Post-operative Support Garments
These garments or support bras are usually an out of pocket expense for many patients although, some surgeons do include them in their price. However, not all are made from the same cloth so to speak. Many are nothing more than sheer, low quality material and ready to tear any moment. Fortunately, there are fabulous garments out there with padded zippers, run-stop fabrics, even in custom specifications, and they don't come cheap either. However, you do get what you pay for, so shop wisely.
Support Garments may cost anywhere from $10. for a cheap sportsbra to $120. for a high quality post-operative bra. Price depends upon the quality, garment type and if it is a custom product. Colors are usually white or off white, however more and more companies are offering beige and black color choices to their catalogs. Compare prices from your surgeon and from online companies. Also compare quality, the last thing you need is a garment ripping as soon as you go to put it on after your first shower or thin, flimsy straps breaking at an inopportune time. Consider buying TWO, one to wear while the other is being laundered.
