When it comes to aftercare I have a lot of experiences to share. When I first got my implants (32d, silicone) I thought a great bra was all the support I needed. But recently I have had a lot of pain when lying on my front, which have stopped me from sleeping on my front, sun baking, you name it. I have recently discovered Mammagard, and cos I think there is lots of women out there with the same problem I thought I'd share it. Ask you health practitioner next time you're in and check out www.mammagard.com for more info.

This is interesting. I will have to check the website out at home. I've noticed (10 weeks post op) that they are really different to lay on. I am now 38ddd with silicone.

They look great but those things are way too expensive for me.

I know everyone wants to wear Victorias Secret bras... shoot I was one of them when I got my girls. However I can say that I now prefer bras from Soma Intimates. I went in today and tried on all the bras in 38ddd's and fell in complete love with all of them. I felt like the associate gave me 100% of her time and not cashing every sale like at VS. I will never buy from VS again. I bought 3 new bras today and I'm completely love each one of them. Will post pictures soon.

The nurse at Hedden Plastic Surgery recommended Danskin sports bras from Walmart. They have some that zip up and some that hook in the front. It's the first one I wore after surgery and still wear them for sleeping and that's been 2.5 months. The band is very comfortable. They were even comfortable on my incisions which were in the crease

I would love to try one of those, but I am a 34C and they don't seem to make the ones I like in that size :(

Hey girls, see my profile, I got the best posr surgical bra and it is really comfortable. They sell it in three different colors, so you can wear it underneath light clothing and it actually looks cute. Compared to the other ones given by some PS.

It really is the prettiest post surgical bra I've seen.

I bought 2 bras from Soma a few weeks after I was released to wear regular supportive bras, please see my story to understand. I am 5 weeks post op today and these are the best bras I have for during the day. I'm so comfortable and really don't even realize I have it on. The bra is has no padding and no underwires. I was told by the lady at the store that this bra is purchsed by a lot of breast augmentation patients once they are released from their doctors to wear regular bras. It's called the Embraceable Wirefree Unlined Bra. And let me tell you since I started wearing this bra a week ago or so, i haven't been more comfotable. I still sleep in a sports bra but during the day....this is my pick. Since I started wearing this bra, it seems that all of my nipple sensitivity has gone away. It's amazing how well this bra fits.

Right on the money! I bought that same bra in 3 colors so I can wear to work. I had surgery May 23rd, I'm only 2 weeks post op, but I truly did not want to wear a sports bra to work as it will show over my clothes. That bra is seemless, I forget I even have it on. However, I also still sleep in a sports bra and it is very uncomfortable. Any sports bra you may recommend. I seriously don't sleep very well.

I am just sleeping in a regular sports bra, nothing fancy, just plain and simple. Something to keep the girls in. My doctor also told me to I can sleep in cami's as long as they have the built in bra. I've tried sleeping in the bras they gave after surgery but they are very uncomfortable now. I think the sports bras I'm sleeping in came from either Sears or Academy. They are the ones that I use to workout out in but now I will need something a little more supportive. Good luck in finding something comfortable to sleep in, it's hard to get accustomed to them.

heart&core makes high-impact support, plush sports bras and post-surgical bras that don't have underwire. They are in your bra size too so they fit and are super comfortable.

You can order really comfortable, supportive underwire-free sports bras and post-surgical bras from heart&core in actual bras sizes so they fit.

I found a great bra from Tonserio! It was a bra designed for augmented breasts. Breast Augmentation Bras The owner designed the bra because she couldn't find anything good for it. None of the bras have underwires and they are very comfortable to me!

I got the "Playtex Zip Zip Hooray Front Closure Bra" off of Amazon for $19!! I LOVE it!! It's so soft and comfy, and comes down low enough so it's not bothering my incisions. After reading the reviews on it I did notice they run kinda big so I got a Small and glad I did. Because at 8 days postop I'm just now filling out the cups. But it's super easy to get on and off with the zipper in the front, I even sleep in it. I love it!!

I just ordered one yesterday...ive got no idea how big ill be, but ordered a small- hope it works!

You should be ok. I just started to fill the cups out completely at almost one month post op and now it fits perfectly. It seems a little big to me for a Small, and it's not the most stylish, lol, but it does the job. Lol! And it is really soft so it didn't irritate the girls. And it came down down past my incisions so it didn't bother them either. It's def worth the $19, and prob more comfy than the more expensive ones. GOOD LUCK!!

Thanks so much! I think I'm more nervous about them putting me to sleep than the pain afterwards :(
