About Brand New Your Mastectomy Boutique


Brand New You Mastectomy Boutique has been serving the specials needs of Breast Cancer Survivors in Thunder Bay and region since 2001. I recognize that understanding and compassion go hand in hand with providing the utmost personalized service to these women.

My name is Lori Vanhapelto and I have been a Certified Fitter with the Assistive Devices Program, a division of the Ministry of Health, since 1991. I received my certifications from both Airway Surgical and Amoena. Since that time, I have also attended courses covering the latest in products available. As well as having access to the newest breast prostheses, I now carry four different lines of post-mastectomy bras. These bras come in many colours and sizes from AA to H.

Before being fitted for a breast prosethesis and a post-mastecomy bra, a comfortable camisole is available that can be worn leaving the hospital. It comes with two fiberfill forms that can be put into the pockets of the camisole to give you shape and pouches to hide any drainage devices. It is very discreet and can be worn right up until the time of a fitting can be done for a prosethesis and bra.

As well as prostheses and bras, I also carry post-mastectomy swimwear. These bathing suits have an opening on the sides of each cup to accommodate a swim form. Amoena carries a wide range of suits that are available both in the spring and fall with a wide variety of colours and styles. There is also a swim form that is available to accommodate your bathing suit that can be used in both salt and chlorinated water.

In recent months I have been working with Dr. Sanjay Azad, the new plastic surgeon in Thunder Bay. Following reconstructive surgery, it is very important to wear compression products. I have recently takea a one day fitting coarse on the measuring and fitting of bras, girdles and facila garments that should be worn after surgery.

My office is out of my home. I have a bright clean fitting room which is off a warm inviting rec room where a fire place will keep both yourself and any family member or friend comfortable. If you cannot come to me, I can easily come to you. I also offer home visits. All services are private and by appointment

I look forward to meeting with you in the future.

Yours in health,

Lori Vanhapelto
Brand New You - Owner
