Not sure where you live but Betty and Belle. Altrncham (Nr Manchester).  Have on line and you can see a great range of swimwear.

 

I'm not too far away so able to make appointment, fitted and tried on etc.  Think my most recent one was £50 ish. 

 

Am 38D and both sides are pocketed with similar to a sports bra set within the swimsuit.  Great fitting and shaping, good support for swimming.  It is a Nicola Jane but i have also had Jamu (bit pricier but gorgeous..)

 

Have a good holiday  Take Care  Butterfly x

Re: Swimwear Stress

I had not thought of that one - great idea and lovely to have some different options. I don't really sunbathe anyway and tend to be a bit of a shade dweller so may look for some dive tops or something that would be comfortable in the water 🙂
I am going to Jamaica... and getting a little more enthusiastic about it now thanks to getting some ideas on here
Thank you x

Re: Swimwear Stress

Thank you for the advice - I got the swim prosthetic from Ameona but was concerned about getting swimwear as it didn't really say anything about support.

I wil gove them a try 🙂

Re: Swimwear Stress

Hi Pippa, i too have a left sided mastectomy, other side is a 40DD. I bought a cossy from Ameona, it was £40, chlorine resistant and supported me really well on both sides. I used an aqua Knitted knocker to fill left side out and they are fab, they dry really quickly too. I would go as far as to say i felt confident in my swimwear and didn't wear the sarong i bought as it was too hot in Tenerife. Hope you find something suitable so you can relax and enjoy your hols 😄xx

Re: Swimwear Stress

Pippa

i am rather smaller than you but the same anxieties are there!!

i remember being given some swimwear brochures after surgery but they were really quite expensive so I chucked them

what I did was to get a lovely bright sports bra ( which often have pockets) from TKMax and also cordinating bottoms ( or Lycra shorts) I then wear a Lycra t shirt on top ( which caters for all sorts of horrors!

its probably not what you want but it's a thought

please don't let it spoil your excitement

where are you off to?

Swimwear Stress

This may seem like a really unimportant thing but.... I am hoping someone can help.

 

I am about to go on holiday and am desperately looking for suitable swimwear. I had a left-side mastectomy and have been using a prosthetic quite comfortably for a while now. I have purchased a "swim-boob" ready for the trip but when I look at Mastectomy swimwear it only mentions built in pouched for prosthetics but nothing about support for the remaining breast.

 

I am rather well endowed and am concerned that I will end up with my prosthetic sitting in teh correct location whilst my remaining real breast is hanging out somewhere around my waist!

 

If anyone has any advice on places that sell some kind of swimwear with built in bra's (for larger ladies: E-Cup) and preferable high neck lines then I would really appreciate it.

 

I want so much to be looking forward to this holiday but I am getting more and more anxious about it every day.
