DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wacoal’s commitment to women extends beyond the design studio and into the community, where they support the fight against breast cancer through Fit for the Cure®—annual bra fit events benefitting Susan G. Komen®. To protect the health and safety of the community, Wacoal has canceled fall 2020 Fit for the Cure® in-store­ events, but they will continue to support Susan G. Komen®. Through Bras with a Cause, Wacoal will donate $2 to Komen for every regular price Wacoal or b.tempt’d bra purchased in stores or online from October 4-10.

“Giving back to the community is one of our core values,” says Mitch Kauffman, President and CEO of Wacoal America. “Since 1999, we’ve been standing alongside Komen in the fight against breast cancer, and we continue to support their mission even in these challenging times.”

This year, Wacoal celebrates 20 years of partnership with Komen and is proud to have donated more than 5.8 million dollars to support the fight against breast cancer. In 2020, Wacoal’s dontation will support Komen’s COVID-19 Action Fund.

“We’re incredibly grateful for Wacoal’s 20 years of partnership, generosity and shared commitment to support women facing breast cancer,” says Paula Schneider, Komen’s CEO. “Their continued support of our Treatment Assistance Program will enable patients to stay with their treatment and ultimately save lives. This assistance is critical now as we face uncertain economic times.”

In addition to Bras with a Cause, Wacoal is offering their best-selling sport bra in a limited edition pink. It will feature a pink ribbon flag on the back for breast cancer awareness. Wacoal is also introducing a mastectomy bralette. Both styles are available for purchase on wacoal-america.com or at select retailers.
