Homespun Breast Solutions

Beryl Tsang has a simple, DIY solution for women who have undergone mastectomy and want to even things out with a breast prosthesis - knit your own. This breast cancer survivor found the entrepreneurial spirit and founded Tit Bits after being unsatisfied with expensive commercial prostheses, and began knitting her own devices, which are cheaper and can be worn inside a regular bra. Beryl's story, along with directions for making your own, can be found here, or you can purchase one from the Tit Bits website. Your options include "everday" (flesh colors), "fancy" (patterned), or "floosie" (hot pink!); there are also choices for size, nipple, piercing, weighting, and yarn type. It sounds a little crazy, but after looking at the product online, I don't see why this couldn't work. And you'd never be without a hacky sack. :)
Thanks to Boing Boing for the heads up
