    When choosing the best bra for breast implants, it's essential to first consider the most supportive and comfortable options. In addition, check out some other important features when selecting a bra for your breast implants:

    • Front-Fastening Bras for post-surgery recovery 
    • Front-Adjustable Straps for limited range of motion
    • Underwire free
    • Soft cups to mold to your new shape
    • Softer-than-cotton modal keeps cool and comfortable
    • Fit
    • Functionality

    Size Matters

    After having implant reconstruction or breast augmentation, it's important to note that your breast size has likely changed. In an effort to purchase the most comfortable, supportive, and flattering bra, you may want to be professionally measured and fitted. As our bodies change, so does our bra size! You will want to consult with your doctor as to how tight this bra should be, as well. Check out a store in your area that carries the AnaOno Collections and call in-advance to ensure they have what you are looking for.

    Can you wear underwire bras with implants? 

    You should avoid wearing bras with underwear after getting breast implants. This is especially critical directly after surgery such as a mastectomy, as the underwire can rub at the incision in your skin beneath the breasts. Incisions must heal without any irritation (which the underwire in bras can cause). If they don't, the incisions can open, which can lead to infection. If you desire the additional support that underwire can offer, we suggest speaking with your doctor before wearing a bra with underwire!
