I looked at medical photos and read stories of other women with this deformity and realised that they looked exactly like me (chest-wise).
|I presented this to my doctors, most of whom hadn't even heard of this before since it's such an uncommon condition with so little known about it.
Solution: Wearing Amoena breast prostheses for Poland Syndrome
She wears Amoena now — and beautiful bras and tops
Living out loud with Poland Syndrome and breast forms
To my surprise, my post blew up with lots of likes and supportive comments and even many people finding me via the hashtag #polandsyndrome, telling me that they have it too. A few people who are in the public eye also came forward, and I won't give out anyone's name as it's something for them speak about once they're ready. But this gave me the confidence to buy a new swimsuit and not care that my chest was on full display.
|I remembered the name Amoena and searched their website to find so many beautiful bras and swimsuits and pyjamas. I thought that they were just made for people with breast cancer but I was 100% wrong! Their pocketed products work perfectly for me, they support my chest, are made from super comfortable materials and give me the chance to swim and wear lingerie without constantly checking and worrying that my boobs might have fallen out.|
For me, finding Amoena is one of the most memorable turning points in my life, knowing that I can now live without worrying about my chest or constantly having to be on the hunt for bras that don't support me properly. And I might not have even found out about their brand if the NHS hadn't given me an insert for my bras.
Knowing that their brand can have the same affect for so many other young girls out there worrying about their chests and that they're able to provide the NHS with products to be given to those girls, is why I support and recommend Amoena to anyone and everyone! Even people with two completely normal breasts can wear their beautiful bikinis and comfortable bras. It’s also gratifying that one of my favourite swimwear styles helps charities such as the Future Dreams foundation. Some swimsuits are even designed by Melissa Odabash herself!
As my body changes in my 20s, 30s and onwards I know that Amoena is a brand that I can always turn to for support (literally).
Growing teenagers should be made to feel confident and happy with themselves and be able to choose what they feel is "normal," and that is why I choose Amoena.

Homemaker by Susan I purchased the Amoena Essential 3S 363 breast forms. I have worn several other brands over the last 20 years, but these are the best. They have the same feel and weight as natural breast, I love the way they move with me, just the right amount of jiggle.Homemaker by Susan I purchased the Amoena Essential 3S 363 breast forms.

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.

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.
