Is Your Current Prosthesis a Pain in the Neck?

If your prosthesis is too heavy or doesn't fit right, it can be a real pain in the neck, shoulder, and chest.  Make sure you're comfortable and feeling good by finding the right fit. 

The Comfort ‘n’ Confidence™ all-natural external breast prosthesis is a remarkable product with a lightweight and customizable design. It is also incredibly soft, providing comfort comparable to cashmere. 

A lightweight breast prosthesis can be beneficial for several reasons. Here are some potential benefits of a lightweight prosthesis:

  1. Reduced discomfort: A lighter prosthesis can reduce strain on the shoulders and neck, which can help to alleviate pain and discomfort.
  2. Improved mobility: A lightweight prosthesis can improve the wearer's mobility and range of motion, making engaging in physical activities or daily tasks easier.
  3. Increased confidence: A prosthesis that feels light and comfortable can help to boost the wearer's confidence and self-esteem, which can be especially important after breast surgery.
  4. Better fit: Lightweight prostheses are often made from soft and pliable materials that conform to the shape of the wearer's chest, providing a more natural look and feel.
  5. Convenience: A lightweight prosthesis can be easier to wear and transport than a heavier one, making it more convenient for women on the go.

It is important to note that while a lightweight prosthesis such as the Comfort ‘n’ Confidence™ all-natural external breast prosthesis can provide benefits, the crucial factor in choosing a breast prosthesis is finding one that fits comfortably and suits your needs and preferences. 

A certified fitter or healthcare professional can help you explore options and find the best prosthesis for your unique situation. That being said, our size chart is a great place to find your size.

It is also worth noting that because our prostheses are so easily customizable, you can fit yourself with ease. Explore by playing with the amount and placement of the fleece as well as the position of the prosthesis within the bra cup, and you WILL find the most comfortable fit for you.
