Mumbai: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and keeping this in mind, designer Nidhi Munim has launched mastectomy swimwear collection for those women who want to look sexy even after surgery.
The swimsuit uses UV protective Lycra as a material, which makes the fit extremely versatile and flexible across sizes.
"I support Cancer Awareness whenever I get an opportunity and hence I've designed mastectomy swimwear. The swimsuit is cut and constructed around the unique Indian body shape using the special bodice blocks to give the right fit to Indian women,” the designer said in a statement.
"This has been probably the biggest contribution from the brand's side in proposing an undoubtedly cosmetic solution to breast cancer that women fail to receive when faced by society,” she added.
Munim is known for her customized high-end swimwear and has two brands under her - Nidhi Munim swimwear and NM swim.
