The annual NYC marathon took over the town recently with more then 50,000 runners participating. In honor of the event we decided to check out some of the running shoes that have been hitting the stores lately….and woah! From color blocking to all over patterns, sneakers are no longer just for the gym. Here are some of our favorite ways to amp up your foot gear….

As we head into our last week in October aka Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’d like to share a few of our favorite ways people have been creatively showcasing their support….
Sift, Stir & Savour created these chocolate cupcakes in honor of a friend’s mother who recently completed chemotherapy for breast cancer.
A guardrail across the Kansas River bridge was decorated with hundreds of bras strung together. The purpose is to raise awareness and inspire woman to schedule mammograms.
The Minnesota Pink Ribbon Run is a Minnesota motorcycle ride in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. Participants creatively decorate themselves and their bikes to show support.
We are so proud to be in our 13th year of Fit for the Cure. It’s amazing to see stores get so energized behind a cause! With more than 1000 events throughout the year, breast cancer awareness is for more than just October! Get fit and Wacoal will donate $2 to Susan G. Komen, and an additional $2 for every piece purchased.
We love this retro Wacoal Awareness ad from its launch in 1999. We’ve been raising awareness for almost 15 years! Do you remember this piece of Wacoal history?
Polka dots are back in a big way. We all wore them in one way or another when we were young. Now put the playful pattern back into your wardrobe. Don’t forget to rock them under your outfit as well! Be sure to check out our Spot On underwire bra and hipster panty.

This customer sticks with me because even though she was a lovely woman she was so upset and frustrated with trying on bras she was in tears! She tried on several of our fuller figure styles and just wasn’t happy with how they felt, complaining about this or that. She decided she would have to give up and said that there was NOTHING out there for her and this happens all the time. I calmed her down and let her know I was there for her and that I had one more option she could try, our Awareness bra. She had been wearing way too big a band and not a large enough cup; I upped the cup one more size in this style, and when she tried it on a huge smile came on her face. She immediately could tell that it gave her support and lift. She walked out with two Awareness bras! And no tears.

“A stylist and her customer came into the intimate apparel department looking for a great strapless bra and shapewear that make her new cocktail dress fit flawlessly. I of course fit her in the amazing Red Carpet Strapless, and the Cool Definition long leg shaper to match. She loved the way the material felt in the shaper and appreciated the support and lift from the strapless bra. Two purchases later and they were on their way, another satisfied customer. About two weeks and many fittings later, I was watching my daughter at gymnastics and talking with some of the other moms. One of them came and sat down next to me. We caught eyes and both of us were looking at one another as if we knew each other, but we couldn’t figure out from where. As we chatted trying to figure it out, all of a sudden at the same exact time we both blurted out “My (your) bra fitting!” She started to show me pictures from the event and how wonderful she looked in her dress, and when her friend found us chatting away and asked how we knew each other we, again at the same time, responded “intimately.”
