formsI am so pleased to share the following post from Heather Goodes, of Awesome Breastforms, who invites women to order free, hand knitted and crocheted breast forms that are all made by volunteers.

Giving you back your curves!

For those with mastectomies, not having reconstruction…wonderful news: Our very active group of volunteers from around the world has been busy knitting and crocheting breast forms for those having a mastectomy without reconstruction.

These breast forms are lighter and cooler to wear than silicone forms, and are made using soft 100% cotton. They are available in cup sizes from A to DD.

We will take special orders for larger sizes, and from women who have had lumpectomies. You are welcome to choose forms in light and dark skin tones, pastels or go really funky with wild & crazy ones, nipples or no nipples. Because we crochet and knit the orders as they come in, we do our best to give you your color choice. We do send our forms around the world so don’t be afraid to ask if you want your curves back. In the last two months alone we have sent forms to Canada, The United States, South Africa, the Philippines, West Indies, Australia, New Zealand, St. Vincent & Grenadines, the United Kingdom, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

We are stocking one cancer hospital with forms and have started receiving requests from doctors offices to have our samples and ordering information. Medical professionals are excited when they see our forms. Fortunately our volunteer base is also growing steadily. The forms are totally free….you will NOT be asked for a monetary donation.

Please drop by and visit our website and read what others have said about our forms on the Loving My Curves section of the website. http://awesomebreastforms.org. Please check us out. The instructions for ordering are on the website.
