I posted this on another thread but then they directed me here. (I'm new here and still stumbling around the site.)
So, ok yes, I'm serious. Does anyone like their prosthetic bras?
I,m deciding to take out my implants but want to find out what ladies think of the prosthetic bras. I hear most ladies say they don't use them and just go flat. I think I'm too chubby for that. my tummy would stick out. and I work full-time in an office and need a little shape up there.
My implants are four months old and I already regret putting them in. They are too big, heavy, sore, tight, and different sizes. (Bad PS, I'll spare you the details) I've heard bras are heavy and hot. But at least you can take them off at night whereas I can't take my implants off at night. I could be the same size on each side and that would be a plus. I'm also in a situation where due to financial changes I need to find the lowest maintenance way of handlling the DMX. Implants require further operations and money down the road when they wear out.
So are the bras so terrible?
I want to hear good things about them, but also need to know the truth.
What are the pros and cons?
Any surprises about them, good or bad?
Anythng I should ask the PS before hand?
Are there a lot of extra scars when you are deconstructed?
Can they still tighten up the loose skin or is it too late for that?
I had the implants put in without any information about what I was getting into. It all just happened so fast. I was niave and uninformed of my options. So this time, since I found this website I'm asking around, though I hope I'm not becoming a pest..
I'm so desparate for information, I'm grateful to anyone who replies. Thank you in advance.
Gently and gratefully,
