This is an exciting time in your life. Your breast augmentation surgery has been a success and you’re back in the comfort of your own home. Now that you’re recovering, it’s time to start thinking about the future—about how you’re going to dress up your body to make everybody “ooh” and “ahh” over your new curves.

Coming up with a wardrobe that tastefully shows off your new and improved figure may seem like a challenge, but it can also be a lot of fun. Below, we have pointed out a few things to keep in mind as you start shopping. Follow these suggestions to maximize your comfort during recovery and beyond while taking full advantage of your sexy, new silhouette.

Recover in comfort.

Compiling a comfortable recovery wardrobe is a great first step towards your body’s future. Because post-op swelling can leave your breasts feeling sore, your first goal should be to find a soft, supportive bra without seams such as a sports bra. You should also make sure you have some loose fitting sweatshirts as well as some zip-front tops, since you won’t have to raise your arms up to get them on.

Find a bra that fits.

Once your fully recovered, it’s time to go out and find some bras that really fit your new breasts–ones that not only provide the support you need, but show off your breasts in style. To that end, you should have your bust measured and your optimal bra size determined by a trained professional. Retail stores like Nordstrom and Victoria’s Secret offer this service for free and will be able to help you find the right bra for your new, fuller figure.

Dress for success.

Beyond finding some great bras, it’s time to start looking for some tops that really flatter your new body! While you should probably avoid strapless dresses at first, since they will squeeze your bust and provide little in terms of support, V-necks and cowl-necks are great options. By accenting your waistline, they will help to highlight the improvements you have made to your silhouette.

One of the best perks of your new figure is the chance to show off your curves in some fresh and fashionable swimwear. Although you may want to avoid spaghetti straps for the sake of comfort and support, halter-style swimsuits can provide your new breasts with the support they need while accentuating your enhanced cleavage. With the sun at your back, you’ll be feeling hot and looking hot at the same time!
