In a Rosa Faia Purple Haze

Want your lingerie to stand out from all the taupes, whites and blacks? Well, try this Scarlett bra by Rosa Faia in purple haze. It's sure to do the trick.

We have gotten in the Scarlett line both with a molded cup and without. When the Scarlett by Rosa Faia is without the molded cup, there is embroidery on the upper part of each cup, while when the cup is molded, there is nary a bump or seam to be seen. Both designs feature highly ornamental straps - a pleasure to peak at thanks to tops with larger necklines.

The Rosa Faia Scarlett is available in 34-40, cups B-H. We are also carrying the matching brief in sizes M-XL.

Memory Foam for a More Natural Silhouette

Women wear bras not just for how they look, but also for how they feel, and we're happy to say the Chantelle Orsay Memory Foam T-Shirt Bra hits it out of the park on both counts.

The Memory Foam in this new Chantelle bra creates both a natural look and feel that allows the bra to mold to the shape of the woman - and not the other way around, which is common with stiffer foams. This makes the Orsay a bra that fits more shapes and sizes of women. Memory Foam also makes the bra crush-resistant, making it perfect for travelers.

This contemporary bra has modern saddle stitching details and a crystal at its center. This is the perfect piece for under the lighter fabrics of Spring and the nude colour vanishes under thin tops. Try this bra out under your new Spring frocks to truly bring them to life.

Donate a Bra to Help Human Trafficking Survivors

You might think of that bra you bought, but didn't fit, as just clutter, but to Yvonne Moran-Mead and her daughter Demi, 18 they mean much more. Your donated bras means female human trafficking survivors in other parts of the world can start rebuilding their lives.

Yvonne and Demi are collecting bras for an organization called Free the Girls. This organization ships bras to women in other countries, like their shipment to Mozambique whose recipients were sold into prostitution when they were between the ages of eight and 10.

The project in Mozambique was dubbed a success, with the women making up to five times the minimum wage in their area, as second-hand clothing is a profitable market.

According to Yvonne in the Comox Valley Record:
"It's sustainable because the girls are allowed to have a certain number of bras free of charge and then, in order to keep it going, they pay a small fee to get more bras into it, and they can work and go to school and try to feel better about themselves and their life," explains Yvonne, "You can see how it can actually change a woman's life — it's a big impact."
Please drop off you new or gently-used bras at Secret Drawers Lingerie at 431 5th Street, Courtenay.

And for more information on the bra donation program, or for other bra pickup points, call Yvonne or Demi at 250-897-3224, e-mail, or visit their website at
