Types of Breast Forms
Breast forms come in many shapes and sizes, depending on what you need.
- Upper left: Special mastectomy bras have built-in pockets to hold full or partial breast forms in place.
- Upper right: Some full breast forms have an adhesive backing so that they stick to the skin. They can be worn with a regular bra or without a bra.
- Bottom: Prosthetic nipples stick to reconstructed breasts that don't have nipples. They can also be stuck onto a breast form that doesn't have a nipple.
