Need plus size no-wire bra recommendations (surgery)

I'm a 38H/38I (38K US) and I need some recommendations for a comfortable plus size no-wire bra that has some support. It doesn't have to be quite as supportive as a regular wear-to-work bra or workout bra as I'm mostly going to wear it at home while I recuperate from laparoscopic surgery. I want something that would be comfortable for sleeping and supportive enough that if I have to run to the store, my boobs aren't dropping to the floor. I don't want to spend a lot on the bra if I can help it.

A lot of inexpensive no wire bras are made for women with a smaller chest size, so I'm not quite sure where to look. It's also hard sometimes figuring out sizing as it's not always clear if a brand is using US or UK sizing. I could probably get a Lane Bryant/Cacique no wire bra in a pinch, but I'd rather not pay $45 for the bra if there's a less expensive option.

If anyone has some recommendations, please share!

  • My recommendation costs more than that, sorry. Just bought myself a 30I - Decent Exposures ยป Original Un-bra Racer Back (120) for the first time in a few years. love it so much! But not cheap

  • This store specializes in post surgery garments:

    I wear their sternum bras for sleeping. (To deter the chest wrinkles from side sleeping.) There's a few bras on the site, but also other post surgery items that may come in handy for speeding your recovery & lessen the pain.
