Choosing Post-Mastectomy Swimwear: A Recommendation

We were keen to share this review from one of our customers who has recently been through a mastectomy and breast reconstruction. We hope that it brings inspiration to all women who have gone through the trauma and frightening times of breast cancer and surgery.  Bikini shopping is daunting at the best of times, but planning your holiday beachwear after breast surgery is even more daunting as where do you start?  Our customer was not ready to accept that her bikini days were over, so we sent her a selection of different styles to try and hope that her feedback will be helpful to ladies in a similar position.

Seafolly Vintage Wildflower

Vintage Wildflower Swimwear collection by Seafolly

We love the arrival of a new swimwear collection, especially when it’s as good as this one. The Vintage Wildflower collection by Seafolly is a classic floral print in a range of mix and max swimwear styles. Seafolly have called the print a ‘reimagined vintage floral’ and describe it as ‘bringing balmy nights and lazy days to life’. The design is so fun and feminine with it’s pretty aqua blue background and splashes of bright coral and pink, we know this will be the stand out choice for swimwear this summer.
