The breast form stock situation has been going on longer than I wanted it to, so I just want to update you all about where I am at.
I decided a couple of months ago to make some changes to my breast forms shapes, and to increase the thickness of the back on the breast forms in order to help with using the tape with them. I thought this would be like one of my normal tweaks, but it turns out I was wrong! This is what has happened
I looked at customer feedback for the shapes and did some slightly edited designs.
I brought in more boobylicious tape, and the feedback was great. Quite a few customers said that a thicker breast form back would really help when removing the tape. This makes absolute sense, and with the extra pressure put on the back of the breast forms, make them stronger too.
I chatted to my factory and we started working on the new designs. It all seemed to be going really well!
Once the moulds for the breast forms were made, we found out that the thicker back was not possible with the kind of machinery the factory has. By this stage, I was really determined that this is the best way forward for my breast forms. I've tried working hard with the factory to make it work, but it has failed.
Undeterred, I have chatted to one of my other factories which make my smaller breast enhancers, and they felt ready to take this step with me, which is very exiting! They share my vision and have the machinery needed to make it a reality, so we just needed to make the moulds. We made a prototype and it was fabulous!
The moulds have now all been designed for all the styles now, apart from teardrop 2.
Finally, we are getting there!
Production is now beginning on teardrop style 1, pear, round and triangle. These will be made first, and sent out asap.
The final design and moulds will begin soon for teardrop style 2. These will then be made ASAP and in my store as soon as I can get them in there.
This process has been so much longer than I planned.
Thank you SO MUCH for your patience and I promise that it will be worth it. The new forms will be soft and supple, strong and designed to sit perfectly, so that I have a perfect option for everyone. I knew that if it was worth doing, it was worth doing well and that you would all trust me, even if it took time, to get it right for you.
In the meantime, I have some breast forms still left, and some sample runs from my departed from factory, so I will get those up in the store for you at some great prices :)
I will keep you updated as it progresses.
