Many doctors recommend sports bras post-surgery because sports bras have no underwire and have soft cups, not molded ones. However, most sports bras are less than ideal after surgery. They are designed to compress natural breast tissue and to restrict breast movement during exercise. Implants and prosthetics can't be comfortably compressed in the same way as natural breast tissue. Constriction can be painful post-surgery. Another tricky thing about most sports bras is that they are hard to put on and take off. After surgery, most patients have a limited range of motion. One more barrier for those looking for sports bras to wear after surgery is that ordinary sports bras are designed for those with two natural breasts.

For most people getting dressed for a workout is the first step to getting your body moving. Getting ready prepares your mind, and gets you in the zone and ready to take on your goals. “I feel like getting dressed is half the battle and once you are dressed, you feel good. But if you don’t even feel good in getting dressed, you’re not going to feel good in doing a workout,” says Paige. That is the exact reason why we created The Paige Sports Bra.
Summer has arrived, which means it’s time to get outside, enjoy the fresh air and get active. To ensure that you are properly supported and comfortable, it’s imperative that you have the right sports bra.
