Does anyone know of a reasonable place to get breast prostesis? Mine are 3 1/2 years old now and for the most part are OK. I was told they have a life expectancy of 2 years . so I feel like I should start looking, just in case. I also would like to purchase a pair for swimming. The first set with a bra cost $600.00 and I can not afford that at this time. I have even looked on the net trying to find directions for making them, but have not had any luck. Bird seed and some of the other suggestions just didn't sound comfortable. The silicone are very comfortable and I have never had a problem with fit or comfort. The first time insurance helped defray the cost, this time I'm on my own. Any homemade directions would be greatly appreciated. I still work in the public and not comfortable without them for appearances. But don't have a problem without them at home.
