Prosthesis question

This may be a question with an obvious answer. But I'm not sure. Is it ok if silicone breast forms get warm while you're wearing them...like hot from walking in the sunshine or in a hot car before the AC kicks in?

Thanks!

    I've felt somewhat sweaty underneath my prostheses but it would take a LOT more heat for them to melt ;)

    I do periodically rinse them with cold water after I take them off so they don't get smelly. They're pretty easy care.

    Thank you! It's in the 90s here and I've been wondering about that. I wore my memory foam one yesterday, and it was pretty comfortable.
