The Advantages Of Buying Quality Breast Forms

Recommended Posts

Guest notsure2015

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 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.

      PSL, Sweaters and boots, what's not to love? I did some retail therapy this week, waiting for my haul of 2 plaid shirts, a long sleeve tee, a sweater and pink plaid flannel pj bottoms to arrive now. It's the start to the fall/winter wardrobe build.   Me too!

      Congrats @HollyNoel! That's great news. Hope you have a winderful day!

      @Berni I think everyone experiences doubts and I gave them a lot but there are a lot of people like you met out there and always will be. You got to keep working on not letting their ignorance affect you. You own you feelings and you can remind yourself that and not let others allow you to be hurt. Yes I think it will always be there but the more you are aware of it the?less it will give you anxiety. When you identify the problem you can disarm it.

      This happens to me too.  Earlier on when I was more clock-able I built up a pretty thick skin towards these things. But as I progress and pass more often (thank you face mask) I get clocked far less often, I relax more, let my guard down more, enjoy life more. Still all it takes is the one person out of a hundred to give me a second look to shake me to my core. I try to remember the good things that have happened: the cashier that called me young lady, the soccer-mom that gave me a smile as she walked by, the guy who held the door for me, the times I didn't get clocked using the rest room,..... I still find myself replaying events in my head late into the nights trying to understand what it was that happened. Truth is I'll never know. Maybe the wind messed my hair right before I walked in the door, maybe I rubbed my eye without realizing and look like a raccoon, Maybe their lives are so horrible they have to exploit flaws in everyone else whenever they can to validate their own existence.   I think we are all emotional stronger then we give ourselves credit for.

      This is going to be my first autumn/winter. I'm looking forward to finding some new looks.

      My question for this evening is : will I ever stop questioning?   I'm seeing my therapist tomorrow and it's what I plan to discuss, but some insight from people here would be very welcome.   So, I had a good day turn bad day a few days back.  Most of the day I felt really confident. Makeup good. Hair great. It was warm (30C), so I was in my favorite shorts and sandals  and beneath the tshirt my A cup breasts were pretty obvious and kind of perky.   I was walking through a shopping centre and a couple, walking hand in hand, came towards me. I could immediately tell the woman clocked me and I thought I heard her stifle a laugh.   Stupidly, I turned to check and noticed her whisper into her boyfriend/husband's ear. They both turned, looked at me and laughed.   At the time, I brushed it off and forgot about it. Or so I thought.   Late that night, and  again the following evening, I had such an anxiety attack. "What am I doing!?!" I kept asking myself. Each attack ended after a while  and I returned to normal .. but my confidence was really shaken   I thought I was past this!   Does this ever go away?

      Hi @Brianna66. Definitely not too old! I'm 56 and 5 months HRT. I started electrolysis at your age and was growing out my hair. I too felt I was a girl inside my whole life. I'm so glad i set her free.

      Among the dreaded COVID virus, fires, economic ruin and death, I thought I'd take a stab at interjecting a little humor. My daughter sent this to me last night. It took me a second to get it, only because I didn't recognize J.K.'s face.      For those who suffer from poor facial recognition, The answer is "Surf and TERF"

      I had similar hormone levels, don't know if estrogen was really high, but it was above the range that's typical. Testosterone was low but in the typical range.    Since we're starting around the same time I guess we can be anecdotal evidence for how it plays out.

      I could wear that skirt! Fall (autumn) for me is the time between bare legged summer and fleecy tights winter when I wear normal tights, and have to keep an eye on them for holes lol. It tends to be very variable but here winter is not usually that much colder than some fall days, for the most part, so it can be tricky to select the right clothes. That is fairly usual with UK weather altogether. This year I am buying little as I am not going out much for obvious reasons.   Tracy

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Lee.  I like the fact that you are being careful about the HRT and are seeing a therapist.  That's the right approach.  Please look around the forums, and I'm certain you'll find a lot of useful topics.  We'll be here to help if you have any questions.  Best of luck on this exciting new part of your life.  It is a wonderful thing to finally be who you were meant to be.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie
