Finnish Designers Create Swimsuits For Breast Cancer Survivors

Many women simply want to feel normal again after battling breast cancer. They have fought hard to stay alive and just want to enjoy their bodies while not being ashamed of it. Elina Halttunen who is a breast cancer survivor herself decided to design a bikini that fit her perfectly even after she had a mastectomy. So, along with 2 other artists, they developed a line of swimwear that would help more women like her feel more in tune with their own bodies. 

“The idea of Monokini 2.0 was born out of a need for clothing down as much as possible during a persistent heat wave. Having only one breast made finding fitting bikinis difficult, therefore I fashioned my own Monokini. Having done that, I thought that maybe there would be others out there like me, women who wanted swimwear that would not make them feel that they were missing a breast. Besides, being one-breasted creates great possibilities for cool swimwear design,” said Elina. See more images below:
