You’ve done it – your breast augmentation surgery & recovery period is over and you now have a beautifully proportioned female form just waiting to be enhanced by a new wardrobe. What an exciting problem to tackle! Before diving into the task, it is important to remember that your body has changed and so must your attire. Let’s take a look at three tips for perfectly flattering your new figure.

Obtain Accurate Breast Augmentation Measurements

No matter your personal style, the first step in clothing your new figure is obtaining accurate measurements of your new bust. It is important to wait until you are completely healed in order to prevent an inaccurate measurement as a result of post-surgery swelling. When obtaining measurements, be sure to measure your band size and bust size. Providing these measurements to a brassiere specialist will help determine where to start in the search for new undergarments. If your new bra pinches your skin, won’t stay in place, or is too baggy or constricting, you are wearing the incorrect size. Well-fitting undergarments are an essential part of getting the most out of your new wardrobe.

Determine Your Body Type

After breast augmentation surgery, your entire figure is transformed. While you may have been born with an apple or pear-shaped body, your body type has likely changed since surgery. When shopping for a new wardrobe, it’s important to consider your new body type. Fitted jackets and dresses help accentuate curves while creating an appealing line. Try to avoid clothing with too many embellishments in the chest area in order to keep your style chic and attractive. Are you planning to cruise the social scene? Try V-neck tops or dresses designed to leave one shoulder bare for that additional “wow” factor.

Opt for Breast Support

Breast augmentation surgery is a significant investment meant to last a lifetime – as long as you’re supported. When compiling your new wardrobe, it is important to make sure that your new bust receives the support it needs. Tell-tale signs of poor support include back strain, red marks, and falling straps. In order to flatter your figure and get the most out of your new form, it’s essential to choose clothing with adequate support. Avoid clothing and undergarments that are too constricting, too loose or create bulges in all the wrong places.
