up a band size x
I am 10 weeks post surgery and still can only wear post surgery bras. Standard mastectomy bras tend to be thinner sides and straps and cut in my swelling in the wrong places. Def need front fastening and comfort ones to begin with and I was told they need to be very tight to prevent too much swelling. Good luck xx
PS I had to wear a bigger bra size than normal at first due to swelling
I bought a couple of post surgery bras before my MX and reconstruction. They're very similat to sports bras, front fastening with hooks and eyes. I know a lot of ladies just buy regular sports bras.
I'm now 12 weeks post op and although I have bought some non-wired mastectomy bras, they're still not really very comfortable for more than a few hours and I tend to live in my post surgical ones unless I'm going out and wearing something that requires something a little less industrial looking underneath.
And yes... mastectomy bras are the same sizing as a regular bra .:)
I am currently undergoing chemo and will be having the operation around Christmas (hopefully just after rather than just before if I get my way). In the meantime, it occurred to me that maybe it would be good to have at least one post-operative bra available in advance and this is where I have run into a snag.
I am normally a 32G (not an easy size at the best of times). Looking on-line masectomy bras just don't come in this size. I am right to assume that a masectomy bra would be the same size as a pre-op bra?
Has anyone else had problems with bra sizes?
(PS absolutely zilch at M&S (they never fit anyway) and figleaves)
