I am 4 1/2 weeks out from surgery and loving my new boobs!!! I am sooo tired of these sports bras though and wondering how long before I should start buying new bras? They look like they are dropping quite well, one more so than the other but that is normal. I know that they say could have swelling for several months but surely I am not expected to wear these silly sports bras forvever!!! 475cc Saline under the muscle is what I got, increased me from 32B to 34DD (sized today)
How Long Should I Wait to Buy New Bras After Breast Implants?

Shopping for bra after breast augmentation
Every one reacts differently. As a rule, 4-6 weeks should be enough time. I do tell my breast augmentation patients to just buy a few bras at week 4-6 and get more after a few more weeks just in case if the breast size changed again.
And finally, don't forget to donate your old bras to the needy. Enjoy your new breasts in good health.

Bra Usage Following Breast Augmentation
It’s important to realize that the decision to use a sports bra following surgery depends on multiple factors.

After breast augmentation weight 2 by new bras until the implants have dropped into their final position
Thank you for your question. Following breast augmentation implants can take 6-12 weeks to reach their final resting position. Buying a new bra is difficult because of the changing position of the implants during the first 6 or so weeks after breast augmentation. If possible I would wait to spend significant money on new bras until your breasts have moved down into a normal position.
Getting out of the sports bra
Generally speaking, patients should wear the sports bra 4-6 weeks after surgery. You're correct that you still may have swelling at that time, but it is often fine to switch to a regular bra. I encourage you to first check with your surgeon as he/she will be able to give advice on what is best for your particular situation.
