This is one of the few post surgery bras that comes in a cupsized sizing. I had a breast reduction surgery 2 weeks ago starting from 34 K (uk) and this is one of the best post op bras I have. I bought a couple of cheap $20 Front closing bras that had S-M-L sizing , but given that my after size (around 34FF/G ) is as big as most people before breast eduction size, those just do not cut it for me. My before surgery underbust was 33" and I read that there will be a lot of swelling , including the underbust, so I choose to order the 38 band , which was a good call. A took off my surgical binder 2 days after surgery, and at the time my underbust was almost 37". Now, 2 weeks post op and my underbust is still 35" and things are very tender, so any band smaller than this would be uncomfortable. My I over use is about 42" now, so I am 36:6 in bratabase sizing, and the 38DD is a good fit.
The bra has an 9 hooks front closure that has two columns so you can adjust it as your swelling goes down. Since the swelling can change couple of inches of your circumference in the initial weeks , this is a godsend feature.
The strap is similarly constructed as my Panache sports bra, it is wide and padded on the top of the shoulder, and has an adjustable part is at the back . The back of the bra is mesh for breathable and the cup material is made of coolmax technology that is moisture wicking that used in high end sportswear. Actually the whole construction of the cups reminde me of my panache sports bras, so I will able to use this as a sports bra later on.
The bra is much more supportive than other post op bras as it has side support. This is important to me, because I did not had side lipo, and my after surgery breast look very east west now . The side support gently pushes the breast forward, which helps to move the migrated side tissue back to where it's belong the front of the chest .
It only comes in black and white , and not much of a looker , but given it is a post of bra asthetics is not the main point,
