THREE more sizes just added!

Posted by Mary LaCaze on Saturday, July 5, 2014, In : Announcements 
Hello friends!  Just today realized that I'd not yet added two sizes that I'd been making for a while for people who asked... the size 3XSmall and the size 6XLarge, which have both turned out to be oft-needed sizes.  Usually I quietly make new sizes for people who ask, test them out for awhile, and if it's right, then they get added to the website.  These should have been there awhile ago, so I'm sorry for the delay.  Someone just ordered a size 7XL so I decided to go ahead and put that one o...

New ordering CHECKLIST and adjustment TUTORIALS added!

Posted by Mary LaCaze on Thursday, February 20, 2014, In : Announcements 
Hello, friends!  Some of you know that for a LONG TIME I've been promising to add a photo tutorial on this website to show you a simple way to remove some microbeads from your breast forms when they're too 'perky'.  You also needed a tutorial on how to close the adjustment tubes that I've been providing some of you with.  It's been especially popular with those who've had single mastectomies.  Then, what about those who have multiple or more unusual adjustment needs, a CHECKLIST of options ha...

Finally made an extra pair of microbead breast forms and posted them for sale on the "Items For Sale" tab of this site.  If you don't sew and want a pair, now's the time, because I won't be making them often.  The microbeads are a mess to work with, lol... and the forms are not difficult really, but they do take several hours to make so I can't do it often.  There have been so many questions come in lately from survivors who don't sew that I thought, well, I have a day free to sew, why not?  ...

Who and Why...


My name is Mary. I'm a survivor of breast cancer. After bilateral mastectomy and chemotherapy in 2007, I'd thought everything would be fine when the last chemo treatment was done and my hair grew back. But, there was so much to learn before being comfortable again! I'm still seeking more solutions to the mastectomy issues that so many of us share, and wrote this website to hopefully help others skip ahead on the learning curve.
