Shopping for a swimsuit presents a challenge for even the most confident woman. It becomes more difficult for those that have undergone a mastectomy.

Becky’s Wigs and Mastectomy Shop in League City caters to a niche of women battling breast cancer with a designer line of swimsuits.

A spacious, secluded dressing room designated for mastectomy clients occupies half of the shop.

Pinion isn’t just peddling wares, compassion is the backbone of her business. A breast cancer survivor herself, she understands her clients’ concerns and has created a culture of discretion and personal attention in the shop.

A certified prosthesis fitter with 40 years of professional training and experience, Pinion works closely with local physicians to assist and support clients through the difficult transition period and ensure a proper fit.

“I don’t do anything small,” Pinion said. “Breast cancer patients and survivors from all over the world request our services and merchandise. I can supply that need.”

But, it doesn’t stop at swimwear and bras.

In the other half of the store, there’s a stunning selection of hats, turbans, hairpieces and accessories, not to mention the wig selection, which includes more than 1,000 contemporary pieces from the best names in the business.

On site coif counselors can help women, men or children select a style that suits them. After it’s chosen, each wig is trimmed and shaped to suit the individual.

“The industry has changed so much in the last few years with beautiful fibers and up-to-date styles. The new fibers used to make the wigs are just wonderful and very light,” Pinion said.  

Hat Trick

Becky’s has a fabulous line of dashing red hats from the Red Hat Society, an exclusive club for ladies over 50.  

The club is outrageously entertaining. Members go to dinners and social events where they can have a blast with an agenda intended for full-blown fun. The Red Hat Society line is currently available at Becky’s Wigs and Mastectomy Shop and includes hats and jewelry, with new items arriving regularly.

Becky’s Wigs and Mastectomy Shop is located at 125 East Galveston St. in League City, a half block off the intersection of FM 518 and state Highway 3, behind the new McDonald’s. Pinion gladly receives customers Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call her at 281-332-6407 or 281-554-7559.
