Fashion Forms 101 What You Need To Know
What is a fashion form? Great question. We talk a lot about breast forms and breast prosthetics, but what is a fashion form? Here at AnaOno, we know it isn’t about the “breasts” it’s about how you want to express yourself. So we say, breast forms don’t have to be so serious! Hey, we get it. Sometimes you may want boobs, and sometimes you may not, so why not have your F(oo)Bs™ in your intimates drawer just for the days you want to play around with your look and your fashion. We like to think of our F(oo)Bs™ for fashion, not just a necessity.
Fashion Forms 101
Body forms can come in many shapes and sizes, from breast forms, to buttocks fillers, to waist shapers, and more. Think about that slinky dress you bought for a friends wedding, maybe you would love to see a well defined waistline, it’s ok, you can purchase a body shaper to achieve more extreme results than what we have on a daily basis, maybe by skipping a few of the extra crunches at the gym as well! We all may have a pair of Spanx in the back of our underwear drawer! Fashion forms can be used to accentuate (or not) different parts of our body to achieve a certain aesthetic under our clothing.
Types of Fashion Forms
If you are going for a certain look, fashion forms can come in many different materials to achieve different results. Take our AnaOno F(oo)Bs™ for example. These are foam filled breast forms that are meant to be slid into a pocket of a bra to help mimic a breast shape under clothing. These F(oo)B™ forms can be used to build up a flat chest with breast mounds, or can help to fill in shape and gaps from missing breasts. Neither of these are required to live a fulfilled life, but it may help with a little confidence under a blouse or dress if there is gapping or bubbling due to the loss of volume in the chest area. The same could be said for other parts of the body, from the hips to the booty, the waist, and even arms and legs.
How to Buy Fashion Forms?
First we would ask, what look are you wanting to achieve. From there, finding the right material and type of form will likely be the answer. Are you looking for something more permanent or quick and easy. There are many body forms that are made out of silicone like materials so when poked or squeezed give a feeling of the body. Silicone forms may also be a bit heavier and hotter than other choices in the market. Foam allows for great flexibility in weight, shape, and cost, but may be more limited to the true human nature of the replacement. We offer full breast forms, partial breast forms, and even modesty pads to smooth out appearances under clothing, the choice is incredibly personal.
Can Breast Cancer Patients Use Fashion Forms?
Absolutely. In many cases, the removal of breast tissue is required following a cancer diagnosis. This can leave asymmetrical breasts, if having a lumpectomy with or without radiation. The full removal of the breast tissue following a mastectomy, may also leave indentation or flat areas in the chest wall. Both of these surgery outcomes can cause some tops, blouses, and dresses to be ill fitting in the torso. We love encouraging others to rock their flat chests, but we also know that filling out a bra or a top may be important to others and that is why our AnaOno F(oo)Bs™ Fashion Form insert is a perfect and easy option for the days you want to have boobs, and also our bra collections for FLAT are great for days when you don’t!
