Silicon breast forms are of course, a constant “discourse” within our wonderful CDH universe. As one who has tried and owned four of the most well known brands, I offer my thoughts as per the following.
Starting with the cheapest and working upwards. (No prices as this will vary from country to country) Also I stress I am not “on an earner” from any vendor…
G/SEAL ATTACHABLE FORMS
The best “all rounders”, (bad pun!!) on the market. Both for price and wearability. True to size and using the double sided tape and adhesive wipe method, the safest, most secure method of attachment. I’m on my third pair over about 10-12 years and they are my “Go to’s” when going public. They add a lot to my confidence, as they look and feel right for my build. (See my CDH photo profile, I have these on in all my photos). Lack the “all over attachment” feeling of the other 3, but when in Caty mode I still love the ability to go bra less when I can.. Also, the tape method allows access to my (ahem) “real” nipples, if and when that needs to occur . Should be removed and your “pecs” refreshed after about 24-36hrs
CLASSIC SEMI ROUNDS
Very realistic and true to size, but from what I can gather not recommended for attachment with double sided tapes. Optional self adhesive pads are available, but a/.are expensive for what they are, b/. will not hold on bra less c/. are inclined to let the bond between form and pads “slip”. They also tend to lose “sticky” on both sides after a few months. I got tired of buying new adhesive pads*** and this led me to buying…
A revelation….The “sticky” is very good, I can sleep on my side all night, sans bra and they wont come off. Sadly as soon as I’m” vertical”, gravity gets in the way and they “come adrift”. The silicon grade is super soft and they look very nice when encased in my lacy bra. They do run to the small side, I ordered my “usual” size 6, (C Cup) but that took me down a cm or two from the g/seals
I bought these quite some time ago and of course since they aint the cheapest by a “long bra band”, have lasted the longest. This is also due to the fact I’ve never worn them as much as the other 3, especially the g/seals. Still a “full C Cup” , with more overall “volume” and best worn with a full cup bra. Will not stay on bra less. Again as you would expect, the silicon grade is very very good. These are “proper like” mastectomy forms
In order not to offend the CDH “no commercial plugs code” I have not mentioned vendor names or full description of the forms. Nor do I have any experience buying from other vendors other than the one I have used for all purchases.
But it wont take any CD geniuses to “get abreast” about where all my forms came from.
Hope this helps someone with their purchase decisions.
*** In this “recycling” day and age, these forms ended up with a CDH friend whom was still filling her (wife’s old ) bra with socks. She has now graduated to my old forms and had a personal bra fitting in a lingerie shop. Me jealous?? never!! Yes, I’ve been fitted before but not “en femme”… On this years “to do list”…
