When should I use the PI special compression bra?
- Ideal for use during the first phase of post-operative care after breast surgery (augmentation, reduction, mammoplasty, breast reconstruction or mastopexy)
- A worldwide bestseller among bras of LIPOELASTIC brand
- Seamless cotton post-operative compression bra designed for all types of breast surgeries
- The bra features a wide rubber and elastane band under the bust preventing the bra from chafing or rolling up in any way. The band is designed to be so soft that it appears as a continuation of the bra itself and thus, does not interfere with scar tissue
- A higher décolletage covers the entire chest; after augmentation (breast enlargement using implants) it stabilizes the position of the implant and helps it to cling to the breast tissue, exactly as the surgeon demands
Design of cups

- The cups are reinforced with double lined fabric for optimal compression in key areas

How to measure and determine the proper size of the LIPOELASTIC® post-operative bra?
How to put on the post-operative LIPOELASTIC® bra featuring a front zipper properly?
1. Before you start, remove all your clothes except for underwear so that the measurement is not distorted – it is the only way to get the most accurate results. Also, it is important to stand upright, have a loose belly and breathe naturally.
2. When the measurements are taken, the measuring tape must be in a horizontal position. The tape must not point downwards or upwards so as not to distort the measurements.
3. When taking measurements, do not tighten the tape around your body, it must touch the body, but must not be too tight or too loose.
4. Write all measurements on paper and re-measure again for accuracy.
Please, measure yourself couple of times to be sure of your sizing in each body area. Take note of your measurements pre-surgery as this can be referred to later, to check the healing progress and to indicate where the post-surgery Oedema is moving to.
Do you fall in between sizes?
For most women, hips are the widest body part. If your hips fall into a higher size category than your waist, you should always choose the size that is applicable to your hips. If on the other hand, your hip measurements fall into a smaller size than your waist measurement (prior to a surgery), then you would go down a size in the waist to reflect the hip measurements.
Please consult the sizing charts if in any doubt.
