Where to Start

After your breast augmentation surgery, returning to normal life and feeling good will be top of mind. Finding the right surgical bra can help ease the recovery process by promoting a more comfortable journey. Here are our top tips for choosing a surgical bra after breast augmentation to help you recover with support and comfort. 

Size

When searching for the right post-surgical bra, accurate sizing is critical. Be sure to measure yourself properly and refer to our sizing guides to ensure the compression is applied consistently, comfortably, and to the correct areas. When measuring yourself for a bra, measure at two points: directly underneath the bust and the fullest part of the bust. If you can, get a friend to help size you and consult your doctor about the correct sizing for your recovery garment.

Style

Your recovery bra should be designed to accommodate variations in breast size due to swelling, provide compression that moves with you, and remains comfortable. Here are a few features to look out for in your recovery bra:

  • No underwire – Underwire can cause discomfort and irritate the incisions as they heal.
  • Soft, breathable fabric – You will likely be wearing your post-surgical bra 24/7,  so it’s important that your recovery bra is engineered with a fabric that will stay dry and comfortable, like our patented TriFlex™ fabric.
  • No internal seams – Like underwire, seams against the skin can cause irritation or discomfort to sensitive areas or incision sites. Wear a recovery bra, like Marena’s FlexFit™ bras, that offer outward-facing seams to promote optimal comfort against the skin.
  • Adjustable straps – Due to fluctuations in swelling and other symptoms after surgery, you may need to adjust the fit of your bra throughout your recovery. Adjustable straps will also help you achieve the best fit and comfort.

Remember, the right post-breast augmentation bra should provide support and comfort. The bra should keep your breasts in place and protect the tissue while reducing irritation and discomfort.

Consult with Your Doctor

As you would with any other questions pertaining to your recovery, our final tip for choosing a surgical bra after breast augmentation is to talk to your doctor. Everyone recovers differently, so consider consulting with your doctor to help find the right surgical bra for your size, procedure, and recovery stage.
