They are made by a very old commonly in Germany and are so very comfortable. And of incredibly high quality too! So come on in before June 30 to take advantage of this great for.

Symmetry Matters


One of the things we do every day at Spirit of Life is look after ladies who have had breast reconstruction post breast surgery. Often the results are two breasts that are not quite the same size. This happens, but can make choosing the correct size bra difficult. Now the same thing can happen with post lumpectomy breast surgery.

In both cases, what we do is provide a partial prosthesis. Covered by Medicare these come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and we find one that will enable us to fill in a smaller side and make both breast match in a bra. Just amazing little thugs and covered by Medicare. In fact you will have your entire investment refunded when you submit a claim form.

There is a little about them on our web site.

And so another year draws to a close....

Taking time out between Christmas and New Year I have been thinking about 2106. Both the highs and the lows. The world has changed in ways I could never have imagined even 10 years ago. We do live in troubled times despite what our politicians may say.

On a positive note I do hope that 2106 has been good to you and that 2017 will do the same. If this past year has not been the best, then I sincerely trust 2017 will be filled with sunshine and love for you. We close the boutique between Christmas and New Year so I can enjoy a well earned break with Mark. Being self employed, I don't get the annual 4 weeks holiday each year, so this time to break bread, to be be thankful and also to simply take time be still.. is important to me.

To the two ladies who wanted to shop for bras on Christmas Day; I am sorry to have disappointed you but for our family, Christmas is a time of special meaning for us and so the Boutique is always closed on Christmas Day. And at the risk of offending you, we make no apologies for that.

While it has been a good year for us, a week in Hawaii (frequent flyer points can work sometimes) in October, we have had our share of rainy days too as we attended too many funerals this past year. I guess as one becomes older, this is to be expected.

It just shows to me at least, that every day is precious. As Zig Ziegler once said.. "If you think that some days are not important.. just try missing one."

So we open up for business next Tuesday the 3rd and I look forward to seeing you then. Should you have a prosthesis rupture in the meantime, please email us and put URGENT in the message line with your contact details. I will try to help you out.

Mark has been repairing a friend's motor scooter.. he used to be an auto electrician in his youth.. and so sorting out the headlight on this is something he enjoys getting his teeth into. He convinced me today to be photographed on the Scooter as he likes the sun glasses and hat combination.

Transgender women are also important...


This came by email to me. I have removed the names and identifying parts of this ladies message.  All transgender women are always welcome at the boutique. We are there to help and are not judgemental at all. 




"Hello
Although your primary audience is mastectomy patients, you probably realise that there's a significant market for transgender women needing help while we "grow our own".
I have a set of Aqua Wave forms and Contact Multi 3S adhesive pads, which I picked up from the wonderful ladies at Spirit of Life Boutique, Clayfield, Brisbane.
I got them just before I left for three months in (with held) as the (with held) at the (with held) Lodge.
In the daytime, I often take long hikes up the surrounding mountains. My Amoena forms have been wonderful. Always stay in place, even during strenuous climbs in 40 degrees. And in the Lodge swimming pool after! Or spiffed up for dinner.
The concave back on the forms is allowing my own breasts to grow without the overall look becoming unnaturally large."

Cheers

There is life and lingerie after breast surgery !

We have been working in conjunction with one of our marketing guys based overseas and after seeing what we sold, he said, "There is life and lingerie after breast surgery."

To me this was a very powerful and positive message to woman who have had their own private breast cancer journey.  In fact it grabbed me so much is it now our new tag line and you will see it on our website and soon all business cards and brochures etc.

We even have a website based around it and you can view it by clicking  here:


So if you have been through your own personal journey with breast cancer and wonder where the old you went to.. then come and visit us and let us show you beautiful lingerie from the widest range of Amoena products in Australia. The new you is waiting for you to discover and we are happy to help you in your selection. Or just come for a visit and a chat and we will show you what is new and what just might suit you. There is no obligation, you will be amongst friends.

Cheers

Debra.

P.S. Some days we get so busy we have standing room only, so before you drive down from the Sunshine Coast or up from the Gold Coast.. it might not hurt to make an appointment. Just call us on (07) 3511 4222 and then we can slot you in and make sure we can have uninterrupted time with you.

Taking time out to write....

Of late I haven't had time to write on this blog. Things are really popping along at the boutique. We had an outstanding response from you our wonderful customers to our Spring/Summer Newsletter. And this November we are still going flat out with so many prostheses going to our lovely ladies this month to date.

And this month we have a had ladies from the UK, USA, NZ, Iran as well as the  Gold and Sunshine Coasts and all states of Australia popping in for a new form. I find it amazing to see how many of these ladies are suffering with really older designed forms that are so heavy.. and so hot to wear. They all leave here delighted with their new Amoena forms that are so much lighter and cooler.

It is so rewarding to see them happy and laughing when they leave.. as our tag line says...

"There is life and lingerie after breast surgery"and this is all we do here at Spirit of Life. Please drop in sometime and say hello. We would love to show you our range.

Also we now list our mastectomy bras as both fashion and basic, you can check the fashion ones here.
