I need to thank the amazing Lisa from @aboutthegirluk for this stunning @seafolly_bikinis bikini. As most of you know I don’t have my left breast and don’t bother with a prosthesis. Although I don’t mind when fully clothed, trying to find a bikini as been a bloody nightmare. Then the lovely Lynne of @stylingmatters introduced me to Lisa. She’s had a mastectomy herself so ‘gets’ it. She’s also the only person in the UK licensed to add pockets to SeaFolly bikinis. Lisa is a genius. She tried this on at home for me to see how it would look without her own prosthesis. It’s padded. Moulded. Soft boning that even I could tolerate with my chest wall neuropathy. And it’s sexy. She is a genius!!! Whether you’ve had breast cancer or not, this is the only place you need to go to but swimwear in the future #bikini #swimsuit #breastcancer #mastectomy #prosthesis #sexy #padded #genius

What a brilliant idea you have come up with!.

Hi there, just to say a big thank you for such a super swimsuit. I was at The Wealden Fair on Friday and saw it but was unsure of buying without trying but followed the ladies advice and I am so glad I did. It looks fabulous and fits beautifully, also giving me a cleavage which I haven’t had for years ! I am nearly 60 and will come and see you again when I need another one. Once again thank you.

Amazing, thank you so much for this - will have a look and let you know. Really appreciate the time and trouble you have taken over this!

You make holidays easier and more fun!

Just wanted to say thank you. I'm absolutely thrilled with my swimwear having thought I'd never be able to find anything that made me feel confident and feminine. I'm 42 and had resigned myself to swimwear designed for someone twice my age, you really have no ide what a difference finding your website has made :)

Firstly, can I thank you for the fabulous swimwear that I purchased from you , last year, it's  great. 
I will be making another purchase of beanies from you imminently. I used the beanie permanently with a soft elastic bra as it was far more comfortable that the prosthetic ones issued by the hospital

"You made my holiday...Thank you"


I just wanted to say thanks for the beanies you make.  Since my mastectomy I could not have managed without them.  I have used them everyday and they have got me through a very difficult time.  I haven't even tried them for swimming yet!  I have a prosthesis now but have carried on wearing the beanie for running.  Thanks so much.



This is my third swimsuit from you and I LOVE them all. I never thought I could go to a beach again. Thank you

Just to say how delighted I am with my purchase and only wish you had a size 14 in the matching Cyell bikini!  I was very impressed how perfectly the item was packaged and the speed of the delivery.  Thank you so much and best wishes,  Helen



My 2 bikinis I bought off you in February were very much admired by a number of people. They couldn't believe they had pockets sewn in for my "boobies"! The bikini tops look like just any other bikini top!

Superb service! Ordered Friday received Saturday a.m.

Ordered the Coastline maillot with boyleg (which I was a bit doubtful about) but after speaking over the phone went ahead and ordered it. Love,love,love it!

Second swimwear item I've bought from this great site and will return for more. Can't recommend highly enough!!

Gill 24/03/14


I just wanted to say how delighted I am with the two goddess bikini tops I  

ordered. After 10 years of having to wear mastectomy wear, these are far and  

away the best post surgery bikini tops I have come across. The sort of thing  

I would have worn before my surgery. Fantastic - thank you!

I just wanted to say a hugh THANK YOU!!!
I am so impressed with About the Girl! I placed my order on Monday night and I can't believe it arrived today!
And I am chuffed to bits with my order - the Camelia bra & nix & seafolly swimming costume. They are all a great fit and look georgeous. And the beanie - what a fab idea!
For the first time since my mastectomy last November I have realised that I CAN still look good, and that's even with the baldy chemo head!
I had started to think that all mastectomy wear was designed for old ladies, and despaired of ever having nice underwear ever again - now, thanks to About the Girl, I know otherwise!
 Thanks again Amy - my confidence has received a massive boost today, and you won't need me to tell you what an achievement that is when your in the cchemo doldrums!!!
Keep on bringing the light into peoples tunnels xxx

Received my bikini today thank you so much i actually feel as if I am wearing  

something for me instead of my grandma. I will definitely use you again and  

recommend you to others.


Lynne 10 Oct 2012



Thank you. What fab service! The prettiest  

bra I have ever had. Sally 15 Aug 2012



I got my sports bra and tankini today and just want to say a 'huge' thank you.  You have made my day - I never thought I would be able to wear a strapless anything after my surgery and I feel like a new woman again!  I can't wait to try it out on the beach and I will be using the sports bra shortly.

Emma 25/11/11



thank you for the only pretty mastectomy bras  

ive seen,  at thirty eight, i was not prepared for double wide strapped white  

grandmotherly lingerie....jenne...18.10.10





thanks amy for your advice loved the black goddess bikini ,at last I can feel  

sexy again






So many people will be saved  a lot of upset after surgery when they discover how gorgeous your 

swimwear and underwear is and how natural looking too.  It goes right to the 

heart of restoring confidence and feelings of feminity when we think it's 

all gone forever.

“What smashing stuff on your website, I especially like Rose and Lucy!! Really pretty and feminine."

"Just received my 2 sets of lingerie (Rose and Lucy). I am so pleased with

them.  Even the packaging made me smile! Having undergone a mastectomy 4

weeks ago, I too have been looking for pretty lingerie but not been very impressed."

"Hi I have just opened my parcel and thought Id let you know how pleased I am with the undies

and the packaging - it was really special to have a ribboned box!!"

"Dear About the Girl,

Thank you for the great customer service provided when I placed my order with you, speedy delivery and choice of beanie. It can be quite distressing trying to find that right bra, let alone a bikini appropriate for my age (38). I love both bikinis especially the goddess and they have given me some confidence back to be able to be happy on the beach with my family (husband and two girls aged 6 and 2).

We are heading off to Tenerife in February for a much deserved family holiday and quality time together after my diagnosis and treatment last year which only ended in January. Thanks again."
