Q: What kind of bra do you recommend for a Balance partial breast shaper fitting?
A: The measurement method works best if you’re wearing a wire-free bra that is not padded.
Q: Should Balance shapers be worn in the pocket of a mastectomy bra?
A: Actually, it is recommended to wear Balance directly on the skin and not in the pocket. If you perspire a lot or it is a hot climate outside you can try to put the partial in the pocket as well. We also offer Balance Contact if you prefer an adhesive breast shaper.
Q: Does the ‘CCD’ measuring method work for the Ellipse and Varia shapes as well?
A: This method is only verified for Thin Oval, Medium Delta and Volume Delta, because the Varia and Ellipse shapes are only made in one thickness.
Q: Can the Thin Oval be worn in different positions, too?
A: Absolutely, this kind of shaper can be turned as needed to create the best coverage and symmetry.

How to Measure
Select the proper shape and size of the remaining breast. Consider the best style bra that fits your natural breast.
Take a soft tape measure and measure around the body where your bra band fits(with a bra on). Pull the tape snug but not tight.This will give you your band size. Make sure the tape is even all around your body.Next, measure from the center of the chest wall on top of existing breast to the center of the back. Double that measurement and that should give you an approximate measurement of how to figure the cup size. Uneven numbers-round off to next whole number. Subtract the band size from the measurement of the cup size . Each 1″ difference is a cup size. (band size 34″,cup measurement, 36″–should be 34 B)
Fitting A Prosthesis | Prosthesis Shapes:
Triangular shaped forms can be worn on either the left or the right side of the body. These are suitable for younger women with firmer pectoral muscles. These shapes are designed to suit most contemporary surgical techniques, where less breast tissue is removed.
Suitable for women whose surgeries remove some underarm or Clavicle tissue. The teardrop form has an extension which can be angled for best fit. Can be worn on the left or right side of the body.
An extremely versatile shape which fills the bra cup without unnecessary bulk when no auxiliary tissue has been removed in surgery. Suitable for younger women with firmer pectoral muscles.
Asymmetrical shapes provide a range of cup projection and profile in the bra from shallow to full, depending on the extent of the surgery. Underarm extensions fill and blend where surgery has removed tissue.

A New Fitting Method for Thickness
We developed the fitting method below to help you find the best thickness for your breast shaper needs.
Finding the Cross-Cup Difference
The cross-cup is the measured width between the front centre of the bra (at your sternum) to the side seam. The method works best if you’re wearing a soft cup (wire-free) bra.
For a more precise measurement, measure in centimetres:
1. Measure the cross-cup on your non-surgery side
2. Measure the cross-cup on your surgery side
3. Subtract the width of step 2 from the width of step 1
4. The total is the Cross-Cup Difference (CCD)
CCD < 1 cm = Thin
CCD 1-2 cm = Medium
CCD >2 cm = Volume
How to Wear a Breast Form?
Most women wear their breast forms every day, for all occasions.
To securely hold a breast form or partial shaper, Amoena designs beautiful bras with integral pockets. These pocketed bras boost your confidence and body
While you can wear non-pocketed “regular” bras, they may not be as secure for you as one with a pocket in the cup.
Because staying fit is so important, particularly after breast surgery, pocketed swimwear and active wear, including sports bras, are also available.
Leisure and Home wear lets you relax in comfort because the bras are built right in. In all of these lingerie and clothing options, pockets securely hold the breast forms in place and let you move freely.
Wearing the right breast form can make a big difference in how you feel every day.
Breast Prosthesis Fitting Process
We understand that with such a wide range to choose from, selecting a breast form can be a bit overwhelming! To make it easier, we code our products with a number and letter system.
You or your fitter should begin with these three steps to get started:
Step 1: Cup fullness
Select the cup fullness you need. Is your remaining breast (1) shallow, (2) average or (3) full?
Step 2: ShapeConsider the shape: (S) symmetrical, (A) asymmetrical or (E) extra.
Step 3: SizeYour fitter will properly measure your bra size to determine your breast form size. All Amoena breast forms are available in a wide size range.
We recommend that you wait at least six weeks after your breast surgery, to ensure that incisions have healed.
