Breast forms (or prostheses) are artificial breasts that help women reclaim their natural silhouette after a full or partial mastectomy or a lumpectomy procedure. Women who have not had reconstructive surgery, and those dissatisfied with their reconstruction, rely on mastectomy bras to improve their balance, comfort, and confidence.
Some women wear a temporary breast form while awaiting reconstructive surgery, while others use breast forms for aesthetic purposes.
Most artificial breasts are made from silicone gel, a non-toxic and heat-resistant substance that won’t harm your natural skin if the prosthesis punctures or tears. Many breast forms are weighted to match the weight of your natural breast, though some women prefer a more lightweight option.
Anita Breast Forms
Since 1886, Anita has led the industry by catering to the specific and changing needs of women. Anita offers a line of breast forms that emphasize comfort and security while providing women with a natural look that eliminates post-surgery insecurities.
Breast Form Offerings
Anita offers a wide variety of breast forms that provide shape and definition for women after any breast surgery.
For women who have undergone a radical double mastectomy, Anita carries full prostheses options that completely fill out the breast cup and lower breast region. Anita’s post-mastectomy bras protect surgical scars and sensitive skin from friction when wearing breast forms, which is crucial during the initial care phase following surgery.
Women who have undergone unilateral surgery to remove a single biological breast will appreciate Anita’s Asymmetrical Lightweight Silicone Prosthesis. With microfiber backing for enhanced breathability and comfort and a ribbed design for increased airflow and natural draping, this skin-friendly prosthesis can help you regain breast symmetry and ease your mind after breast surgery.
Anita’s partial breast forms allow women who still have some original breast tissue to regain shape, volume, and balance following a lumpectomy or breast conservation surgery.
Anita’s Sequinature Compensation Breast Form comes in a teardrop shape, and its soft, thin, tapered edges offer a natural transition between your body and breast area. The Anita Equitex Volume Breast Form offers variable filling so that you can customize the forms to the perfect size and weight for you. This makes them ideal for disguising uneven scar tissue and large breast volume losses.
Patients after breast surgery often struggle to return to physical activity, but Anita offers excellent breast prostheses designed for exercise and even ideal for swimming.
Anita’s aerated silicone forms feature an ultra-lightweight design that is gentle on the skin, providing comfort during vigorous movement. Silicone forms specifically designed for swimming offer a ribbed design that quickly drains away water, and their asymmetrical shape provides optimal underarm compensation for regular swimmers.
Anita Breast Forms and Mastectomy Bras
While you can wear adhesive breast forms directly on your chest wall, mastectomy bras offer more security and comfort. Anita’s comfortable mastectomy bra collection includes styles and features that support any breast form. Many bras come with breast form pockets that keep a breast prosthesis secure during movement and prevent the breast forms from rubbing and irritating sensitive skin.
