Wal-Mart and Target both sell D cup bras with padding. I believe that Victoria Secrets does too.

What about your breast size since surgery???

Mine has escalated to a wopping 38 DD.....ugh! Went from a 38D but the added cup size is a killer. Am considering a reduction because of straps cutting into my shoulders and back and neck pain.

What about your breast size since surgery???

Mine have surely gotten larger too. I am usually an average to low C and they are now a very, very full C and probably a low D. Hope they go back down. I thought I was losing my mind until I saw the other posts. I had a breast reduction in 1990 and have no desire to have larger breasts. I am only 5 weeks post op so hoping it is just part of the recovery. Did anyones stay larger for an extended period or permanent?? As always, I feel more normal after reading what everyone else has to say. Thank you for all the input!!!
Have a great week!!!

I'm a little bigger, but that's due to lactation. I still haven't figured THAT one out yet!

What about your breast size since surgery???

Not to be a smart alleck but I went to nothing.. I had bilateral mastectomies at the same time as my LAVH/BSO. I see my surgeon on monday and get a referral to the prosthetic people. I get to chose my breast size. My plan is to go small, medium and large. One for every occasion. I will have reconstruction I THINK in a year or so. Not enough fat to do it sooner. Friends stated they would be willing to donate. Plastic surgeon thought that was funny. I will now have to grow into my boobs. This will be the first time I will have breasts in a very long time. I never was any bigger than an A cup so this should be interesting.

Oh no!

Like a hyst isn't bad enough, but it can affect bra size too? I'm not sure if that is affecting my size or if it's because I'm dieting and my son has stopped nursing and the supply has dried up. I'm definitely shrinking, which bums me out. Most of the women in my family are well endowed, except for me. I was enjoying them for a while while my DS was breastfeeding. Now they are withering away. Oh well.

I get new boobies!!

Had my follow up appointment today and got my referral to get my prosthetics. Hard to find ones for a person who has a broad chest. I will be bigger, B cup instead of A. Get them in a week. My chest will finally be bigger then my husbands. He is thrilled. Found out I can't have reconstruction due to the extensive removal of fat and muscle. Thats okay, was turning chicken anyway.
