How tight should a macom feel?

Post by daisychain15 on 12th February 2016, 10:16 am

Hi girlies

Well, it'll be a week tomorrow since I got my new boobs! Had a shallow bath the other night and my mum helped to wash my hair with a towel round my chest haha, I felt great though after washing my hair.. I couldn't believe how greasy it got in just a few days! Recovery has been great.. no problems as of yet and my boobs are starting to look really natural already and feel quite soft which I never expected so soon. At first I thought they were really small, but when I take off my bra I feel really happy with them and once they have settled more I think they'll be perfect for me. 

With regards to the macom, I have been wearing a loose sports bra from M&S which has no support in really whatsoever but feels comfy. I put my macom on every day for a few hours or to sleep in (my surgeon didn't mind if I wore a bra or not for recovery) but it hurts after a while because it's so tight even on the loosest hooks. I know they are meant to be tight but when I wake up in one I have really bad pain across my chest and incisions but when I wake up with my sports bra on I have no pain! Is this just normal for macoms? Thanks xxx

Hope everyones doing well! Give You

Hello!  You are looking fab - I don't think they look too small - they look perfect for you!!  Its great you are having such a good recovery - mine was rubbish!!

No its not normal for Macoms to cause pain as such in your incisions or your chest.  What size did you get? XS or S?  I am a 31 band but I bought the small which is 32.  You are probably a bit swollen which won't help.  I found my macom really uncomfortable and tight and it kept rolling up around the first week of surgery due to all the swelling but it soon improved.  I undid the last few hooks so it was less pressure on my ribs.

Now all my swelling has gone my macom feels lovely - like a comfortable hug and I just wear it in bed at night.

If it is causing pain and your surgeon hasn't specifically said you  need to wear it then its a bit of a no-brainer - I'd just stop wearing it for a week or so until it feels comfortable to do so.

Hi daisy chain 

Glad your on a speedy recovery, I was like Lucy I had a terrible recovery but it's all in a distant memory!!!

The macom is meant to be tight to hold them in place, like Lucy said if your surgeon said not to wear one then I wouldnt. If you feel that you want to wear something then stick with your sports bras. 

Happy healing xx

it's a compression garment so it's meant to keep you stable. But it shouldn't be painful. Not all girls get on with it. As above, if youve not specifically been told to wear it, ditch it for something you're comfy in.

Thanks ladies for the replies! It is a size S and I measure a 30/32 chest.. I haven't worn it since I posted this and I feel good. Wearing a stretchy thin sports bra which is super comfy.. seeing my surgeon on Weds though for my check up and to get my tape off which is around the whole of the underneath of boobies to armpits. 

Like you said [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I can probably wear it once swelling has settled, even though I don't feel it! xxxx
