Breast Forms for Spring

Kevin Cleary

As we leave the cold weather of winter behind us, the warmer temperatures of spring and summer lead to a wardrobe change that many women who have had a mastectomy may find troubling. After surgery, the use of prosthetics or breast forms may lead to a lack of self-confidence since clothing may be a little more revealing than that of sweaters or turtlenecks in winter. Choosing a breast form that looks natural and is comfortable may seem difficult, but with different styles and materials available to women you can do it!!

Choose Your Look and Style

After surgery your choice of a breast form is a personal one. You can choose different forms based upon your wardrobe choice or in the case of a lumpectomy one that is closely identical to any remaining breast tissue. These prostheses offer the wearer a multitude of choices, even ones that may be better suited for warm weather. Options include:

  • Lightweight Forms: These are perfect for when you need to wear something lighter or maybe during activities. For instance, the ABC Lightweight Full Triangle Shaper Breast Form Kit features two hollow back forms that covers the entire breast area and provide symmetry after surgery. One option that is 35% lighter than standard silicone is the Nearly Me 375 Extra Lightweight Triangle Breast Forms with Flowable Back . These are specifically designed for women who have uneven chest walls after surgery. Lightweight forms are comfortable as well as functional!! Using a breast form that behaves like natural tissue can enhance confidence. Amoena Natura Cosmetic 2S Breast Form makes the wearer feel the comfort of natural breast and contours the body perfectly. Comfort+ material of Amoena Natura Form 320 helps prevent sweat, and the temperature-equalizing feature keeps it bearable during a temperature rise. The InTouch Light Silicone is an improved silicone formulation that creates an ultra-soft breast form with the most natural appearance and feels possible.
  • Cooler Forms: By absorbing excess heat from the body, these forms can give the wearer enhanced comfort by providing optimal air circulation. The Amoena Essential 3S 363 Symmetrical Breast Form suits the basic needs of women undergoing breast surgery. Amoena breast form creates a delicate, natural outline by combining world-class expertise with cutting-edge materials. The Amoena Natura Light 1S Symmetrical Breast Form features a temperature equalizing layer and a shallow fit that has a soft drape resembling the fall of a woman’s breast. Enhance your confidence and comfort without sacrificing security!!
  • Leisure Forms: For relaxing in times of leisure, mastectomy patients may need a breast form that is durable as well as lightweight. We all wear lighter clothing in the spring and summer and our lounging around clothes are no different. Whether you are resting or active out and about, the Trulife Featherweight Foam Breast Form is teardrop shaped and is light enough for immediate post operative use. It can be utilized for both left and right use and can be removed for laundering. One form that is perfect for lounging or exercising is the Classique Post Mastectomy Teardrop Leisure Breast Form . Its lightweight molded polyurethane fabric is seamless and hand washable while it’s concave back accommodates excess tissue. During sleep, Amoena Essential 2E 474 symmetrical Breast Form meets the essential needs of women following breast surgery. Amoena's breast form creates a soft, natural outline. The single-layer breast form looks, feels, and drapes like a real breast and is very light and easy to use. The Amoena Essential breast form is an ideal fit for the body for a perfect silhouette irrespective of the fit of the clothes.

Spring and summer attire can bring about lighter and more revealing clothing. Each woman, after a mastectomy, has a choice to make as far as their prosthesis and it is a personal one. No matter your choice choosing a breast form that is comfortable to wear and stays securely in place is important. You should feel confident choosing a breast form that suits your lifestyle and enjoy the warm weather!!
