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.
