Hi Kimmers and everyone, Sorry if this seems like a silly question! How do you know what type of bra to buy for wearing post op?  Do you choose your rib cage size eg size 12 (34 inches) and then decide what cup size you are going to be (after speaking to your surgeon)? If the surgeon decides on approximately a D cup, do you buy a size larger to accomodate the swollen breast tissue? Is it better to purchase a compression support bra or just a support bra? Are there any brands of support bra you would recommend and if so, may I have the name of the website I can purchase from? Last of all, should I buy them before the op? Thank you
