It's All About Support: Corporate Giving and You

From our very first days, Bare Necessities has been proud to support a variety of causes and research initiatives, especially those that make a difference in women's lives. We have partnered with Susan G. Komen for the Cure for many years, The Breast Cancer Site, Le Mystere's Go Red Campaign to support The American Heart Association, Chantelle's Dress for Success program, and Wacoal's Fit for the Cure campaigns, among others. Most recently, we partnered with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation-- our most successful fundraising effort yet. But we didn't do it alone: you are the reason that we've succeeded in reaching our fundraising goals. Our commitment: to continue to embrace and support causes that we feel are important.

"Hello...I just wanted to let you know how very happy I am with my order! It came very quickly and I love the way you packaged it; it made it very special to open. I absolutely love what I ordered and I will definitely recommend your website to my friends. Thank you again for carrying my very large size! LOL! :) I can't seem to find it in stores anywhere."

"I wanted to let you know this purchase was the first time that I have order from Bare Necessities. I am delighted with my new Chantelle bras. They fit absolutely perfect. They arrived in only three business days using the free shipping offer. I couldn't be happier with the product, fit and delivery. Chantelle Bras are true to fit, 34C. I really liked all of the extra information given on each bra on the web site. It was very helpful in my decision to buy with this company. Thank you for the email on when my purchase was shipped. Great way to do business and I will recommend you to all.
Thank you much!"

"Loved my new swimsuit and received it so quickly. True to size. I couldn't be happier with Bare Necessities."

Lori K

"I was so surprised at how quickly my order arrived! It was at my door only a day or so after I'd placed my order. Can't get any better than that! Very happy with the product as well!"


"Dear Sir/Madam, When I returned home from work today, I found this package on my steps. It was from Bare Necessities.
I could not believe that it was just yesterday I placed an order and today I received it. Oh my gosh, you guys are good! I surely thought that I wouldn't received the items for another 7-10 days. Now that's what I call service and free shipping - even better!
I will keep you in mind for future purchases and certainly will tell "everyone" of my experience with your company.
Thank you so very much."
