I was in despair about my prosthesis and bras and the pain they were causing. Before I visited Genevieve, I had seriously considered having my remaining healthy breast removed, so I never had to wear a bra again. I cannot express enough gratitude to Genevieve for getting me into a lightweight, well fitting breast form that was right for my body, as well as some comfortable and stylish bras and tops. My life has changed. I feel comfortable and confident again.
In late 2015, after recovering from a Goldilocks mastectomy and concurrent reduction I was recommended by a breast care nurse to contact Genevieve Gort re being fitted for a prosthesis. At this stage I still feel that I was in some shock from the sudden surgery and recovery involved with the whole breast cancer ordeal. I was ready to move on and needed to feel balanced physically again and to get out of the bra that I had been wearing since the day after the surgery!
Genevieve organised a date for a fitting and I came in from country Victoria and she collected me from Southern Cross station. It was so easy for me. Genevieve put me at ease and really understood what I needed at that time. She really goes to so much effort to make sure that everything fits right, and more importantly she finds out about YOU and what your needs are so that you get lingerie and leisure wear that really suits. She organised the Medicare rebate paperwork for the prosthesis, fitted new bras that suited my changed body and really made me feel so much better.
In late 2017, she helped me do the same thing again and realised that I was changed again and ready
for different lingerie. Plus, a better prosthesis that was new to the market and all the Medicare requirements done again. Genevieve is really understanding and is very encouraging. I think everyone who is lucky enough to come into contact with Genevieve will feel a sense of renewal and recovery and feel so much better in themselves each time. Thank you so much Genevieve.
In 2013 I had a mastectomy and luckily for me a girlfriend recommended Genevieve to have a prosthesis fitted.
Genevieve was so lovely and caring with the whole process. Her knowledge of the products available is excellent and her ability to find the perfect fit for both a prosthesis and bra is outstanding.
I have since had a reconstruction and still go to Genevieve to purchase bras as I know that they will fit perfectly and her care and attention is fantastic. She always has the latest styles available and knows what will and won’t suit me, even before I try them on.
Genevieve has an amazing attitude towards her business and it is obvious that she really loves what she does and truly cares about her clients.
I would recommend that if you find yourself needing the services that Genevieve provides, do not hesitate to give her a call. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you Genevieve
Dear Genevieve, Would like to thank you as you have made an enormous difference to my lifestyle.
For the first time in 8 years I feel comfortable with my bra and prosthesis. My shoulder straps don’t fall down and the bra doesn’t hurt me any more.
I have tried many other places but they don’t have the range or the understanding you offer.
So thank you for your thoughtfulness and understanding of my problems.
I was impressed with the precise fitting of the most suitable prothesis for me, and to find the correct, comfortable bras for both my body shape and my clothing requirements.
With extensive nursing experience Genevieve understands the physical aspects following a Mastectomy allied with a particularly stylish eye for design and clothing needs. Psychologically this has been of major importance and the product range and display gave a marvellous range of style choices.
Later purchases have been professionally despatched and received days after placing an order by phone.
An added bonus was the expertise with which Genevieve submitted all documentation and claim forms on my behalf, to Medicare to cover the cost of the breast form for the Government rebate - one less claim to consider post-surgery.
I am most appreciative of Genevieve's service and look forward to a long association with her and Breast Care Victoria.
I messaged Gen who immediately answered back. We made an appointment for the next day. I was so relieved when I arrived for my appointment. Gen spoke to me with complete understanding, compassion and professionalism. She knew the exact bra I needed and also suggested a fantastic top with built in support. (I later ordered a second)
Following my preventative mastectomy and reconstruction I was wearing a department store bought post-surgical bra which was proving to be highly uncomfortable and providing minimal support.
Genevieve fitted me with a Lipoelastic Post Surgery Compression bra and straight away I was comfortable, I had the support I needed and no more pain from the bra. I will definitely be seeing her again later in my recovery for further fittings and bras. I simply can't recommend her enough, she is so professional, caring and knowledgeable. Thank you.
Genevieve from Breast Care Victoria is amazing.
I ordered my post op bra online and delivery was fast and efficient. When I received it I was unsure I had ordered the right size and Genevieve made the time to FaceTime me so we could look at the size together. She was so very caring and kind and took the time to talk it through with me, which really helped.
I would highly recommended Breast Care Victoria for any surgical garments you are looking for.
