Monokini 2.0 : The Swimsuits for Breast Cancer Survivors

Monokini 2.0 is a social art project that re-examines popular culture’s narrow view of a woman’s ideal appearance. We strive to expand what is accepted and considered beautiful by designing a swimwear collection for women who have gone through breast cancer. Swimwear is conventionally designed for women who haven’t suffered a mastectomy. The fact is that many women who have had one breast removed due to breast cancer don’t wish to have breast reconstruction surgery, they wish to continue their lives with one or no breasts at all.

A group of Finnish fashion designers are designing a swimwear collection for Monokini 2.0. The swimwear collection is modeled by women who have gone through breast cancer. The collection will be also exhibited in a performative catwalk venue. The artistic director of Monokini 2.0 is the art duo Tärähtäneet ämmät / Nutty Tarts. The original idea is by Elina Halttunen (PhD), the woman with one tit.” Source
