This month we want to feature Bra Recycling Ambassador Hips and Curves. Rebecca Jennings, Founder and CEO pf Hips and Curves states, "There's a reason we used to call lingerie "foundation garments." That's partially because they're closest to our skin, but also because having them is the first step to making us feel dressed. Bras are basic support garments. Every woman should have a few that she can wear. They're also basic components of hygiene and of modesty and comfort, and we don't think anyone will argue with the fact that these are things every woman needs."
Ms Jennings shares their experience with donating bras in 2012. "We recall 2012, when we were asked to donate bras to a disaster-relief effort in Arkansas. It turns out, one thing the community needed desperately was underwear for women whose mobile homes, along with all their belongings, had been blown away in the same tornado season that devastated Joplin, MO. Bras are so often overlooked when we think of families in transition, but they shouldn't be. The right bra can, at the very least, help a woman's self-esteem, and we don't think that's a small thing."
BRAVO! We are so excited to partner with Hips and Curves as an affiliate and Bra Recycling Ambassador. We believe that every women deserves to feel beautiful no matter what their size or proportions. It is also our pleasure to include Hips and Curves in our One Undie One Less Homeless Youth Campaign (#OUOLHY). A percent of proceeds from purchases through our Undie Chest will benefit homeless youth.
