Post-mastectomy, one or both of the breasts of a woman need to be removed as a part of the treatment, and it gives an asymmetrical shape to the body. To feel confident and wholesome post-mastectomy, we bring you a wide range of mastectomy breast forms. They can help restore the natural shape and symmetry of the breast, making women feel more confident and comfortable with their appearance. These products are made of soft and fine quality fabric, which protects the sensitive skin of the user and gives her a sense of security. Mastectomy forms are designed to provide a realistic look and feel soft and natural on the skin. They come in different sizes, styles, and materials and may have an artificial nipple or a particular shape. We carry products from the best manufacturers that are available in breast forms.
Using breast forms after mastectomy can offer several benefits to women, including:
Breast forms can be worn externally or attached to the skin. External prostheses are worn inside mastectomy bras with pockets. The attachable mastectomy prosthesis is for those who do not want to wear pocketed bras and use a prosthetic that is in a self-adhesive form and can be attached to the skin with adhesives. Camisole prosthesis is suitable for those who have just had a mastectomy and the scars have not yet healed. There is no bra involved, and the mastectomy forms are slipped inside a soft camisole that is gentle on the body. If you are wearing a top with a built-in shelf bra, you do not even need a mastectomy bra.
The best mastectomy forms are those that can be worn in all situations, resist shifting and imbalance, feel natural, and be as close as possible in appearance and feel to the biological breast. Buying such a breast form is not difficult with the wide range that we bring from the best manufacturers.
After mastectomy, choosing the right mastectomy breast forms becomes important. An important criterion for this is the material. Generally, mastectomy forms are made of silicone gel, latex, rubber, and other gel substances. Silicone breast forms are popular and comfortable, but they are expensive. An example of a good silicone breast prosthesis is the ABC 1072 Classic Triangle Breast Form, which is 30 percent lighter than standard silicone for less strain on the shoulder and back.
A more cost-effective alternative is the non-silicone breast prosthesis such as those made of foam or fiberfill. These have the shape of a natural breast but not the weight, droop, or feel. Foam/fiberfill mastectomy forms can be worn post-mastectomy or during workouts and keep you cool in hot weather. A fine example of a foam breast form is the Trulife Tri-Leisure weighted type, which is a soft and lightweight product best for temporary wear during leisure activities.
We have different types of breast forms available, such as silicone mastectomy forms, non-silicone/lightweight forms, cooler forms, dark tone forms, swim/exercise forms, attachable forms, foam/fiberfill forms, and leisure forms.
Several other factors are involved when considering which mastectomy breast form to buy. These include:
The most important thing about wearing a mastectomy form is getting the size right. Comfort and wear time extension will depend on this factor. So before buying bra inserts after mastectomy, check our sizing guide for different manufacturers.

A breast form is an artificial breast prosthesis that has similar feel and weight like that of a natural breast. It is designed to be worn externally.
Breast forms are worn if the natural breast or breasts have been removed by surgery following breast cancer diagnosis or for some other reason. Wearing a breast form increases self-confidence and enhances quality of life after breast surgery.
Most weighted breast forms are made of silicone gel. Less expensive types are those made of foam or fiberfill.
Yes, silicone breast forms can be worn when swimming – in a pool, ocean or Jacuzzi. They are not affected by salt or chlorine water. But they should be cleaned and dried thoroughly once you are out of the water.
Breast forms are available in symmetrical and asymmetrical designs. Symmetrical breast forms can be worn on either the left side of the body or the right side. On the other hand, an asymmetrical breast form fits either the right side of the body or the left side.
Breast forms are durable but need to be protected from sharp objects to prevent damage to the outer film. Use warm water and mild soap for cleaning the breast form.
It is advised to store the breast form in a cradle for maintaining its shape and securing it from getting damaged. A two-year guarantee is offered by many manufacturers.
