I just received my knitted knockers from Lenore, they are so nice, first time I got a swimmer one. I am a 5 year breast cancer survivor. These are so comfortable to wear. I didn’t care for silicone or foam ones. This is a wonderful organization and I appreciate your people for their dedication. God Bless

These were such a God sent, after my double mastectomy. Thank you so much.

Thank you Tracy H for my KK. I had a lumpectomy a years ago and after the swelling went down there was a noticeable difference. After a bit of tweaking to the stuffing I am now even and no longer lopsided. Thank you so much x

Thank you Gillian for knitting my KK. I am so thrilled with it. An ex work colleague who’d also had a mastectomy emailed me and told me of your charity.
It is amazing what you do. I was horrified when shown the silicone prosthesis and the weight ……. . The KK is so light and comfortable I don’t know it is there. In six months I will have my second mastectomy, not because of cancer but choice. All my life I have wished for smaller breasts and I look forward to ordering a smaller pair of Knitted Knockers. Although I’m 82 it will be wonderful to have the option of choosing the size of my breasts. There is always a silver lining. So thank you again and I look forward to contacting you in March after my surgery.

My Mom received her set and has been happily adjusting them. She has been very unhappy with the prosthesis, it is heavy and moves to the center of her body. I must admit, I did not realize what a difference it made. She will be able to go out in public with confidence. I really appreciate all the hard work and love. I can’t Thank you enough. 🙂

Thank you so very much for my knitted knockers, I can hardly wait until I heal to use them. They arrived on a day I was feeling a little low so they brighten my day. Thank you so very much!

I’m 82, just celebrated my one year survival from breast cancer and have been frustrated with the prosthesis Medicare ‘gave’ me. It’s just too heavy and grates on my scar. My knit knockers arrived today and I eagerly (well mostly) followed the directions. Pulled out a bagful of stuffing, added two stones and tried it out. With one of those t-shirt bra inserts on my leftover breast to help support it, and the knit knocker on the empty side, my mirror showed a good balance. The stones add enough weight that it droops about the same as my other breast. The weight is enough to hold the right position but not enough to rub the scar. If only I had had the forethought not to gain weight forty years ago, I wouldn’t have the glob of fat that keeps getting in the way of the prosthesis. Nobody at our local cancer center mentioned knit knockers, but I finally got the message. Many thanks to the people who thought this up and those who knit them. I can finally go to my granddaughter’s wedding feeling I’m not unbalanced (well. not physically anyway). I just could not wear my prosthesis that whole day! Praise the Lord and pass the knit knockers!

Wanted to say thank you for making these. I am 3 weeks post double mastectomy and I was struggling to find something natural looking and comfortable. My mom shared your site with me and I ordered and had a pair very quickly. They are so comfortable! I appreciate y’all more than I can express in a message. Thank you for what y’all do!

I have enjoyed knitting many kks over the past several years, but until recently, I had never met or personally known someone who wears one. In the past year, a dear friend had a double mastectomy and was very happy to learn about them. I knitted several pairs for her so she wouldn’t have to wait for kks to dry after washing them. She wanted white for normal wear and black so they would be less visible under certain dark garments. She says they are very comfortable and that her husband has commented on how natural they looked.
For what it’s worth, when I asked her if she had trouble with her bra that holds the kks riding up (as I have that problem on one side since a DCIS operation, myself), she said that wearing the kks in a fitted sort of slip top that extends down to her waist has made a big difference in keeping things in place.
I don’t think this friend is the testimonial-writing type, so I am writing in hopes of helping others who are considering trying kks. I was especially delighted to be able to do something for this dear friend, who has done a lot to help me and my husband over the years, and this experience has made the knitting I do for Knitted Knockers all the more meaningful.
