"I smiled, looking in the mirror for the first time in 2 years. Thanks so much for the wonderful wig!"

“Keep up the good work, life is easier for me now that I know you exist.”
“I paid over $100 for a wig at a wig salon – and I like your wigs so much better. The inside webbing is so comfortable on a bald head. They are so attractive and not wiggy looking.
"I am so pleased. I have a place to order from and be satisfied. Thanks!!!"
"I am so happy to know you & do business with you. Between the quality, price, etc – I could not do better. I have 2 wigs & will probably get 1 more. The person who cuts the wigs (when necessary) says they are as fine as the expensive ones she services. Thanks millions!!"

"Every order I have made arrived quickly, and in excellent shape. Thank you for this catalog. I really don't know how I would have gotten thru treatment without you! Thank you for you!"

"You should have several copies of this great catalog available in every Oncology doctor's office. Your wigs are wonderful quality for the price."
"Losing hair is a horrible thing, and TLC's phone operators were wonderful. They were sympathetic, and knowledgeable about the products. It helped to hear a kind voice on the phone offering suggestions and listening when I rambled on about having cancer. Thank you for a good experience in such a trying time in my life!"
"Thank you so much for your wonderful catalog. Every item is pretty and feminine. So far I have been very pleased...the wig I purchased is great. And they are all priced very reasonably. No one knows that I'm wearing a wig. Thanks again for a great catalog."

"I am pleased with all the services-but most of all the help I had from the phone operators and the fast delivery. Thank you."
TLC is wonderful! Don't change anything!!"

"Your staff on the phone have been outstanding, patient, understanding, compassionate and accommodating."
"I purchased 2 wigs from TLC and have been thoroughly satisfied with both. I received many comments on how natural they look. They are very affordable. It is wonderful to have TLC for people who can't afford store prices. Actually I purchased a $200 wig first. I find I am wearing your 2 more."
"The bras were really great, feel good and wear well. The price is great. I had been paying twice your price."
"The very best service I could ever hope to have—good quality and fair prices."
"During a routine exam this past June, my doctor discovered I had breast cancer. My surgery was July 16 and chemo started July 30. Two weeks later all my long brown hair fell out. In a panic I went to a wig salon where the sales person assured me that I would never find a wig that looked natural. I ended up paying $150 for the wig and cried all the way home. As with all wig shops, there were No Returns allowed. When I wore this wig I avoided shopping in crowds. When we went out to eat, I would ask my husband to choose a table in the back. I have always been a proud person and now I had no self-esteem.
I got your catalog from my doctor's office. I ordered my wig for $45. Now, I no longer ask my husband how my wig looks. I say, "How does my hair look?" I feel great about myself again. My "hair" is bouncy and natural. It has helped give me back me. I don't avoid anyone and I no longer fear going back to work. My "hair" is a different style than before my chemo and everyone tells me how young I look.
I'm a lucky person. All my cancer was removed. My faith in God, myself and my choice of doctors is so strong and having a great husband and a positive attitude have given me the courage to carry on.
Thank you TLC for your part in helping me recover emotionally."
Thanks to "tlc," I have a wonderful new wig that matches my hair color and style perfectly. And it's such a comfortable fit! Thanks so much for being there, TLC.
My mother-in-law was diagnosed with lung cancer in '97. She was a proud woman and the TLC products helped her to see herself as a lady with a hat on instead of a lady with no hair. I thank you for taking the time to design products that are fashionable and easy to wear. TLC is a great catalog and it means a lot to those with cancer and their families.
Feedback on TLC: I think it is fantastic...I felt like there was specialized, private, sensitive support and resources for my situation.
I received my bras and prosthesis..and I was so pleased with them. I have had other bras and prostheses and was never completely happy...This time was so different—it was almost like I was before with no problems.
Thank you for being there. You were a blessing at a very difficult point of my life. Your products are high quality and well thought out.

How to Measure for a proper Fit
Did you know that a woman's bra size can fluctuate from year to year and sometimes even month to month? On average, you should measure yourself at least once a year but more frequently if you go up or down a size in your regular clothing. That's why it's important to know how to property measure yourself, so you can choose a comfortable bra with confidence; a bra that will look great an feel good!
Choosing a bra that gives you the comfort you need will be a breeze when you fllow these few simple steps, so let's get started!
There are two aspects to finding your correct bra size and they are band size and cups size. The band size is the size of the bra brand around the torso. The cup size is the circumference measured around the bust over the fullest part of the breast.
First you'll need a standard tape measure. You should be able to find one at your local sewing store or even at your local drug store. It's inexpensive and handy to have around. Second, you'll need to put a comfortable, well-fitting, non-padded bra.
Step 1 - Measure Your Band Size (Under Breast)
With your bra and starting at zero on the tape measure place it directly undermeath the breast where the bra band sits. Make sure that the measuring tap runs horizintally around the upper body and is at the same height in the front and the back. The measuring tap should provides 90% of your support. If it's not tight enough your bra band will be loose and will not be supportive enough. (You may want to enlist the help of a close friend to help, if you need help.)
Measure underearth the bust line from the center breastbone in the front all the way around.
Write down the nmber of inches. If that number is a fration, round it up to the next whole number.
Step 2 - Measure Your Cup Size (Over Breast)
Mext! You're going to measure your half-chest circumference. Make sure that the measuring tape runs horizontally around the upper body and is at the same height in the front and the back of the body. Starting at zero on the tape measure, position the tape measure at the center the spine in the back then loosely wrap the tape measure over the fullest part of your breast directly above the nipple.
Write down the munber of inches, then double that number. If that number is a fraction, round it up to the next whole number.
Step 3 - Calculate Your Cup Size
Numw, Subtract your brand size measurement from your cup size measurement and that will give you your cup size.
Cup size for a double mastectomy would be the same at that wom prior to surgery. If you want to go larger or smaller, select one size above or below your previous size.
Step 4 - Determine Your Bra Size
Finally, all you need to do is combine the cup size with your brand measure to determine your bra size. For example, 38B means you have a 38-inch band and a B cup.
How to know when Your Bra is a Good Fit
Now that you know how to determine your bra size here are a few helpful hints on how to know when your bra is a good fit:
Tip: Because cup size can fluctuate base on weight change, hormonal changes, bloting, or further surgery try to check your bra size from time to time. Also, try to measure on a day when your breast feels relatively normal. Many women buy a bra style that they love in two sizes - one size for regular days and a size up for days when they feel a little fuller, that way they can avoid the discomfort of having to squeeze themselves into a bra that's temporarily too small.
Now that we've got the technical stuff out of the way, let's move on to chooseing a wonderful new bra!
