Most people know that Lands’ End has tons of swimsuit options that cater to your body type, but did you know that they have a special Mastectomy Collection for breast cancer survivors? Lands’ End has over fifty swimsuit styles that meet the needs of breast cancer survivors which can be broken down into three categories: suits with prosthesis pocket, suits without prosthesis pockets, and comfortable swimsuit bottoms.
- Prosthesis Pocket Swimsuits - All suits have been created with a soft-cup bra constructed for additional support, while the bra and liner hold the prosthesis in place with durable elastic. This design allows a full range of motion, maximum comfort, and ultimate confidence. Each mastectomy swimsuit can hold one or two breast prostheses.
- Non-Prosthesis Pocket Swimsuits – Genae Girard, author and breast cancer survivor, assisted Lands’ End with creating designs that cater to each woman. She took many breast cancer and post-reconstruction experiences into consideration when selecting swimwear appropriate for this category. While women that are post-reconstruction may not warrant a traditional mastectomy swimsuit outfitted for prosthetics, breast cancer treatment and scar sensitivity and visibility are important factors.
- Comfortable Swimsuit Bottoms – These are helpful for women that have had surgical procedures and need more supportive and comfortable bottoms that smooth the stomach. Lands’ End offers swimwear suitable for breast cancer survivors that simply provides coverage and comfort.
