It's been a few years since I used a bow and I never had breasts so the usual caviat of free advice being worth what you paid for it may well go double but ...
Slapping the wrist with the string usually means that the wrist is turned out too much. A bracer can help if pain from slapping the arm is an issue, I stopped wearing one when I had the correct arm position in muscle memory.
Hitting the breast may well be opening the stance too much, especially if the string is drawn close rather than to the ear as it should be. Chest guards (http://www.quicksarchery.co.uk/superbasket/category/1096/Chestguards) can help in a similar way to bracers. However long term the answer is changing the stance to move the breast out of the line of the string because if the string hits anything, including a chest guard, as you loose the shaft will not go where you were aiming. Try drawing and slowly releasing the tension on the string as you hold it so you can see the path it takes and correct your stance accordingly. You may wish to wear something quite stout for a while as you do this, or a chestguard, because I'm told that when the string just barely clips the breast is when it really hurts.
It sounds to me like her release is bad. If you picture a shooting position, draw the string back to your cheek and touch your thumb. release the fingers without moving the thumb or letting the contact break. If you pull the hand out as you release, the string will snap in and that is when people get the bruises. Also Hakon's advise about the wrist was good too. _________________ Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts.
