(Fit Specialist, Deborah Lamica and I)
Last week I had the pleasure of attending a stylish, intimate event at Houston's premiere luxury hotel, Hotel Zaza, hosted by the global lingerie company, Wacoal. The event was held in Zaza's Rockstar Suite and included a sushi/veggie bar, champagne+berry infused drinks and adorable swag bags. In addition to all of the royal treatment we received at the event, it was also a space for knowledge sharing and product education. My two biggest take-ways from the evening were:
1. A yearly bra fitting is a must. Shame on me for underestimating "The Girls." Discovered that I needed to go up a few sizes and felt relieved to know that these back pains weren't simply a result of bad posture. Apparently, I have a small back so extra support is needed, especially since I spend at least 12 hours a day hunched over the computer.
2. Get a fitting = Support Breast Cancer Awareness. When you attend a Fit for the Cure event in your area and get a bra fitting, Wacoal will donate $2 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Also for any purchase made during the event, $2 of the purchase will also be donated to Susan G. Komen.
Fit for the Cure is a series of events held at department stores across the nation such as Macy's and Dillards. Click here to see when the next event is happening in your city.
Below are additional pics from the event as well as a few facts on how Wacoal has impacted Breast Cancer Awareness through their community-based programs.
To date, Wacoal has:
- Donated more than $2.7 million to
Susan G. Komen for the Cure®
- Held 10,397 Fit for the Cure events
- Fit over 507,242 women
