Hi Story so far, I went from a G to a D too, but the consultant told me I would be a D.  You could go for the stretchy belvia bras.  I found they were ok for sleeping in, but not supportive enough for the day time.  I was told to wear a bra day and night for 6 weeks.  Good luck. E

Re: How to measure for sports bra for reduction on ok breast

Hi story so far,

I have the same problem.I am having my reduction this thursday,i am going from a G cup to what ever size my LD recon is(hard to know).Think maybe a D

Excited and nervous in equal amounts,surgeon has not said i need a bra for straight after surgery,so i am going to wait and get measured when i have healed a bit.

I have always struggled to find bras with having large breasts,will be nice to have more options with smaller breasts.Good luck with your surgery x

Re: How to measure for sports bra for reduction on ok breast

Hi I have found post surgery bras made by Macom. You measure your rib cage, say 32", and get that size bra, it adjusts to what ever cup size you become(A - FF or something!). 

I haven't bought them yet, but I will put a review post up if they are any good or not. Maybe there already is a thread about it that I haven't found yet....

Take care xx

I have no idea how to measure myself for a sports bra, as when I go for my reduction on my good breast  I have to have one. At the moment  the operated side is half the size of the good side. I hope that someone has had this trouble so please reply soon as possible please as I have one by begining of June. Thanks x
