Episode 8, Series 2: Perfect Again is where you go to find a light bra form that suits your personal needs after a mastectomy. These bra forms are just one option to consider when you’ve already endured the medical and personal trauma of breast cancer and want to look like yourself again. You won’t feel weighed down.
Julie Brand of Perfect Again was in the same situation in 2002, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After a mastectomy and an unsuccessful reconstruction which lasted for seven months, she asked her plastic surgeon to remove the breast implant.
Perfect again isn’t just your average bra form. The passion for Julie’s business is reflected in the table banging she does as she speaks. Her business is a personal commitment to her unique customer base to help them begin to feel perfect again. Perfect Again’s Facebook has ongoing information about these breast forms.
“After it came out, I needed a breast form but the only products available at the time were ill fitting, uncomfortable and poorly designed,” Julie says.
As an artist who had ‘always made stuff’ Julie decided to design and make an external breast prosthesis for herself.
“There were none on the market that appealed to me. I intuitively knew that if I wasn’t happy with a weighted breast form, other women wouldn’t be happy either. So my partner Franco, an Italian ship-wright and a man who can make anything, decided we’d get into it and Perfect Again was born!” And now it’s 6 years since they began!
Perfect Again Breast Forms are: – lightweight – comfortable. You won’t feel you’re wearing them – beautiful to wear in gorgeous lingerie – perfect for watersports and being active again.
#isewneedafriend by makingmarilynemulatingelle Hey Aussie and International sewing peeps. Many people are going to be in quarantine in the next few weeks and months. Some of us will emotionally struggle with being on their own, especially if they are anxious or depressed. So, I’m trying to start #isewneedafriend. I’m going to have this hashtag on notifications. If you are anxious, depressed, or just have cabin fever, do a post with #isewneedafriend. Otherwise send me a message and I will happily chat with you about anything and everything if I am awake. Let’s get through this together sewing peeps!!!!
#sewstayhome by Gillian of @sewcialists Looks like a lot of us will be staying home a lot to slow the spread of COVID-19, and we here at @sewcialists are wondering how we can help during this stressful time! 🥰We know that a lot of Sewcialists are anxious and introverted, and that a lot of our community have health concerns that makes them more vulnerable.

We would love to hear your ideas and suggestions below on how we could give everyone a nice safe spot in their day! 💡 💡 💡 whats a fun project we could start as a community? – Gillian #sewstayhome

2. Sew with a friend virtually: I know we’re all being advised to stay home if we can, but dang it that’s isolating! Check in on a sewing friend and have some good talking time while you sew together over a video chat. It’ll help both of you, plus you’ll get some stuff done!
4. Sew up your nicest fabric: in uncertain times, maybe reach for your nicest fabric and sew it up into something you’ve been dreaming of. There’s no time like the present, eh? I myself am going between eyeing some silk jersey and real leather…
