That's why PROPER ATTIRE(TM) was created," said PPFA President Cecile Richards. "With its fashionable wrapping, women will now have the option to choose the right 'attire' for that special occasion. Responsible decisions about sex are everybody's personal fashion statement." With four trendy styles -- Basic (regular); Color (colored); Dots (studded); XL (extra large) -- PROPER ATTIRE: Required for entry(TM) is a safe, yet fun and fashionable way to make sure you are properly protected. PROPER ATTIRE(TM) condoms come three condoms in a pack and will be sold at boutique shops and exclusive hotels. They will also be available at Planned Parenthood health centers and will soon be sold online. The suggested retail price of a three-pack is $6.00. Reliable and effective, PROPER ATTIRE(TM) condoms are not only FDA-tested, but undergo rigorous quality assurance testing by the manufacturer as well as by independent laboratories. With increased awareness about the spread of sexually transmitted infections, the practice of safer sex is of the utmost importance. "When we decided to create a new condom line, we knew that we wanted to make it cool for women to carry condoms," said Rachel Molloy, brand director of PROPER ATTIRE(TM). "Every element of the brand has been inspired by the world of fashion, from the PROPER ATTIRE(TM) brand name, and the chic packaging created by designers, to the fig leaf logo showcasing clothing in its most primitive form." Research shows that every year there are more than three million unintended pregnancies and approximately 19 million men and women will contract a sexually transmitted infection. Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is the nation's leading sexual and reproductive health care advocate and provider. PPFA believes that everyone has the right to choose when or whether to have a child, and that every child should be wanted and loved. Planned Parenthood affiliates operate more than 860 health centers nationwide, providing medical services and sexuality education for millions of women, men, and teenagers each year. With PROPER ATTIRE(TM) as the new "must-have" of the season, insist on a dress code. PROPER ATTIRE(TM) ... it is required for entry.
