Breast warmer bra inserts for mastectomy patients

Has anyone tried the Brilliantly Warm inserts? They were made by a mastectomy patient to combat the cold feeling some of us get from implants. They look a little pricey, so I was wondering if anyone had tried them.

My chest gets a little chilly when I'm in a room any cooler than about 68 degrees.

    I just use hot hands in the pockets of a flannel shirt when I’m outside in the winter.

    This is my first time using a forum like this - my double mastectomy was April 2021.

    I am also curious about these warmers - this is a very uncomfortable and unexpected side effect.

    I can’t even find a review for them anywhere online- and I do need something.

    Hope to get some info

    Hi Mary. My doctors didn't warn me about this issue, either.

    I haven't tried those warmers I posted. Usually I'm fine if I wear a warm top or I'm in a warm environment.
