Re: Getting another comfy as prothesis not working

ValGJ - thank you so much for that suggestion too. I had previously read about KK, but had totally forgotten to research them, so I’m grateful to your for posting on here. Best wishes, Evie xx

There is a wonderful charity called Knitted Knockers, their volunteers knit lovely soft bra inserts, I have two one for swimming and one for everyday use, they make them to your size. May be worth a try.

Justplainpat - thank you for sharing that link, that sounds exactly what I need. I have had a heavy prosthesis for about 3 years and it has just disintegrated, so I’m looking for a replacement. Evie xx

Hi Tralala

You might also consider the knitted knockers which are by far the most comfortable in my opinion, though of course they are no match in terms of weight. They are free, you can indulge yourself and choose rainbow or any colour you like, nipple or no nipple, and they arrive very quickly in my experience.

Hi Tralala

I hope I can copy the link successfully. I’m a bit of a dinosaur in that department. It’s called the Leisureform - Weighted Foam Breast Form (6110)

Hope it works for you! x

Thanks. I will have a look . The thing is it is not good for your back to go without a bra over the longer term. But being lopsided is not much better.

Re: Getting another comfy as prothesis not working

Hi Tralala

I agree with you about the silicone prosthesis - far too hot and heavy in this weather. Nicola Jane have a good selection of breast forms. I was originally given their catalogue by my breast nurse but they have a good website too. I have recently bought one that bridges the gap between the silicone heavyweight and the original comfy. It is lightweight foam with a silicone centre. I find that the best of a bad bunch, although most things feel like a barbed wire vest as the day wears on. M & S breast forms are very unyielding with uncomfortably sharp edges. 

Sadly, nothing beats the comfort of a real boob, does it?

Hi - I’ve recently bought a couple from Amoena website. These are the same ones I was originally given at hospital. I know M&S do breast forms - but have never tried them. Hope this helps x

Getting another comfy as prothesis not working

I only find my comfy any good for when I need to get out and about . At work my proth just leaves

me hot and sweaty.

Where could I get another comfy?
