Welcome to LikeB4
They say that it is not what happens to you, but what you do about it.
Putting one’s life back together after undergoing a mastectomy, lumpectomy or reconstruction is never easy. This is why we now have a dedicated store, LikeB4, specialising solely in post mastectomy products and fittings.
The LikeB4 Boutique is our way of making this healing journey more comfortable and positive for woman.
LikeB4 offers a professional fitting service and advice in an intimate environment, allowing the focus to be on the Clients individual needs. Our world leading ranges of breast forms (Amoena, Anita), bras, swimwear, and accessories puts pure comfort and ease for every woman right where it should be – at her fingertips.
It is important to get professional help when fitting prosthesis, as not having the correct fit can result in an uncomfortable and heavy feeling prosthesis, putting pressure on the neck and shoulders.
An ill-fitting prosthesis not only looks and feels uncomfortable; clothing will pull to the natural side, giving an uneven look. When fitting prosthesis, try choosing a bra style that is preferably non-wired and that has a slightly fuller structure.
As all mastectomy bras are fully pocketed the breast form will be held securely in place and therefore the prosthesis will not be against the skin of the chest wall and preventing the prosthesis for shifting around. This is to ensure a feeling of security and confidence. With time, one can move on to lesser structures, but firstly it is just to get used to the fit and the feel of the breast form. This is why our mastectomy fittings are done by appointment only.
We will sew pockets into your existing bras as well as the bras purchased from us, for a cost of R40 per pocket.
