Becoming the Industry Leader

35 years of growth and innovation have made Amoena the industry leader.

Becoming the Industry LeaderAmoena was the first company to introduce revolutionary breast form innovations for breast cancer survivors. Unlike others in the industry, Cornelius was never satisfied with the status quo of breast forms. He continued to research ways to further innovate product design and comfort to create a form that felt more natural. In 1984, Amoena introduced a 2-layer breast form with a firm silicone ‘ring’ on the rear side to stabilise the form in the bra and a new shape that replicated the anatomy of a woman’s breast.
