hi everyone!! i work in a thrift shop and last month we got something in i never expected to see: an amoena breast form and bra. i scoured ebay to find a nearly-matching mate and make a pair so that they could make a difference in someone’s life!!
amoena make medical-grade silicone prosthetics that are very durable (and very expensive!). they’re accessible to breast cancer survivors and cis women who have had masectomies thanks to insurance, but often impossible to afford for transgender women. one lucky reblogger will get them absolutely free of charge! these are perfect for daily wear, stay put easily (especially in the included bra) and would be great for presenting as a woman full-time, even in physically demanding settings like retail or trade work.
i see a ton of giveaways for ftm-related things like binders and i figured i’d give this a try for the other lovely trans ppl of tumblr! make sure to read below for details before reblogging, and feel free to message me with questions related to the giveaway (i won’t publish unless you give me permission).
***i want these to go to a trans woman***. i’m not going to police if you’re genderqueer/fluid/agender/etc and switch between ‘she/woman’ and gender neutral language for this reason throughout this post. you should want to have breasts in your daily life, though, find them useful and be in need of them if you’re reblogging this. these are very well-made, expensive breast forms and it’s not fair if some people who need breasts and would really be helped by them physically and emotionally are reblogging this while others are just reblogging it just to get some padding for a busty cosplay.
i will send these amoena breast forms and bra to a winner who will be randomly selected through randompicker on may 21, 2014.
TO WIN, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS REBLOG.likes don’t count. you don’t have to be following me/liking other posts of mine/etc etc. if you don’t need these for yourself and are just reblogging to promote this post/show it to your friends who might be interested tag it as #signal boost and you’ll be removed from the giveaway winning pool.
i will provide shipping at my own expense, regardless of if you live in the US like i do or across the world from me. all you have to do is be comfortable giving me an address to ship these to. i can package them as discreetly as needed.
IMPORTANT SIZING DETAILS:
these are an a/b. they stick out 1-3 inches in most spots when worn. one is slightly smaller than the other but their thickness in the main part of each breast is the same, as pictures of me modeling them for y’all will show. these will have the most noticeable effect on you if you have a smaller frame, but if you’re chubby i’m sure they could also work to enhance your natural chest. they look weird in-box and are obviously pale and white looking, but have an extremely lifelike appearance + feel when worn in a bra. they aren’t really supposed to ‘show’ outside of a bra or shirt.
i didn’t seek these out to buy for a giveaway, again, i happened upon 2/3 of this giveaway package at my work, so sadly the included bra only goes up to a 34” band.
these will also ‘work’ if placed into any store-bought bra, though, they’re not really dependent on the one i’m giving them away with (even though it was made to go along with breast forms and is thus pretty dang convenient if it happens to fit you).
Now for the fun part!
Effect when worn:
(+two slightly nsfw views of them worn shirtless 1 2)
i was iffy about going through with giving these away because their size really limits who they can benefit, but at the same time, these were made for someone and if that someone is you, hopefully they’ll find their way to you and make your life a bit easier!
if this giveaway goes well i’m hoping to make a more thoughtfully planned out one in the future. i’d like to give away a realistic variety of colors/cup sizes/bra sizes and choose companies geared towards trans women so that they can be more universally useful than breast forms that, well, just happened into my life at random. i want to do this way more than just once, and ideally i’ll be able to find the means+resources once i’m out of college to do this sort of giveaway 1-3 times a year. if you wanna check upon that in the future, i’ll be sure to put any giveaway posts under my #my giveaways tag, and any breast form (etc) giveaways under a #trans giveaway tag as well.
good luck to everyone who reblogs this, and again, if you’re not reblogging these to win please tag as #signal boost! thank you!!
i am not a trans woman but i am reblogging to enter for my trans woman partner who does not frequently use tumblr, if that is not okay i will delete!
