Ladies who has an anchor lift...best post op bra?

Alrighty ladies who had an anchor lift and aug, which bra worked best for you in the post operative period? I know the incision hurts some, so what bra was your favorite? I bought a fruit of the loom front closure no wire bra after reading the augmentation only ladies suggested.

The very best bra for me has been a CW-X Xtempo front closure support bra.
The band around doesn't hurt the bottom of my incisions and it hold the new boobies in the right spots!

I ordered a champion zipper front closure that I'm waiting on.

I can tell you to steer clear of the under armour protégée. The seams inside are killer! It's like they trap my skin against the implant -- talk about uncomfortable. And my ps recommended it.

I'm glad you posted this question. I just blindly followed my ps on bra advice -- so dumb.

I had an amazing (or so I thought) post surgical bra from Marena with a 2"band - but the pressure from the band caused my incisions to open up at the weak T junction.

I now use a Lululemon sports bra (I'm 6 weeks post op) with a 1/2" band that fits 1" BELOW my incisions!!!

Sun, which lululemon did you go with? Just the all sports bra or another version? The tata tamer looks comfy. Boobie bracer does too!

I'm so sorry to hear about the split in your incision. Did you do something too strenuous or did it just happen strictly due to the band on your other bra (if you don't mind my asking).

I only ask because my incisions are very sore from lifting my 23 lb 16 month old who is sick I'm pretty sure I've messed up.

Looking for more suggestions on this. The few times I have seen what PS recommends for after garments, I always seem to see better options, so this is one I want to really look into.
I will be getting my BL/BA REVISION in the fall.

I used this for the first few weeks. I normally have a 32 band but needed 38 in this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/13997192?w...392470&veh=sem

Then I bought some Genie Bras http://www.geniebra.com/?gclid=CMbr6...FUwV7Aod-WoASA

Large or extra large

I still wear both at night!

I used champion and it worked perfectly. Just. Fought two sizes just just in case then returned the one that didn't fit. I returned the smaller one.

This is what I keep going back too, is very comfy, and I love the front closure!

I used my surgical bra the most over the first few days except when I had to wash it. I really like Under Armour's Seamless Advantage, (it's made for low impact exercise like yoga/Pilates and has compression), now for days and I sleep in my surgical bc I feel it keeps them "on my chest" best when I'm on my back. The UA bra can be stepped into and pulled up also so that helps

For the first few days I wore a front-close Fruit of the Loom sports bra, but by day 3 or 4 I started wearing my Genie bras, and have been wearing them for close to 6 weeks now. Very comfortable and no pressure on my incisions! FYI, they run really small. Per the size chart, I was supposed to be a small, but ended up with a large.

Thanks ladies for your input!
I don't have my lift until December, but want to follow along! Can never have enough research!

My favorite was a front close sports bra by MTA from Meijer. Nothing super special about it- didnt really have any issue with any bra particularl bothering the incision line though.

A few weeks post op I started wearing the Under Armor seamless plunge sports bra (low impact). I still wear it daily now and it's really comfy to sleep in. I do not wear it for any type of exercise, even walking.

I know this post is old, but wanted to ask since I'm looking for a bra - do you find this to be supportive enough for daytime wear?

Old question, soorry! I do wear these during daytime just not if I'm going to do any real fast walking. The only issue is the straps are cut high on the neck so you can't wear anything with an open neck without the straps showing. Hope that makes sense.
