with where the underwire lies, bras with no underwires are recommended.
Sports bra: Due to its stretchy and comfortable fabric, this bra offers moderate support and movement control to your breasts, making it ideal for when you resume your physical activities after surgery.
How Should a Post-Surgery Bra Fit?
The fit of a post-surgery bra is crucial for both recovery and comfort. It should provide gentle compression while not being too tight. The straps should comfortably stay in place without digging into your shoulder or slipping off. Post-surgery bras should be adjustable to accommodate the change in your breast's shape, size, and swelling that could occur in the healing process.
