The Nearly Me® brand of mastectomy products was founded in 1976 by Ruth Handler who was also the creator of Mattel's Barbie® Doll. Following a modified radical mastectomy for breast cancer, she had difficulty finding a comfortable, realistic, beautiful, and easy-to-purchase breast prosthesis. She had the resources to design and develop a breast form for herself, and thus, created the Nearly Me® brand so that other women could have access to the same high-quality breast prostheses.
Nearly Me® mastectomy products have been on the market over 30 years and continue to create products that fit the physical as well as the emotional needs of women following mastectomy. Their goal is "to help women look and feel beautiful after breast surgery".
All Nearly Me® forms and accessories are made in the USA with American materials and labor. Their manufacturing facility is in Waco, TX, and prides itself in producing top-quality products that are comfortable, durable, and economical.
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 appearance. 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.
A prosthesis can be worn against the skin, inside the pocket of a pocketed bra, or attached to the chest wall. Prosthetic devices are designed to look feminine while ensuring comfort.
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.For hygenic reasons, due to the adhesive nature of this product, Contact breast forms cannot be returned or exchanged. Please order carefully.
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. A partial breast prosthesis can be worn with a regular bra or a pocketed bra.
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.
