Mastectomy Swimwear Facts
There are fashionable mastectomy swim suits designed to hold a prosthesis. They come in a variety of styles for women of all ages.

There are many different swim prostheses to choose from but I have my favorites. Check out this video tip of how to alter your existing bathing suit wardrobe.
Insurance does not cover swimsuits.
Breast Care Specialists should encourage patients to seek out swimwear, exercise bras and the special breast prosthesis that is designed for an active lifestyle.
