Hi I'm new here but have recently undergone surgery. The hospital recommended an Asda sports bra to be worn day and night - they are black with a zip up the front - very reasonable £8 each. I have found them useful and confortable but did order a range of sizes larger than my usual size - easy to collect and return.
I bought two comfy crop tops from Tesco but they don't seem to be in stock any more so will look at the Sainsburys one for my next op.
Sometimes you can stand in the crop top and pull it up from your feet, saves lifting your arms and all that fabric rolling up.
I’m in an Asda post op front fastening bra post WLE /SNB. I couldn’t wear m&s post op bra as have pressure dressings on for 48hours. Asda bras are comfortable but cant adjust straps (could use a hairband to shorten strap or sew it).
I have an m&s front fastening sports bra but will try that when I’m healed and comfy.
Hi LeanneC78 I was recommended to wear a sports bra with a bra extender and found a pair in M&S after an exhaustive search. You can find a set of one black, one white without stitching on the breast area. I recommend that you go for a Fitting if you feel up to it as the breast size I finally found comfortable was totally different from my normal size. I also got the Sainsbury’s crop tops which are very smooth but hard to get on with no openings, so I’m holding those over for when I have radiotherapy. Hope this helps. Best wishes for your recovery.
Hi, after a lumpectomy and sentinel lymph node biopsy resulting in two wound sites I tried Evans sleep bras as an alternative to my usual underwired bras. However the side seams made my SLNB wound sore so I'd suggest seam free ones if you can get them. But these bras are difficult to get on and off if your arm and shoulder movement is restricted. You might like to try M&S extra high impact sports bras from their Post Surgery range. They have a zip up front so should be easier to get on and off. Hope you soon find something suitable, Leeanne.
Hello and welcome. A lot of ladies on here have gone for crop tops as they tend to be easier so I wonder if it is worth you trying one of them.
