Choosing the right breast forms is important because it will help to instantly maximize your male to female transformation, put together your feminine look, and also make you feel feminine & beautiful. Determining which breast forms is the best fit for you mainly comes down to your body type and personal preference.
Here are few considerations to determine the right breast forms for yourself:
Are you a crossdresser who only dresses indoors or also go out frequently in public? Or, are you undergoing transition and looking for the most realistic breast forms that you can afford?
If you only dress indoors, you can choose almost any kind of breast forms according to your preference ( small to very large). However, if you also plan to go out in public or looking for very realistic breast forms, then you will need to carefully consider the size and quality of the breast forms for a more passable figure.
What type of Look and Feel do you want in a Breast Form?
What is important for you? Look or the feel or perhaps both? If you just want to achieve a good and convincing look, you can use Foam breast forms which are quite affordable but they won’t provide the feel (weight and bounce) like premium quality breast forms do.
If you want breast forms that not only looks good but also feels very real then you will need to spend a bit more for the quality. Breast forms like the Aphrodite , Athena, Gold Seal Naked Breastplate are some of the top quality breast forms that looks & feel very realistic.
Do you want to wear your breast forms with bra or bra-less (unsupported):
Nowadays, you can get breast forms like the Aphrodite breast forms or the Gold Seal Classic that can be easily attached to the chest and it is simply amazing. The self-adhesive breast forms has a sticky back side and will attach to the skin nicely. You can wear these breast forms even without a bra for an hour or so, which is pretty incredible. Also, wearing them with a bra is really comfortable and they will feel like a part of you.
The adhesive built-in to the back for sticking to the skin does slowly lose its stickiness after few hours if you are not wearing anything to support them. For going bra-less for longer hours, these breast forms need the addition of a good quality adhesive.
The more you spend the more realistic breast forms will look & feel. But yes, top quality breast forms can be very costly. So, try choosing the best quality that you can afford. If you don’t have a big budget, at least spend on a decent quality breast forms rather than spending on very cheap ones. Getting cheaper breast forms are usually a huge disappointment because they won’t be as good, comfortable to wear and durable.

How to Determine Your Breast Form Size?

Correct Measurements Are Essential to figure out the right size of breast forms for you.
Easy 4 Step fitting process:
1. Measure your bra band size:
A correct bra band size is essential so that your bra fits well and insures that the corresponding breast forms you choose will be sized to your expectations. This step is very important for selecting the breast forms that will look the most natural on your body. The fit of your bra is crucial to how natural the breast form will feel.
The right size bra and breast forms will likely help you feel more feminine, and will help make it easier to ‘pass.’
To take the bra band measurement, measure around your chest 2 inches below your nipple. This is where your bra band should naturally sit. Band sizes come in even numbers, so if you find you measure at an odd number, go up or down one size whichever is closer to an even number.
2. Measure your bust size:
Using a tape, measure directly across your nipples. Extend the tape from your chest, keeping it in line with your nipples this time. Extend as far as you would like your bust size to be. To find the correct bust size, girls/women will place the tape around the fullest part of their bust.
While measuring your bust size, you will want to consider your overall body size and height. If you are going for a passable figure, don’t go for very large bust size.
3. Find your Cup Size
Subtract the band size from your bust size to find the right cup size. That number determines your cup size. Every inch equals one cup size up, from an A to an H.
If you’re still unsure of what cup size to choose, try starting with a smaller form. This will allow you time to get familiar with the weight and feel and become comfortable wearing a breast form overall. From there, you’ll know if you wish to try a larger one.
4. Choose the appropriate product
Now take your band measurement & cup size and that’s your perfect fit.
Example: If your band measurement is 38 and your cup size is C, then the right breast forms size for you will be 38 C.
