La Vie en Rose supports confidence
La Vie en Rose is hoping to help women feel good in their lingerie with a new campaign.
Dubbed Confidence Through Comfort, the initiative aims to highlight each woman’s individual beauty by showcasing women of varying ages, ethnicities and body types in a few of the brand’s top-selling styles.
“It is clear to us that the discussions among our customers are no longer about being sexy above all when it comes to lingerie,” Marie-Noel Gervais, the vice-president of ecommerce at La Vie en Rose, said in a news release.
“They want to feel good first, please themselves before anyone else and accept and enjoy who they are and how they look.
“We wanted to create a campaign with this in mind, in which our customers could see themselves.”
