Karen H -- aren't you a fitter?
First, get fitted. Make sure to note the type and size of prosthetic that is suggested for you.
11+ years ago, when I had a mastectomy, we were financially drained and my insurance said that I needed to pay up to my deductible, so no they weren't going to pay for the prosthetic .
At that time, I found one on Ebay that was good enough. Then someone here suggested the ACS. The ACS near me is about 45 minutes away. They had nice bras, swim bras, swim prosthetics, and regular prosthetics. I would say that I wasn't in LOVE with where I had to try on, but hey, it saved me $100's of dollars. These are items that have been gently used, or never used, or overstocks. I felt honored to receive something so precious and that someone thought to give these items to the ACS.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
