The Advantages Of Buying Quality Breast Forms

I recently bought a pair of breast forms with an adhesive on the backs of them, and I haven't seen any information about taking care of them. Does anyone have any advice on maintains the adhesive?

If these are the silicone sticky forms, they should have had a plastic backing piece on them which you need to put back on them between uses.  If they start losing their sticky surface, wash them using a liquid face or hand soap all over, but put the backing on them, and when dry the sticky stuff will stick again.  If you have lost the backing, you can make a new one from plastic sandwich bags.  That will happen maybe 30 or 40 times before it wears out completely.  There are also the silicone strips that you can buy separately that will do the same thing after the original stuff does wear out.

I bought my breast forms from Janet's Closet. The first set was the Triangle Tatas in 48D these are silicon forms that can be glued on using the Hollister Medical Glue (which I prefer) or in the packet bras. With them being glued on you can actually feel the weight of the breasts pulling on the body and boy do they bounce like real breasts. The down side is that you cannot sleep with them on and when taking them off you have "Gently" peel them off as you can rip the membrane. I then bought a set of foam forms, I didn't like them. I then bought a set forms that you could sleep in. nice to wear but have to use a water based glue which runs when you perspire. 

I am in the process of putting up some money to buy a set of Aphrodites, these you can sleep in and are glued on using the medical glue.

I actually get mine from a German online store, which can be quite expensive but worth every penny. They sometimes also have them on eBay auctions, so when mine are getting tired, and they do last for years, I start to look out for the size and shape I like on their auctions, then set myself a top price limit and bid up to that. If I lose the auction, there is usually another in a day or so and I am able to get top quality (expensive) forms for a very reasonable price.

Here here Paula Playtex, I too don’t need breast forms, just over 4 months on hormone treatment and I’m spilling out of a B cup and into  a C cup ? my GP thinks I will top out around an E or F cup as my mother and 2 sisters are G, GG and H.

 

l love how mine feel now and how they sit when I’m lying in bed x 

 

i just dont want my ariolas to get much bigger, they already look huge x

I wish we had an eBay or online anything at the time I was really interested in these breast forms.  Back in the 80's, I bought nearly every type of foam, weighted foam, and silicone breast forms that were available.  The only type I never tried was the silicone forms that stick temporarily onto your chest.  They were advertised as feeling like real breasts when you walk.  I used to buy my forms at a local prosthesis shop here in the. Seattle area and they always steered me away from these.  Their main reason was that I was upfront with them and let them know that I wanted to be able to sleep wearing them too.

 

Over the years, I had spent a fortune on different sizes of the silicone forms because no  matter what price point they were at, they always started leaking after a year or so due to the weight of sleeping while wearing them (I sleep on my stomach).  I'm curious if anyone else ever tried the silicone "stick on" breast forms?  It's too late for me to try them now but I'm wondering if I missed out when I was younger.

Hi Susan.  I have various forms, but my favorite that I wear daily are the “natural stick “ silicone forms. Very happy with them.

My go-to forms are "Pals."  They are soft like silicone but they won't leak because they are not a gel.  They are also great for sleeping, because you can't burst them or damage them.  In fact, they can even be cut or trimmed to obtain the perfect shape.  I love them.

 

Hugs,

I bought a pair of C-cups from Boobsshop, I absolutely love them. They look and feel realistic, but I would never have imagined how hard it can be to keep the velcro in Place. 

 

But every problem has its own solution I guess.  :)

I have had a few sets from the Breast Form store and always loved the feel.

Don't cheap out with items like this buy quality and you will have many years of use out of them.

I have one set I have had for 12 years and they are still in great shape.

I guess one shouldn't feel blessed to have gynecomastia but I'm sitting here in a lovely unpadded underwire brassiere with seamless C cups that are filled with MY breasts.  I've definitely looked a breast forms over the years, perhaps indulging my fantasies without making an investment, either in forms or brassieres.  But this year I tried a few brassieres from E-Bay and discovered that a good underwire brassiere puts everything where it belongs.  I'm not especially overweight, so this is doubtless the combination of gynecomastia and diminished testosterone that has come with getting older.  I guess in this one department I should be grateful for small miracles.  I certainly enjoyed the feeling of a brassiere on my breasts this afternoon as I ran errands... wearing an over shirt, of course.  They were my little secret...

hi gals!

 

im new here but i found this thread right off the bat.

 

i used to use rice in a stocking and while they werent terrible they werent ideal.  biggest drawback is as they warmed and i started to sweat, they smelled.  like rice.  cooking...

 

i purged those with all of my clothes and lingerie and shoes about 5 years ago.  im slowly adding stuff back but i dont really want to go as far with it as i had been but i wanted nice boobs so i got a pair at Janet's Closet dot com.

 

hope i dont get in trouble for naming a business but they do a bang up job with CDs and TGs. 

 

the only real drawback to the breast forms on the market that i can tell is the silicone is too hard.  most women's breasts are NOT as firm as these seem to be.  oh, if id had a girlfriend or two in school who had boobs like these, id have been in heaven!  id like to have a more pliable substance but yes, PROPER forms are very important!

So at least they smelled nice? Maybe not what I would have picked for a fragrance... I naturally smell of vanilla apparently... but it's not a BAD smell.

 

That's a good point about the silicone used in breast forms, my natural (if tiny) breasts are soft. My spouse's breasts and all the other breasts I've encountered in the wild, also soft. I'm told that implants can have that firmer texture to them, but I've never encountered any personally.

 

Finally, a point of etiquette: We have a bunch of differently gendered people on the site and we like to be inclusive. If you can, please try to use more gender inclusive language in your posts. "Hi Friends" at the beginning of your post would have been lovely.

 

In any case, welcome to Transgenderpulse! We're glad you're here!

 

Hugs!

      That was very entertaining and informative, Jandi.  Thank you for posting it.  I have to admit I'm pretty much done with the whole J.K. Rowling bit, but this was better than most.   Carolyn Marie

      As far as I know the Orthodox Jewish hierarchy (Rabbis and such) do not accept transgender Jews.  How they feel about transgender gentiles is unknown to me.  I have had very little dealings with the Conservative wing of Judaism, but of those contacts I have had most were polite but standoffish.  The Reform wing is very accepting and tolerant, amazingly so.   I do know that trans men have been barred from praying at the Western Wall in Jerusalem if it becomes known to those in charge.  Like @Charlizesaid, the orthodox of most any religion are very set in their ways and slow to change.  That doesn't mean they can't change, but it just takes much longer.  I don't envy your position, Audrey, but you never know about individual attitudes.  There was a very orthodox Catholic in my office, and I expected some hostility when I announced my transition.  But he was very accepting and kind.  We are often the first trans person folks have ever met, and when faced with someone they know who's taken that big step, hearts do soften.  I've seen it happen many times.  So please don't discount that possibility.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      I don't know if anyone here watches ContraPoints Youtube, but this is a link to her latest video regarding J.K. Rowling's trans issues.   It is pretty long, and she is not always "safe for work" as they put it.  But it might be interesting to some.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gDKbT_l2us

      Yes I’m hoping the E goddess friends me soon.  I was on Spironolactone for a year, and Progesterone for nine months before my left nipple showed any signs of life.  That’s when my  endocrinologist gave in and put me on E. Not quite 3 months on that along with the other two. Almost the next day my right nipple woke up.  They both still hurt. I will say I think there has been shape change but not size.  More feminine perk, less male flop.   on another note, saw my foot doctor today because of the wet episode yesterday.  The nurse took out my stitches, and sent me to x-ray. No sooner were the X-rays up when in walked the doctor. Looked everything over and decided I was good, healing nicely x-rays showed everything was as it should be.  Told me stay with the boot and the scooter.  I could take the boot off in bed and I could shower but not soak my foot.  All that and three days early!     This girl would do a happy dance but it would end up one footed hopping until I fell on my face.  😃   happy hugs   Willow

      My preferences have not changed.  i like men and am flattered when they are attracted to me but i have never been attracted to them.  There is no reason to change that once one transitions.   I did have trouble with that concept years ago before i knew that the way i felt wasn't really weird or that i was some repressing my self as a gay man.  If anything i am a lesbian and have expressed that reality to several men when pressed.   Relax and be yourself!  Sexuality does not, as mentioned above, rule who we are any more than it does the cis gender community.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I use to play D&D 3.5ed and just got the Pathfinder figures just looked cool. I didn't like D&D 4ed. Love painting the new bones miniatures, did the Kickstarter and got a bunch of them cuz no basecoat needed. Did tons of White Wolf LARP including the older versions in college. Sadly the pandemic killed my physical gaming habits, use to go camping for free as an NPC for this one game held on a couple of different sites. Wanted to try the ones out in New Jersey, but will have to wait.😓 Might just go once as a plague doctor character then run off into the woods to hide from people.

      This is (still) me. Someday soon I hope I will feel less fearful in front of the camera. Working on that self-consciousness demon.   Four months into HRT (anniversary was yesterday), I mostly have extremely sore nipples and what might *barely* be called an A cup. I hope the estrogen goddess gives me her blessings in due time.   Back to work...   Love, ~Audrey.

      Yeah, funny that. I got real camera-shy about the same time puberty hit. Now? Yeah, take a picture. I look amazing.   Hugs!

      I think mine will still grow more. My nipples are still tender, and seem to get hard quite often. I have nice firm "A" breasts now.
