There is no standard in plastic surgery for what bra patients wear post operation. It would be best to call your plastic surgeon and ask him directly what he recommends you to wear over the next three months. That being said most patients continue to use the surgical bra given to them after the surgery for the first month (if they like), while switching over to a soft - not too tight yet supportive - sports bra. But some patients switch to sports bras as soon as several days post-op if that is what they like. Typically the post-surgical bra will provide more support, but a sports bra gives more elasticity. To answer your question: Yes. Patients typically pick their own sports bra that is most comfortable for them. Ask your plastic surgeons opinion during the next post-op consultation.
