Customize Your Cleavage - Breast Forms with Blake

While estrogen can do wonders for a woman’s chest area, it takes a little while for them to work their magic. It can even take a long time to be able to start the process at all, depending on finances, safety, age, accessibility, etc. So what’s a girl to do in the meantime to fill out those cute tops? Well, there are plenty of options in the form of, well, breast forms.

What are breast forms, you ask? They’re more or less what they sound like: removable boobs. They can be made out of a variety of materials and come in many different sizes, shapes, tones, weights, and price points. Let’s check out a few.

Bear in mind that what most people consider to be the “primary” purpose of breast forms is for cis women who have had to have a mastectomy for breast cancer, so that’s a lot of what fuels the availability of these prostetics.

On the lower price end of the scale, there are the foam inserts. These have the general shape of boobs, but usually do not come standard with anything to make them more realistic in feel or appearance. They do come in a variety of weights and firmness, and can come either alone or attached to a bra. They tend to run between $20-$100 (individually, if purchased from a post-op store).

Some breast forms are made for specialized bras that have pockets in them to hold them in place. An example of these is the F(oo)B™ breast forms from AnaOno. The inserts are made of a lightweight, squishy, soft material that is made specifically to go with their specialized pocket bras. The forms themselves are pretty cheap starting at only $9, but the pocket bras are in the ballpark of $50, which is about the cost of a decent Victoria’s Secret bra, but not necessarily in the budget of the everywoman.

Now, to make that price point sound a lot better, on the other side of the spectrum there are realistic silicone breast forms. These can come in a number of styles such as: connected to a bra shape, connected to a “chest plate” shape that looks like a crop top made of skin tone silicone, or as individual inserts. The average price of any of these that look realistic is definitely over $100, but if you get the chest plate you have the ability to rock some killer cleavage.

Outside of that, your price varies depending on things like: Do you want to have nipples? Do you want it to match, or get close to, your skin tone? Do you want symmetrical or asymmetrical? Truly, you can fully customize your boobies.

There are also breast enhancement forms. These are usually the foam forms but with an indention inside for a small cup to be able to fit in it. These could be used by a woman who is not quite a full A to be able to get up to that cup size without implants. These tend to run about the same price range as the foam forms.

And of course, in today’s world of cosplay, there is always the diy option, and plenty of tutorials to follow for this purpose. I'll add links to some of the tutorials in the show notes. There are also people who will nits breast forms for a lower price than the foam ones, and some people offer patterns to follow in order to create them for yourself. There will be a link 21 potential seller on Etsy in the show notes. These tend to look better in a bra than just wads of tissues or some socks. However, if you’re in a pinch, there are tutorials showing how to properly utilize those as well.

All of this of course just is just the tip of the iceberg. There is an ever-increasing list of options for you to peruse in order to find what works best for you and your budget. Do you have a favorite style or brand? have you tried to make some on your own? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
