Mastectomy Bras, tops and prostheses for all Breast Surgeries and Reconstruction
A swim prosthesis is specially designed for swimming in the sea or pool. These specialist prostheses are chlorine resistant and suitable for regular pool swimming.
Clients often ask if ordinary prostheses are suitable for swimming? To an extent, yes, a regular prosthesis will survive the occasional dip. However, if you enjoy regular swimming, saunas or jacuzzis, we strongly recommend using a swim prosthesis.
Benefits of Swim Prostheses:
After having nodes removed you may be prone to lymphedema. Swimming movements are preventative and therefore recommended. Once you get it, it is a difficult thing to manage, so prevention is the best option.
So, investing in a swim prosthesis and mastectomy swimsuit could be vital for your health. Luckily, we stock some fabulous swimwear.
Also, if you have hair loss due to cancer or alopecia, check out our swim caps. Unlike regular swimming caps, they are designed to give the illusion of a full head of hair beneath.
