I wondered about surgical bras too. The hospital provided me a bra after the surgery.

My doctor recommended the inexpensive Hanes sports bras (they come in a 2-pack for about $9.99)with the hooks in the front. Its sized based on your width ..32,34 and cup size. I'm now a D-cup and they worked fine for me. Also, Hanes has the "comfort bra" same design without the racer back....for about $8.99 each...better for wearing street clothes.

I'm seven weeks out and I now wear wirefee bras to work....but change into these when I get home. I plan to keep a bra on always for 6months....they are great to sleep in.

Not sure how you know size. My consultant told me what size Z bras I would need for the 3 months after the operation. I am a 36HH and she has told me 38 D for the Z bras, the 38 is so that any gauze padding and swelling does not make it tight.

She also said that my size would continue to change for the first 5-6 months. Not sure what to end as but think it will be around 36C ish.

Z Bras you can get on line. Their main benefit, according to my surgeon is the band underneath that supports and does not move/rub any bruising.

PS These are all UK sizes so prob need a converter!
