I suggest 4-6 weeks before getting new bras. Don't get too many as your breasts will settle over the next 3-4 months so expect changes in the way they settle into the cups.

Bra shopping after an augmentation
Best to wait 4 - 6 weeks before you go shopping for a new bra. This will give enough time for the swelling to subside.

I recommend at least 4-6 weeks. To get a good measurement, the breasts need to drop to their final position and assume their final shape. Sometimes this can take 3-6 months.

You might want to wait about 2-3 months after breast augmentation. At this point, the majority of swelling should have subsided.
Measuring for a bra
I usually recommend that my patients wait 4-6 weeks before being measured for a bra. Those women whose implants are on top of the muscle will be settled more quickly than those under the muscle. You still can be measured prior to 4 weeks, but the bra may not fit well early on.
