Hard to Wear a Bra, Anyone?

on 8/22/19 12:22 pm

I am 6 weeks post op from my Gastric Bypass RNY, and I can't handle wearing a bra for more than 3 to 4 hours. I switched from a traditional bra to a looser sports bra, but I still feel like its way too much pressure on my new pouch. I am miserable and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem???

You might need to be refitted to find something that is not putting too much pressure on your pouch.

I've never heard of this before! Is it common because it's never happened to me?

Yes and it?s still annoying 4 me . I keep a few stretched out bras and snug Lycra type cotton tank tops to wear around the house now . I used to wear tight cotton underwire bras still wear em out in public but can?t stand the constriction around my chest at home :( .

not wearing bras at all will make your breasts saggy ... they're not supported by much except skin ...

It's only been 11 days since my surgery, but I'm feeling this as well. I sure hope it doesn't last.
