Fitting Tip #1
Your size changes over time. Trying a new bra size or having a professional breast prosthesis fitting can lead to a better fit.
Fitting Tip #2
Even a five-pound weight gain or loss can change your bra size.
Fitting Tip #3
It is good to have at least one bra to wear, one to wash, and one ready to wear.
Fitting Tip #4
Standard silicone is the closest in texture and feel to a natural breast. It also holds its shape in water.
Fitting Tip #5
Medicare approves one silicone breast form every two years; two silicone breast forms for bilateral mastectomies.
Fitting Tip #6
Seamless bras are a great choice to wear under more clingy garments.
Fitting Tip #7
The average functional life of a mastectomy bra is three to six months, depending on how often it is worn.
Fitting Tip #8
Wearing the incorrect size bra that does not fit properly or forces the breast form into a different shape can cause the form to crease or to be distorted.
Fitting Tip #9
Your breast form should be checked every six months to make sure that the fit is correct and that it is in good condition.
Fitting Tip #10
The weight of your breasts should be supported through the back of the bra; shoulder straps should be adjusted accordingly.
Fitting Tip #11
After washing, it takes 48 hours for the lycra (spandex) in the bra to retain its regular support.
Fitting Tip #12
Breasts should be well contained within the cup. Bulging above the bra or underarm edges means the cup is too small.
Fitting Tip #13
Mastectomy bras wear out and stretch, losing their elasticity quicker than other bras. A worn-out bra can cause your breast form to pull away from your chest wall, causing a heavy feeling and back strain.
Fitting Tip #14
An appropriate mastectomy bra and breast prosthesis fitting is not merely for cosmetic reasons. When a breast is removed, the body is no longer in balance and will compensate with slight curving of the spine and "shoulder drop." Both conditions can lead to chronic lower back pain.
Fitting Tip #15
Thicker straps are a good choice for larger cup sizes (C, D, DD+).
Fitting Tip #16
Molded cups give more natural shaping.
Fitting Tip #17
Molded cups are a good choice for larger-sized women.
Fitting Tip #18
Medicare approves one foam breast form every six months, two for bilateral.
Fitting Tip #19
Going strapless? Go down one cup size for that perfect glove-like fit!
Fitting Tip #20
Breast form prostheses are considered a medical device and are regulated by the FDA.
