What is the best bra to wear after a breast reduction and a lift?

Hi I'm on my second week of breast reduction and a lift and I was wondering what bra should I use, I know it's a surgical one but what brand and style. The ones I have looked online are $125 or over and I was told by a nurse that I can buy something way cheaper from Playtex brand and I'm so confused so any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

I usually recommend to wear a compression sports bra that provides support.  It should be snug, but not too tight.  It doesn't have to be "fancy" or  expensive.  If you have any questions once you buy one, check with your doctor's office to make sure it's ok.  Hope that helps.

All breasts will be somewhat different, size and shape.  You'll want one that is snug but not tight and supportive.  No underwire.
