Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty collection supports breast cancer survivors. Just when we thought we couldn’t love Rihanna more, the entrepreneurial queen of beauty, fashion, and music has released a lingerie collection to raise awareness for young women diagnosed with aggressive forms of breast cancer.
Savage X Fenty partnered with RiRi’s charity, the Clara Lionel Foundation, to create a beauty box that will not only make you look good but feel good, too.
The money raised through this collection will go towards funding critical research. This research will help tackle aggressive types of breast cancer that plague women all around the world.
“I want to raise awareness for under-served breast cancer communities and Savage X Thrivers represents young women of all walks of life living and thriving with cancer,” Rihanna said. “The easiest way for people to get involved and make a difference is by shopping this box and collection,” she added.
The Savage X Fenty Collection
Each box comes with a couple of goodies all in different shades of pink, starting with a scalloped, fuchsia lace bralette and matching Brazilian-cut thong. The set is paired with a cotton candy colored pant made from a soft ribbed knit. And even though we know RiRi doesn’t play games, she threw in some Savage dominoes to complete the box. Savage X Fenty has always been about inclusivity. The box set runs sizes for everyone, ranging from XS up to 3X.
The rest of the collection is just as dreamy as the box, featuring airy slips, angelic teddies, and other lace and satin silhouettes. For each purchase, a minimum donation of around $3.75 is required to help fund research towards finding a solution for a cancer that affects hundreds of thousands of individuals every year.
Cancer can be a debilitating disease, Rihanna wants to challenge this by showcasing four women that are thriving. These women had aggressive breast cancer early on in their lives. But they don’t let their diagnosis keep them from feeling beautiful, fearless, and unstoppable. That’s why Savage X Fenty has aptly named them #SAVAGEXTHRIVERS.
Fenty Collection Supports Breast Cancer Survivors
Their stories serve as a beacon of hope for other ladies out there that are struggling with having breast cancer at a young age. “I think what is so important, is that you just share. You never know who you are going to inspire if you just share, share, share,” said Nalie Agustin. She lives with stage four metastatic cancer, after first being diagnosed at age 24.
Rihanna’s Fenty collection supports breast cancer survivors and thrivers. These women are not only speaking out to inspire others, but to also stand with other thrivers. “Sharing the evolution of your journey and your experiences makes other people feel less alone, less of an anomaly,” said Stephanie Seban. She was diagnosed at age 31. Dually, these stories may signal other ladies to get routine checks no matter their age. “It also raises awareness that if something feels wrong, you should get it checked out.”
Promoting Self-Love and Confidence
Rihanna’s new collection has harnessed for young women with breast cancer.
The campaign also touches on the importance of self-love.
Thriver Bianca Muniz was just 11 when she first faced ovarian cancer. In her early twenties, she’s been re-diagnosed with breast cancer. “I’m still learning, but I feel like I love myself and I love my body more than I ever have. It sucks that it took cancer for me to get there, but I’m here, and I’m learning everyday,” she said.
“I just got over it. This is me, [this is my body] and I’ve just started to embrace it—like, this is what it is,” stated Johanna De La Cruz, diagnosed at 32 years old after an ectopic pregnancy. Johanna’s candid quote speaks to what Savage X Fenty is all about; embracing who you are, how you look, and being damn proud of what your body can do.
