The TODAY Show Holiday Gift Drive is a project of the Today Show Charitable Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donations are matched with the needs of more than 200 organizations with which the Today Show Charitable Foundation works.
Founded in 2003, Essential Bodywear continues to grow with a strong sense of mission: to support and uplift women everywhere by revolutionizing the way women shop for quality, properly fitting bras through home parties. Many traditional retail outlets don't carry a complete line of sizes or experienced salespeople resulting in a high percentage of women wearing the wrong bra size. With bra sizes A-H, EBW not only found a need, but also has made great strides to fill a niche the rest of the bodywear competition has missed with their Certified Bra Fit Specialists that bring an entire bra store to your door.
Essential Bodywear is a woman-owned, five million dollar company with 14 employees and currently over 350 Independent Representatives in 42 states. Featured in many media outlets including Michigan 50 Companies to Watch as a 2010 Award Recipient, Family Circle Magazine, and The Today Show, their Certified Bra Fit Specialists have struck a chord with women throughout the country. Essential Bodywear revolutionizes the way women shop for bodywear by developing lifelong customer relationships, sustaining and preserving women's health and self-esteem, and offering an entrepreneurial opportunity that is both profitable and personally rewarding. Essential Bodywear can create a new you, underneath!
