What Type of Mastectomy Swimsuit is Right for Me?

We know swimsuit shopping isn’t always easy – and that it can seem even harder when you consider the additional factors that arise after breast surgery. But just because it’s gotten a little harder to find a swimsuit fit for you doesn’t mean it’s not out there. Of course, the fit isn’t the only thing you need to consider when finding your ideal mastectomy swimsuit. You should also think about how you intend to use it. Are your swimming plans more active or leisurely? How does style factor into your must-have swimsuit needs? Can you be comfortable all day in a mastectomy swimsuit? Keep reading for our suggestions on the mastectomy swimwear most suited for your summer-fun needs and get ready to make some waves this summer.

The Active Swimmer:

It’s no secret that swimming on a regular basis can be beneficial for your health. In fact, many women recovering from breast surgery choose swimming as a first step back into the world of moderate exercise and healthy living. For women who spend the majority of their pool time lap swimming or enjoying aqua aerobics, finding a mastectomy swimsuit capable of keeping up is key. The last thing you want is to have to stop between strokes to adjust a strap or sagging neckline. Instead, opt for a one-piece mastectomy swimsuit specifically designed to stay put so you can focus on recovering instead of readjusting again and again. Made from LYCRA® Xtra Life™ spandex, our Women’s Mastectomy Tugless One Piece Swimsuit offers superior stretch and recovery so your suit will never look worn out (no matter how hard you work it). Plus, it’s made to resist breakdown from chlorine, sunscreen, sweat, and harmful UV rays. Of course, you’ll also find other features in our Tugless suits that are standard for our other mastectomy swimsuits, like higher necklines and armholes for more coverage and soft cup bras with prosthesis pockets for optional insert use. Because how you want to look after surgery is up to you – we’re just here to help you achieve it.

The World Traveler:

When you’re on vacation, versatility is key. After all, you want to be able to go wherever the adventure takes you, and worrying about whether or not your minimalist wardrobe can go with the flow isn’t really on the agenda. That’s where two-piece mastectomy modest swimsuits come in. Made with freedom and flexibility in mind, the best part about two-piece swimsuits is the ability to mix and match the tops and bottoms to fit your every whim and desire. Want to take a kayaking tour of the beaches or explore the reefs with a snorkel and fins? No problem when you have a high neck modest tankini top providing even more coverage for your chest and back. And one of the best things about swimsuit bottoms is they take up virtually no room in a suitcase, making it easy to justify packing a variety of styles to accommodate whatever swim-ventures may arise.

The Pool-Side Lounger:

Relaxing by the pool on a hot day is one of those quintessential joys of summer you just don’t want to miss. And, even if you plan on lounging most of the day away, you still want a swimsuit that fits as well and looks good. That’s why we love the mastectomy tankini tops with adjustable straps. Ideal for customizing the fit you want, these swim tops with slightly higher necklines are not only stylish but offer flattering coverage while maintaining that classic tankini look. But of course, feeling comfortable in a swimsuit isn’t all about the swim top. Finding the proper swim bottom is just as important for those carefree pool days. If you want a little extra help maintaining that slimming silhouette you love, consider a pair of tummy control high-waisted swim bottoms. Or, if you’d rather maximize the coverage for added UPF 50 sun protection, a stylish modest swim skirt or swim leggings could be exactly what you’re looking for. And, while catching a few rays on a hot day is good for the soul, it’s not always the best idea for the skin. Keep a comfy, cotton swim cover-up dress close by for a little extra sun protection, and you’ll be more than ready to tackle a day of sunny rest and relaxation.
