I am looking for a swimsuit top for flat chest. I do not want one for prosthesis. They are uncomfortable. I have no problem looking flat and most people don't even notice. I would prefer a bandeau type. Does anyone know a place to buy something like this

Speaking of Land's End, they make a tank specifically for those with mastectomies who go flat. It is entirely smooth on the inside.

It took me a couple of years to find a bathing suit that was not scratchy on my scars and when I found one, I bought two. Have been swimming again now for 3 years.

A bandeau is an interesting idea. I know some people wear swim shirts. I just wear a regular one piece, looser than a tank, that has space for breasts but is otherwise comfy. I don't wear any prostheses.

I just ordered a Land's End Tugless tank that is "lined" and apparently without any cups or underwires or pockets for prosthetics. I'll let you know how it turns out. I searched the Speedo site, and the racing tanks are also without bras, but it seems that I'm too big for them. Any other ideas are most welcome.

Has anyone found a tank top similar to these. Often wishing the ones I have just a little thicker or a top good for getting wet without cups. I will check out the Lands End Tugless Tank mentioned. Even though flat, wanting a bra like to wear under thin shirts. Ordered some big girl training that I hope work.
