In the past almost 3 years I’ve seen my wife go through a lot of ups and downs. She has faced many adversities that’s gotten the best of her. I want to take the time to extremely thank Amoena from the bottom of my heart for the gift of happiness you have given her.
I have never seen her try something on that immediately brought so much joy to her. The look on her face from putting on a bathing suite Amoena provided her brought tears of joy to me and her she looked like a kid in the candy store, with smiles from ear to ear.
I want to thank you so much for giving her the confidence to feel amazing. Amoena you are doing fabulous things for our community.
Mastectomy bathing suits and bikinis are swimwear which has been specially designed for women who have undergone breast surgeries. Some women may have had lumpectomy, or complete single or double mastectomies. Some women choose to have one of the different types of breast reconstruction.
After breast surgery, some women recreate a breast shape to conceal the breast tissue using a breast form (also known as a breast prosthesis). Made of silicone, breast forms mimic the shape of a breast.
Women can use their breast forms to customize their swimwear to suit their own shape. How is this done? By placing their breast form (or in the case of double mastectomy breast forms) into the specially designed pockets of the mastectomy swimsuit.
Some women wearing prosthesis feel more confident in their mastectomy swimsuit or bikini knowing the post-surgical chest that symmetrical. Other women choose not to wear breast forms, preferring the freedom of ‘going flat and fabulous’ in their swimwear! Ultimately, this a matter of personal choice.
