Breast Matters: What is an Augmentation Bra?

Every woman has a drawer full of bras for everyday wear and special occasions. Yet, one of the most important bras a woman will ever own is the one which will support her following a breast augmeantation. Finding the proper breast surgery support bra is essential to good breast health following any type of breast-related medical procedure.

A Bra for Comfort and Healing

After breast augmeantation surgery, it is critical that women have a bra that offers comfort and support. Doctors are quick to caution patients about going back to their frilly bras too soon after surgery, as wearing a bra without adequate support could actually cause damage and hinder healing. Typically, a six week recovery period where a special bra is used is the prescribed amount of time to ensure breast safety.

The Basics of Augmeantation Bras

Augmeantation bras usually comprises of an athletic bra design rather than the traditional cup design most woman use for everyday wear. Bras that consist of soft, breathable materials, such as cotton or a cotton-spandex mix, are often the best choice following surgery. Bras which have an under wire are strongly advised against because of the restriction caused by the wire can irritate or injure tender breasts. Since support and lifting are important, women should look for a bra which has a soft support band which stretches the body of the bra.

Forward Thinking

It is beneficial to shop for a bra which has front clasps. During recovery time, there may be soreness which will make extra movemeants painful. A front-clasping bra will minimize the need to make taxing movemeants in order to take off your bra for cleaning or for letting your skin breathe.

Plan Ahead

It is always a good idea to purchase a bra prior to your surgery date that way you have the bra ready and waiting for you following surgery. The last thing you will want to worry about in your post-surgery state will be going out shopping for a new bra. There are some important considerations to make while shopping for your breast surgery support bra which might not be obvious. Don’t buy a bra that fits you prior to surgery, always buy a half size or full size up. If you are having your breasts enlarged, purchase a recovery bra that is a half size or full size up from your post-surgery cup size. This is because following your augmeantation or surgery, there is due to be some swelling which will affect your cup size. Additionally, the surgeon will wrap your chest in thick bandages following surgery. These bandages will add bulk and require you to have extra room inside your bra.

Get the Right Start with the Right Bra

Every woman deserves a bra which offers maximum comfort following a breast augmeantation. Having a proper recovery bra is the first step to a smooth healing process.
