How to enhance your breasts once your implants are gone - bras for smaller breasts

  • 2 years ago

For those of you concerned about your appearance after breast implant removal (and who isn't?), here are some interesting links I found with nice looking "fake breasts" for sale.

Nearly You: A whole shop tailored to breast prosthesis and enhancers.

Inflatable bra pad inserts from Amazon.

Push up pads from Love My Bubbles.

Victoria's Secret Miraculous push up bra, which increases your breast size by 2 cups.

And, the Braza Dolly Wedge inserts!

For ladies in the UK, check out Silicone Sally!

As recommended by a RealSelf member, the Handful bra is supposed to be a great, comfy sports bra that won't completely flatten you out.

The Itty Bitty bra doesn't necessarily make your girls look bigger, but it might fit your smaller proportions better than other bras on the market.

Not cheap, but The Little Bra Company bras look cute.

I've heard some good things about the Voda Swim Suit. Check it out.

Hope these ideas help!

Thanks for this. I too have been shopping for bras, found a good one which I ordered on line from VS. It is a no wire padded one that hides the fact that I had my implants removed Like everyone else, I do not want anyone to notice that I have gone from 34 dd to little boobies. Bye bye implants. Had them for 29 years.

Hey Pink, do you have a link to that bra?

This flow of conversation is just what I seemed to need at the moment. Two weeks post op and having a lot of emotion. Had implants for quite a while-- 38 years! Agree that there will most likely be dents where implants were. More noticeable with how old the implants were, I think. Have yet to shop for bras, except the surgical---but all of you seem to. Be oping so well and realistically with the changes we are now facing, that it gives me hope.

I'm glad it helps. I know this can be an emotional process.

I agree with you Kathie. I didnt feel it was anyone business that I had surgery and I didnt want there to be such a drastic change. My implants werent very large anyways so a bra with some padding has been a good transition for me. I dont think we should be judging anyone who may want to add some padding during this difficult emotional transition. For someone like myself who had implants for over a decade it has been a little easier for me to adjust to my new size. Just as we wear other certain types of clothing to enhance certain areas there is nothing wrong with wearing a bra that makes you feel good and if that means it has some padding so be it.

For me, the explanting means accepting my bust. Don't assume all women want to have large breasts. You remind me of a store..selling a cup or be cup bras with way more padding assuming little ones want to be big. I actually can't wait to be braless darling. I wish you didn't feel the need to big bigger or have a boost. Just be you or don't explant!

These posts make me sick. Im only 21 yet I feel im the right on this board. Praying that all of you gain acceptance and stop putting yourself down with padding. You aren't just disrespecting yourself, but others. Maybe if all you didn't wear padded crap, you'd see more of yourselves walking around! Stop shaming your little ones. Gosh this board made me cry!! Praying for you all

I find this comment offensive. To each his own. Or her own. I myself just cannot afford to go out and buy a new wardrobe so a padded bra will be included for those work type outfits. And some of us don't want to tell the whole world: hey guess what I had implants and now I don't. When I first had them done, 35 years ago the selection of bras and bathing suits was crap for flat chested women. I did it for me, not anyone else. Do I have regrets sure, would I do it again, no.

I am looking forward or that too but I still have a wardrobe of clothes that have to be filled in. I don't mind those nearest and dearest to see the real me. But I don't want to stand up in my Tai Chi class and say guess what I did! A sports bra with a little padding will ease the way. I am going from a D/DD to A or AA.

Kathie, I couldn't have said it better myself. I plan to have mine out and feel as you do. I don't want to look like I had anything done. It can be a gradual change. And yes, clothing for flat chested women has drastically improved. At 21 I encourage Sirenamirena to embrace and love you as you are. For those of us who have made decisions earlier in life that we now want to change we come to this forum for support and feedback, not criticism and judgment. Padded bras, swimsuits, thank heavens for a little shape.Each woman has a right to her own decisions without this negative input. Thanks Kathie.

I find this offensive & just as bad as the implant itself..anyone actually care to show off small boobies and nothing fake??

I agree totally. I found and ordered this bra that has a AA/A bra on Amazon. It's called the Zee bra and it looks so comfortable and the reviews are great. It does comes with two pads on each side. So IF you want a little you can wear them or if not you don't. But I thought if I wear a T-shirt I might want to wear one pad just so my nipples don't show. I can't wait to get it since I really have nothing now I like. I went and bought two bras by Warner with an A cup that I don't even fill out and the lady said that won't hurt anything and you can always wear a bra pad that will push up and also fill out the cup. They're going back to be returned, I want to just be myself, period!

That's great, too, but not for everyone all the time!

I guess it depends on your age, at 62 comfort is the most important thing to me. I was flat before getting implants which was when I was in my 50's and getting implants was the biggest mistake of my life, no actually going and having bigger ones put in was the biggest! To each his own!

I love the "Handful Bra"!!! I was sold by the video that shows how I can store my phone and water bottle in it (among other essentials ;O)). LOL I'm 6 weeks post op and I'm still very tender and overprotective of the girls. So wearing these bra, after ditching the bra recommended by my doctor for healing, is wonderful for transitioning from tight fitting to regular bras. And I find that it protects the girls from accidental rubbing against when holden a file, book, my purse, etc. :O) I'm a klutz, these bra is a must for me.

I'm waiting to order one but they are in the process of moving their manufacturing to the US and are out of almost all the sizes, especially the smalls which is the size I need. I think it will be the middle of October before they have any. My sister has one and it is her favorite bra. But now she is going to go and buy a real bra, of course she had the internal lift so she has more than I do.

Bebe, how do the sizes run? Are they true to size?

My handful bra is true to size!

Thanks Angie, I loved the site video! The band on my current bra keeps riding up, I think I'm losing weight, so when it's time to switch, a handful for sure!

I like the ones that will fit my smaller breasts, myself. I don't want to put something to put in there to look big again. The swim suit sounds like a good idea, that is one thing I did have a big problem with when I was barely an A. I'll have to check out Voda. Thanks for all the work Angiemcc!

You are very welcome! It was fun and I'm happy to add other suggestions to the list.

One question I have is about size. Right after surgery I am planning to have 2-3 padded sports bras for comfort and healing. This is before I would get measured by a professional in a nordstorm/macy's/whatever...so how will I know what size to get the sports bra in? My surgeon and the office assistant both said I will probably end up a C (was originally a B went to a DD)...so others who have had explant, how did you know what size to buy?

Jodee bra with built in form works great. They run big so a AA cup is just right
