Mastectomy Plus size
This bathing suit was well fashioned for someone using prostheses after a mastectomy or lumpectomy, especially the clasp at the top in the back, which would also give support for women with a full bust. My only problem with it was that I am very short and it was cut too long for me -- there was a whole bunch of extra material in the middle. If you're normal size (not 5" like me), this would be a great suit.
Fit: Feels too big

Loved this suit.
The quality of the suit was outstanding. However, after one wearing the plastic tab broke. I can not believe that such an expensive suit had a plastic closure and not metal. That was very disappointing and I am having it fixed for $25 by a seamstress with a metal closure.
Fit: Feels true to size
Where do they think women's breasts are?
I bought three suits from this outlet for a trip to the ocean. I had a bilateral mastectomy but have swim breast forms. Unfortunately, the pockets for prosthetics on these suits are SO BIG and SO DEEP that my breast forms, which are not small, sink like rocks, leaving me looking like I have boobs on my ribcage. Where do they think women's breasts are? This was true for this suit and the two others that I purchased. I regret buying any of them, but now I can't do anything about it because I leave for my trip in two days. Now I can swim with a swimjacket over the suit so that I can wear a bra with my prosthetics. Not the swim experience I was hoping for.
I tried it on just as soon as I received it. It fit perfectly. I have been too busy to get into the pool but cannot wait.
After an exhausting internet search, I found this swimsuit...the only one with a high enough neckline to cover all my scars, and the caved in chest area resulting from my mastectomy. In the past I had a problem with the prosthetic being too large for the pocket, and sticking out the top of my previous swimsuit. Very embarrassing!!! This suit has large enough pockets for my size 17 prosthetic, and there is no chance of it poking out of the top or the side. The suit is flattering with the fabric texture and the tummy control, it is also easy for me to put on and take off, even with my limited mobility in my left arm. The torso is long, which is perfect for my 5'8" frame. Thank you for making this suit!! I will certainly be able to enjoy my summer now!!
Good high-neck modest suit
I haven't had a masectomy but always look for high necks in front, since I have had three heart surgeries, and am embarassed about my zipper scars. The back is good both for swimming and also using for my "Aqua Zumba" class in the pool. I am not sure how it will hold up over time, so only gave it four stars, but the fit is very stretchy and comfy and I like the modesty of this suit. Being a Plus size, it is so hard to find suits which fit and look good, too!
good mastectomy suit
Overall, this is a good suit. The material is thicker than usual. My only problem is that it is big in the breast area.
I really like the fit of this suit. I wanted a high neck suit but wish it were about 1/2 inch lower because it rubs a little. Otherwise it is just what I wanted and it's a great color. I wear it for water aerobics 3 times a week.
Will not buy again
I would not recommend or purchase this suit again. The reason for this is due to the neck closure system. You have to guide a piece of plastic through a flimsy tiny hole while both of your hands are directly behind your head. I have found this to be a difficult task even when not wearing the suit. I have worn this suit 3 times and will be purchasing a new suit from LL Bean.
The suit fit nicely until I put my prosthesis in the pockets. The pockets were so large they made the prosthesis hang almost to my waist. Not acceptable.
