the company, which led to a colleague having to undergo breast surgery. Dr
Weber-Unger began to sew fabric breast forms using simple materials which were
filled with rice. The first bras containing pockets to hold breast forms were
also designed at the same time. The first liquid-filled breast forms were then
developed and sold at the end of the 60s.
The idea of using silicon to fill a casing made from material which closely resembled the skin, thus achieving a much more natural breast form, came about in the US at the beginning of the 70s. The idea was picked up on by Dr Weber-Unger and perfected to maturity for ANITA.
Breast forms and related lingerie and swimwear are still developed today, just as Dr Weber-Unger had envisaged.
