Why Wear a Form?

After a mastectomy or lumpectomy, using a breast form and recovery garments can provide important benefits for your physical and mental health. Here are some of the reasons why you might consider them for you: 

Breast Form Information
  • Restoring body image and self-esteem: Losing a breast can be a difficult and emotional experience. Wearing a breast form can help you feel more comfortable and confident in your appearance, and improve your overall quality of life.

  • Balancing the body: Losing one or both breasts can cause asymmetry, which can lead to physical discomfort and difficulty finding clothes that fit well. Wearing a breast form can help restore balance to your body, making it easier to find clothing that fits comfortably.

  • Improving posture: Losing breast tissue can affect your posture and cause back and neck pain. A breast form can provide support and help improve your posture, reducing pain and discomfort.

  • Reducing the risk of lymphedema: Breast surgery can sometimes cause lymphedema, a condition where the lymphatic system becomes blocked and causes swelling in the arms or chest. Wearing a properly fitting breast form and using post surgical compression garments can help reduce the risk of lymphedema by providing gentle compression and support.

  • Improving mental health: Wearing a breast form can help you feel more comfortable and confident in social situations, and improve your sense of connection with others. By restoring symmetry and balance to your body, a breast form can help reduce anxiety and depression related to body image issues.
