I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Vanity Fair Lingerie. I received product samples to facilitate my review and compensation to thank me for my participation.
Now is the time!!!
If you have put off getting a new bra or getting fitted for a bra, you need to get out your calendar and make an appointment with yourself over the next month and a half.
(Plus, besides feeling good about yourself in your new bra, you’ll help a deserving women feel good about herself.)
I’ve always said a new bra can make you look 10 pounds lighter and increase your confidence (even before I was a Vanity Fair ambassador) and Vanity Fair believes the same thing!
During the Vanity Fair Buy One, Get One, Give One Event, when you buy one Vanity Fair bra in-store or online, you will receive a FREE Vanity Fair bra AND Vanity Fair will donate a new bra to Dress for Success® on your behalf to help a woman on her journey to economic independence.
And their goal….wait for it…is to give 50,000 bras to Dress for Success® so that every women who walks into Dress for Success® will get a new bra.
HOW COOL IS THAT?
For those not familiar with Dress for Success®, they are an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and career development tools to help them thrive in work and in life.
When we were at the Vanity Fair Blogger Summit, we were able to meet one of the women who went through the Dress for Success® program and hear her story. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house after she was done.
When she described her experience of being unemployed to employment, I was struck by how it was small acts of kindness that made her confidence soar.
- A positive word from a counselor.
- A “good job” after she updated her resume.
- A new dress for the interview.
- New lingerie to go under her new interview dress.
- People shaking her hand after an interview.
Which is why I also LOVE that after you purchase your Vanity Fair bras, you can also write a small note to the Dress for Success® bra recipient (Vanity Fair likes to call them “Little Lifts”) encouraging them in a small way to be confident in a big way.
This is a win-win-win.
- You get a good fitting bra. (I recommend the Vanity Fair Beauty Back Bra.)
- You get a good deal. (Because you get another one for FREE!)
- You get to give a bra and encouragement to a women who needs it.
