We are celebrating here at Clover Lewis Swimwear HQ! Clover’s story of breast cancer survivorship has been mentioned once again in the media.
Woman & Home Magazine have published a full-page interview with Clover Lewis, as one of their inspirational women of the year.
The beautiful thing about Clover’s appearance in Woman & Home magazine is how it also raises hope for possibilities after a breast cancer diagnosis.
"Her story shows that not only is it possible to survive breast cancer and surgery, it is also possible to thrive, to become stronger than ever before, and how to succeed in bringing a dream into reality."
The Woman & Home article is a follow-up on the piece done back in October 2014, coinciding with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Then, Clover shared her early experiences surviving breast cancer, and how she gained her confidence back while helping raise over £600,000 modelling for the charity Breast Cancer Care. She spoke of her overwhelming desire to learn how to scuba dive, which led her to start her recovery project: Clover Lewis Swimwear her post surgery swimwear brand which helps women regain their confidence in the water after breast surgery.
The January 2017 article charts the blossoming of her brand, and includes several heart-warming stories that really do give a great personal insight a woman who wants to help others, like herself.
In one story, Clover speaks about how a woman who just finished her treatment visited her studio to get help selecting her first post-mastectomy swimsuit. Clover shares:
“It was really emotional for both of us seeing her confidence soar again after such a tough time. Meeting her, I realised that people needed this product, and that it could work.”
Clover also shares how stunned she was when she received the Post Surgery Brand of the Year Award at the UK Lingerie Awards for her mastectomy swimwear collection. This news came as a shock as she knew she was up against major brand players Ameona and Debenhams in the shortlist.

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, at 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” after cancer, this 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.
