Specific Solutions for Breast Cancer Survivors
Shopping for a bathing suit is a grueling process even in the best of circumstances. Standard bathing suits do not address the additional problems that are common among breast cancer survivors. At Pink Beach we know about and understand all of these problems. We have lots of solutions. We are determined to move bathing suit shopping for the breast cancer survivor out of the medical supply store and into a high fashion online boutique where we combine innovative solutions with high fashion answers. Below is a list of issues that are common among survivors and the solutions that we have developed. Read it carefully to see what solutions work for you and then go to shop to order the suit that is perfect for you.
All of our suits have high necklines, high armholes and wide straps to conceal scars from breast surgery, portacath placement and reconstructive surgery.
All of our suits have super strong tummy control to help with abdominal wall weakness from TRAM flap reconstruction. The super strong tummy control also helps conceal that extra weight that you might have gained with chemotherapy.
