Your Problems: Our Solutions

May 18, 2017

Problem: My prosthesis is too heavy. 

The Bressante Solution: The Bressante Capri is created with life-like silicone, so you have a product that feels real. The inside is filled with lightweight fibre fill that can be added to or taken away as needed. Our product weighs just one tenth of what a regular gel prosthesis weighs. So your tatas won't be weighing down your spirit. They won't slide around either due to our patented underband.

Problem: I've lost/gained weight and my prosthesis doesn't fit me anymore.

The Bressante Solution: Remember how we said you can take out or add in more fibre fill? Well, there's your solution. It's simple and you can add or take away volume from your prosthesis in just minutes.

Problem: My prosthesis makes me too hot.

The Bressante Solution: We sell the Bressante Comfort Liners as an accessory to the Capri. If you find that you tend to get a little sweaty in the summer time these will be very helpful for you. You can also find a seamstress to sew pockets into bras, clothes and swimsuits so you can have a carefree day outside being active!

Problem: I'm worried about my pets puncturing my prosthesis.

The Bressante Solution: Our prosthetics are tough. No need to worry about punctures like you do typically with gel prosthetics. Unless your big dog grabs it and shakes it about you'll be worry-free.

 

Problem: I want to go swimming, but I want to pack light.

The Bressante Solution: Say no more! With the Bressante Capri, it's as simple as changing the filling to our swim filling and off you go! Contact us to learn more.

Problem: All the prostheses I see are pink or white. but I have dark skin.

The Bressante Solution: Diversity is important to us here at Bressante. We have a range of colours in our store, and we are hoping to eventually expand to offer even more choices!

 

Problem: I'm worried about people feeling my breast prosthesis when they hug me.

The Bressante Solution: Our breast prosthesis passes The Hug Test every time. It feels so natural, you won't have to worry if others can feel your prosthesis.
