    Default Ladies, I'm burning my bra! :)

    I am 3 months post op and I'm still having a lot of pain wearing my stupid bra. Has anybody else experienced being overly sensitive right between your boobs and is this normal?

    I didn’t have any bra pain issues.

    I contacted my Bari Team about any/all pain I experienced.

    I have seen other members post about wearing a “soft” bra.

    I finally went to a high-end bra store to get fitted properly, once my weight stabilized.

    In the meantime...burn away ;-)

    I didn't any issues with my boobs (other then them disappearing). Always a good idea to let the doc know when your experiencing any type of pain.

    Default Re: Ladies, I'm burning my bra! :)

    I only had sport bras for the first 1,5 year.
    Now I can't find a good bra, that fits properly.
    I have no boobs left whatsoever and without bra is really uncomfortable.
    I have found the "bralettes", they are the most pleasant right now.

    Cyndi? What is the brand you are wearing?
    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    Warner’s and Pink. I went to Bali, then Victoria’s Secret.

    What’s a “bralette” and where can I see one?

    Thank you!
    Victoria's Secret I know, I'll look up a store here.
    The other one I am not familiar with, no idea if they have them here in Europe.

    According to google: A bralette is a bra without wires or molded cups.
    Bralettes are often worn for style and comfort. Most bralettes are wire-free and lightly padded. They provide a light layer of coverage and are a comfortable alternate option to bras. Bralette is basically meant more for shape than support.

    They come in really cute and sexy styles:

    Thanks Dutchie!

    I’ll check them out. I go braless around the house. These may be a better alternative ;-)

    Hahaha, I only wear one now when I totally have to. I do wear one of the 'soft type' bralettes and only force myself to wear my good ones when I'm going out. I am going for a good fitting when I'm closer to goal weight.

    I'm going to call my Dr. Monday, I'm afraid I might have an issue there at that area. A hernia maybe?

    Braless is not always a pleasant option for me, because with warm weather it is really sweaty with my sagging, empty, sad little teabags...
    But I am not complaining.

    I would contact my surgical team, that doesn't seem normal, but maybe it is, I don't know!

    Costco sells about 3 different types of soft bras in 2 or 3 packs, sort of like super soft light sports bras. Maybe that would help.

    I don't know how many new bras I got since January 2016, but probably 40 or 50!! between the size changing, issues with wires...tried everything...sport bra, no wire, soft wire, bralette (not enough support)...my size is changing all the time, I think it's mainly an hormonal issue.

    Got three new last week, perfect size when tried on, but after washing and wearing one two hours, an other one three hours, same story again...can't stand it...so annoying and a waste of money!!

    But like Cindy, at home I don't wear a bra, I just wear a sport top, gives enough support for light cleaning, but not enough to be worn outside...

    One of my little incisions was between my boobs and the bra would irritate it quite a bit. It does get better. My issue was mostly the bra rubbing the incision.
