Testimonials

"I'm an aggressive windsurfer, and I love to spend time working hard in the gym. Reconstruction after my mastectomy and radiation would have involved many surgeries, recovery time, more scars, and possible risk of disfigurement, infection, and failure, none of which appealed to me. Four years ago, I had my custom prosthesis made for me and I could not do without it today. It is light, very comfortable, needs no maintenance, and stands up to extremely vigorous exercise. I pop it into any of my bras and camisole tops and the best part is, it's a perfect match to my other side! Nobody knows I am wearing it, even in my bikinis. My custom prosthesis from New Attitude is the perfect solution."
NJ, 45 Years Old (Underwent a Right Mastectomy)

"I have to tell you I am very satisfied with my prosthesis. I had something happen to me on Tuesday and I just had to share it with the person responsible. I was leaving the post office and as I was going out the door, a young man was walking in. As he walked by me he said, "nice boobies". When I told my husband that night, he laughed so hard that he cried. It wasn't that he didn't think I deserved the compliment. More to the point, he thought you did. So I had to share it with you."
PE, 38 Years Old (Underwent a Bilateral Mastectomy)

"After a drastic lumpectomy, reconstructive surgery failed for me, and I was left to choose other alternatives. After some research, I found Irene Healey's superior breast prosthesis. Her meticulous attention to detail has produced a spectacular likeness that I now feel extremely confident in the clothing I wear, in the sports I play. In the right outfit, I can even go braless!"
