    Hi @Jenny66 - why don't you join the "Choosing Breast Reconstruction" group to help with your questions?

    I had a DIEP in March and Revision surgery 10 days ago. I have only worn soft form bras throughout. There are several discussions throughout the online network on the sorts of bras: ah bras; crop tops etc. I got mine from my plastic surgeon, from Berlei, Bras Without Wires and KMart.

    Hey @Jenny66 I agree with Nikki, if you haven't already join the "Choosing Breast Reconstruction Group" I also used soft crop bras from kmart. I definitely would not wear underwire bras. I'm 10 months post single mastectomy/diep flap recon and I went and got fitted by Genevieve Gort in Port Melbourne. She is brilliant and ex Nurse and has fantastic bras all wirefree, I did get a surgical one too which zips up its fantastic! I wouldnt go anywhere else now, best money I've spent. xx Melinda
