A great way to recover after breast cancer surgery is to get back to doing the activities you love. Swimming and other water sports can aid the healing process and boost your confidence, but you need to have the right swimsuit to support your new body.
There is a huge range of gorgeous post-mastectomy swimsuits available so you can look and feel good in the water. To help you find the best swimsuit for you, here are our six best swimsuit brands for breast cancer thrivers.
Amoena is one of the leading brands of mastectomy swimwear. They are known for their classically designed feminine suits that feature luxurious detailing including lace panels and metallic accents. But their approach to design also ensures that your swimsuit is comfortable and supportive as well as gorgeous.
One of the side effects of cancer treatment such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy is heightened skin sensitivity. Amoena brand swimsuits are constructed from ultra soft quick-dry material that prevents dry, chafed skin after swimming. The LYCRA XTRA LIFE fabric is also UV resistant and offers exceptional shape retention so that you can enjoy your swimsuit for years.
Anita proves that you don’t need to give up your bikini after a mastectomy. Their range of flirty floral bikini separates offer support and style.
Anita bikini tops feature soft, molded cups with built-in pockets to hold swim forms. Adjustable straps keep your swim top secure, while an adjustable neckline allows you to bare as much as you dare.
The team at Jodee want all breast cancer survivors to feel confident in the water, so they have designed their swimsuits with a range of functional features that offer support, comfort and security.
Every suit has a high neckline and small armholes to disguise surgical scars, as well as bilateral pockets to hold your swim forms. Their selection of one-piece suits and sarong-style suits feature a tummy control panel to give you a slender silhouette.
If you love fun and flirty designs but still want coverage, then T.H.E is the swimsuit brand for you. Their range of stunning blouson and tankini-style suits come in a range of floral and tropical patterns with delicate feminine style elements such as ruffles and draping to flatter your body and help you feel your best.
T.H.E also offer a range of swim skirts and swim dresses for extra coverage on your bottom half, and all their suits come in sizes 4-20.
Mastectomy surgery doesn’t mean that you need to put away your bikini. Penbrooke have designed a range of sleek and sexy separates, as well as their collection on tankinis and one-piece suits, that will ensure you make a splash this swimsuit season.
Penbrooke suits come in a range of styles from sexy retro maillot suits and ultra high waisted bikini briefs to modest tankinis in stylish leaf prints. Their suits are designed with your comfort in mind and feature pockets for swim forms and high necklines.
