♡ Choosing the right postoperative bra
1. POSTOPERATIVE BRA IS NOT AN UNDERWEAR
First, you have to realize that postoperative bra is not an underwear. It’s a bandage to fix inserted implants in place and it must have compression properties. Only the right compression for a period of 12 weeks assures you perfect results.
2. WIDE SHOULDER STRAPS ARE THE ELEMENTS
You must realize that you’ll carry an extra weight of 700-1000g on your chest straight after the operation. And so it’s important to think of even a slight detail like correct straps. Only then you will avoid straps digging into your shoulders and prevent red marks and swelling. Time for sexy underwear will come!
3. FRONT OR BACK FASTENING?
Bear in mind that your movements will be limited straight after operation and your surgeon will recommend not lifting your arms at all. Postoperative bra should have front fastening in the middle so you can reach it easily. The bra will become your best friend for few weeks, even at night. Surgeons recommend sleeping on your back and so the back fastening would be uncomfortable.
5. IMPORTANCE OF MATERIAL
Don’t forget that postoperative bra will be in contact with operated area and wounds. Do care about the material choice. Look out for comfort as well as tested materials. Safe products carry OEKO-TEX certification, which is accredited by independent institute in Hohenstein in Germany. That guarantees all materials used for compression garments are safe and without any harmful substances.
Take your time to pick the right bra. It’s ok to try several types of bras. Every woman is a different shape and proportion, and so different bras fit to different women.
