How soon after surgery should I be fitted for a breast prosthesis?

The fitting of a breast prosthesis should not be rushed – you want to allow time for the incision to heal and the swelling to be gone. Usually 4-6 weeks after breast surgery is a good time to be fitted for a breast form. An adjustable fibre filled breast form can be used in the meantime, which will provide comfort and some fullness. 

How can I buy bras and lingerie as a gift when I don’t know her size?

What is the best way to put on my hosiery so I don’t damage it?

These simple instructions will help you put your hosiery on, while maintaining the quality and fit of your quality product:

1. Always remember to remove jewelry from your hands, pay attention to your nails and apply moisturizer to your hands. You can also wear latex gloves. 2. Gather the tights up to the toe. 3. Position the top of the tights at the toe. Starting delicately slip on the tights while stretching it evenly up to your knee then thigh. The same applies to the other leg. 4. Roll out the pantyhose up to the waist or hip and position it correctly, by delicately turning and moving the panty in a way that the seams go straight.​

How often should I be doing a breast health check?

We all know how important our breast health is in stemming the effects of breast cancer. Statistics indicates 1 in 9 women will contact this nasty disease, and early detection is our saving grace.

A Youtube video that I came across a couple of years ago, comes to mind frequently and reminds me how important it is to give myself that quick check. If you have seen it before, that’s awesome. Maybe sharing it with friends who haven’t, will bring a smile to you and your friends and remind us to add this self- examination to our monthly agenda. Rethink Breast Cancer

How should I wash my lingerie?

Lingerie, Bras & Shapewear: Hand washing will give you the best results. Tights & Hosiery: Use a gentle wash bag if washing in the machine and never put in the dryer as this breaks down elastic. Lay flat to dry to prevent stretching. Yoga, Sport & Activewear: Wash as soon as possible to remove body oils, sunscreen and bacteria from perspiration. Yoga wear worn casually, but not for exercising, can be washed every 3-4 wears. Sweaters & Wraps: Some wools, such as cashmere, can take several days to dry. To remove excess moisture, roll between two towels or spin in a large salad spinner with a pull cord.
