Lands' End offers mastectomy swimsuits for breast cancer survivors



landsend-tankini-top.jpgEvery summer, we gripe about the proliferation of tiny triangle bikinis that offer no chest support whatsoever. But we don't often think about the people with more complicated concerns in that area.

What if you're dealing with breast cancer?

A handful of companies specialize in suits for women who've undergone mastectomies or reconstruction. Lands' End has joined the pack this season, introducing its 2012 Mastectomy Swimwear Collection.

The tops come with or without prosthesis pockets, and the bottoms are supportive and smoothing for women who've had surgical procedures. Genae Girard, breast cancer survivor, author and founder of, partnered with Lands' End to review hundreds of mastectomy swimsuits before settling on the 50 best.

Check out the options here. There are a ton of cute suits ranging from bikinis to shorts and tanks. Prices are $50 to $145, which we all learn is pretty reasonable once you start hanging out in the swimsuit racks.

While you're browsing online, check out the sale going on right now at Lands' End -- 20 percent off clearance and sale merch, plus free shipping on orders of $50 or more. Don't mind if we do.
