Thankyou lovely ladies, i am glad to hear there is some comfy ones around. Im only small boobs so not usedcto waering bif full cup bras.

And hope Mcnulcc Chris is having a better day today....big hugs and love to all xxxxxx
Thank you for those After Eights, Lucaboo they were delish - a little (or a lot) of what you fancy does you good!!!
Re bras, I wore, and am still wearing, crop top style ones - I’m fairly small and these were recommended by my oncologist as the most comfortable. No M&S over here unfortunately. 😞 However I have also done the same as Helena and taken the underwire out of my bras...seems to work quite well and is much more comfortable. Need to take them off as soon as get home though. I am 12 weeks on from rads and still find I have an itchy boob at times.
Hope everyone if feeling ok today.
Love Rosie xx
I also wore the M&S post surgery bras, as they are non-wired, supportive, and actually they are the most comfortable and flattering bra I have worn! Took awhile in and out of the changing room at M&S to find the right size, but I am wearing them still - surgery was in May - I alternate, wash and wear, they dry very quickly. They are maybe a bit more pricey than some other stores, but VAT-free, and have paid for themselves over this last 4 months. I used to just wear an underwire £6 Sainsburys lacy type bra, and only now do I realise how unflattering they were to a woman of 63, lol !!!
I wore the non wire bras that I bought from M&S whilst I was having rads which were lovely soft and supportive, After I finished rads I took the wire out of one of my usual bras on the op side and found that worked well.
Can any of you ladies who are post rads tell me when you can wear a proper bra again after lumpectomy?. Ive worn tho soft crop top bra but god almighty they make me look like a sack of spuds, im so looking forward to getting bit support shape back...any ideas most appre..xxxx
What a lovely thread this is? Thank you for your kind welcome and reassuring words, Helena, Gill and Lucaboo!
Sorry you are having a sad day Mcnulcc! I think the others have said it all but I’m sending some hugs to you too. No wonder you feel like this if you were supposed to be going on holiday today. There will be others and you’ll have a wonderful time when you go. My plans for a visit to celebrate my big birthday didn’t happen and I felt cheated.😢 However there will be another time!!
Glad to hear the coffee is always on, so I’ll bring the pastries!! I too am 60 and often think that we must make the most of our time and enjoy life. Now where are the chocolates...?
Love to you all
