Support the Girls

 

  • Only One Ligament Supports the Breast Tissue

  • There are no muscles in breast tissue (for a pair of DD's that can be up to 12 lbs. to support!) 

  • 25% of women don't work out as hard as they could because of breast bounce

  • More than 40% don't wear a sports bra to exercise or feel they have to wear multiple bras

We are committed to making sure no woman is held back in athletics due to a lack of support!


Right now, we're focusing this passion toward helping Charleston high school girls in the JROTC program. Through our work with the Charleston County Schools Wellness Committee and the MUSC Lean Team, it was brought to our attention in 2013 that many of these girls were struggling with a high BMI because they shied away from exercise. When asked further, it became clear that many of the girls were embarrassed and uncomfortable to do physical training with their male classmates because they didn't own a sports bra. 

We have now partnered with Moving Comfort to provide high-quality, high-support sports bras FREE for all these students in need. Through our Support the Girls weekends, we offer a buy-one-donate-one promotion so our customers can help us meet this need in the community.

Working with individual high schools, we set up bra fitting days so our staff can fit each female JROTC student for their proper size and needs. We then order the bras and deliver them upon arrival. On delivery day the girls get the chance to try out their new sports bras while we walk them through a good form running clinic.

Schools We've Served So Far:

-Stall High School

-Baptist Hill High School 

-Lincoln High School 

-West Ashley High School

-Wando High School

 

 We still have many schools to provide for! Please help us by shopping at the store during Support the Girls weekends. For each bra you purchase, one will be donated to these students in need.

Upcoming Support the Girls Weekends and Events:

*Stay Tuned!* Buy a bra and we donate one! Come in and get "fit" by one of our experience female staff members. Our goal is to get you in the right size, in the style you feel most comfortable in, with the amount of support you need!
