If you need to know how to attach breast forms, follow these simple steps and your forms will stay in place all day and everyday without a bra. There are a few important steps you will need to take in order to effectively attach them so they do not fall off. Making sure they are put on correctly will not only help them stay on securely but ensure you get years of use from your breast forms. Check out the steps below or watch our YouTube video, “Breast Form Attachment”. Let’s begin!
Tip: Start the process by attaching your bra around your body and then flipping it over (see photo above).
Prepping the area: Be sure to shave your chest thoroughly before you begin! Trust me, you do not want your breast forms pulling off your chest hair in the removal process! Ouch!
After you remove all the unnecessary hair from the area you are using, you can begin to cleanse the skin. Using a simple alcohol rub pad you can begin to remove any leftover soap or body oil from the skin.
Positioning: Begin positioning your breast forms on your chest in the desired spot you would like them to attach. Then, simply take an eyebrow/eyeliner pencil and begin to lightly mark where you will place the breast form. This will give you a clear picture of where to place the breast forms once you apply the adhesive glue.
Applying Adhesive: Wipe the area with a fresh Skin Tac wipe. Then, take your first breast form and hold it about half an arm’s length away from your Hollister Spray Adhesive. Shake the Hollister well before pressing the nozzle. Begin to spray the back of your form with the adhesive in a circular motion. Try to accurately spray the form so glue doesn’t get everywhere. Take your time with this and remember it does not have to be perfect circles. Tip: Do NOT over spray with Hollister Adhesive Spray – too much glue and it does not work properly.
First Attachment: Place your sprayed breast form onto your chest where you have previously outlined Gently push the breast form into your skin to transfer some of the glue onto your skin. Now, gently remove the breast form from your chest completely. (If you have used Skin Tac, you can miss out the First Attachment step) Once First Attachment or Skin Tac has been applied for both sides, spray the backs of your breast forms again with the Hollister spray adhesive and leave them to rest for 3-5 minutes until they get tacky.
Final Attachment: Take both breast forms and place them back onto your chest where you originally placed them the first time. When the tacky glue meets the glue that is already on the skin, it creates a strong seal that will keep your breast forms in place for a long time. Now, to lock them in, flip your bra up for support. Leave your bra on for at least 20 minutes. After the initial 20 minutes your breast forms should be ready to wear topless!
Attaching your breast forms this way will insure a long lasting hold! This means you will be able to wear more revealing clothing, strapless dresses/tops, and lingerie while feeling more like a woman! Take a look at our affordable breast forms now!
