International Women's Day 2022: A spotlight on Fitted for Work

At Brava, we care immensely about supporting the wider community and are dedicated to making a positive contribution towards a range of charities. This year to celebrate International Women's Day we wanted to shine a spotlight on charities we support in our community that are making a difference in the lives of women. 

Fitted For Work equips disadvantaged women with the necessary skills, confidence and empowerment to seek meaningful, long-term employment. By building confidence, self-esteem, skills, and knowledge, they encourage women to obtain work through a range of pre-and post-employment programs and services that are delivered nationally. Fitted For Work is committed to using their abundance of knowledge and experience to inform and change government policy. They strive to inform perceptions around how women come to be faced with adverse conditions and the impact it has on them, their family and the wider community. Brava provides a range of bras and sports bras to Fitted For Work to show our support to their incredible cause.

At Fitted for Work we help women find work, keep work and thrive in their careers! Our tailored job-readiness services include personal outfitting, resume and cover letter support, interview preparation, confidence building and mentoring. We focus specifically on employment not only because work provides economic security, but also a sense of purpose, social connectedness, dignity and pride. We believe when you are fitted for work, you are fitted for life. We are incredibly grateful to Brava for their support this International Women’s Day!” – Caitlin, FFW National Marketing and Communications Manager


Here's some of the women who have received our donations via Fitted For Work

“Thanks for all your help and support, I felt so “heard” by you. Thank you so much for that. My life has improved SO MUCH since then and I am really grateful for Fitted for Work’s part in that. I feel so much more confident than I did this time six months or a year ago!”

“Having someone else choose clothes for me was a new experience. It was like having a friend shop with you. Everything I was handed to try on fit and gave me confidence. Being overweight, having confidence in clothes is rare.”

“Everyone was helpful, kind and discreet and encouraging and made the session a most enjoyable experience for me. Thank you all, beautiful ladies. This Fitted for Work experience was the best hour of my life for years. I never thought I would say I loved trying on clothes.”
