Breast Prosthetics & Mastectomy Bras & Garmets - Wausau WIA Unique Website For Women With Special Needs
Breast Prosthetic Products Wisconsin
It is very important that all of our clients are offered a product that is not only comfortable to wear, but one that provides a suitable fit. The fitters at the Pink Ribbon are available for personal consultation at no charge for the following types of surgery:
Silicone breast prostheses come in several shapes, projections (profiles) as well as different weights and softnesses. Each style has been designed to help replace tissue lost after various breast surgeries while helping to match the remaining natural breast.
Partial breast forms, also called shapers, offer a solution for women who experience breast asymmetry after a lumpectomy or partial mastectomy, reconstruction, multiple biopsies, and even naturally. Surgery types, sites and the amount of missing tissue varies from woman to woman, therefore partials come in multiple shapes, sizes and thicknesses – and can be rotated to fill in where it’s needed most.
Lightweight foam breast forms are perfect for post-surgery, leisure and moderate activities. These soft foam forms come in a variety of shapes, weights and projections and are often cooler than silicone prostheses. Many women also like to use these with night wear to provide symmetry and confidence.
Swimforms accommodate a broad range of body types, and the hollow-back design keeps the breast form in place under water. These are safe to use in the swimming pool, salt water, hot tub or spa.
Accessories such as adhesive nipples, foam and silicone shoulder cushions, bra extenders, and “Little Secrets” breast enhancers which instantly create fullness and cleavage are available at the Pink Ribbon. We also carry Sliquid Organics™ – a glycerin and paraben free lubricant to aid with vaginal dryness.
Post Mastectomy Products & Services WI
Did you know that 8 out of 10 women wear bras that do not fit properly? Every good fitter knows that the fit of the bra is the most important element of the post-breast surgery fitting. At Pink Ribbon we measure and assist you in finding the best style and size to meet your needs. Here you will find bras that offer everyday confidence and comfort, fashionable styling and allow for an active lifestyle.
When fitting, there are three distinct shapes which describe profile:
1. The shallow profile is most often seen on the mature woman with soft breast tissue where the breast tissue drapes in the lower cup of the bra.
2. The average profile woman usually has firm breast tissue and a round profile. This woman has an equal amount of breast tissue on the top and bottom of the breast, with a more round appearance in the upper cup area.
3. The full profile has the most round appearance. This woman requires a bra that provides not only bottom cup support, but also containment, separation and coverage for the upper part of the breast. In some cases the full profile can actually be broad without much projection.
All of our bras have discreet, multi-option pockets. These hold the breast form securely in place so that it won’t slip out or show over the top of the cup, giving the wearer additional peace of mind. Our collection of beautiful intimate apparel includes bras that have molded cups, soft cups, seamed or seamless, front or back closure, and strapless. We carry bras that are functional, sporty, seductive and elegant – in other words, at Pink Ribbon you can find a perfect solution for every occasion.
