In Australia one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. After breast surgery, there are a great number of women who will choose an external breast form rather than implants or reconstructive surgery. It is after breast surgery that many of these women will learn about their breast form options. Often they receive the information from the Surgeon, Breast Care Nurse or support organisations. Then they begin asking lots of questions about ‘where they are sold’ and ‘how they are worn and fitted?’
At Secrets 4 Women owner and highly professional bra and mastectomy fitter, Therese Thorp prides herself on the service she provides, making every woman feel at ease during the fitting process. Therese and Ann Gledson, both fully certified fitters, have over 50 years experience between them. They share information and support compassionately helping the customer regain confidence lost after surgery.
Every woman wants to look good and feel great, so to be fitted in the breast form style that is most suitable to her needs they choose a form that is close to the customer’s own bust. Our goal is to allow these women to emerge from the experience with a retained sense of femininity and renewed confidence.
Wearing a correctly fitted breast form that matches a remaining breast in size and shape helps replace the breast weight and keeps the body’s equilibrium and alignment evenly balanced. Not replacing the lost breast tissue can cause back, neck or shoulder problems in some women. Secrets 4 Women carries a range of different size breast forms, Amoena bras and mastectomy swimsuits. Wearing a correctly fitting bra is also essential. Therese points out, “It is important to check your fitting and replace your bras yearly for optimum support. Bodies change, bras change with wear and washing, so to be the most comfortable, have correct posture and be ready for every fashion, you should have your fit checked”.
We are always excited to welcome new customers – appointments for post-surgery fittings are necessary.
