What are orthotics?

Mastectomy Products


A breast form is a prosthesis worn either inside a bra or attached to the body to simulate the weight, bounce, feel, movement, and especially shape of the natural female breast. Depending on the material or shape used, these qualities can be achieved to different degrees. Our certified fitters have the knowledge needed to make the best choice for you. Taking your physical needs, personal lifestyle and preferences into considertation.

Bra size:


The way your bra fits could influence the way your prosthesis feels. The bra should hold your breast form snugly against your body. If your bra is too loose or stretched, the prosthesis will sag and feel heavier than it should; if your bra is too tight, the band will feel uncomfortable and the prosthesis will be more visible.

Posture:


If your shoulders are not aligned, our fitters may suggest a different prosthesis to fit your posture. You may need a weighted prosthesis that will keep your chest wall muscles from contracting and pulling your shoulder out of place, which could make you feel uncomfortable.

Prosthesis Adjustmenst:


Our fitters may adjust your bra size to account for changes to your breast because of age or weight gain.
