Let's Talk About Uneven Breasts
Feel more comfortable in your clothes with a breast shaper that adjusts perfectly to your body.
To mark the launch of our latest breast shaper, we want to let women dealing with the issue of uneven breasts know: you’re not alone. We’re determined to raise awareness of breast asymmetry, and to help more women discover solutions. Silicone breast shapers like Balance Adapt Air are a gentle and non-invasive solution for restoring symmetry and rebuilding confidence after partial removal of the breast and in cases of breast malformation or degeneration.
Uneven breasts… it’s not the easiest thing to talk about. But, for many women after breast cancer treatment, it's a fact of life. Breast asymmetry often begins soon after the treatment and recovery process. As well as being emotionally challenging, uneven breasts can lead to physical difficulties when the asymmetry is very pronounced. In these cases, the difference in weight could possibly lead to poor posture, which in turn could cause tension in the neck, shoulders and back.

Why should I wear a shaper?
Breast asymmetry is a common challenge for women after breast conserving surgery or reconstruction following a breast cancer diagnosis. For many women, the asymmetry typically begins shortly after the treatment and recovery process and can have a serious impact on their quality of life.
Along with self-confidence issues, women can also suffer from tension and pain in the back, shoulder or neck caused by the weight imbalance. And many experience irritation and discomfort because their bras no longer fit the way they used to. A silicone breast shaper can be a great non-invasive solution for restoring symmetry and rebuilding confidence.

What is a shaper?
Simply put, shapers are silicone inserts you wear in your bra next to your skin to restore breast symmetry. There are many different sizes and shapes so we recommend you always seek out a professional fitter. Our shapers are produced in a high-quality silicone which provides an exceptionally natural fit and feeling. Additionally, our patented Comfort+ technology absorbs, stores and releases body heat to help regulate and balance fluctuations in body temperature for ultimate comfort all day.
Who can wear them?
Shapers are a popular solution among women:
- With natural breast asymmetry or breast malformation
- After breast-conserving surgery
- After multiple biopsies
- After a reconstruction with changes over time
- During expander therapy prior to a reconstruction
How do I get a shaper?
- First, make an appointment with your doctor and ask for a prescription. Shapers may be covered by your health insurance.
- Then find an Amoena retailer close to you and have a professional fitting.

How do I wear a shaper?
Wearing a shaper is easy and comfortable. You can wear it just inside a properly fitted bra directly against the skin. We recommend you wear an Amoena bra with a shaper. The unique design (higher cut at the front and sides) ensures that the shaper is kept in place.
The breast shaper that adjusts perfectly to your body
Balance Adapt Air is our most innovative shaper yet. It’s designed with an air chamber that makes it easy to adjust the shaper so it meets your needs. Simply use the pump to fine-tune the fit and volume of the shaper until it suits the natural curve of your breast and sits comfortably against your skin. Balance Adapt Air is especially suitable for you if you are dealing with an uneven scar area or uneven remaining breast, weight fluctuations or swelling due to lymphedema.

Why shapers are the solution
Today, 70 – 80 % of all breast cancer cases are treated with breast-conserving surgery. The tumor is removed in such a way as to preserve as much natural breast tissue as possible. Some women might decide they need additional surgery if the imbalance is more pronounced. But there is a simpler solution: breast shapers.
The extent and type of asymmetry differs from patient to patient. We offer you a comprehensive portfolio of shapers to meet specific needs, illustrated below.
We strongly recommend visiting a nearby retailer and making an appointment with a certified fitter who can help you find the right size and shape for your body.
