32j Bride Considering Reduction Mammaplasty Before Wedding

I have been attempting to get a breast reduction due to the chronic pain and back spasms the "girls" have been giving me ever since I ended up as a 34DDD at age 14. But with the USA healthcare system being what it is, private health insurance kept making me jump through hoops and refusing to pay for it. First I needed six months physical therapy, then I was told I was simply morbidly obese and told to not come back until I was a "healthy" 105- 115 lbs. My physical therapist, primary doctor, personal trainer AND plastic surgeon all agreed that this was ridiculous as I was healthy and had already lost a ton of weight and that most of the weight were coming from the girls. They eventually told me to just wait until I got to Canada since the healthcare system is much better up here than in the states so I let it go.

Now I'm still waiting for my Manitoba Health Card to arrive, but my wedding is in 630 days and I'm being told by the in-laws that the wait times might not allow me to heal properly in time for the wedding by the time I get the surgery booked.

Thing is, I'm a 32J size bust and it's impossible for me to wear the bras needed for the type of wedding dress I've got my heart set on, and I know that I would feel more comfortable with a bra that properly holds the girls in and doesn't cause me to need to add several yards of fabric to my dress just to keep from flashing the guests, but I'm also worried I'll screw myself over if i get the surgery before the wedding.


HELP! Has any other brides out there gone through a massive plastic surgery before your wedding?

    So I got my dress at a local store - you could check on the Essence of Australia website to see what local stores sell their brand. I actually didn’t get the first dress I loved because I ended up loving another style better, but both dresses were from the same brand. I’m in Ottawa and got my dress at the With Love bridal boutique.

    Thanks. Hopefully I can get it to work or at least find a dress that fits properly. I've tried all the different kinds of support for strapless dresses but the girls are too large so they don't work. Been a problem since i was a kid- I actually full out flashed my high school's priest during prom because of this issue. Been anxious about proper support ever since.

    Do you know of any stores that might have dresses that work?

    I totally get your dilemma. I was actually super worried about finding a dress since I wear a 36M and was convinced that nothing would fit me. I actually looked into possibly getting my dress custom made. Huge shock for me was that I was able to find a dress that fits and that I can wear braless. My dress is an off the shoulder Essence of Australia dress 😊 if you’re unable to get the surgery before your wedding, maybe look into getting the dress you love with built in support (you may need to get it tailored to fit you elsewhere but that’s normal).

    I really have no idea what this would be like. I think once you have your healthcard I would find a doctor and talk with them about it. Maybe the doctor would have someone who you could talk to about recovery times, at least give you an idea about how long you'd have to wait for the surgery itself. With covid so many surgeries have been put on hold there is a very real possibility that you may not even be looking at a date for the surgery before your wedding date.
