Melissa Odabash mastectomy range

Melissa Odabash Launches Debut Mastectomy Swimwear Line

TV presenter Jacquie Beltrao fronts the new mastectomy range.

Swimwear designer Melissa Odabash has created a mastectomy range for women who have been affected by breast cancer.

The line, designed in collaboration with cancer charity Future Dreams, is for women who have gone through breast cancer surgery and may be dealing with issues like scarring and sensitive skin. Each of the five styles have been designed with specific features such as sewn-in moulded cups, wide-adjustable straps and high back bands.

Fronting the line is Sky News presenter and former Olympic gymnast Jacquie Beltrao who underwent a mastectomy after discovering a lump on her breast in December 2013.

‘What I love about Melissa’s line is that it’s really comfortable,’ said Jacquie. ‘That’s the first thing you notice when you put it on. And you feel quite secure, everything’s held in place.

‘Every piece was different and I think it will appeal to a lot of women. It doesn’t really matter what your shape is or what your size is, there will be a swimsuit that you will be able to fit into and look good on your holiday in.’

20 per cent of every swimsuit purchased will go to the Future Dreams charity. Watch the video above to go behind the scenes on the shoot.
