How to Measure
Select the proper shape and size of the remaining breast. Consider the best style bra that fits your natural breast.
Take a soft tape measure and measure around the body where your bra band fits(with a bra on). Pull the tape snug but not tight.This will give you your band size. Make sure the tape is even all around your body.Next, measure from the center of the chest wall on top of existing breast to the center of the back. Double that measurement and that should give you an approximate measurement of how to figure the cup size. Uneven numbers-round off to next whole number. Subtract the band size from the measurement of the cup size . Each 1″ difference is a cup size. (band size 34″,cup measurement, 36″–should be 34 B)
Fitting A Prosthesis | Prosthesis Shapes:
Triangular shaped forms can be worn on either the left or the right side of the body. These are suitable for younger women with firmer pectoral muscles. These shapes are designed to suit most contemporary surgical techniques, where less breast tissue is removed.
Suitable for women whose surgeries remove some underarm or Clavicle tissue. The teardrop form has an extension which can be angled for best fit. Can be worn on the left or right side of the body.
An extremely versatile shape which fills the bra cup without unnecessary bulk when no auxiliary tissue has been removed in surgery. Suitable for younger women with firmer pectoral muscles.
Asymmetrical shapes provide a range of cup projection and profile in the bra from shallow to full, depending on the extent of the surgery. Underarm extensions fill and blend where surgery has removed tissue.
