Well, I caught this topic way too late, but here I am anyway.
I went to Fest in 2011 for the very first time ever (I am 56).
Saw only one woman with a bilateral, like me, and she walked around with a towel draped over herself, like she was trying to be open about it and yet hiding it at the same time.
I didn't find camping to be too much, and they DO have the RV park, but I am the sort who would never have bared my breasts when I had them and am certainly not going to do it now that they are gone and I'm nothing but scars.
I hope you went and enjoyed yourself! We plan on going again this year if we can.
