Women who were active before a mastectomy or want to do water exercise after breast surgery will find the mastectomy swimsuits from Lands End to be comfortable. Designed to accommodate one or two breast prostheses and fit snugly, these are also modestly designed to flatter your figure.

In addition, the fabric provides UPF 50 sun protection, to help prevent sunburn. High armholes hide scars from lymph node removal and the high neck conceals scars, cleavage or the lack of cleavage.

Durable and well-designed, this suit will last for several seasons and remain in good shape.

The Review of Lands End Women's Mastectomy Swimsuit

Lands End offers a variety of mastectomy swimsuits. This review checks out a one-piece, high-necked Lands End suit that delivered on what you usually want in a swimsuit, with a bonus of pockets for breast prosthesis.

Find Security in this Swimsuit

Within the lining and behind the soft bra cups, you can slip your swimming prosthesis into the liner from the outside edge (as you would for a bra). It will be held securely in place with extra elastic. Snug-fitting shoulder straps ensure that the bra will move naturally with you.

Women with implants - as well as those using a breast prosthesis - will appreciate how well the high armholes hide lymph node surgical scars.

The high neck of this suit camouflages your breast curves – are they real or are they replacements?

Nobody needs to know your business while you're wearing a swimsuit that is this well-designed.

A Figure-Flattering Design

  • Along the side seams, the fabric on the front panel is shirred to fit and flatter any figure snugly.
  • Around the back, there is a good amount of fabric for your bottom. 
  • The leg holes are not too high but are cut at a modest 2-inch leg height to make your legs appear longer. 

    The Fabric

    The swimsuit fabric is very durable and soft (made of 69% nylon and 31% Lycra spandex, with a tricot overlay) and provides UPF 50 sun protection for your skin.

    I wish that these suits were machine-washable but must admit that my first Lands End mastectomy swimsuit (6 years old) has been hand-washed, and it still looks and feels good.

    Even at the price of $82.50 for a regular torso or $92.50 for a plus size, these suits are a good value and will give several years of enjoyment and comfort.
