Ruth Brennan is the most knowledgeable fitter I’ve known. She combines this expertise with her compassion as an RN. Ruth knew the exact style and size I needed to compensate for the part of me that was missing as a result of a modified radical mastectomy and lymph node removal.
I felt very comfortable throughout the fitting. Ruth was sensitive to my specific needs and concerns– very knowledgeable, no rush – took time to find about my needs and knew what styles would work well for me. I didn’t realize I could wear a bra that didn’t come with a generic built-in pocket. I had no idea that a beautiful lacy bra could work with a prosthesis. Ruth can personalize every style and color of bra by adding a pocket to a “normal” bra and positioning it to perfectly align your prosthesis. I was brought to tears as I realized I no longer need to be self-conscious.
Changing the type of bra that I’ve been wearing makes me feel more confident to wear styles of clothing that I haven’t worn since my surgery. Ruth introduced me to the possibility of many new styles of bras. After 7 years, I am finally looking real and even.
