The Full Figured Chest Launches the “I Am Made To Measure” Awareness Campaign and Giveaway
The Full Figured Chest and five independent lingerie designers are out to demonstrate just how inclusive the independent and made to measure lingerie world can be. Starting May 20th on thefullfiguredchest.com we’ll be launching a series of five posts to debunk some of the popular misconceptions surrounding made to measure lingerie, and to show that made to measure designers are actually the most qualified to cater to all shapes and sizes. The post series will end with a giveaway sponsored by five well known made to measure designers. The prizes will all be made to measure, and suitable for any and all body types.
Made to measure lingerie is often seen as an option that is only available to women of a certain body type in a certain income bracket. The Full Figured Chest and the designers sponsoring this contest are ready to debunk these myths and show that made to measure can be the perfect solution for any body type, as well as work with a wide variety of budgets.
