Swimming is one of the most beneficial exercises anyone can do. It is aerobic but low impact so even people who have health conditions, weak knees, bad joints, too much weight or heart disease can enjoy getting into shape by swimming in a pool. Many people also enjoy just splashing around and cooling off in a relaxing and refreshing pool during a hot summers day or taking a trip to the beach and splashing in the waves with family and friends. But unfortunately even though swimming is so beneficial and fun, many women who have undergone breast cancer surgery are too uncomfortable to enjoy being in a swimsuit. They may feel self-conscious or worry that everyone will stare at them. Thankfully mastectomy swimwear makes it easy for any women who has undergone breast removal to enjoy time in a pool again.
Enjoy Swimming Again With the Right Bathing Suit
If you have undergone breast surgery as a result of cancer and chemotherapy treatments then one thing that you will want to keep in mind is that every women feels uncomfortable and self-conscious in a bathing suit, even women who have never had surgery, have both of their breasts and are at a healthy weight. Women also tend to be too critical of themselves no matter what condition their body is in. So there is no reason to feel worried about putting on a bathing suit after you have had breast surgery. Especially if you have specially made mastectomy swimwear. These exceptional suits have pockets located inside the top that allows women to insert a silicone breast. These suits also have a higher neckline so you won’t have to worry about low cut plunging bathing suit tops and higher armholes to help you cover up any scars. That makes them perfect for women who have not had reconstruction as well as those who have.
Using Forms Inside a Bathing Suit
If you are going to be doing a lot of swimming you may want to look into getting a special swim form to insert in your suit. These forms are lighter than traditional forms and float better making it easier to swim. Swim forms are also able to hold up well in chlorine water, salt water, intense heat and direct sunlight. Just wash them off carefully once you are done and allow them to dry completely before putting them away.
