I like wearing a sports bra also. We have to be EXTREMELY cautious about wearing anything tight if lymph nodes have been removed. I'm seeing a PT right now that specializes in lymphedema, and one of the first thing she wanted to look at was how tight my bra was. She told me she believes it is an ongoing cause of lymphedema arising years after surgery. I don't have it, but I do have a small amount of swelling in my arm, so I went out of precaution.
I only wear a bra when I leave the house!!! As I've aged, I'm happy I don't have big ta-tas!!!
