Low Cost Mastectomy Swim Wear

swimsuitone2Lands’ End. Many of their mastectomy suits are modified versions of their non-mastectomy suits. Their prices are moderate and if you watch for sales, you can buy suits at an even lower cost. Lands’ End tankinis are particularly comfortable and flattering. There are usually one or more tankinis shown with print tops, which some women prefer as a way to make their bustlines less of a focal point.

    I have had both breast removed. Since the left side was radiated it appears bigger than the right. Are there any bathing sutes that can help with this probel.? Please I an so young and have not worn a bathing suite since 2004.

    You might not have noticed but before you had your mastectomies, your breasts were not equal in size. Find a swim suit you like and just wear it. You are young, strong and a survivor. Don’t let a swim suit take away from that. Celebrate being alive and live life to the fullest.

    I lilke the swim suit that is shown above–tankini-top has letters on it. What brand is it and where do I find it?

  4. Mary Pat June 16, 2011 at 7:30 pm #

    Jan – I think the comment you made to Karen was very condescending and a little bit unkind. Helping her solve the problem she has would have been more tasteful. Here is my opinion – I had this problem myself – get one of the cute swimming suits that have a pocket for a prosthesis. Check with your insurance company as they may be able to help you pay for this or you can buy them yourself online or at a Women’s Center. Purchase a prosthesis that is the same size as your other breast and tuck it into the pocket. Your local hospital or Women’s Health Center may have someone who can fit you if you need assistance. Take a look at the suits – they are cute. If you get the right fit on the swimsuit top no one will ever know and you will have the confidence to go in the water again. Have fun, you deserve it.

    I found both Jan and Mary Pat’s comments having a positive outlook for Karen Merriam’s question re-swimwear. I have had a bi-lateral masectomy myself and am looking for a swim suit. I opted for no prosthesis but am not against it for those who feel better for it.
    Cancer is not about being ” quote, tasteful, unquote ” it’s about surviving and living life as fully as one can. So advice on self confidence and not vanity, no matter how old, is the best positive help that can be given for those of us in need.

    I am so frustrated. My chest wall was totally screwed up on the right hand side with my mastectomy. All the suits and tank tops are too low cut and show distortion and scars. Is there someone who makes tankini tops or camisoles that are high cut and attractive?

  7. Mo August 28, 2013 at 1:51 am #

    Hanes Your Way has a few different mastectomy swimsuits. I purchased two of them and they are very attractive. I am very self conscious about my mastectomy but I feel good in them. I also have a problem about the prices of mastectomy swimsuits. They are expensive.

    If I an aee even a hint of cleavage in the photos it will not work for me. Many of us have been really scarred up. or even have an indentationat the center side of our cleavage. Please make then higher.

    These swim suits are reveling ny nun lost both her breats and has scars these swim suits would not cover that and these women have there breast out thats a bit wrong concidering thos is a site for women who have had mastectomy and some people can not afford to have plactic surgery done

  10. Susan January 22, 2014 at 12:11 pm #

    You do not understand. The Landsend swimsuits are too low cut for those of us with big scars and absolutely no cleavage any more. Let us have high cuts in the front. No one wants to see huge ropey mastectomy scars,and we don’t want to show them.

  11. Billie February 20, 2014 at 6:17 pm #

    Susan,
    You said it!!!

  12. Wendy April 15, 2014 at 3:20 pm #

    I want the sexy look of a two-piece without the scars showing. Why is it so difficult to find a suit that isn’t too low? What do these designers NOT

  13. Wendy April 15, 2014 at 3:21 pm #

    What do these designers NOT understand? Has anyone found any nice suits that aren’t low cut?

    I found a few bathing suits at Bealls.com. They fit nicely. Also hanesyourway.com has a few that I bought.

    I had a modified radical mastectomy when I was 31 years old. I am now 55. Since then, I have only found 2 Bathing suits to meet my needs. One was a high neck Janzen -all black with white flowers on the top half. It has a hook at the neck and really holds securely. The other is similar in style that I bought at Steinmart last year. I wish I could design my own suit. I would know exactly how to make it. It would be black all over with a brightly colored top half , with rusching in the middle with a hook at the neck. Perfecto!

    T.H.E. makes some high cut swim tops with thick straps(tank style) and prosthetic pockets, that do not reveal my chest wall, even when bending over. Having a two piece “Tankini” suit also allows me to use the restroom without frightening small children who might look through the cracks in the bathroom stall!

    Hi,
    Right now cancer awareness month is going on and Newport Center Orthopaedic brings special 20% off sale on all Mastectomy & Lymphedema bra and products. This sale is on throughout the October month because of cancer awareness month and can get this product on 20 % off in our store only. Check the map for our store location: https://goo.gl/maps/78W05

  19. Sue October 22, 2015 at 6:56 pm #

    Does the Newport Center Orthopaedic sell online? What brands do they sell?

    Landsend is worthless for women with a lot of scaring. They are cut way too low.
    They have higher cut suits but don’t choose to make those in the mastectomy type.
    I have tried to talk to them several times about it. They might be fine for women
    with lumpectomy’s, but anyone with a radical mastectomy, unless their chest is
    beautiful needs to find places that make real mastectomy swimsuits.

    I tried to do the replacement unfortunately that failed and I have elected to live without breast. It was a long hard road to get to the happy place with me. So your words of encouragement for all are awesome. That being said where have you found a suit that doesn’t have breast bumps as you know it’s had to prevent gaping

    These models do not portray a post mastectomy look. I’m looking for a high top swim suits

  23. Cynthia June 4, 2017 at 10:04 pm #

    I purchased a “normal” 1-piece swimsuit that I liked due to the high cost of prosthetic pocket swmsuits and sewed a pocket for my prosthetic. This works good for me. And I like and need a high top for coverage as well.
