Wearing Breast Forms
Natural Looking Breast Line

When dressing, put the breast form or partial form into the bra pocket by gently folding it horizontally and then slipping it in sideways. With a breast form, check that it fills out into the pocket. With a partial form, check that the edges are fully extended and have not rolled over. The smaller shaper can be slipped into the pocket and then positioned as needed.

Beware of jewellery clasps and pins that could puncture the outer skin (if needed, seal the damaged area with a soft medical tape). Also, avoid using perfumed deodorant, moisturisers and the like where the breast form sits against the chest.

If the bra rides up when wearing the breast form, it can be a sign that the breast form is too light to hold the bra in place or the bra band is too loose. If the breast form side of the bra rides up or the natural breast side pulls down and across it can mean that the breast form is lighter than the natural breast.

With wear, bra shoulder straps gradually slip through the adjustment buckle. When this happens breast and breast form alignment can be lost. Regular strap adjustment ensures alignment and wear comfort is retained. Discreetly marking the correct strap adjustment at the buckle allows for a quick and easy check.

If straps are left unadjusted or the bra band is too loose, a breast form can feel heavier. As straps adjustment is lost, the top of the cup is no longer held firmly against the chest the breast form moves back and forward and pulls on the shoulders. If the band is too loose it does not support the weight of the breast form. This results in the bra (and breast form) pulling on the straps and this can be felt as weight on the shoulders.

When undressing, remove the breast form from the bra, clean it, then store it in the shaped mould inside the product box.

Over time, daily wear, handling and cleaning can degrade the shape and feel of a breast form and the silicone can lose its soft or firm feeling (become ‘squishy’) and/or shape (‘sags’). Weight gain or loss, or a change in breast tissues can also mean a different shape, size or weight of breast form is needed.

These changes happen slowly and sometimes go unnoticed because you get used to what you are wearing. A fitting review every couple of years is a way to check that your breast form is giving you a natural looking breast line.

Their 'art' was founded on knowledge, experience, informed questioning and observation, and brought to life in the fitting room.
