Product Description & Benefits:
The Nearly Me Extra Lightweight Tapered Oval is an economical option with shallow profiles and soft yet extra-durable outer film. It is made from "Whipped" silicone gel which are very popular because they are 35% lighter, but the decision to wear a lighter form should be considered carefully. The Tapered Oval has a shallow front profile, has a slightly indented back profile, and is symmetrical to fit either side of the body. The Oval shape has a "wing" that can be turned in any direction to fill where needed, or can be turned to wear in strapless dresses or halter tops. Consult your Certified Mastectomy Fitter to make sure your bra and breast form fit correctly if you feel that your breast form is too heavy. The breast form doesn't come with a cover.
Each Nearly Me breast form is encapsulated in a thin resilient film to help maintain its suppleness and has a full 2-year replacement warranty against manufacturing defects. Warranty is from date of original purchase.
The primary benefit of this breast form is that it restores balance to the body by replacing the weight loss in the breast area following a mastectomy. The breast form helps reduce spine curving and shoulder problems caused by weight asymmetry after a mastectomy. The breast form helps a woman restore the natural silhouette to the body for good mental and emotional health. Most importantly, a breast form helps a woman look and feel feminine, attractive, confident, and comfortable.
