We just wrapped up Memorial Day weekend which means the time for beach trips and weekends spent at the pool has begun. But for women living with an ostomy, finding something you are comfortable in wearing at the pool can seem like a really hard task. In this video, I go through the options I have found for ostomates and share some of my experiences with each one. And below the video, you can see some pictures of the ostomy swimwear for women options I have found!
Here are pictures of each look, plus another one that I found since I uploaded this video!
Links for swim suits:
Black/white one-piece: The exact swimsuit I got from Anthropologie is no longer available, but they have tons of beautiful one-pieces that are really well made. Mine has the boyleg bottom which I think gives it a fun, retro feel.
Patterned one-piece: This swimsuit is by Spanx as a part of their Assets line, but it appears they no longer making swimsuits. That really upsets me because I love the 2 one-pieces that I have by them, however, you can still find some out there by searching Google for “Spanx swimwear” or “Assets swimwear.”
Two-piece bikini: Both pieces are from Victoria’s Secret “bikini mixer” collection.
High-waisted two-piece: I found this suit on Amazon and they have a number of different styles, however, you can find this exact swimsuit at a number of places online. Searching for “high-waisted swim suit” brings up a bunch of options.
High-waisted polka dots: I actually just found this one recently at Zappos! It’s a really good quality and has ruching in the front to help cover everything up. It’s just the bottom sold there. The top is the same as the two-piece bikini top from VS.
