Teta & Teta and Mango together for inclusivity: here is the new collection of underwear and swimwear for women who have undergone a mastectomy
To stand alongside women who have undergone a mastectomy: with this goal, Mango – a clothing and accessories brand – has launched a new collection of lingerie and swimwear for all those women with only one breast, or with implants, following surgery.
The initiative, which has received the consent of the general public, aims to meet the needs of women who, following a mastectomy, have chosen not to undergo breast reconstruction. So here is a line that is inclusive and accessible to all, not only from the point of view of design, but also of price.
As Justi Ruano, Head of Design at Mango, pointed out in a press release: “Our community, our customers are our priority. We want to listen to them, offer solutions and adapt to their needs ".
The company has also decided that all profits from the sale of the products in the collection will be entirely donated to the Teta & Teta association, a non-profit organization active on the international scene with special projects that claim women's freedom.
Among these, there is also that of joining women who have undergone a mastectomy, with the commitment to normalize their bodies and eliminate any form of discrimination and diversity.
This surgery, which involves the surgical removal of the breast, is one of the most important moments for the therapy of most of the malignant tumors that affect this organ. The surgery has numerous variations, more or less demolitive, which are performed according to the severity of the disease.
Breast cancer is the most frequent neosplasia of all in the female population and affects a woman 8. In 2018, in Italy, more than 52,000 women were affected by the disease (source Aiom-Airtum).
The data published by the AIRC, on the occasion of World Cancer Day, are anything but comforting. In 2020, female breast cancer occupied the first position in the ranking of the most frequent cancers diagnosed in 185 countries around the world. Breast cancer in women represents 11.7 percent of new diagnoses.
According to a study carried out by Antonio Giordano, and published in the International Journal of Experimental and Clinical Cancer Research, in the last decade there were 328,888 mastectomy surgeries following a diagnosis of breast cancer.
And it is precisely for these women that Mango channeled strength and energy to develop a capsule collection that included three bras, two one-piece swimsuits and a bikini. Thanks to the versatility of these garments, they can be worn both by women with one sense and by those with prostheses. The models, made in Spain, will be available worldwide in a wide range of sizes, from S to XXXL.
