At first I was really upset when I was told by the surgeon that I mustn't wear underwired bras. I felt as though I was gradually being stripped of my femininity. Eventually I found some bras in Peacocks that had foam inserts and so I started wearing them every day. Oh they were soooo... comfy, it was sheer bliss. I also bought some similar ones, all hygiencally sealed up, from a market stall and they were only three for five pounds! I started remembering the sheer frustration of straps slipping off, the agony of wires digging in, too tight elastic pinching at the back, all causing horrible shoulder ache and making me feel really bad-tempered. I suddenly thought "that was like torture - why should I have to wear uncomfortable underwear in some feeble attempt to try to 'prove' that I am sexy"? Then I thought "I am obviously a woman, isn't that enough"? I decided there and then that I was no longer prepared to "suffer" any more. Nowadays I only buy comfy bras, in really bright colours but I go raving mad buying lots of saucy, frilly knickers to complement them.
you our don't mention what type of bra you are looking for, I presume it is one for post surgery. I somehow doubt they do the 'right type of thing' but Boux Avenue, in some high streets but certainly online go to the type of size you are looking for I think. My daughter wears a 30F bought there. You could have a look at their online store and see? Sorry, that may be not that helpful lol
I have a small back size too and the only places I've found that provide them are Rigby & Peller (very expensive but best bra fitting I've ever had and great bras) and Figleaves and Bravissimo. Bravissimo do have some very pretty sets and their online service is good if you can't get to one of their stores.
For immediate post-surgery bras I found Royce good (but not big enough cup sizes for me) and Macom were excellent.
Once I was able to move back to underwired bras I moved on to Wacoal after trying several others
Hope that helps. xx Sharon
Have you been back to your breast surgeon? They may well be able to do a little tweaking to enable your breasts to be evened up so that you look and feel better.
I've yet to begin my treatment but I remember that both the BC nurse and the surgeon said that adjustments could be made and there was no time limit. Some people don't have re-construction surgery until after other treatments which could be months or years after the initial surgery whereas other have the whole thing done in one operation. Everyone is different - so everyone should have what is right for them.
Yep, that's a perennial problem for me too. I wear a 30/32G so finding bras has never been easy even before surgery but now that one boob is smaller than the other it's a bit of a nightmare!
I've just discovered Wacoal bras (John Lewis sells them and some of the other big chains). They are expensive but I've found their Basic Beauty ones fab for slightly lopsided boobs as the cups are supportive but stretch/mould to your breast shape so no unsightly lumps, bumps or bulges. They make them for women without such big boobs as well (and they have a sale on at the moment so they are slightly cheaper than normal)
Hope that helps
