Post surgery bra buying

Hi - I am new to this group. I had a lumpectomy ten days ago and went to buy a bra last week. It was hard enough to find a shop that sold them. Seemed sensible to get measured and try on to find one that felt comfortable but in a few shops the assistants gave me blank looks and told me to go online which was depressing. A friend said I wouldn't be charged for the VAT but the guy in the very well known department store that did have one thought I was making it up when I asked him atbout the VAT thing at the till. It made a difficult experience even worse. Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice on where I should and where shouldn't I shop?
