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® breast 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.
