    I have gone to Breast Care Victoria, in Port Melbourne, which I found very good.

    But Myer in the city has also
    been good too, with a wide range of bras. 

    Both can fit for swim wear and swim prostheses too! 

    Best wishes.

    I was given my first bra in hospital, with a dacron encased filling.
    If you have that or are month or 2 on, you may be looking for the next bra.
    There is Medicare funding for this.
    If you go to a reputable bra seller, they could assist you.
    Make a few calls. Try Myer. I'm in SA, sorry.
