"Iíve been wearing my new prosthesis for several weeks
now and am completely satisfied with its comfortable features. Itís so
lightweight, and I appreciate the fact that it isnít cold when I install
it after itís lain on the dresser overnight!"
Virginia W., Indianapolis IN
"Thank you so much for your help and assistance in obtaining the
correct prosthesis sizeÖ Every time I had to place a call to your
company, the representatives were friendly and very helpful, making
suggestions and information to allow me to obtain a proper fit. It is
wonderful in this day and age to have a company that provides assistance
via real-live women representatives who we can speak to directly. What a
pleasure dealing with all of you."
Maggie K., Ft Myers FL
"Several months ago, I phoned for more information about your
prosthesis. Since I had always worn a silicone prosthesis which was very
expensive, I was skeptical about what you offered. The person I spoke to
was most patient and reassuring. I have been very pleased with my
purchase. Thank you for being a ĎBosom Buddyí."
Selma N., Foxboro MA
"I have thought of dropping you a note since my first wearing of your
special product Ė Bosom Buddy. My purpose in writing is to say thank you
for this safe, comfortable prosthetic breast form. I feel very fortunate
that my breast surgeon gave me the information about your product."
Kay C., Tampa FL
"I canít tell you how delighted I am with my Bosom Buddy. I have paid
more than four times your price and havenít been as pleased."
Helen K., Pittsboro NC
"I have been wearing the heavy silicone form for many years until I
came across your ad in a magazine one day and sent for ĎBosom Buddy.í
How nice and light and comfortable and cool. You have a lifelong
customer in me."
Marie B., Sun City Center FL
"My patients find your breast form cost effective, easily adaptable
and comfortable, especially in the warm Sacramento Valley climate. I
find the product well designed for either short term use before breast
reconstruction or for permanent use."
Dominic Erba, MD, F.A.C.S.,
The Woodland Clinic, Woodland CA
"I have had many prostheses over the years Ė some very expensive Ė
but have always been uncomfortable. Most are much too heavy and
certainly much too hot, especially during the summerÖ Hence this letter
to say thank you and may God bless you for what already seems like a
great productÖ Sorry I suffered for such a long time."
Marie P., Staten Island NY
"I am ordering another prosthesis from you and want you to know how
comfortable Iíve found my first one. Itís so much cooler and doesnít
pull on my shoulder. Besides, the cost is unbelievable. I paid almost
$300 for my first one and it now lays in its box on a shelf. I also
couldnít believe the speed in which I received my first one. Usually
itís 4-6 weeks and when it arrived in a week, we could not believe. What
a wonderful product and such fast service. Believe me I tell everyone I
know whether they have had a mastectomy or not."
Helen M., Lakeside OR
"Iím 44 years old and writing my first Ďfan letter.í I ordered my
Bosom Buddy with the intention of using it only until I could be fitted
with a silicone form, but I was in for a wonderful surprise! No
testimonial for your product should overlook one of your most impressive
features, the cost. I truly feel your firm is providing a humanitarian
service in making a product available to women who may not be able to
afford a prosthesis otherwise. You have a life-long customer in me."
Brenda M., Wilmington DE
"Through a patient of mine I became acquainted with your
breast form and have found it to be a very satisfactory answer for many
of my patients. They enjoy its adjustability and its softness,
especially those who are still deciding upon whether they desire
surgical reconstruction of their breast. This is an excellent compromise
during the interim, and, of course, for patients who do not desire
reconstruction, this is an excellent long-term product as well."
Ronald Kurstin, MD, Chevy Chase MD
"Just a short note to thank you so much for such a terrific product.
It has been over thirteen years since I underwent a mastectomy and this
is the first time I have felt that I looked Ďnormal.í Other products
were either much too light or way, way too heavy. The Bosom Buddy is
perfect. When I received it last November, I thought I was dreaming! I
was so skeptical, that I decided not to make a decision about liking or
not liking it for at least a week. Know what happened? After just a few
days, I was so used to wearing the new prosthesis that I completely
forgot, for once, worrying about my appearance. I intended to write a
little thank you to you long before this, but I have to admit my Bosom
Buddy has become part of my life, and my wardrobe, and like all habits
(good and bad) it becomes something I just havenít thought too much
about. Please accept my new order, my gratitude, and my best wishes for
your continued success in business."
Theresa S., Eastpointe MI
"I have my surgeon to thank for finding you and Iím glad to pass on
the information to people who (after all the stress of cancer etc.) need
a good product, comfortable fit and great price."
Deborah S., Copperas Cove TX
"I had a radical mastectomy in October of 1974. After recovery from
radiation and chemotherapy treatment I searched madly for the perfect
prosthesis. I paid for and discarded literally hundreds of dollars worth
of prostheses and bras. One day I saw an ad in a magazine for a
prosthesis I hadnít tried yet. The cost was very moderate so I decided
to try one more! The Bosom Buddy! That was about 23 years ago, and
though somewhere along the way I purchased an additional one from you, I
have been comfy all these years wearing any bra I want to, and as many
or few little baggies as desired. Your product has been the perfect
solution. Iím too old now, as I approach 80, to buy another one, but I
really donít need it. My two Bosom Buddies are still in good condition!
I saw your ad in Modern Maturity and decided to write you my testimonial
after all this time."
Felice D., Portland OR
"Thank you, thank you, thank you. I havenít been so comfortable since
the doctor did his stuff on my right breast. You make wonderful padding
and just (the) right size for me."
Donna H., Wheeling IL
"Just a little note to tell you I am very pleased with the Bosom
Buddy breast forms. Iíve worn the silicone forms for five years and
believe me, the Bosom Buddy is so much more comfortable. I also like the
fact that they are completely washable. It is something we really need
in hot Florida weather. Thanks too for the quick delivery."
Marguerite C., St. Petersburg FL
"You have made my summer bearable, after all these years! Thank you
and bless you!!!"
Marie D., Madison NJ
"Just think Ė if I hadnít looked at the AARP magazine I would never
have known about your product. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your
forms are so much more comfortable than silicone ones and so much
lighter. I had made myself two forms, but wonít have to any more. I had
reconstruction right after my surgery in 1988, and again in í89, but it
wasnít for me. As soon as I received your Bosom Buddies I called a
friend and she came right over. I gave her the information and she
ordered too and is quite pleased. Please continue this wonderful work."
Rosalind H., Beaumont TX
"The Bosom Buddy is too beautiful to be worn under your clothes and
too comfortable to explain. I no longer feel ashamed to take my (blouse)
off in front of other ladies. Iíve shown it to several ladies that had
their breast removed and they agree with me that they had never looked
upon anything as beautiful as my Bosom Buddy. I do intend to order
another soon. Thank you very much for your kindness. God bless you and
yours for making Bosom Buddy."
Lula T., Summit NJ
"I want to express my gratitude to everyone involved with your
business. I have been trying to get the proper shape and size for
several weeks. I am amazed at the patience of your people whether I was
talking with one of you over the phone or sending me another pair of
prosthetics to try in my homeÖ This whole experience has proved to me
how dedicated you are to helping those of us needing breast prosthetics.
I had been concerned that I couldnít get this kind of understanding and
service by going through the mails. I was certainly wrong. Thank you for
sticking with me until it came out right. God bless each of you."
Carol H., El Reno OK
"I received my Bosom Buddy and it is exactly what I needed! I am very
happy with it. It fits into my Playtex bra perfectly and is very
comfortable. I canít imagine anyone wanting to have one of the silicone
ones that are so heavy. Thank you again for Ďbeing thereí."
Vivian R., Tacoma WA
"I recently ordered two of your Bosom Buddies and am writing to tell
you how pleased I am. The lady who took my order was a pleasure to talk
with and was most helpful in determining the proper size and shape for
me. Your satisfaction guaranteed policy was appreciated too. The package
arrived just when she said it would. I immediately donned my Ďbuddiesí
and am thrilled with the comfort, weight, size and shape. During the
twelve years I have worn silicone breast forms, I have spent into the
thousands of dollars for forms (and with no help from insurance) and,
needless to say, Iím overjoyed with your prices. Thanks so much for your
product. Keep up the good work!"
Dottie P., Chattanooga TN
"I love my Bosom Buddy. Itís so comfortable, I feel like a new
Betty Jean A., Pittsburgh PA
"I am so pleased with the breast form; it is everything you said it
to be. Very comfortable and easy to wear. I am so happy to have ordered
from you. Enclosed is my doctorís prescription and Medicare claim
request. Thank you."
Helen P., Schererville IN
"Again I want to tell you how pleased I have been and still am with
your product. I donít know if Iím one of the fortunate few, but I
actually forget that Iíve had a mastectomy and I really believe that
part of it is because of the softness and flexibility of your
prosthesis. The first prosthesis I purchased not only cost a fortune but
was heavy, rigid and uncomfortable so I was extremely pleased when my
surgeon suggested trying yours. Thanks again for a wonderful product."
Marion J., S Kortright NY
"Three years ago I had bilateral mastectomies and decided against
reconstructive surgery. After trying three different brands of breast
forms, I felt discouraged, awkward and uncomfortable. When I read your
ad, frankly, the name caught my eye. Your brochure arrived, and the
price seemed so reasonable. I ordered your product and have found it to
be all (and more!) your brochure proclaimed. I decided to write to you
when one morning, while dressing for work, I looked in the mirror and
thought ĎItís nice to have breasts again.í Thank you for your part in my
