Should the sports bra be tight or loose? 5 days post op? (Photo)

Some surgeons do not even use post-op bras. You should ask your surgeon what he prefers. Best of luck.
Light compression and support are good postoperatively, but if the bra is very tight that could be uncomfortable and impact blood supply to the healing breasts. At this point, you are not wearing your support during heavy exercise, so the bra probably doesn't need to be that tight.
