Achieve Symmetry with ABC's Shapers

Shapers, also referred to as partial breast forms or shells, are useful in a number of fitting applications where natural and/or reconstructed breasts are uneven. They are ideal for overall coverage, lumpectomies, reconstructions, uneven breasts, and enhancements. Used with either a pocketed or fashion bra, shapers can be placed as needed in the bra cup to fill in deficits, provide horizontal symmetry, or create a balanced projection.

ABC's line of shapers can help correct a number of imbalances while remaining undetectable underneath clothing because of its super thin edges. These ultra thin edges provide a seamless transition from the shaper to the skin.

Standard weight silicone duplicates the look, feel and movement of a natural breast. Its density provides an anatomically correct weight that provides balance and creates a natural, comfortable fit.

ABC: American Breast Care

American Breast Care (ABC) is a manufacturer of post-mastectomy bras, breast forms, and accessories, with a stated goal of helping women live fuller lives after breast surgery.

Their state-of-the-art production facility employs a "high tech, high touch" method of design, development and production, using input from retailers and customers to keep the products on the cutting edge of what women want. The entire operation--manufacturing, shipping, customer service and corporate offices--is housed under one roof in Marietta, Georgia.

ABC has two Breast Form Lines: Signature Pink and Persimmon.

ABC's affordable Persimmon Line of Breast Forms are basic designs with standard film and soft finish.

The Breast Forms in the Signature Pink Line are of high quality and innovative designs with a luxurious soft and satin finish that represents the ultimate in femininity to make women feel comfortable and look beautiful in clothing.

Two featured new products in Signature Pink include The Dual Soft Triangle Breast Form and the cutting edge Massage Forms. The Dual Soft Triangle has a super soft front and super soft back layer joined together by a firm layer of lightweight silicone, allowing the wearer to experience a natural drape similar to that of a natural breast but with lightweight silicone.

The New Massage Form® has unique channel paths of silicone gel on the back layer that create better air circulation, lowering perspiration for 'All Day Cool'. Combined with lightweight silicone, the Massage Form® provides comfort and maximum security. One wearer commented, "After having worn [breast] forms of all sizes, weights, and shapes for 25 years, the new massage form has proven to be a winner for me. The form connects with my chest wall, and gently massages with each breath I take. It has a cooling effect and there is no shifting in the bra."

All ABC Breast Forms in both the Signature Pink and Persimmon Lines have a 2 Year Manufacturer's Warranty and are packaged in their own Traveling Case, discreet for packing and travel. The beautifully designed geometric storage box neatly contains the Travel Case and stacks well on the shelf.

ABC's Line of Shapers provide symmetry and balance after lumpectomies, breast reconstruction, and breast conserving surgeries. The Line includes a variety of shapes designed to accommodate the different needs of wearers. ABC Shapers have ultra thin edges to provide a seamless transition from the shaper to the skin. The New Massage Form® Shaper is made with the unique channel path design that increases air circulation making this shaper cooler than others. In addition, the design prevents shifting and collapsing and allows it to mold to the contours of the body for a secure fit.

Completing the ABC Line of Breast Forms are the Leisure and Swim Forms primarily used for lounging, sleeping, and exercise during sport and recreational activities.

Mastectomy

A mastectomy is surgery to remove a breast, performed either to treat or to prevent breast cancer.

There are four main types:

  • Total mastectomy--removal of breast tissue and nipple
  • Modified radical mastectomy--removal of the breast, most of the lymph nodes under the arm and often the lining over the chest muscles
  • Lumpectomy--removal of tumor and a small amount of normal tissue around it
  • Radical mastectomy--removal of the breast, lymph nodes and chest muscles. This is no longer common.

The surgery performed depends on the stage of cancer, size of the tumor, size of the breast and involvement of lymph nodes.

Breast Prosthesis, or Form

An external breast prosthesis, or breast form, is an artificial breast worn to simulate the natural breast and body shape. Full breasts and partial breasts (known as equalizers, enhancers, or shapers) can be purchased to balance the appearance depending on what type of surgical procedure was performed. These forms come in a variety of materials (usually silicone, foam or fiberfill), and they can be worn inside a bra or attached to the body with a special adhesive.

The type of prosthesis required is determined by the amount of breast tissue that is removed.

A prosthesis can be worn against the skin, inside the pocket of a mastectomy bra, or attached to the chest wall. Prosthetic devices are designed to look feminine while ensuring comfort.

Following Mastectomy:

Breast forms are designed to look and feel similar in weight, texture, and color to the natural breast. They are worn outside the body in a close-fitting, supportive bra or a special pocketed bra. In addition to creating a symmetrical appearance, the form will replace weight to restore the body's natural balance. When the body is out of balance following a mastectomy, other musculoskeletal problems can develop. Back, neck, and shoulder problems may occur as there is a tendency for one shoulder to drop downward and inward while the other rises. Women often report that their bra rides up or moves around when there is no weighted breast form on one side of the bra.

Even if you are considering reconstruction at some later time, it is important to wear a weighted form during the intervening time.

Non silicone breast prosthesis: This prosthesis is a lightweight breast form made of polyurethane foam or fiberfill and can be worn immediately after a mastectomy. They are ideal for temporary wear right after surgery or for leisure activities, including during exercise, swimming, or hot weather. They are lighter and cooler than silicone breast forms, but they do not drape like the natural breast.

Silicone breast prosthesis: These forms are designed for full-time, daily wear and are generally fitted 6 to 8 weeks after surgery. Designed to restore your body's natural symmetry and balance, they adapt to your body temperature and move just like your natural breast. A silicone breast prosthesis is weighted (small metal core that assists in keeping the form from shifting) to help the body remain in balance and avoid the back, neck, and shoulder problems that may otherwise occur.

Attachable breast prosthesis: An attachable breast form is fastened to the chest wall using self-adhesive strips or Velcro tabs. These move with you and can be worn with a regular bra.

Fitters' Notes: If you have recently undergone surgery and/or radiation therapy, your skin may be extremely sensitive. Therefore, we do not recommend self-adhesive breast forms prior to follow-up treatment once skin has completely healed.

For hygienic reasons, due to the adhesive nature of this product, Contact breast forms cannot be returned or exchanged. Please order carefully.

Following Lumpectomy:

Depending on the amount of tissue removed during surgery, the size of your breasts, and your lifestyle, you may need to consider a breast form. Partial shells and forms are available to equalize where tissue was removed.

Partial breast prosthesis: Also called an equalizer, enhancer, or shaper, this is a device made of foam, fiberfill, or silicone, designed to be worn over a woman's own breast tissue to enhance the overall size of the breast and to create a fuller appearance after a part of her breast is removed, as in the case of a lumpectomy. A partial breast prosthesis can be worn with a regular bra or a post-mastectomy bra.

Following Reconstruction

On occasion, women who have reconstruction will find that there is still a noticeable difference between the remaining breast and the reconstructed breast. When this is the case, you can be fitted with a partial form to create a symmetrical silhouette.

Post-mastectomy bras resemble regular bras but with one important difference - they have spandex stretch pockets on the inside which help hold and keep the breast prosthesis in place.

4 Breast Form Shapes: Triangle, Teardrop, Oval, Heart-shaped

Each shape fits a specific need.

  • Triangle shape breast forms are the most versatile. They fit a variety of body and surgery types. This shape most closely resembles the mature breast with shallow profile fit (more breast tissue under nipple than above). The breast form should be worn with the smallest curve at the top of bra cup.
  • Teardrop breast form has a taper at top extension and can be positioned in any direction for optimal fit.
  • Oval breast form has a natural full profile, and is recommended for use after bilateral surgeries. Also fits well in underwire and softcup mastectomy bras.
  • Heart shape breast forms are versatile and can be positioned in any direction for best fit, These fit well with underwire bras.

Additional Information for Silicone Breast Forms

    Asymmetrical or Symmetrical Design Shape:

    • Asymmetric breast forms replace the missing breast tissue at upper chest and underarm from more radical mastectomy surgeries. They are side-specific either right or left breast.
    • Symmetric breast forms fit a variety of body types and surgeries, and fit either right or left breast.

    Profile Fits:
    • Shallow fit describes the more mature breast with soft breast tissue that fits lower in the bra cup.
    • Average fit describes equal breast tissue above and below the nipple with firm breast tissue.
    • Full Fit describes thicker profile toward edges, fuller at top, mid-line nipple placement.

Advantages of having a breast prosthesis

Many women want to wear one because they want to wear the same clothing that they wore prior to the surgery and they want to look symmetrical. There are other advantages to having a breast prosthesis. It can:

  • Give you warmth
  • Protect your chest and scars
  • Help balance your posture
  • Keep your bra from shifting or riding up
  • Help prevent problems with curvature of the spine, shoulder drop and muscular pain in the neck and back

General Instructions for Breast Prosthesis Care

(Always follow specific Manufacturer's Instructions included with prosthesis)

  • Hand wash your prosthesis every day in warm soapy water and pat it dry with a towel. Do not use a hair dryer
  • Protect your prosthesis from perfume or talcum powder
  • When you are not wearing your prosthesis, store it in the specially designed box in which it came
  • Most prostheses last about two years
