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?

When to bra shop following breast augmentation
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.

Sounds like you are progressing well after your breast augmentation. congratulations. I generally clear my patients to go shopping 4-6 weeks after their surgery. But please check with your PS for his/her recommendations.
Best of luck.
Buy New Bras In These Stages
The patient can return to a wired bra (and buy new ones) once the incision has healed. This is typically at 4 to 6 weeks. By this time, the patient will have had their one-month follow up, so they can confirm with their doctor.
By 4 to 6 weeks, the majority of swelling will have decreased as well.
You should have your final result at about 3 to 6 months after the procedure. So don't spend your entire bra budget at week 4.
Ready to shop!
Hello Best Money Ever Spent (Great User Name!), You can shop now, I just wouldn't make any La Perla/Agent Provocateur type investments quite yet. You still have another few months they may change and even if your breast size stays the same, how your bras fit may vary. Underwires are usually okay after a month, but you must heed your surgeon's direction on that. Recommendations are based on specifics related to your case, they may have their reasons for keeping you in a sports bra this long. Talk to them, then go shopping!
