Have you ever been properly fitted for a bra? How old is the bra you’re wearing right now? According to research 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong sized bra. This month Wacoal is hosting several Fit for the Cure events in the Lake County area to get women properly fitted for bras as well as raise money for the Susan G. Komen for breast cancer research and community health programs.
At each event women will receive a complimentary bra fitting from a Wacoal specialist. For every fitting that takes place Wacoal will donate $2 to Susan G. Komen. An additional $2 will be donated for every bra or shapewear piece that is purchased at the event.
Wacoal has been sweeping the nation for over ten years educating and fitting 600,000 women about the importance of bra fit and foundation as well as overall breast health. Through Fit for the Cure Wacoal has donated more than $3.3 million to Susan G. Komen.
