First Breastforms

Recommended Posts

I finally invested in first breastforms (previously I had borrowed them off other people) and I really like them. I was wondering, do any people have any tips for use or maintenance?

If you got silicone breastforms they hopefully came with a box with a plastic liner.  When you are not wearing them use that as a storage unit.  Mastectomy bras have pockets which keep them in place. Enjoy

I remember my first, They was my babies. (That sounds weird) Yoou got to look after the silicone ones. They can be quite fragile. So easy if you got nails to split them . I had to replace mine once in there lifetime because i caughtthe same one twice. They cannot take to much abuse.

 

I still have them but havent used them for about 3 years. They served there purpose at the time.

 

Marks and spencer for your masectomy bra with the the pockets. Or Asda  do a comfort bra. It looks like a sports bra. But has 2 inserts. You do need to sew up the cenre just to stop them shifting but it woks great and are Asda priced.  Product Code: 6392217

I find the triangular ones easiest to use as opposed to the teardrop shape. The triangular ones don't fit my pocket bra though. I don't know what you can get your hands on though, so experiment and see what looks best on you.

 

I had a very nice set of attachable forms that I donated to a friend. They were not compatible with growing breast tissue (Ow!). They were fun while they lasted though.

 

I rarely stuff just a year and a half later though. Just for special occasions so my advice would be that if you're planning on hormones, don't get a really expensive set. The cheaper alternatives are good enough and you won't be wasting, oh, $500 US on something you can only wear for six months.

 

If you're not planning on hormones though, go quality. The more expensive forms are tougher and will last longer. You could sleep in the aforementioned $500 pair for example. You can't do that with the "chicken cutlet" style inserts.

 

On the topic, I've got a friend that uses a breastplate design for her breast forms. That could be a good option if you want to wear something a little more revealing. I'd just thought she was brilliant with blending the edges when she let me in on her little secret. She's MUCH better with makeup than I am. She has better skin for it though. What can you do?

 

Hugs!

I like the triangular ones also.  They are cheap and look natural enough.

 

One question about the breast plate.  They look good, but how hot do you get while wearing one? I'd be dripping sweat in minutes.

My boobs are real, I have photos in the gallery. They came over a long period of time on hormones, 22 years. At this point in my non binary life I don't want them and keep them as suppressed as is comfortably possible in a tight leisure bra so there is no jiggle or pointiness. I just bought some Dimrs, silicone nipple covers as the nipple oglers out there piss me off no end. I would gladly give them to someone who could use them it it were at all possible..

I'd think so too. I texted him to ask, but he hasn't gotten back to me yet. I tried a latex under-thing once and while it wasn't as hot as you'd think, it wasn't comfortable. Then again, my skin is special-snowflake sensitive. It looks nice though.

She's been making some, ahem, big decisions lately.

 

NB Adult, I'm pigeon-breasted on top of all my other problems so I'd be absolutely tickled if they'd grow out to a nice B-Cup so that wasn't so obvious. I've still got about a year and a half before they're done and I hear a lot of girls get a growth spurt after their GRS, so hopefully I'll hit my goal. It's like I was telling my gym friends: "I don't have the advantage of genetics so I need to girl harder than you do."

 

Hugs!

Hugs! MtF breast development doesn't come the same as it does on teenage girls who develop fully in just a matter of a few years. I had minnies for a very long time on E before anything significant really happened.

<sigh> Yeah I know. Expected course of development is three years or so. I was a late bloomer the first time around. I have no reason to expect this time to be any different. Still, we all know the girl who went away for summer vacation and came back with D-Cups. I think on some deep level we all wish we were her. Part of the whole, "I had estrogen five minutes ago. I should have been a women for five minutes," mindset. It's a process. 😋

I used to buy the realistic silicon beast forms.  Some were very pricy others were much more affordable.  I would wear them to bed every nite. I constantly switched  to different pairs periodically and cared for them by keeping them in their protective boxes,  even then, I never had a set last longer than two years.  The seams would separate eventually and silicon would leak a little through my bra....a gooey mess to clean up too.  It was a necessary 'pain in my patootie' but apparently worth all the trouble because I continued to buy them...lol. One thing though that might change things for others who sleep with their forms...I sleep on my stomach so that made them more susceptible to wear and tear during the evening.

 

Congrats Krisvm on getting your first pair.  Enjoy them!

Hope it is okay to post. Here are my first pair in their bra. A little bigger than I was expecting but still look good and feels so great to have them on.

Hi Krisvm,

I have a couple of different forms. My favorite that I wear the most are not filled with any liquids. I am able to sleep with them on and not worry they will burst.  They look very natural and stick without using any tape or glue (although if going braless you would need to use an adhesive)..

I wear an underwire full coverage bra - a pocket bra won’t work for this form. 
 

I wash mine after each use, let them dry and place them on the cradle they came with.

 

BTW- you look great!

@Krisvm You look great! I'll bet you feel pretty good too. There's just something about being right... also I'm jealous as heck of your waistline. Work it girl!

I made my own breast forms. About a year and half ago, I bought a cute one piece negligee with breast cups for breast obviously. I did not like having to unbutton the middle to use the restroom, or how the cups rubbed my sternum because they're was nothing in them. So.... I found a drugstore near me sold a nylon 1 piece bra that slips over the head and fits like a normal bra. I then found an interesting solution at Target of all places. In their toy department was a section that sold Nerf style foam kids activity balls. I found a couple of balls that were called Dodge balls which are about 10 inch diameter. I bought 2 and cut 1 in half and cut the other one in 2/3rds. Voila, breasts. they fit fairly comfortably, they do make me look somewhat like a Barbie doll though. I don't care, as long as I had breast that for all intensive purposes look real.

      I've actually started T while still living with my parents, and they don't know I'm trans. I've always dressed in masculine ways, had short-ish hair, and enjoyed masculine activities more than feminine ones. I've never been a girly-girl, no matter how hard my Mom tried to make me one! I was able to blame most of the "masculinity" on sensory comfort since I'm on the autism spectrum (Asperger's), but I'm mostly in the closet as a trans man. I've told two close friends, some supportive coworkers, and a couple of distant relatives, but my immediate family still doesn't know.   I told my parents that I was starting T as an unconventional treatment for some medical conditions, since I knew voice changes would happen quickly and I didn't want to freak them out too badly. It worked. I sound almost as deep as my brother, and they just don't realize what's REALLY going on! My therapist and I are making a plan for telling them the truth when I don't have to depend on them financially anymore, and I'm really looking forward to doing so, but I know it won't be a comfortable discussion. It's why I'm still closeted. I'll have to tell them right before top surgery, I'm sure, which is when I'll be socially and legally transitioning (during recovery).   All that to say, yes, I started transitioning LOOOOOOONG before I came out.

      Yeah I knew from the start that was where you were headed, it's not her though, it's you! Look at your record, and we're suppose to underwrite what you are doing? I know the others here don't have the nerve to confront this sort of thing, I do and I want you to reconsider what you are doing and ask yourself if your marriage is just another convenience for you, or were you actually serious about the vows you took and did you actually love her at all? Think about it, you don't have to be embarrassed, we will support you if you are making any kind of effort to make it work. She married you for better or for worse, she's trying to make it work in spite of everything.
    • NB Adult
      Totally with you on that!

      ...then your invited to your wife’s room for an afternoon of sex.  For hours. I’m not going to kiss n tell but it was fabulous. It was loving and special and tender  It was also mostly lesbian sex.  (-what the heck-).  Talk about giving confusing signals.   Just when she has me resolved to eventually moving out due to “not wanting to be a lesbian In our marriage ” I get an afternoon like this.   I don’t need confusion right now.  Mixed signals.  I have no idea why or if she is just trying it to see or what.   For me  It is boiling down to she does not want me if I’m going to be the true me.  Which makes me very hurt and very angry.  Spurring on my pride to just end it.  But I won’t.  Not yet.   Im not ready financially to go out on my own.   Aaashhhhhrrrgggg.  I feel trapped.  
    • ShawnaLeigh
      I’m at a tipping point where I love her dearly and our home and life.  Ours plans for retirement but I am also ready for a positive change.  To find someone who can give me what I want and need.  I am tired of being the “guy” in our marriage and she is being so nice lately as my lady friend.  I am leaning towards moving on. Even if it starts on a low note.    Sorry for hijacking your post Toni.   but thanks just the same.  ❤️

      Personally, I’m also not the most “masculine” guy. I’m only about 5ft 1in too, which doesn’t help my situation, but my boyfriend and art classs are very supportive. I’m pre-op, and only half of my friends know that I’m trans. I’m absolutely frightened of telling the other half, especially my father, but those that know are very supportive and sweet and I love them dearly. Many have said that I’m nonbinary for how I dress, but I’m not. I love the color pink, think makeup is simply an expression of one’s self (but don’t think it’s for me as much as it’s fun for me to do for others) no matter one’s gender, and sing soprano in my music classes. I know that I most certainly identify as male, however, I don’t exactly follow many gender roles or standards that assign to the gender I identify as. I am a trans male, but I find that happiness comes when you yourself are most comfortable, not when making sure everyone else is with you. I can never say that I have experienced what you’ve gone through, and I hope that your situation will get so much better, but please know that there are people like you that care, that matter, and that will be here for you when you need them. Please take care of yourself. I hope the best is to come for you.

      I was sexually assaulted by a room mate's boyfriend,this was in mid 1999.My friend Julie whom I started being a room mate with had a boyfriend that wouldn't leave me alone.Had my eyes one me and I wasn't comfortable around him.He did it a few times.Once was when he was over and he touched my right breast loving it.Told me not to report it and I didn't.Second time was touching my right breast.I was at the kitchen sink getting a drink of water.Once again he warned me not to report it.Final straw was when he went up my skirt grabbing my genitilia.He laughed thinking it was funny.Julie saw something was wrong and we talked.I finally told her that her boyfriend sexually abused by her boyfriend.Her eyes lit up knowing there was something going on and I did report it.She did believe .me and was mad at him.She was shocked he had a couple sexual assault convictions on his record and a registered sex offender.Did dump him right away.I did get the help and been doing good ever since.He was found guilty of sexual assault and the judge threw the book at him giving him 25 years base on his record.

      I was only out to my stepmom for a very long time because my dad is military so I can understand. Also, come out only when you are ready, never force it. If they don't accept you, they don't deserve you. Have fun at that part, be you man.
