The Advantages of buying quality breast forms

http://www.thebreastformstore.com/breastforms.aspx

This site gets tons of email, up to 1500 a day. They range on a variety of topics from advice, crisis's, personal stories and even complaints or praise for Transgender products used by the community. If I get too many complaints about a business or product than their links on here get dropped. Some companies though are everything they claim to be and more and really are dedicated to our community. Such a business is the Breastform Store which has served the Transgender community since 1993. I ordered from this company many years ago and was happy with my experience. Others apparantly are happy too as this is one of the few that we have never had a complaint about. In addition this store is one of our supporters here.

As most of you are aware almost every product out there has been copied with a low quality cheap version by other companies and even countries like China and others. Within the last few years dozens of these knock-off products have been recalled. Some are even hazardous. Toys with lead paint are just one example. You can bet that the materials used are not the same as the original which had tons of testing and research done in product development. Copycats don't go through this process. Often the cheap products look identical. However their quality is sub-standard. A few years ago there was A chinese make-up company selling cheap knockoff cosmetics and lipsticks laced with harmfull chemicals such as lead. Even Chinese dogfood was making pets sick.

Quality and safety matters especially when a product comes in close contact with your skin and costs more than a hundred bucks. What if the product oozes harmful oils and chemicals that gets absorbed into your skin? This can happen with some Chinese breastforms sold on ebay. It's best to buy from reputable dealers that use recognized name brands that have been safety tested. The Breastform store is very reputable as well as being dedicated to our Transgender Community.

I have purchased breast forms on two occasions from Nancy at the Breast Form store. She is very helpful and I love the forms. For me I can't feel like a woman without weighted silicone breast forms.

The one thing I enjoy besides panties are the feel of breasts and the thought that I could have been reached puberty and have had real breasts but alas that was not the case, so having breast forms and the weight and feel is the closest I will get and whatever the cost it is well worth it, so thank you Laura for this great suppler that helps make my life complete....

I have purchased several pair of breast forms from on-line stores and was always pleased with the result until I was fitted with a pair when I had my first transformation done. They were very high quality (more expensive than I wanted to spend) but had to have them when I felt the difference. They moved with me, appeared very natural and made me feel even more feminine! Didn't want to ever take them off! They were worth the $'s.

I have only purchase one pair. But this was after months of seaching and trying to decide. I was actually trying to be cheap. Finally, I broke down a bought a $150 pair of 44D's, and they weigh 2.5 lbs each. And oh, do they feel real! The shape, the nipples, etc, are great! And the weight feels OH SO REAL! I used to stuff a bra with t-shirts, etc., and though it felt sexy, this is the best ever! I have real breasts now! I suggest with going with heavy silicone!

Yes I just love mine even tho they were 150 dollars they are worth it. I have 42 c and am so excited at looking down at my chest and feeling so natural when out in public. I feel more confident that I pass so well and no longer get strange looks from ppl. They move and giggle and can now wear so many different kind of tops that I couldnt before. I have even used the glue without a bra under a halter top and just love it. Should have done this years ago girls

I bought mine (two sets) from the Breastform store too! I agree, the heavy silicone ones are the best I ever tried, and I started with a folded sock and a little tissue!

My only gripe is that mine tend to shift around, probably due to a poorly-fitted bra. I used to use medical-grade adhesive to keep them in place, but it seems that brand has been discontinued and I cannot find any substitute that won't harm my forms. I ought to ask Nancy about that sometime!

Love

I have had a few good quality breastforms before, i used holister medical adhesive but i find that tends to make them dirty fairly quick. i was probabily putting too much on them though. I need a new set now so saving up the pennies, its definately worth it to spend a good amount and get a quality pair.

Link to post

Pam, do get a better fitting bra. My forms also came from Nancy at the breastform store. I just bought a new bra and increased the cup size by one size. It made all the difference in the world in how my forms look, feel and stay in place. As I posted earlier today I can't wait to spend five days 24/7 wearing my forms in this new bra.

I am not ready to drop $150 on breasts yet, I'd rather spend that on shoes and stockings!

I made a set of my own out of balloons and Knox Gelatin. If you use enough (4 ounces per quart of water) you can get to the consistancy of Balistics Gel which aproximates human flesh for bullet tests. The only downside is you need to form them to you while warm and leave them on for a while to get them to shape right. I need to reheat mine and reset them while wearing a frumpier bra.

My recipie for breasts.

Get the large box of Knox unflavored gelatin, 8 ounces.

Mix the gelatin with cold water in a large container you can pour from.

Let set for 15 minutes or so to proof.

Heat in the microwave for a few minutes, watch for boil over. Dont let it get too hot, maybe 110 F or so.

Pour the proper volume into a two liter bottle. 500 for A cup, 600 for B, 700 for C and 800 for a D. More if you want to look like Dolly Pardon. I've got two sets now. One that fills a C nicely and one that is Dolly sized. Depends on how I feel that day as which set I use.

Place one ballon inside the other, blow the inner balloon up to about the sise you want the breast to be adjusting for the fact that this is round and you will be flattening one side. It's a bit of guess work but ofr ten buck of Gelatin you can afford to screw up.

Put the blown up ballon mouth over the mouth of the 2 liter bottle. Hold tight. I recomend doing the rest of this in a large bowl with a lid over it just in case. It took me an hour to get all the gelatin off the counter tops and I'm still finding bits here and there.

Tip the bottle over and let the gelatin displace the air in the ballon. If you guessed right this happens real fast and clean. ALl the gelatin will be in the ballon.

CAREFULLY let out any extra air as you take the balloon off the bottle and tie it when all that is in it is gelatin.

Refill 2 liter bottlle and repeat for number 2

Let them set a bit to cool to skin temp so they are comfortable to wear.

Slide them in your bra and adjust as needed. If you did it all right they will form a fairly good breast. Let them cool completly while you wear it and if your bra is a good frumpy no cleavage model they will look fine in a bra. They wont be able to wear for cleavage or anything like that but for an short term deal until you get the scratch for a good set, far better to do this than buy cheep forms.

good luck

I bought some breast forms recently and they were quite cheap. But well worth the money. Just having that shape with in my tops was worth it. Great if you are on a low budget or just trying. Really gives you confidence. I want the next size up and I can't remember where I got them. Doh. Will have to check my credit card statement. Mind you, after Laura's advice I may just save up. ;-)

Guest MrMxyzptlk

I've been looking at the cheep ones too but I've done enough monster makeup with latex to know I can make better ones for less. Now the real good ones, I can't replicate those. So I'm holding out for buying the top of the line later, for now I am making them myself.

Guest Prettypolly1389

Wow what a site. So much choice and the look leally, leally real. I am going to start saving, but which size??? I am thinking a C cup!

Guest MrMxyzptlk

The thing to do is reverse engineer your dimentions. The one thing you have standard is the waist and chest. you want the hips to be about as broad as the shoulders and that willgive you hip dimentions. Then try to figure a cup size that makes your bust measure about the same as the hips. Otherwise you look sort of mishapen. I made a set of D cups and am regretting it. my hip measurement is too small for Ds so I need ot remake some Cs and get new undies.

Not a problem. It takes a bit of research and a lot of effort to pass it seems. I'm a bit of an inventor so coming up wit padding and such isn't a problem. I came up with pads that hang down from the bra straps and rest just right to start and stop hips right where they need to be. For now my waist is a 42 and my hips are a 48. My chest is a 46 so with D cups I get too busty for the hips. Took a lot of observation to figure out where those darned things start. Now I've got real hip dimentions that match my shoulder width so I look more hourglassly when I wear a pencil skirt. I may get some stretch capris just to see what that looks like over my artificial curves.

Like I said before though, getting cup size down is tough. I wen't for D's thinking that I'm 6 foot 1 and big women seem to have big curves. That's a big mistake. I observed more tall women and saw that they just look top heavy with too much there. Thus my quest for C cups now. I think that will bring my dimentions to real world instead of looking like Jessica Rabbit...

My problem is trying to reduce the art of makeup to a science. I just can't seem to get the hang of it yet. Well, practice, practice, practice...

I tried some out today over lunch. I think I've got the right shade of foundation, I do wish they would standardize those things. One company says "Honey Normal" and it's almost my right tone, another company uses the word "honey" and it makes me look like a pewter doll... Grrr... I managed to amke myself look almost right. Took some pics, I will upload them to my photobucket site and make them available. I need a better camera than my cell phone though.

Still need to work on eye makeup. I keep looking like a racooon...

I will say, when they say have clean skin before starting, they ain't kidding. Yesterdays makeup and todays were like night and day and all I did was prep the skin with some cleaning pads. Be sure to do that first.

Tommorow AM I exfoliate! We shall see if that helps.

I think I've got my dimentions set fairly well now. I measured today and I've got a bust of 48 Waist 42 and hips 47. It looks about balanced I think. I want to get a good quality corset to get the waist to a 40 or 38. I've got some medical issues that make me look like a pregnant woman and it's all empty space that just needs to be rearanged. A corset will do wonders for my final numbers.

Good luck with your experiments.

Agree whole heartedly with buying quality breast forms. :agreed:

These are worth every penny (soon to be gone).

The modern silicone warms quickly to body temperature and they feel and look great. :blush:

Mine came from the BreasFormStore as well. Exceptional customer service.

you know, i'm kind of amazed youd notice something like that... but yeh, if you do it the mosat natural looking proportion for your shape and body type is always a good idea or it will look wrong. i notice dimensions and things like that because i do artwork, and so notice things from drawing figures. thats a very good post.

(yeh i know this isnt my "area" exactly but i popped in anyway! I just wanted to say, for best results, go with higher quality things, whatever they are, some kind of prosthetics, theyre safer and look better and feel better..

mom has prothetic breasts of different types because she had breast cancer so had a mastectomy, and some are too heavy... some are more natural. some kind of a soft silicon stuff.

Some of the home made ideas people come up with arent the best or safest... if you get something cheap it might not be the safest thing for your skin, so.. gotta take all that info account when you pick out these things.

some people have make their own, and use various materials.. foam/fiber and water inside silicone balloons in layers tend to be good for homemade ones, just make sure the "skin" layers thick and durable so it wont leak the water out..

some make forms out of plaster of paris or clay, to form silicone ones..

normal hardware silicon, but use the stuff thats not for sinks or baths-that type has chemcals in it to keep mildew and stuff away. probably not the best thing for skin. people generally wont notice them much if theyre in a bra, real boobs dont move alot anyway. just keep them clean and dry and safe. corn starch is safe for on skin, and to treat heat rashes if you get them.

i think thats all i got to say bout that... :)

Hi,

I'm back into dressing again after a 4 years lapsus where I was forced to purge everything I had, which was not much but some interesting items nonetheless.

I want to comment on the EXCELLENT service I got from TheBreastformStore. Eden and Nancy went above and beyond what would be expected from sales and service persons. They answered my every need and, boy, did I had questions !

I didn't want to get something that I wasn't certain would fit my needs. I went with the Amolux Diamond and I'm VERY satistified with them. Being new at this, I had to summon the courage to shave my upper torso though and I'm glad I did.

I only dress in lingerie and not the complete outfit and have no plans to go beyond that. I bought TWO sets of Amolux, size 10 and finaly 14. Those are certainly big but they fit my body just so.

The good part is that I work mostly from home, so I can dress anytime I want. When going to clients sites, underdressing is something I currently, and slowly, explore.

This comment is made to make anyone who would consider TheBreastformStore as an option to feel well about them. They certainly take care of their customers and it shows.

Thanks Eden and Nancy, you've made a believer out of me !

There doesn't seem to be any discussion of alternative to silicone breast forms. I must admit I don't have any experience of Silicone forms.

I always thought that silicone forms looked like plastic bags filled with gel and having welded edges which keep in the "stuffing. As I said before I haven't actually used them or seen or touched them so I am speaking from ignorance.

The breast forms I use, and I only have one pair, are made from a rubbery material similar to that used in Fleshlights if you know what that is.

The breasts weight seems to be about correct and they weigh the cups down nicely so that the bra is more comfortable to wear. They feel real and warm to the body as silicone ones seem to do. The prices are not too exhorbitant either. From £60 upover. The web site I got them from is;-

[Link Removed]

Their site is easy to navigate and it has a calculator which calculates which model of breast form to buy. You only have to to input your chest size, the amount of existing breast tissue you have (in my case little or no breast tissue) and the cup size you would like to be. In my case I found it to be quite accurate. The site has a video of a form being run-over by a car and it wasn't damaged so I am looking forward to long use from them.

The rear of the form is naturally sticky so it tends to stick to a hairless chest. If you require more security or wish to wear them without a bra then they suggest the use of medical spray adhesive. The nipples are moulded into the form and can be pierced for jewellry if you require it

Any disadvantages? Yes two that I can think of

1) They have a sweet smell which doesn't seem to disappear. It isn't a nasty smell so for me it isn't a real problem.

2) I have purchased the tear drop shape which tapers to quite thin where it meets the skin. It isn't normally problem, but I found out that if you sleep in them with a black bra which is new, the black die seems to be absorbed into the thin part. Again no problem for me as I use bras which fully cover the forms or I place the tapered bit under the armpits, the alternative position.

The advantages of using a form is mainly the realistic appearance when dressed en femme. My wife is surprised at how realistic I look and feel in the chest area. She quite often holds her hand up in front of her to mask my face and is astounded how much my body looks like a womans. She covers my face as I do not make a pretty woman! Unfortunately which I believe is common to other forms they do not make a cleavage. I have tried gaffer tape etc to make a cleavage in the way I have seen on the internet, but for me it doesn't work so higher necked tops is a must.

I am new to the forum and it is obvious that most members are from the USA . There must be an equivalent in America. If not they will post to other parts of the world.

I hope this also helps the few members from the UK.

      @Samantha2020thank you so much for joining the group and for being so open about your struggles and your journey ❤️ I can identify with much of it as well. I really felt for you as I read it and I am so proud of you for taking the steps you have and for joining TP. Please feel free to reach out to us and to post as you need to as it does help to chat with others in this process. We also have a Christian channel on here if you are interested in chatting with others in our faith community there.

      Puerto Rico has not been treated well by the rest of the U.S. and struggling people who have been kicked around by those who should help them start looking for others to blame for their struggles, we know the blame is on the U.S. agencies who withheld economic and direct aid, but they can't kick mainland Federal agencies around, so it is the weakest who are the whipping boys and girls.

      @CD RachelHi! It's https://community.qchristian.org/ QCF is an affirming Christian organization of LGBTQ+ people and has its own forums site. I was told about it by a friend of mine who has volunteered for them before and also Kathy Baldock's and Matthew Vines's work (both Christians). If you join, I am on there by the same user name as here. I would love to connect to more believers here or there. I think it helps us in the process to see and hear others who love Jesus and are not straight and who also know he loves us so ridiculously much too! ❤️

      (I know I'm nerding myself out with this answer, and most won't get the reference, but...) Major Kusonagi has a way via advanced prosthetic shell, but you have to live in a futuristic cyberpunk fiction. Upside though, is you also get invisibility. I'm on the waiting list.   In other news...I've now joined the trans-ranks and decided that face masks are seriously awesome ...I was just at the grocery store earlier this evening, I wasn't even trying to pass, but I still got accidentally correctly-gendered!!! I guess my long wavy hair (definitely my favorite feature right now by far...heeehee), zircon earrings, overweight "moobs", and face mask covering up most of my beard must've been enough to tip the scales. Considering I've been feeling rather self-doubty/impostor syndrome this week, that surprise just absolutely made my day!   I was in the checkout line, nobody behind me, just one guy ahead of me but he had already paid and was putting his bags in his cart. As the cashier (a really adorable college-aged young gal) was scanning my items, another employee came by to start bagging my items. I guess the bagger must've gotten confused and started trying to hand my bags to the previous customer because as I was going through my wallet, I heard the cashier girl say "Oh, those are his"...but then she quickly stopped and corrected herself..."Er, I mean hers".   "Hers"??!?!?   There was nobody else around she could've been talking about except me. My heart just about leapt out of my chest and I was just on cloud nine all the way out to the car, like I'd just won the lottery or something. Of course, all of a sudden I couldn't bring myself to use my voice any more than absolutely necessary. Instant voice dysphoria, but you know what, in this case, I'll take it!   @ElizabethStar OMG, congrats so much on all that validation!!! 🎉  And also on your birthday, too! 🍰   I may be technically "out" to my mom, but I still haven't felt like I'm at a point yet where I'd feel right asking her to switch pronouns for me. So I can imagine just how special getting a card like must be. So happy for you!!!  
    • ElizabethStar
      It's too late for coffee but.......   For some reason I was compelled to check the mail today. Not surprising there was a birthday card from my mother. I just figured it was the normal everyday card but it wasn't. The first word I read, in a big scripted font was "Daughter". Right there in front of me, a card from my mother, to her daughter. Honestly I didn't really know if my mother would ever truly accept me. Now...I do. I really wanted to cry (not in front of the wife) but I will cherish that card forever.   Before dinner I found myself out getting lottery tickets. The jackpot is somewhere around 6-700mil. The ATM is broken at the first store I went to (closest to my house) and won't let you pay for 'em with a debt card. A random customer piped-up and suggested where I could go. I headed out. The cashier there was extremely friendly, very helpful and kind of cute. When I was checking out he looked at me, in a sweet little voice, said "I know *****'s no your name, what is it? I just replied "Elizabeth". He then tells me what beautiful name I have. After he said that I did hear anything else. Holy crap! Did I just get hit on? or was he just flirting with me? When I told my wife she used what is becoming her standard reply, "This is what you asked for". What I asked for? Yeah...well, we'll talk about that at a later time. If it's what she has to do to settle with my transition so be it.   After dinner I got another happy surprise. For kicks I checked my work email. There was a message from HR. He asked me if I wanted my new insurance and benefits cards to have Elizabeth on them. We can do that? I'd love that. There have been a few things getting to me lately and I needed some love.

      Well I’m sitting here trying not to ugly cry. The calls to my Dad and brother went amazingly well. My brother said it didn’t bother him and he was glad I was taking steps to be happy. Dad almost immediately offered to help cover therapy and HRT med costs. Said he loved me and that would never change. He did say that he wouldn’t stop calling me his son, though given his age and the way he was raised I didn’t really expect him too.

      Well my Endo got my message and was going to see about getting a hold of my Pharmacist. NO word yet. Hurry up and wait is the thing.   Still no word on the job front. No call back on the evidence specialist and no call for an interview for the analyst position. I am starting to get disheartened. I know I can't. I guess I will keep plugging along. On day at a time.   I am dreading going back to work tomorrow. I know half way though my shift my back will be killing me. Anyone know a way I can have  my brain put in the body of a 23yr old female but she has to be hot.   Kymmie

      Mine does too. She'll hug me and say I love you even though I don't understand. I thought that was fine until I learned she doesn't want to understand.   I know once I move it will be hard on me since even with all the BS I still love her dearly. Kymmie

      It is 5:30 PM my time.  8 years ago at this time I had been taken to my room after GCS by Dr. Bowers at Sutter Hospital in San Benito CA, just outside of San Francisco.  I had been cleared to order dinner from the hospital kitchen, the food was actually good when it got there, but a wet beef burrito, miso soup, non-fat milk, and fruit cocktail for desert is not what most people would envision as their first meal of a new body, but it was good.  About twenty minutes before I got to the room, I had been in the Recovery ward, and in my haziness of coming out of the anesthetic I had had a dream of being in my parent's oldest car with them begging them to stop and pull over so I could pee. A few moments later it seems they connected my catheter to its collection bag and the dream and bladder discomfort ended.  I have one coming to picture that shows my legs under a blanket spread apart by a couple of ice bags on the swollen area and I see this in almost all of the "immediately after" pictures of my other Postie friends.  I call it Post Op Leg Position, but it is real and seen nowhere else.  I am happy it happened, but there were some rough times in the months to come, but by my first anniversary they were in the books as simply some unique memories.  As I have written here in the Forums, I have learned several things.  No matter how well prepared for GCS you are it will still be far from a walk in the park.  It will affect your outlook on life differently than you once imagined.  It can be lonely at the wrong times.  You will learn what GCS DOES NOT DO for your life and other's lives.  I know now that it is wrong for me to encourage others to have the surgery when they are unsure it is right for them, but once they know it is right, they can count on me for full support.  I have visited others and been with their families and friends as they are coming out of surgery many times, and those times help me with any small lingering doubts I have had to know I did the right things and it is wonderful and not the grotesqie horrors our H8ers imagine for us and about us.  It is my second BD celebration of this month.
