Go backAmoena’s Top Fashion Tips
A collection of fashion and beauty tips we’ve shared over the years
2015 marks Amoena’s 40th anniversary, and to celebrate, we’ve gathered up a new list of some fashion tips we’ve shared through the years. Whether you’re new to Amoena or have been with us for a long time, we have advice for you!
It’s all about the band: Following bilateral surgery, women often wear a bra band size that is far too small, thinking that having it very tight will help it stay in place even without breast tissue. But if the band size is too small, the shoulder straps will also be too small, the cups will be in the wrong position on the body, and the bra will “ride up.” Be sure to be fitted by a certified fit specialist!
Cool as a cucumber: One way to keep cooler in warm weather is to choose a bra with a high cotton content. Another option is a bra designed with COOLMAX® ACTIVE fabric, which includes wicking technology.
Show your true colors: Spice up any look you choose with a lovely color underneath. Your bra and panty sets can bring a splash of color and confidence into your life.
Create a flexible wardrobe: The most useful pieces in any wardrobe are the ones that can be used multiple ways. The Barbara bra with convertible – or removable – straps is a great example that will work for a variety of different dresses, like halter tops, spaghetti straps, or totally sleeveless.
Fill in with style. A camisole bra means you can get away with a lower neckline because its lace insert makes it look like part of your outfit. Another option: layering a tank top like Amoena’s Valletta under your cardigan, denim jacket, blouse or dress can give your outfit a whole new attitude.
Even in sheers, your bra disappears: The right lingerie will disappear under sheer tops. The trick is either to blend your color by wearing a bra tone that matches your top, or choose nude. And remember, deeper-toned sheers and busy prints help provide camouflage.
Breast form tips:
Do your straps dig in? Ouch! The best way to avoid this fashion faux pas is by wearing a Contact adhesive breast form, because the weight of the form is distributed more evenly against your chest wall, and not all held up by the shoulder strap. Many women have been skeptical, but tried Contact and realized just how much lighter they feel!
Try the t-shirt test: Women who find that their 2 breasts differ in size or shape after reconstruction might also have problems finding a bra that fits well. Partial breast forms can help you achieve the outline you really want, and the tapered edges of Amoena Balance partial shapers join naturally to the body. Nothing shows. Even in a tight top you will not notice any difference – and no one else will, either (even during a hug)!
Mark your calendar. It’s so important to be measured regularly, to make sure your bra and breast form are still the right size and shape for you. Bodies change constantly as we lose or gain weight, and as we age – but your posture and comfort are a big part of your overall health. Getting measured yearly will ensure your bra and form fit properly – and everything else should fall into place after that!
Very pleased by CC After losing a little weight my 3S Breast Form was looking too full. The 2S is perfect and the perfect weight, I always forget I'm wearing a breast form.MRS by M H VERY PLEASED WITH MY NEW BOOBS AND GREAT SERVICE
Breast form by LW Very comfortable to wear, fits nicely into bra pocket. Looks and feels natural.Amoeba breast form by MH Really comfortable fit. My first breast form was Amoena - the same as this one - and lasted for 7 years. This is the reason I purchased the same one again. So natural looking.Everyday comfort by E E I have lymphoedema and I've had a double mastectomy. This breast form has been my favourite for some time now. Drapes naturally and the lighter weight makes it comfortable to wear all day.Everyday comfort by EE Delivered promptly. This breast form is so comfortable especially as I'm a bilateral with lymphoedema. The weight and fit are just perfect. A very happy customer.
Beaucoup de légèreté by Annie CLEMENT Bonjour, J'ai acheté cette prothèse il y a deux mois. Et elle m'a changé la vie, car beaucoup plus légère que mon ancienne environ 360 gr de moins. J'en arrive à oublier que j'ai une prothèse ce qui ait appréciable.Natura Xtra Light 2SN Breast Form by FD I was getting shoulder pain with a normal weight breast form. This is definitely lighter. It is very wide but this does give wider spread than the normal breast form, and so sits more comfortablyComfortable fit by IS First fit, still using pocketed but so much better than kapok filled forms.
Amoena breast form by Gill Campbell Very pleased with the extremely efficient service and prompt delivery as well as the quality of the breast form (I've always had Amoena since my mastectomy over 21 years ago)Amoena Breast Form by T I As I've lost some weight, I needed a slightly less full breast form. My previous one was the symmetrical, and was very good. But I thought I'd try the asymmetrical one and it's just perfect.Natura by AM The parcel was delivered promptly beautifully presented in a soft bag,. The breast form fits my shape perfectly and is comfortable to wear inside my prosthetic bra
Perfect by AT This breast form is brilliant.It is so light and comfortable that you hardly know that you are wearing inside the bra. Would definitely recommendLightweight prosthesis by F M This is comfortable and gives arealistic shape but it is only 19% lighter than my standard NHS prosthesis, so describing it as "up to 30%" lighter raised false hopes.Comfortable by H Lightweight, comfortable. This is the 2nd one I've had & it lasted over 7 years. Why wash the form after every use as it is in a bra pocket. Only quibble seems expensive for a bag of silicone,
comfortable and realistic by JS When my four year old granddaughter snuggles into me and my breast form and says how cuddly I am, I know that it feels good both for the wearer and the cuddler!Brilliant by WD This breast form is light and comfortable. The slight shaping to the side is great if you've had some lymph nodes removed as well. It flattens naturally when you you lie down . I highly recommend.Comfortable by WD This may seem like a lot of money to pay for a breast form but believe me it is worth every penny. It is soft, light, comfortable and above very natural feeling. You have to wear this every day so it’s really important to buy the right one.
