Wacoal and Taylor Dayne Join Forces for Fit for the Cure® and the Battle Against Breast Cancer

NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Wacoal, the nation's leading designer and intimate apparel brand, is teaming up with American pop icon and two-time Grammy Award-nominated artist Taylor Dayne, for an inspiring Fit for the Cure® campaign to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month and support the fight against breast cancer.

Renowned for her hit singles like "Tell It To My Heart" and "Love Will Lead You Back," Taylor Dayne is a strong voice for cancer awareness and early detection after her colon cancer diagnosis last year. Dayne will participate in select Fit for the Cure® events in 2023, along with hosting a kick-off celebration on September 19 in NYC to celebrate the partnership.

In the 22nd year of Fit for the Cure®, Wacoal has fit more than one million women and donated over $6 million to Susan G. Komen® to support their mission to help end breast cancer. One hundred percent of Wacoal's donations go to Komen's direct patient support services, including its Patient Care Center, which provides emotional support through the free Breast Care Helpline, access to breast health services, financial assistance programs, information about clinical trials, breast health and breast cancer education, and more, to anyone concerned about breast cancer.

"Being diagnosed with colon cancer gave me an instant reality check," said Taylor Dayne. "Life-altering decisions had to be made very quickly, and it's overwhelming, but I told myself to fight; and I did. By partnering with Wacoal, I continue that fight by using my voice and their Fit for the Cure® program to reciprocate the same hope, love, and help that I received, to people facing breast cancer. To those who are battling cancer, know that we are a community, and we are here to share our stories together. I'm also excited to see all my incredible fans in each city working together fighting against cancer."

This fall, more than 400 Fit for the Cure® events will occur in the United States and Canada, including at Wacoal's retail stores. To support this cause, Wacoal will donate $5 for every person who receives a complimentary bra fitting and purchases a regular-price Wacoal or b.tempt'd bra at a Fit for the Cure® event.

Additionally, customers can participate in the fight against breast cancer year-round by using Wacoal's digital fit tool, mybraFit™. Wacoal will donate $5 to Susan G. Komen for each person who completes the steps to size themselves digitally.
