Giving Back With LingerieWords by Courtney Kellar

Some couples do it in the form of making a donation to their favorite charity in lieu of guest favors or visiting an impoverished area on their honeymoon. However, giving back doesn’t have to be big – when it comes to helping, even the smallest deed won’t go unnoticed. Empowered by You panties are one such example.
A cause-brand initiative, one dollar from the sale of every Empowered by You panty goes to benefit the Seven Bar Foundation, a non-profit organization empowering women worldwide out of poverty and into business through microfinance (small loans). According to Empowered by You, an unbelievable 60% of women worldwide live on under one dollar a day. Perhaps your donation will go further than you thought.
These panties incorporate a high-tech patented silicone “flocking” technology and side-seam fusion technique to ensure no slippage. They were designed as a “second skin” and can be worn under anything. They’re sold in single unites in reusable packaging and each panty includes a woman’s story who has been empowered through the Seven Bar Foundation.
These panties would make a perfect bachelorette gift for the bride or a “thank you” to bridesmaids for always sticking by your side. The panty comes in five colors in sizes S/M & M/L and retail for twenty dollars. The line is now in high-end boutiques and e-retailers nationwide. Confirmed retailers who carry the brand include Gansevoort Hotel Meatpacking and La Petite Coquette in New York, Faire Frou Frou in LA, En Avance in Miami and AHALife.com. Happy shopping and don’t forget that you’re making a difference in someone else’s life!
