More information

Breast forms are commonly marketed to people who have had a mastectomy (breast removal) due to cancer, but they can be used by anyone. Breast forms may be designed to increase the size of existing breast tissue, or to be used by people who are entirely missing one or both both breasts.

Breast forms are usually attached to the skin with adhesive. For a simpler solution, it is also possible to use bra inserts, which are held against the body by a bra.
