I’m Swimming With or Without Boobs: Post-Mastectomy Swimwear

We can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are to be able to present this to you all. It’s about time the world saw some swimsuits designed with breast cancer patients in mind, that are actually cute and work for a range of different ages, not just your granny’s. You already know that some of the ones out there right now are kinda meh. And we just couldn’t leave it like that anymore! We’re not going to settle with our bras, we’re not going to settle with our swimsuits, we’re not going to settle. Period. That’s it.

We know a lot of you guys have been waiting on a swim launch from us, (some might have even heard us dropping hints about it) but trust us, we’ve been busy behind the scenes making sure these pieces were perfect. And now that these girls are all gussied up and ready to hit the beach, we get to show them off!

After your breast procedures, you know you deserve to go out, have fun and live your life LOUD. And there should be nothing stopping you from doing just that, least of all finding the right swimsuit. That’s why we made our swimsuits to work for any type of breasts (or none at all). You can find a super-cute swimsuit (with built-in UVA and UVB protection btw) that will keep your boobs, foobs and noobs looking good while you’re relaxing poolside or kicking up sand. Whatever your style, we wanted you to have options when you pull together your ‘Gram-worthy swim looks this summer.

Cortez Keyhole Swimsuit

Pocketed

Works for: single or double mastectomy, lumpectomy, reconstruction

This super sexy one-piece is certainly a way to grab eyes poolside or by the beach. If you like to throw in swim forms or use what's already there, this swimsuit shows off all the best parts.

 

Cassis Ruffle Swimsuit

Unpocketed

Works for: single or double mastectomy, lumpectomy, reconstruction

While this suit works for your body after any breast procedure, it was made with special consideration to our Flatties and Unies out there. The placement of the ruffles adds volume to the chest to give the appearance of symmetry and fullness.

 

Cassis Wrap Swim Top

Unpocketed

Works for: lumpectomy, reconstruction, single mastectomy 

Another versatile suit, this wrap style top was designed for anyone, but with our single-breasted ladies in mind. The wrap detail holds its place over just one breast. Don't even worry about which side either because it works both ways! 

 

Cortez Halter Swim Top

Unpocketed

Works for: single or double mastectomy, lumpectomy

This sporty little top will be your best friend if you have a small bust or nothing at all. It fits smoothly without any extra fabric hanging around and the elastic bands let the world know what team you're on.

 

Cassis Wrap Swim Bottom & Cassis High Tie Swim Bottom

Unpocketed ‘cause they’re bottoms

Works for: either of our swim tops or any matching top you might have

You may not be able to hold your boob/foobs in them (unless you get pretty creative), but these two deserved a shoutout nonetheless. Designed to mix and match with either of our tops, these swim bottoms give you the option of a classic bikini cut or a high waist (great for forgetting about any tummy scars). Paired with your favorite top, it's the perfect set!

I cant thank you enough for making these already beautiful women feel better about themselves. My daughter Bianca is feeling so much better about herself because of you, and all the wonderful things you do! Your bathing suit line is so beautiful, you’re an amazing designer, but most especially a wonderful person with an incredible heart…. thank you 💞💕🙏🏼

We really mean it when we say that you ladies inspire us every single day. When you tell us about designs you'd like or share pieces of your stories with us, we listen. It’s because of you telling us about your issues with finding ideal underwear, swimwear, whatever it is, that we came to create so many of our designs. So whenever we get the chance, we love to shine a spotlight on some people in the AO Community who inspire us. We'd now like to make an introduction.
