Breast Explant Post Surgery Bra?

Looking for recommendations for bra brands or types for post surgery. I don't know if I will be going home wearing a post-op bra of any type or just bandages. (I've sent a message to the doc asking that question.)  I've searched this forum or discussions about bras and the only recommendation I found was for a $120 bra - that is a bit steep!  I know I need a bra that will fit tight and provide compression. I assume pulling a sports bra over head will be difficult for a week or longer. Ideas? What did you do?  Thanks in advance.

I ended up purchasing different size sports bras from JC Penny's. That was a good move because I didn't know what size to wear. One fit perfect (has a zipper on the front!), so I will take the others back.

I have been asked to wear the Marena compression bra for 6 weeks following my surgery. They are about $50 in Vancouver.

My dr wanted me in a compression bra. I'm guessing if you have crease incisions they won't want you in anything with an underwire. I forget what I'm wearing, but it was about $35 and does its job at keeping me squished flat :P (One more week!) I found it online

GREAT question! You might want to check out this thread. It has to do with enhancing your breasts but there's some other useful info in comments. I wonder if the Handful Bra would work. That's a really really good supportive bra (though it goes on over your head).
