Jillianna vs Silicone

The patented Jillianna Therapeutic Bead breast form is a new and exciting addition to the family of post mastectomy non-silicone breast prostheses. Its unique design allows the wearer a cooler and more comfortable choice.

The Jillianna is not meant to take the place of your silicone breast form, but as an additional prosthesis for those times you want a cooler, lighter form. Please take a look below for some of the differences between the Jillianna and a traditional silicone form.
