Fit for the Cure

Research shows that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong sized bra.

Receive a complimentary fitting in a Wacoal, DKNY Underwear or Donna Karan Intimates bra from a fit specialist Thursday at Dillard’s in Colonial Mall from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can also sign up to receive a monthly e-mail reminder to do a self breast exam. For every woman who participates, Wacoal will donate $2 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for breast cancer research and outreach programs.

Research also shows an estimated 178,480 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in American women in 2007 alone. A monthly breast self-examination is an important way to detect abnormalities at an early stage.
