All breast surgeries are stressful, but breast revision surgery can be incredibly taxing. Not only have you faced the original surgery that you needed to get better, but now you’re facing correcting issues that appeared after your healing process was completed.
When you’re facing making preparations for revision surgery, you should consider wearing a compression bra after your surgery. It can be tempting to wear a sports bra instead, but wearing a compression bra after a breast augmentation surgery supports the healing process, and most plastic surgeons will recommend you do so.
Post-surgical bras have unique designs that feature super-soft materials and compression that sports bras just don’t have.
Why Compression Bras?
Wearing the right post-surgery bra from A Fitting Experience Mastectomy Shoppe to support your natural breast tissue and new breast implants is a great way to aid your recovery.
The correct surgical bra for you will feature front closures, so it’s easy to put on and take off while also allowing for easy and frequent dressing changes. The adjustable straps give your breasts the support you need and are available in different cup sizes.
They’re very comfortable to wear, but you’ll want the comfiest post-surgical bra you can find. It should be functional, easy to use, and offer gentle compression to hold your bandages in place.

Since patient comfort is a top priority following surgery, the JOBST Surgical Vest takes your post-surgical comfort and satisfaction into consideration with its design. This terrific bra features a Velcro hook and eye closure in the front and a break-resistant nylon zipper that makes for easy adjustments when you need them.
It helps to manage post-operative swelling and holds your surgical implants in place while your tissue heals. It’s easy to wash and dry with other clothing, and it’s available both with and without cups. If you struggle with a latex allergy, no worries: this bra is completely latex-free. It reduces the need for surgical dressings while allowing easy access for surgical site examinations.
Front Closure Bras
The Grace Post Surgical Bra by Wear Ease is a specially designed support bra for women who have just undergone breast surgery. This popular bra features a front closure that makes wearing a bra extremely easy.
It’s perfect for after mastectomies, lumpectomies, breast augmentations, reductions, reconstructions, biopsies, and revisions. It is available in 3 colors: white, nude, and black. It’s sturdy and dependable enough for all-day use and still comfortable enough to wear to sleep.
There are no seams or underwires in this bra, so any incisions or delicate skin won’t be irritated. If you’re choosing to wear breast forms after a mastectomy, you can count on the built-in pockets to hold them securely. The moisture-wicking microfiber material is soft and durable and can be hand-washed or thrown into a washer and dryer. There’s no latex in this design, and the front zipper features a protective placket.
Sports Bra Stylings
If you’d prefer an over-the-head style bra with no front or back closures at all, choose the Dawn Post-Surgical Bra by Wear Ease. The Dawn provides support via a gentle elastic band that allows for repositioning the detachable drainage tube pouches from front to sides.
It’s completely latex-free, like other models, and is manufactured using the softest blend of combed cotton and spandex for gentle compression. It’s styled after a sports bra design for your comfort level with no inside seams to irritate the skin. It can easily be slipped on over the head or stepped into.
