First and foremost, it should feel and look great. There is a noticeable difference when you slip into a well-fitted bra. You feel secure and supported.

You will be aware that you are wearing a well-fitted bra. The band should feel snug but not tight. If you can't feel the band, it's not doing its job.
The bra should remain in place when you raise your arms or lean over. Your breasts should not pop out of the cups when you move.
Compression sleeves and garments are designed to do just what their name suggests: apply pressure to the arm, hand, or trunk to keep lymph moving in the right direction. (Remember that some lymphatic vessels are located just under the surface of your skin.) Research studies have not yet looked at the effectiveness of compression sleeves alone in treating lymphedema. However, experts have found them to be effective as part of the overall treatment plan. Examples include:
You’ve had your surgery but now’s the time to be good to yourself. Don’t try to rush your recovery, there’s no fixed timeline and even the smallest of
smallest of steps are positive moves forward.
Recovery will eventually turn into routine, as you grow accustomed to your new life.
