Every year, the month of October is dedicated to raising awareness of breast cancer, known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is something extremely close to our hearts, with all of the Perfect Dress Company team being touched by breast cancer in some way, from friends and family members, to brand ambassadors.
In fact, a staggering 1 in 7 UK women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. It’s a subject that we feel passionately about, so much so that we include a ‘Save Your Life’ flyer in each of our orders created by the amazing Helen Addis, a breast cancer ‘arse kicker’ and campaigner, encouraging women to check their breasts. It includes instructions on how to check your boobs for any abnormalities such a lumps and bumps or puckering. So please take a moment when you are trying on your new Perfect Dress Company dress to check your boobs, as early diagnosis could mean a better chance of successful treatment.
For some more tips on ways that you can ensure you are checking your boobs thoroughly head over to the NHS website.
And throughout October we will also be donating 50% of the profits from our Darcy Rose Meaningful Jewellery collection to Breast Cancer Haven, a fabulous charity that gives vital one to one physical, emotional and practical support and advice to anyone affected by breast cancer.
Our Meaningful Jewellery is designed to truly mean something, our unique earrings have been created to empower women, with each semi-precious stone being picked for its own unique and powerful meaning.
