1st proper bra fitting
Hi all, not sure if I should post this here or in the choosing breast reconstruction group but here goes. In March 2017 I had a double skin sparing mastectomy with immediate silicone implant reconstruction followed by 25 shots of radiotherapy to my left breast. My result was great initially but due to the radiotherapy, my left breast is smaller and sits a bit higher than the right. I am told its not too noticeable but I’m self conscious about it. It can be improved by further surgery but I’m just not ready for that yet. I have been wearing the kmart seam free crop tops since then because they were comfortable but I now want something a bit prettier and more feminine so I can look and feel as good as possible until I’m ready for more surgery. I tried the usual places like Myer and David Jones but no one seems to have proper bra fitters any more. I spoke to my breast care nurse who sent me to a place called femmeline in Croydon. (I live in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne). I met a lovely lady called Jasmine who fitted me for some beautiful new bras. I also bought a partial breast form which fits inside the bra on the left and evens them up. I didn’t realise this but Jasmine told me we can be reimbursed up to $800 every 2 years through Medicare for breast forms! My breast form was $169 so I will be fully reimbursed. I also have extras cover through Medibank private so I was able to get almost all of the cost of my bras back too! I feel so much better now that I am able to look “normal” again. Anyway, I thought someone else might be interested with this info because I didn’t know about it before
