H&M has launched a new bra collection for breast cancer survivors
H&M has a new bra collection out this October for breast cancer survivors
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and, while Serena Williams is reminding women to “touch themselves,” H&M is reminding women to treat themselves…to a new bra, that is.
H&M has released a new bra collection called “Close to My Heart” that is specifically geared towards breast cancer survivors. An H&M employee and breast cancer survivor had the original idea when she was having a hard time finding a bra that was comfortable, stylish, and affordable after her battle with the disease.
The “Close to My Heart” collection will feature three different bra styles: a bralette, sports bra, and soft-cup style. The bras also come in neutral tones and in a variety of fabrics.
In addition to launching a new line of bras, H&M is also partnering with the American Cancer Society to raise $125,000. For every purchase made at H&M in the month of October, H&M will match the donation, up to $125,000. Not only that, but 100% of the profits from the “Close to My Heart” collection will go straight to the American Cancer Society.
Thanks, H&M, for making cute, affordable, and practical bras for Breast Cancer Survivors. What do you think about these bras? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below and be sure to subscribe to The Sitch for more Breast Cancer news and other entertaining reads.
