How to Shop for a New Wardrobe after your Breast Augmentation in New Jersey

Breast Augmentation With Implants

Shopping is something most women look forward to once they’ve finally had their breast augmentation in New Jersey. Now that you’ve got the figure you’ve long desired, you’re probably anxious to head to your favourite stores and get your new silhouette fitted. Hold on- there’s some essential info you need before you splurge!

Before you hit the shops, pause to consider which styles will fit your new shape. You’ll need to get used to having a curvier figure, and some fashions you loved before might not look as great now.

On a positive note, all the tops you didn’t previously fill out, or mismatched tops and bottoms, could be a thing of the past.

1. When Can I Go Bra Shopping After my New Jersey Breast Augmentation?

As Dr. Michael Gartner, New Jersey breast augmentation expert will tell you; you’ll need to wait for swelling to resolve before you can shop. The most dramatic recovery changes happen in just a week or two, but further healing of tissue by 4-6 weeks post-op will have you much closer to your final size. Waiting until your breasts soften into their new shape and position will ensure you buy things in the right size. In the mean-time, have some comfortable, easy-to-wear bras and clothing on hand. We know it can seem like a long wait, but it’s worth it if you want to enjoy your purchases for a long time.

2. Which Bras will be Best?

The first thing to know is that you need to wear wire-free bras just after your breast augmentation. This is to protect the incisions and allow your implants to settle into place without interference. When Dr. Gartner gives you the go-ahead, you can visit your favourite lingerie store to buy your first supportive bras. Today, shopping online is super convenient, but in the case of your new assets, we recommend an in-person fitting first, so there’s no guesswork when it comes to your cup size.

3. Which Bathing Suits will be the Most Flattering?

Bathing suits can be a challenge when adjusting to your new chest. Styles like the triangle or strapless bikini tops may have been your go-to options in the past, but they might not look or feel ideal now. You’ll want bathing suits that provide support and coverage to look and feel your best on the beach. Here are two styles we’d recommend:

– Halter-tops: flatter cleavage and give great support

– Underwire tops: guarantee support much like brassieres

– Wider straps: for long-lasting comfort

– Pro-tip: Experiment with buying tops and bottoms in different sizes to see which fit you best!

4. What can You Wear to Work?

If you have a conservative work environment, stylish suits with a defined waist will enhance your curves without drawing more attention than you want. Loose-fitting tops will hang off your bust, making your figure appear larger. Try fitted tops and dresses, and a jacket with a button under your bust for cooler weather.

Choosing the right neckline is also very important. V-necks highlight your cleavage, but they can be a bit revealing in some work environments. A cowl-neck, sweetheart neckline or square neck are very flattering alternatives.

5. What About Figure-Flattering Evening Wear?

Whether going on a date or to a dinner party, shopping for evening pieces can be one of the most exciting parts of your post-op journey. When choosing a dress, square necklines or tops that bare one shoulder will highlight your new bust-size. We recommend staying away from strapless tops as they can make your breasts look and feel constricted. As with your workplace attire, choose tailored tops and dresses that cinch at the waist.

If you have any more questions regarding post-op care, or you need help planning your own recovery timeline, we welcome you to contact Gartner Plastic Surgery today.
