During this promotion, shoppers will get on FREE bra when they buy any Vanity Fair bra at regular price, AND Vanity Fair will donate one bra to Dress for Success.
Through this initiative, Vanity Fair has committed to donating up to 50,000 brand-new bras to Dress for Success, with the goal of providing one bra to nearly every woman who walks through Dress for Success' doors in the U.S. this year.
