I have inflamatory breast cancer. My drs say it is incurable and it WILL come back. For this reason I had both breasts removed even though the cancer was only in one. I haven't opted for reconstruction because there is already a shadow on my sternum and I feel better knowing I can see if something pops up there. Without reconstruction the options of prosthetics suck. I had 38D's so fake ones that size just don't cut it. It's impossible to make them stay where they belong. Besides of the discomfort and awkwardness I feel the prosthetics are more for the other people who would feel awkward by seeing me and I just don't care too much what they think. If they don't like it - don't look! My problem though is finding clothes that fit. Does anyone know of a supplier of clothes for the "breastless"

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
