It is really a tough call. If you can, talk it over with your doctor. My doctor said he didn't know. I measure my width and then deducted one letter size. For example, I was wearing 42C - so I went with 42 B cup. My first bra was too... READ COMMENT

I've got to check that out - the infrared sauna. I had no compression other than my sports bras. I wore them for 4 weeks. But I also had drains for nearly two weeks. Isn't it amazing how different the docs are? READ COMMENT
