A guide to mastectomy swimwear  

Shopping for mastectomy swimwear can be a daunting experience. Your body has changed, and you might be unsure of what you can and cannot wear – this doesn’t mean it can’t be a positive experience. "Normal" swimwear may not offer you the support and comfort you’re hoping for, mastectomy swimwear on the other hand can provide you with both. Any feelings of being self-conscious lessen when you’re wearing swimwear made especially for you. 

Can I swim after a mastectomy?  

Absolutely! Once you’ve got the all-clear from your doctor, you can take part in gentle water activities, in fact swimming is a great way to get back into exercise – begin with a moderate fitness regime and consistently check in with a medical professional. If you’re ready to get into a pool and are looking for trendy post-surgery swimwear, you’ve come to the right place.
