After breast cancer surgery, it might feel as though your days of being fashionable have come to an end. It can be difficult to find mastectomy bras and camis that make you feel and look confident, much less sexy. This usually applies to mastectomy swimsuits as well, and the full-coverage, modest swimsuits seem to be designed for older women who are more concerned with function over fashion.
It is possible to find great mastectomy swimwear that combines both fashion and function for a perfect fit. Here’s our certified fitters’ guide to some of the chicest mastectomy swimsuits on the market.
Amoena Cocos One Piece Mastectomy Swimsuit
This post-surgery swimsuit gives off major minimalist and modern vibes, with its laser-cut detailing below the bustline adding a slimming focal point to accentuate your curves while still looking streamlined. The medium neckline allows for swim form security without feeling too restrictive.
If you want to show a low back, you can simply remove the horizontal strap attached to the suit for just the right amount of sexy. If you’re not feeling as daring, leave the strap on for extra security. This suit has high chlorine resistance, making it ideal for use in the pool.
Amoena Cocos Mastectomy Swim Top
This bikini top allows you to be confident in the water or on land. This basic yet bold solid black swim top affords accessibility with front zipper closure. Special features include molded cups that provide the coverage you need to feel comfortable as well as stylish, in addition to secure pockets for breast form security.
The suit offers adjustable straps for your convenience and wire-free soft cups for ultimate comfort. Ruching of the front material provides a flattering yet feminine look, and lightly padded foam cups allow for a beautiful silhouette. This suit is available in cup sizes B and C.
Amoena Ayon Half Bodice Mastectomy Swimsuit
Some higher necklines in swimwear might seem dowdy or prim, but this sleek design in a geometric print is still sexy. The pocketed bra cups keep swim forms in place, and the light shaping effect in the front creates a slimming effect with ruching. The medium height back also stays in place with its adjustable and comfortable elastic straps.
Amoena mastectomy bathing suits are known for their long-lasting fit and shape retention along with high chlorine resistance. This piece is an excellent choice for an active, yet fashionable day spent either at the pool or on the beach.
