Lumpectomy 2008 and another one (but this dr called it partial mastectomy) on same side 4 wks ago. I am very small chested-I am going on a cruise in May-I want to try on bathing suit prior to see if you can notice. With ever day clothes and bra I DO NOT think it's noticable.

I would assume any suit with cup or padding would surfice. I am 53 so Just basic one peice suit..any thoughts?

with just first lumpectomy I never even thought about it. I thought I would have LOST much more last month, so I am happy with results. HAPPIER that NO cancer of course. (JUST scar tissue from frist time)

The person who fit my prosthesis carries swimwear in her shop.  If you google 'mastectomy bras' with the name of your area you might find some people to call and ask if they have swimwear.  You can also see if your cancer center can recommend someone.  If you live near a Nordstrom, call and ask for an appointment with their bra fitter.  She should be able to help too.Enjoy that cruise!

IT may not even be noticable with the suit i have...but two chunks (per say) removed in same area. I should just get my suit out and try. I was just wondering if anything for LUMPECTOMY >>>>vs Mastactomy.
