With the summer months quickly approaching, this is the perfect time to purchase your mastectomy swimsuits and cover-ups. So many women after a mastectomy can feel self-conscious and less feminine. Choosing to have a mastectomy is a courageous decision, and you should never feel like you aren’t still sexy and able to flaunt your bare skin in a swimsuit.
Finding the perfect swimsuit is difficult enough, but after a mastectomy, it can be even more challenging to find the right fit, comfort, and style. It is so important, though, to start the healing process both physically and emotionally, and swimming is one of the best and healthiest ways for post-mastectomy women to get their lives back to normal. That’s why finding the perfect mastectomy swimwear that can boost your morale and allow you to carry on with your exercise or recreation program is so crucial.
With Penbrooke’s 2019 mastectomy swimsuit and cover-up collection, you can shed the winter layers and feel beautiful in a specially designed post-mastectomy swimsuit that is fitted with pockets for your breast forms, while still looking natural and fashionable.

What to Look for in a Post-Mastectomy Swimsuit
Before going shopping for your post-mastectomy swimsuit, make sure you have the proper breast forms for swimming. Water-compatible breast forms or swim forms are a must for when you want to go in the water this summer because they are engineered specifically for swimming. Whether you prefer silicone swim forms or fabric microbead breast forms, finding the perfect breast form fit is your first step.
When you are starting your bathing suit shopping, finding a bathing suit with prostheses pockets is an excellent way to narrow down your search. The bilateral pockets hold the breast forms in place and make sure they stay snuggly against your chest and do not hang loosely in your top.
Having adjustable straps, when concerned with the symmetry of your body, can also play a factor in choosing your post-mastectomy swimsuit. The shoulder straps hold your breast forms in line and help you control the amount of support.
Just like shopping for a regular swimsuit, make sure you love it. Don’t settle for a swimsuit you only sort of like, because finding a suit you enjoy wearing can help you to feel your most confident.
