    "Too Big"
    Dear Nicola Jane

    The breast form was too big for me and looked really weird, so I couldn't use it. I ended up using my regular bra breast form, which looked more natural, plus I was a little sceptical about how that material would look and feel after spending some time in the water.
    Customer Service Reply We are sorry to hear that the shape of the 6160 Featherweight breast form was not right for you. This is a moulded foam breast form that comes with an outer cover, it's very lightweight and ideal in water. If you would like some help with the sizing please do call us on 01243 537300 and we can check the best size breast form for you or we offer a virtual appointment fitting if this is easier, please follow the link on the homepage of the website to book.

    "Disappointed / Discolored"
    I was looking forward to using theses, as after a double mastectomy and now being totally flat, I needed something to make me feel confident to go for a swim at my local pool.
    Unfortunately whilst these offers a good shape and are very light weight, unfortunately after my first use (swimming) they have both discolored and are now a nasty brown colour.
    Customer Service Reply Thank you for your comments. The featherweight breast form is made of foam and after time chlorine will start to discolour the foam, this would normally take a while before this happens. The product comes with a cover and the discolouration does not affect the product. Alternative options would be to purchase the Active Flow breast form 6300 or the silicone swim form 1086. If you need any help, please do call us on 01243 537300.

    "Excellent Product"
    A great product for swimming. Great shape. As another reviewer helpfully said, order two sizes smaller. My standard prosthetic is a size 5. The suggested size from the guide was 7. I ordered a 5 and it fits perfectly.

    "Wish I'D Found Sooner"
    This has made such a difference to me. I've been struggling between a softie (not enough) and a silicon prosthetic (too much/heavy) but this is the perfect size and weight (14g). Doesn't fall forward when I bend over. I work in a hot atmosphere and this will be perfect in the summer. Thank you

    "Lightweight Summer Necessity"
    I order one or two pairs of these every Summer to use during the hot weather especially if I am travelling abroad. I find them so much more comfortable than my regular prosthesis as they are light and cooler to wear . I definitely would not be without mine.

    "Swim Prosthesis"
    The prosthesis was nice and lite but I found the shape once put in the pocket in my bikini a bit odd looking.

    "Great Budget Breast Form"
    I ordered one because I wanted something lighter and cooler in the hot weather that I could wear in a swimsuit or in a lighter softer bra. I really liked the quality of the form when it arrived but it was much larger than I expected. I had to send two orders back and go down two sizes to get the best fit, but the customer services were excellent and it was no trouble. Got what I wanted in the end, many thanks.

    "Does The Job Well"
    I bought this foam prosthesis so I could resume swimming after my mastectomy had healed. I was a bit nervous wondering if it would get waterlogged or sag but it was fine. It did the job, and stayed in place. Easy to rinse out when I got home.

    "Few Negative Points!"
    Took this on a holiday abroad. On the first day I found that the cover which has a cotton backing took ages to dry. My bikini top would dry quickly in the sun, and then I was left with a soaking wet prosthesis next to my skin which felt pretty horrible! ( I did squeeze it out when I got out the pool.) So I removed the foam prosthesis from the cover and just put the foam into my bikini each day, as it could dry quickly. SInce returning from my holiday I have been swimming once in this country. I rinsed the foam prosthesis at the sink when I got out of the pool and dried it. When I returned home and got it out to give it a "proper wash" with detergent I found it had discoloured with brownish patches, presumably caused by the chemicals used in the swimming pool in this country- yet when I was abroad this did not happen. The other comment is that the prosthesis is quite "pert" so sits higher than my real breast, this is more obvious when you lie down on a sunlounger.
    Customer Service Reply Hi Alison,

    Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your purchase of the Featherweight Prosthesis (6160). Due to the nature of the material of this sponge prosthesis, it can take a little longer to dry compared to a silicone or a foam prosthesis. This prosthesis also provides an average to full projection therefore you may like to consider the Activeflow prosthesis (6300) as an alternative. This style has a slightly more relaxed shape and features a fast-drying outer shell. Kind regards Emily, Nicola Jane Customer Service

    "Very Comfortable And Practical"
    I am very happy with this product. It fits nicely in my bikini and the shape looks quite natural. The foam does not retain too much water and so doesn't sag when coming out of the water. It is quite fast drying too! I really like the light weight and use it everyday too instead of my silicone one!

    I am so happy with this product. I was worried as it was cheap it would not be very good. It fits like a glove in my swim wear and is well worth the money. I cant tell you how happy I am to have a swim prosthesis. Should have got one long before now.

    "Lightweight Prothesis"
    I have been using these for the past 8 years following a bilateral mastectomy, I have found them to be satisfactory as long as the swimsuit is well cut and comes quite high up the chest. I do find a lot of your products are designed for ladies with a slim figure not those like myself (I hope there are more like me size 18/20!!!) where spare tyres are not taken into consideration!! however I am just pleased to be here to be able to go swimming.

    "Foam Swim Prosthesis"
    I go swimming regularly and since my mastectomy I have been using the Silicone Swim Prosthesis - Aqua-Lite, which is quite expensive at £76. However I have been using it regularly in the pool and in the sea in Spain for over 2 years and it is still in as new condition. I thought I would try this foam one as it is much cheaper, but when I saw it I knew it would be no good as it just looks like a piece of foam, and when I put it in a swimsuit it did not give any shape. I sent it back and ordered another of the more expensive silicone one instead. Sometimes it is worth paying a bit more for a better product.

    I have bought several of these in different sizes as depending on the swimsuit a smaller or larger one looks best. Unfortunately, the latest one, size 7 is not as good a shape as the others.
