Diving Deep: My Motivation for Making Mastectomy Swimwear

Diving Deep: My Motivation for Making Mastectomy Swimwear

"Throughout my treatment for breast cancer, I dreamt of being by the sea… 
I began looking for swimwear after my mastectomy but struggled to find anything that supported me to feel truly feminine again. My choices were dull and undesirable-not what I wanted for my first holiday after treatment. 
These feelings were the reason why I decided to make my first pocketed bikini. It was stylish, held my breast form in place, and enabled me to swim without wardrobe malfunctions!
Clover Lewis Swimwear was born!" - Clover Lewis

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 press 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.
