Shopping for a swimsuit is distressing enough, fraught with emotional angst. Shopping for bathing suits after a mastectomy, when all women want is to feel normal, is much more difficult. It can seem like one of the most frustrating wardrobe challenges a woman will face after breast cancer surgery.
The key is to find a cut that flatters your new body, comfortably fits a prosthesis and hides surgical and radiation scars, and the good news is that the top mastectomy swimsuit lines check all those boxes.
Amoena bathing suits draw on 40 years of supporting breast cancer survivors worldwide, and their fall bathing suit lineup is proof. Here are some of this season’s most popular Amoena suits:
Amoena’s Fall Lineup
The Amoena Ayon Half Bodice Mastectomy Swimsuit is sure to be one of the fall’s most popular suits, featuring a fashionable geometric print fabric that’s sexy and catches the eye, but with a neckline high enough to cover surgery scars or burns, providing reassurance for your security and comfort.
There are pocketed bra to keep prosthetics firmly in place, comfortable and adjustable elastic straps, and pretty ruching in the front that flatters every figure.
The Amoena Ayon Sarong Suit was inspired by the island of Ayon off the coast of Russia. This sarong suit provides coverage with a short skirt that gathers in the front to flatter the waist. The neckline is of medium height to cover surgical scars, and a flirty slit in the skirt adds playfulness.
The Amoena Ayon Tankini Swim Top is perfectly suited for women with O-shaped bodies who are a little fuller around the middle, or women with narrow shoulders and wider hips. The loose top falls comfortably around the waist and swings with movement. The tankini can be paired with the Amoena Ayon black high waist brief.
One of Amoena’s most popular fall suits is the Cocos One Piece, which is a simple but elegant solid black suit that’s slimming to the eye. It features laser-cut woven detailing under the bustline and a neckline that’s medium in height for just enough coverage. The suit is cut low in the back for just the right amount of sexy, but comes with an additional back strap for more security, if needed.
The Amoena Cocos Mastectomy Swim Top is elegant in solid black with a standout white zipper in the front that makes for easy zipping on and off. This soft, wire-free bikini top is the perfect mix of sporty and sexy. It offers just the right amount of support and features bilateral pockets for breast forms, flattering and feminine ruching in the center front, and lightly padded foam bra cups.
The adjustable straps are wide for greater comfort.
