    So thankful for all your comments everybody.  It is wonderful just to have a bit feedback from others that have been through the same.  I had my fitting and l really don't know what l was worried about. I have Amoena also and the feel and look so natural.  It was a very warm and humid day up here in North Qld so it was good to know how comfortable they were even in the hottest of weather.   Thanks for your support.

    Thank you for your help ladies.
    @FLClover I am in Adelaide
    @Locksley how do you find a breast care nurse? I have never had one.
    Who was it did your fitting?
    Is there a company or someone I could call? I have seen amoena on line, but they seem very expensive. Does Medicare cover everyone? How does the claim work? Is it like at the doctors or different? 
    Sorry for all the questions! I feel like I must have missed something somewhere in the process and am consequently clueless 😳

    @stargirl There are a number of places in Adelaide that can help you but SA Mobile Breast Care will come to your home.  I find Krista and Barbara really nice to deal with and they know their stuff.  It's so convenient to be able to try the things at home as you can always check how they work with your clothes.
