FAQ about breast forms

How do I choose a Breast Form?

Determining which breast form is the best fit for you mainly comes down to your body type and personal preference. Breast Forms come in a wide variety of styles, quality, shapes, and materials to suit your needs.

The size of the breast forms suitable for you can be determined by factors such as your body shape and size, type of clothes you will be wearing, and your intended objective when dressing.

If you wish to go for a natural look, select breast forms which are proportional to your actual body size. If you purchase breast forms too big for your frame then you  might have an odd body proportion that looks very unnatural and also fitting into outfits could be a problem. Correct body measurements are essential to get the right size of breast forms.

How to find 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.

how to measure bra band size

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.

How to find your cup size?

You will need two things to find your cup size – your bra band size and your bust size.

To find out your bust size – Use 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.

Now, 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.

  1. Is there any way to repair a silicone breast form? One of mine has a small cut in it and a tiny amount of sticky silicone comes out every time I wear them and I want to fix it before it gets worse.

    1. You should try asking the manufacturer who you brought it from.

  2. Depending on the breast form you may not be totally out of luck. I had a boob that got a small tear in it, complements of my cat. It was in a not visible area, so I just used a really good flexible band-aid and that worked for the rest of its life. As always, contact the maker of the breast form. Before applying the bandage you want to clean the area really good with a cleaner so there is no oil or residue from the leak. Best of luck.
