After women experience a mastectomy, lumpectomy or reconstruction due to the effects of breast cancer, she must determine which type of breast form and post mastectomy bra suits her best. A Touch of Pink strives to improve the woman's self-esteem and self-confidence by properly fitting her with a comfortable bra and breast form to help restore her shape.
A Touch of Pink provides an ample range of styles, sizes and shapes to fit every woman's unique needs. Before the mastectomy, a soft camisole may be provided. The camisole has removable light weight forms built in to achieve a symmetrical shape post surgery. It includes two detachable pouches to hold drain pouches. Immediately after surgery, a patient may be fit with a light-weight foam breast form. This provides the patient post-operatively with support and restores her shape under clothing. She is ready to be fit with a permanent silicone breast form six to eight weeks after surgery. The form is designed to be worn inside of a mastectomy bra next to her surgery site. It will provide her with the texture, color, weight and resemblance of a breast. The forms come in three different shapes; triangular, teardrop and heart shaped. A Touch of Pink carries a wide selection of mastectomy bras. The bras come with pockets sewn within the cup to hold the breast form in place. Additionally, A Touch of Pink provides women with the option of custom breast prosthesis. The patient's chest wall is cast to provide her with a congruous and appropriate fitting prosthesis. It is made to resemble her removed breast as closely as possible. The prosthesis will have an identical nipple as the existing breast. It can also be worn in a non-mastectomy bra (non-pocketed) or adhere to the chest wall. Mission Statement: CARE
