PINKY PROMISE: an October Breast Cancer Awareness product edit

Many beloved brands, plus some fabulous new finds, are presenting products for this month only. Check it out, add to cart, and make a difference in the quest for the cure!

When detected early, it's not a death sentence. But still, so many of our fellow goddesses are suffering from breast cancer. We are losing the moms, daughters, sisters, wives, and dear friends we care so very deeply about.

While we hope and pray for a cure for this devastating illness, scientists are striving for a solution, and many companies are taking action this October, which is designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Here is an assortment of products I adore. Your purchase ensures that charities supporting this vital cause - which might someday save the life of the one you love (or even your own) - will benefit from proceeds.

PrettyLittleThing x Coppafeel! Pink All Over Boob Print Lingerie Set, £15.00

The PrettyLittleThing x Coppafeel! campaign in support of breast cancer awareness is a big attention-getter.

PLT has pledged to donate a minimum of £10,000 from the sales to Coppafeel! - a charity that furthers breast cancer awareness through education.
