Bra recommendations for breast augmentation patientsImmediately following breast augmentation, fashion is not important. You will be outfitted in a surgical-type garment that helps control swelling and supports your healing breast tissues. It might not be cute, but it is required. After two weeks, Dr. Sanders will clear you to switch to a normal bra. At this point, let shopping commence!

If you feel a little lost looking for bras to fit your newly improved breasts, take the recommendations of other women that have already had their breasts augmented. Here are a few tried-and-true bras:

Victoria’s Secret VSX

The Victoria’s Secret VSX sports bra is a very popular option among women that have had breast augmentation. These bras have good elasticity and a front-closure with a zipper for easy changing. They provide great support to the breasts after surgical enhancement. The only downside is that they can be pricey; to save some money, check out a VS outlet or shop during the Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale.

Genie Bra

The Genie Bra is a best-selling seamless bra with a soft, wireless design — perfect for breasts that may still feel a little tender. Available in a wide range of colors and fits, the Genie Bra can be found on Amazon, or at Wal-Mart or Bed, Bath and Beyond locations (in the “As-Seen-On-TV” section).

Champion Sports Bras

Available at Target, Champion sports bras are another favorite among breast augmentation patients. They offer light to medium support and are inexpensively priced so you can pick up a few different colors and designs to suit every mood.

Under Armour

Under Armour sports bras (found at most sporting goods stores) are great for post-op patients. They fit comfortably, are made from soft and durable material and flatter nearly every silhouette. Lots of women continue to wear them to the gym long after they have finished healing from surgery.


Many women consider the Coobie to be the trifecta of bras: comfortable, supportive and inexpensive. Some of the Coobie designs are trimmed with lace and can act as a camisole when worn under a shirt.
