Jun '11
Alicia Vargo, the owner and founder of Pampered Passions Fine Lingerie Bras, has partnered with Dress for Success Worldwide (based in NY) to professionally fit disadvantaged women with new and properly fitted bras.

The initiative is called "Alicia's Bras for Success," and is being coordinated by Vargo in partnership with Dress for Success, an international non-profit organization that helps disadvantaged women achieve self-sufficiency. Vargo says it's her mission to ensure all women - no matter their background - have the opportunity to feel confident and comfortable underneath their professional attire.

Kicking off the five-city national tour on July 28th 2011, in Albany, New York, Vargo estimates that nearly 100 women will be fitted with new bras at each event. Alicia will be travelling to Los Angeles, Houston and finishing up her tour in NYC by October 2011.

When: Thursday, August 11, 2011 from 4-8 p.m.

Where: Dress for Success Worldwide, 32 East 31st Street, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10016

Why: Disadvantaged women deserve to have a new and properly fitted bra so they feel comfortable and confident when going on job interviews.

Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
