Size of compression bra after surgery

Recommended Posts

So I had my surgery yesterday and I'm very happy with results so far but when I got fitted for a surgical bra I was not the size I was expecting.. I got fitted into a B but she said I'd prob end up a C. I was hoping after getting 450cc id at least get to a D, is there any hope of this, are surgical bras just made bigger then usual bras or am I only going to be a b/c.. anyone start off with smaller sized surgical bra then ended up a bigger cup size later?

Hey hun, don't worry about the post-surgery bra or it's size. You have only just had your surgery and you won't really begin to know your final size until at least 6 weeks post-op. Even then it's only the start of the D & F process and they will continue to change for the next few months. Very likely you will get to a D. For an example, pre-surgery I was an AA cup; two weeks later I went bra shopping (got over excited and started way too soon) and I was a C cup. By the 6 week mark I was a DD which is where I still am at.

Early days, try not to worry, just focus on your recovery and take it easy. xo

Hi @simply_me don’t be discouraged by the sizing of the post surgery “amoena” bra which I assume is the same brand I have.  When the bra lady came to fit she told me the sizing is completely different to normal bra size.  My post op bra is a 12B and she said in a normal bra it would be equivalent to an 8D or 10C.

I definitely don’t have a D cup at 5 weeks post op and fit into a 10C.  Very happy with a C cup and now just crossing fingers for some cleavage in the drop and fluff 🤞

This is interesting! I’m in some American compression bra- says 36d on it- nurse says too that don’t really worry about the size. Mine has 4 rows of hooks to bring in as swelling goes down. If anything I’m hoping mine go a bit smaller! My PS did warn me that it was a fine line between the size I probably wanted and “filling “ the envelope! I didnt want mine over-stuffed 🤣
