The Fight Against Breast Cancer

Not only supporting women’s desires for beautiful lingerie, Affinitas Intimates is pleased to give back and support women battling breast cancer as well.  The lingerie brand and HerRoom.com have teamed up to donate 20% of proceeds from the sale of the “Samantha” Half-Padded Bra in Magenta (retail $28.00), sold online at http://www.herroom.com during the month of October, to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Affinitas is thrilled to join the fight and aid in this incredibly important cause, empowering women with something that gives every woman confidence – beautiful, sexy lingerie.

As a company devoted to creating comfortable, stylish, well-fitting lingerie for women of all shapes and sizes (bras go from 30A – 40G) giving back during Breast Cancer Awareness Month was a natural fit.  Affinitas hopes that through sale of their popular “Samantha” style, they will be able to make a difference in the lives of brave and heroic women everywhere conquering breast cancer.

“Breast cancer affects so many women. Thanks to devoted organizations like the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, more women are coming through the fight victorious.  We are so happy that we can do our part in contributing to the search for the cure.”
– Affinitas Intimates

While the donation will center on the Half-Padded Bra in Magenta, Affinitas’ Samantha style additionally offers a Padded Bra, Balconet Bra, Hipster, Thong, Bustier, Camisole and Chemise, ensuring there is a sweet something for everyone.  Delicate ruffles, lace and bow detailing keep the looks sweet, while sheer paneling and bodices keep them sexy.  Want to stay pretty in pink?  Try the style’s fairy-tale feminine Pink Champagne, sure to help you reign in your Prince Charming.  Prefer to heat things up? Samantha’s lacy little things in Hot Pink will have you channeling your inner vixen all day (and night) long.  Whether you prefer to be naughty or nice, Samantha has you (well, almost) covered.

Style without fashion

Fashion, including what it stands for or is defined to be changes in a pace that even a writer cannot keep up with. But for all that it is and it gets to be, one would expect to see remnants of older styles or at least a progression of what used to be becoming what is and what is defining what is to be.

Not in all cases however. Like a river without a source, a direction or even a flow of some sort; how can that still be referred to as a river.

Fashion models waiting to walk

Picture the river, at the moment, dancing with pizzazz, swelling with currents and waves higher than you can imagine. Provocatively carrying everything in its wake, imposing, exposing, revealing, seducing, and yet when you look back the river possesses no signs of being what it is.

Almost like in a competition, it is about who squeezes their shapely or blowsy bodies into the most revealing, and strangling pieces, without even caring if the piece is an under or outerwear. In any case, they are now one and the same thing.

And ahead, the waves falter losing class, style and finally break up in all directions bringing an end to the meaning that they once gave to fashion and as a result refusing to define a path for further flow.

Flowing not with the current but like a flag; without a mind and thus a liking of its own changing direction with the wind. And when the wind is gone, it falls flat on its pole, like fashion does when style is gone.
