  1. you can get these bras online, I bought my second one from bodyment.Com.au. The first one I bought was at Chez Ma Belle in Geelong, thats wear I was fitted. The ladies there are so lovely. Also, 32D is the smallest they had, and it fits me great.
  2. I have a Bonds slinky wirefree and really like it, bit I'm only a small,D cup http://www.bonds.com.au/slinky-tops-wire-free-yytcy-bac.html
  3. where did you buy this? Looks great!
  4. Yay GeeK! Dr Rahdon and the hospital staff are all so great, arent they? cant wait to see More piccies
  5. yep, I paid about $8000 total, hopefully it works out with the paperwork and I can get back about $300 for the anaethetist so my total Out of pocket will be like $7700. Pretty good. medicare is strict, and they take forever and a day to make an assessment! im feeling great, thanks for asking almost completely back back to normal. In fact the only thing not normal yet is certain exercises at the gym (I started back on Monday, couldn't be happier!). Lat pulldowns felt super weird so I went really light. Some ab work (like jackknife sit ups) feel like they are pulling on my incisions a bit but nothing extreme. All the swelling I was worried about has completely gone too, and the size is pretty much perfect!
  6. hey soph, Well I was quoted and paid the Out of pocket for Dr Rahdons fees (so over and above what Medicare cover), and I also was quoted and paid the hospital for just the portion of cosmetic time in theatre (again, over and above what my health insurance covers). Im not expectig to get get anything bck for the hospital Or Dr Rahdon, but I did pay the anaethetist in full - and if the procedure is Medicare-approved, then the anaethetist shoudl be able to reissue me an invoice with Medicare item numbers so I can claim about $300 back. Would be nice to get that before Christmas, but when I emailed Dr Rahdons office askig them to fwward a copy of my Medicare approvl to the anaethetist office, they said thy dont have it on file!! Waiting to hear back now, its really dragging out. Wat prompted me tO follow up again was A few days ago got was an invoice for Dr Rahdon with a Medicare number and additional $550-odd owing amount on it, and a sticky note saying 'take to Medicare for rebate'. I assume it meant that my approbal had been recieved and to take the invoice to Medicare and get a cheque made out in Dr Rahdons name. To follow up the approval I reckon ive emailed like 5 times. I cant get to Medicare until end of next week so i'll see what they say about Dr Rahdons account, and also wait for his office get back to me about forwardig the approval to the anesthetist rooms too. P.S I apologise for the spelling, grammar and frmatting. Somy Xperia tablets are the wrost for trying to type and even worsw to try to go back and fix
  7. Yayyyyy!!! Congratulations! Looking good already! So glad it all went well for you. :D
  8. Hi Tassie Kate, I am one month post-op BA with Dr Rahdon. Assymetry case. In my surgery story above I listed my out of pocket costs. Feel free to ask me any questions .. ive friended you so if you accept you can see my results. i had originally booked with TCI in Bondi prior to all the negative stories and media, so glad I went with Dr Rahdon. I likely would have had a consult with Dr Mirkazemi of Dr Rahdon didn't suit (which he did, he's great!)

  10. I believe the general consensus is to stay within 1cm (over or under) your Bwd. Every surgeon of course then has their own view on this too and you have to put alot of trust in your PS when it comes to choosing a size because you never know exactly how they will look size-wise until their actually in. Sizers and looking at photos helps of course, but its not the same thing. Im 163cm, normally weigh between 52-55kg, bwd of 11.5cm, pre-op I was a B cup. I got 225 in the right, 275 in left due to assymetry. I liked the look of these in all BA photos I had seen, but I didnt factor in my starting breast tissue and I look bigger with my 225/275 than others ive seen. I'm almost one month post op and fitting into a D cup. Unfortunately I dont think they will get any smaller. They arent huge, but they are bigger than what I thought 225/275 could get me to. I am in the minority though as most ladies will go the largest their surgeon will allow and many still experience boob greed. In saying this, im very happy with my results but i'd know how they would look once in, I probably would have pushed my PS to go just a touch smaller. Dont forget that with implants, you always measure larger than you look. Im measuing a D, but look a large C. If you want to measure/fit into a C cup then I think 200 or 260 is oKay. If you want to look a C cup then I woua see if your surgeon can go closer to 300. Accept my FR and you can view my piccies. I like Blake Lively's too but I think she would be much taller and heavier than you or I, so 350 or 400 on her might be the equivalent of 250 or 300 on a smaller girl. Hope that makes sense.
  11. yes, like you said just have to wait until all the swelling is gone, they have dropped and fluffed, all that sort of thing before judging. I think you will find yourself much happier once you can et off all the compression garments! I'm still being patient too hoping mine come a little closer together in the middle and not look so big!
  12. unless you want smaller than mine, I would go the 325 if I were you. I have pre-op pics in my album that shows my starting breast tissue. Would you say youre a small A, mid, or large? That might help? I'm also an 8 band, 11.5cm BWD, so that makes a smaller size look larger on me.
  13. I've just had a look at your wish boobies, user Gkerr - she loosk like she had a decent amount of tissue to begin with, cup size B she states. If you have quite a bit less tissue than her then 325cc is probably good size? Its so hard to figure out how much you need to get the look you want! I have 225/275cc and ended up bigger than what I thought! Still hoping they come down a bit. I knew my own breast tissue would add to the size, but I didnt realise just how much. Mine do look larger in real life than they do in photos. I'm probably in the minority here but I though the sizers were not really that helpful.. In sayng all this, I dont think 325 is too big. Its a good, natural size. I wanted the small look.
  14. This is my surgeons preferred post op bra, and I bought it at Chez Ma Belle in Geelong. I love it, it's very supportive and I find it relatively easy to hide under clothes. I haven't tried it yet, but you can also cross the straps at the back. I bought a second one from bodyment online for when I wash my original one
  15. I used to wear the Showtime style which was very padded. the Incredible is also awesome, I think the one you're talking about is the front close version of the Incredible. I'll be getting that one once I'm all cleared for wired bras and have been measure properly.
