I can only answer on the bl part.
They will send you home in a surgical bra, which you will probably be in for a week at least. After that my surgeon said if I wanted to I could continue to wear it. But mine was stained and kinda gross, so I went to Sears and I bought sports bras. One each large and extra large, front zip. I ended up taking the x large back and exchanging it for another large in black.
Now at three weeks they still fit fine. I do think when my swelling goes down I will be able to go into a medium.
