hot prosthesis

Hi! I am a 9 month survivor. Had a bilateral mastectomy with no reconstruction and wear prosthesis. I live in the south and it has already reached 90 degrees. (The prosthesis are very comfortable and I do not regret my decision.) I do a lot of errands for people and by noon I am really uncomfortably warm and beginning to prespire. I am considering purchasing the swim forms to wear daily or the Perma-Form bra. Does anyone have any experience with these? Thanks! Mary

Hi Mary,
I just purchased a new type prosthesis, it came with a form made of cloth to put on the back of it to absorb preperation. I haven't tryed it out yet but the gal at the boutique said that it was a popular style.Maybe you could check into it. You can email me here or at maudsemills.com if you have more questions.Take care and I also am happy with my decision. God Bless
