Pain from underwire after BA

Recommended Posts

I'm seven weeks post op and a week ago I got the all clear to wear normal bras. I bought three, a sports bra without underwire that I can wear no worries and two bras with underwire that leave me in agony. The pain isn't my breast as much as underneath the breast and at the side. I was sized as a 10dd but I'm thinking maybe going up a size (band? Cup?) may help. Or maybe some people need to wait longer to feel comfortable? I have a very boney chest and it is the boney bits that hurt like crazy after wearing a bra.

Anyone else finding regular bras uncomfortable and what do you suggest?

I'm in the same boat and I'm 6 months post op. The underwire digs in to my ribs &/or between my boobs something horrid, no matter the brand. 

I've ditched the underwire indefinitely but it's proving quite difficult to find wirefree bras in larger cup/smaller back sizes. 

You might feel better in underwire a few months down the track.
