learn how to donate your bras
Forever Yours Lingerie is honored to run Supportive Start by Forever Yours Lingerie. We wanted to make a difference in our community, and what better than with what we know inside and out... Bras!
We collect new and gently used bras from our clients and work with our suppliers to get new bras, panties and other necessary items (such as new toiletries and feminine hygiene products) in order to distribute them to in-need and at-risk women. Many of us take for granted that we can get up in the morning and put on a clean bra and panties. There are a lot of women for whom that is not an option. Women who have left a violent situation with nothing, are homeless, marginalized, living in poverty and simply don't have the means to access the undergarments we need. These are the women we hope to help with our program.
We, at Forever Yours Lingerie, truly believe that every woman is and deserves to feel special. These are feelings that often diminish when a woman is facing a difficult time in her life. As a business specializing in personalized bra fittings, we know first hand the impact that a proper fitting bra or undergarment can have, not just physically but emotionally as well. This is why we do not just 'drop off' a box with donations but we set up Fit Clinics. A group of our female volunteers will visit a facility with bras and panties in a wide range of sizes. Each resident then receives a personalized bra fitting (Just like they would as a customer in our store) and leaves with couple of proper fitting bras, brand new panties and a goodie bag containing toiletries. Our goal is to instill confidence to these woman without judgement. Because we can all use a little bit of light while facing darkness - that and some well supported breasts!
