Feeling excited and restless these days? You may have a bad case of spring fever.
Research confirms that the warmer days of spring have an actual effect on our mood and behaviour. Spring fever is a real phenomenon that brings with it the possibility of renewal.
Here are 5 tell tale signs of spring fever and our favourite tips for how to make the most of it.
You feel restless: Spring packs extraordinary energy. We see how that energy brings our gardens and backyards to life. And just like the earth, we too absorb the mega-hit of energy, making us want to “spring into action.”
Tip: Instead of fighting spring fever restlessness, take it on. The longer spring days are perfect for power walks. Amoena’s new Melange pocketed sports bra and legging set is super soft so you can enjoy freedom of movement in optimal comfort. As soon as you put it on, you’ll move from antsy to action. If you like making a splash, you’ll love the newly brilliantly designed Amoena swimwear that flatters everybody.
You feel love in the air: You can even hear it. The birds that wake you up in the morning with their loud chirping are calling out to attract a mate. This is nature’s season for preening and pairing.
Tip: Feeling confident about how we look and feel is the best way to preen – it gives us magnetic appeal.
Toss out any worn-out bra’s that can no longer give you a flattering lift. And replace it this spring with a gorgeous new bra that makes you feel special every time you put it on. Feel beautiful in Amoena bras adorned with feminine special touches like lace and satin to deliver a wow factor, without compromising support or comfort.
You’re impatient to try something new: Our sense of urgency to experience personal growth has deep roots. We’re programmed to respond energetically to the increase in daylight hours. We’re much like flowers that race to break through the ground and bloom while conditions are ideal.
Tip: Unsure about what you’d like to do for personal development?
Life coaches suggest you journal. They recommend writing,
“What would I like to learn?” at the top of your page. Next, jot down whatever comes to mind for 10 minutes, without stopping to question your thoughts.
To help get you into a calm, reflective mood, toss off your shoes and bra, and lounge luxuriously in Amoena’s leisure wear. All tops and nightdresses have a built-in shelf for support so you can be comfortable and still look perfectly presentable in company. New this spring is the Cozy Top, a strappy cami shirt in an unbelievably soft, lush fabric that delivers instant aaahhh.
You feel like cleaning the house: You’re not alone. Flamingos are another species that like to prep their nest in spring-in their case, it’s a long six-week activity to get their home just right.
Tip: To declutter your wardrobe, remember that one versatile top can do the job of many. All pocketed tops from Amoena are designed to be dressed up or down to fit any occasion. A new notable this spring is the Heart Neckline top. A light long sleeve shirt with mesh shoulders and arms. It’s an ideal go-to that will always look impeccable and stylish.
You feel like changing up for your menu: Studies show we tend to eat less fruit and vegetables in winter. With spring, our bodies crave more colourful foods with higher vitamins.
Tip: Nutritional experts say spring yields revive our spirits and our health. Now is the season to enjoy young greens and fast growing plants.
There are few ailments as enjoyable as spring fever. If you have the telltale signs, take these as your cues to prepare for your own blossoming.
All Amoena bras, swimwear, and tops have advanced pocket technology to assure total discretion and security if you wear breast forms or breast shapers.
A bra designed to beat the heat:
The unique Bianca mastectomy bra by Amoena is made with spacer foam that has tiny air pockets to let air flow through the cup and is perfect for summer temps. It provides lightweight comfort. Of course, all Amoena bras are pocketed, and made of highest quality breathable fabric.
Wish you could go braless in the heat?
You can thanks to the built-in pocketed shelf bra in our hugely popular Amoena Valletta Camisole top. The Amoena Valletta, with modest rounded neckline, is so flattering, soft and comfortable, it may be all you’ll ever want to wear in a heat wave.
Amoena Breast forms with a cooling effect:
Most Amoena breast forms, and all Amoena Breast Shapers, include the revolutionary patented Comfort + technology. When you perspire, microcapsules in the form absorb your excess heat. It’s integrated in the Amoena Contact adhesive form, Natura, and Energy forms.
The coolest breast form of all:
Great for active women and hot flushes, the Amoena Energy breast form has a unique three dimensional pearl surface on the back of the breast form which allows air to flow freely behind the form, increasing ventilation and moisture evaporation. The Energy has 30% more Comfort+ material than the Natura.
Hydrate and dive:
The Amoena Aqua Wave breast form is made for swimming. This breast form has a hollowed back so water flows through without accumulating. It’s very light and quick drying, and gives you a lovely shape. You can even keep it in your Amoena swimsuit so you can get into the water faster.
Give lots of hugs, especially to yourself because you deserve it:
Hugging calms us, decreases our blood pressure, and increases the release of feel-good hormones. A study out of the UK says even hugging ourselves sends a positive message to the brain and is found to “significantly” relieve pain.
Amoena breast forms pass the hug test:
Of course, you’ll want to share the hugs, with family, friends … and perhaps your fitter. Hug tight in complete confidence with Amoena’s breast forms that feel and look so natural.
Ask yourself for a dance:
Dance at home to your favourite music, or take a dance class. It’s good for your heart—literally. Dancing increases physical health and overall happiness. And it’s also shown to keep our brains younger, and improve memory.
What to wear to the dance studio?
You can’t go wrong with the long lasting Amoena sports top, with integrated shelf bra. It gives you security and support to move in confidence (and can hold a partial or breast form). We love the flattering fit that’s not too tight, and wonderful performance fabric.
Wear bras that feel good:
Being kind to yourself means refusing to wear a mastectomy bra that doesn’t fit properly and that can hurt your back, your neck, chaff your skin, and make you irritable.
Breathe better in a bra that comforts:
The Amy Seamless mastectomy bra is a perfect example. Ultra soft, it feels like a smooth second skin. All the pocketed bras in the Amoena comfort collection have special features so you’ll feel care-free, confident, at ease.
Wellness experts say taking time regularly to cloud gaze is like a mini-meditation that uplifts our spirit, and activates our creativity. Intrigued? Learn more at www.cloudappreciation society.org.
Cloud watching fashion?:
Anything goes, but we like the versatile Amoena Valletta. This flattering and comfortable strappy pocketed top with built-in shelf bra will take you from work, to workout, to watching the clouds go by.
A study out of the UK shows 68% don’t ever bother with a sports bra.
And it has been found most women who wear a sports bra don’t trade in for a new one often enough so their bra no longer provides the right support or fit. It’s time to spread the word on why it matters to wear a sports bra.
Top 2 reasons to wear a properly fitted Amoena sports bra.

Top 5 reasons to wear an Amoena sports bra
Amoena’s Energy breast form is made for the active woman
When breast imbalance is an issue, we have an ingenious solution.
There are several reasons why a woman may have significantly uneven breasts – it could be due to natural development or as a result of a lumpectomy or reconstruction. Still, many women don’t talk about this common issue, and just try to make do. They either tolerate bras that fit only one breast properly or they use bulky, generic fillers.
It’s 2018! We have far more advanced solutions available. Let’s talk about it.
Thanks to revolutionary technology, the Amoena Balance Breast Shapers actually mould to your own breast tissue to fill out your bra cup perfectly.
Also known as symmetry shapers, bra inserts or breast enhancers, they are truly the most easy, comfortable way to have a gorgeous, balanced, silhouette.
7 reasons why Amoena Balance Breast Shapers are worth talking about
Amoena breast shapers are curved to match the body shape, and have specially designed thin tapered edges so you can’t spot them, even under the tightest tops.
Just slip into any bra as they adhere gently to the breast, or slip into the pocket of a mastectomy bra. In less than a minute, you’re ready to go to work, to the gym, for a jog, and out dancing.
You can place them anywhere in your bra cup to fill out exactly where you need it – underneath to lift up, or on the side to enhance a décolleté.
It’s natural for teens to have one breast develop faster than the other. But we know that imbalance can be upsetting to this painfully self-conscious age group. These invisible shapers make them feel confident about how they look in their clothes. And because of their lifelike feel, they relax knowing they are hug-safe.
Amoena has the largest variety of Balance Breast Shapers. They come in so many different sizes, shapes, and thickness so that your fitter can make sure you wear the one that is perfect for you.
Some models feature Comfort+ technology that absorbs when your body temperature rises and release it back to the body when your temperature lowers.
Right now, Balancers are mostly a little secret between you and your fitter. But spread the word to the women in your life. All it takes is a small thing to make a huge difference to someone’s confidence and comfort.

Our new Amoena mastectomy swimsuit collection is here, and it’s winning rave reviews.
Women love it. Customers tell us before they discovered Amoena, they dreaded swimsuit shopping. Now they’re having a blast trying on 1-pieces, 2-pieces, tankinis, and swimdresses in gorgeous florals and colours.
That’s because Amoena mastectomy swimwear is like no other. These are smart solution swimsuits that intelligently address body image concerns.
Amoena designers integrate all kinds of hidden touches to create different styles to flatter different body types. Each style has its own unique features.
But here are our 8 favourite Amoena design secrets
Amoena mastectomy swimsuits have built-in bras with soft cups that provide excellent support and gentle bust shaping which flatters everyone.
For breast form wearers, this pocketed swimwear provides absolute discretion and security. You can move freely, confidently, with no worries about breast forms slipping or falling forward, even in a wet bathing suit. The pockets are accessible making it so easy for you.
It’s remarkable how just a slightly higher cut under the arms gives you a more flattering line. It’s not excess coverage, but the cut provides added security and peace of mind, and can camouflage high scarring.
Many women are a little thigh-shy, although there’s no need. Amoena’s leg-line is especially cut to flatter, and this year’s collection provides many options, including boy legs and sarong style.
Sometimes adjustable straps change how the swimsuit looks and performs for you. Those who want them will love the styles that have them.
High-five to Amoena for this design feat. Their swimsuits with tummy and/or bottom control linings made of supportive Lycra help enhance the figure, but – and this is key — without giving you that uncomfortable feeling of tightness. Yes, you can breathe!
It’s no surprise that the brand that leads in breast support offers swimwear styles in different cup sizes.
Back for a reason:
Once again, the Amoena swimsuit back is at 2.5 to 5 cm below the bra line. This is for assured security and comfort. And it looks really pretty.
Here’s a nice touch. Some bikinis in the collection have soft underwiring to adapt to your shape and provide support without discomfort. Be assured, the flexible under wiring won’t damage Amoena breast forms.
