A breast form bra is an undergarment designed to support and shape the breasts using breast forms.
Since breast forms are often used by women who have undergone mastectomies, they can help to create a natural-looking silhouette.
We offer various brands that provide breast form bras, including Anita and Amoena. These bras typically feature pockets in the cups that allow the breast forms to be inserted, and they may also have additional support features such as molded cups, padding, and extra wide underbust bands.
Breast form bras can be made from various materials, including cotton, lace, and satin. They also come in multiple styles, from comfortable seamless bras to wear under tight-fitting garments to high-impact sports bras to reduce breast form movement when you exercise.
A breast form can help to create a more feminine silhouette and can be used to fill out dresses, tops, and even swimsuits. Depending on your needs and preferences, there are a few different ways to use breast forms.
One common way to wear breast forms is by placing them in a bra. This can give you the most natural look and the most comfortable option. If you wear your forms in a bra, pick a well-fitting garment that offers adequate support, such as a mastectomy bra or camisole. You may also want to try using breast petals or silicone nipple covers to help keep your forms in place.
Another option is to wear your breast forms directly on your skin. This can be a good choice if you want to avoid wearing a bra or if you will be wearing a garment that doesn’t have pockets for breast forms. If you wear your breast forms this way, you can use double-sided tape or skin-friendly adhesives to keep them in place.
There are many factors to consider when choosing a breast form, such as size, shape, weight, and material. Breast forms come in various sizes for women of differing body shapes, from petite to full-figured. Choosing one proportionate to your body type is critical for your profile and self-confidence.
Breast forms come in different shapes, such as teardrop or round, so you can choose one that will create the desired silhouette.
Teardrop breast forms have more volume below the nipple and taper toward the top. These forms are ideal for women with moderate natural breast projection.
Round or oval breast forms have an even volume above and below the nipple, providing fuller breast projection.
Triangle-shaped breast forms are ideal if you have a wider chest wall or broad shoulders. The tapered edges contour to your underarms for added security, and they offer shallow breast projection.
You should also consider the breast form’s weight when making your selection. Some women prefer a lighter form, while others find that a heavier form provides more support and a more realistic appearance.
Decide what material you would like your breast form to be made from when choosing the form that is right for you. Silicone is the most popular choice because it feels the most natural, but latex and foam options are also available.
Many breast forms have specific design features to enhance comfort and security. If you live an active lifestyle, opt for aerated silicone gel forms. These forms offer the same natural look and feel of natural breast tissue, but they are up to 35% lighter than standard silicone breast prostheses, minimizing breast bounce.
You can also find breast forms with a massage backing' that gently stimulates lymph and blood flow to the chest wall to facilitate recovery.
During hot weather, wear breast prostheses with a ribbed backing. This allows for optimal airflow, helping regulate your temperature and reducing perspiration to keep you cool and dry all day.

Breast forms are typically made of silicone, gel, or foam. Silicone is the most popular choice because it feels the most realistic and holds its shape well. A non-silicone breast prosthesis like gel and foam breast forms are also available but may not last as long as silicone forms.
The best way to choose the right size is to consult a professional fitting specialist. They can recommend the right size and style based on your body type. Breast forms often come in numerical sizes that correspond to bra cup sizes; check Mastectomyshop.com’s size guides for reference.
Yes, you can wear breast forms during exercise. However, it is essential to choose a form that is specifically designed for exercise. These forms usually have a firmer construction that prevents them from moving around during physical activity. Wear your breast forms inside a high-quality sports bra to minimize movement.
The frequency with which you need to replace your breast forms depends on the type of form you choose and how often you wear them. Silicone forms typically last between one and five years, while gel and foam forms may only last six months to a year.
You may choose to wear a bra with your breast forms, but it is not required. If you wear a bra, choose one that fits well and provides adequate support.
