Feeling all sorts of happy and pride as we look back to the anniversary of Clover Lewis Swimwear in Vogue!
Clover's mastectomy swimwear designs for women affected by breast cancer surgeries made fashion history. Featured in the Making Waves section, her glamorous High Neck Dive Bikini was the first mastectomy bikini, to feature in the Fashion Bible, Vogue magazine. To put this event into context, that's the first time mastectomy swimwear fashion appeared in the iconic magazine-in 100 years of publication.
About Clover, Creator of Clover Lewis Swimwear
Clover started designing mastectomy swimsuits and bikinis after struggling to find a stylish, beautiful post surgery bikini to wear on her first holiday after a breast cancer diagnosis. The holiday? A trip to Bali to overcome her fears by learning how to scuba-dive.
She made her first mastectomy bikini, got her PADI diving certificate wearing it, in that moment personally realised the connections between body image, clothing confidence for women with breast cancer
So despite the expectation to carry on with “life as normal” her experience had a profound effect on Clover. It became the fuel for her mission creating beautiful swimwear for women to feel good about their bodies so they can swim again.
Through Clover Lewis Swimwear, Clover helps women feel body confident… and feel like they belong on a beach.
