This year COSMO surveyed more than 1 800 South African women for their first-ever, national boob survey and learnt that a staggering 74% of respondents are either unhappy or only kinda happy with their bodies.
In response to the info collected, we launched #DearBoobs to celebrate all women’s bodies. We’re saying yes to all boobs – saggy boobs, pancake boobs, lopsided boobs, melon boobs … all boobs matter!
A celebration of all women!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the COSMO Self-Love Sunday brunch, in partnership with Strawberry Lips is the perfect time to be in the company of fierce females and to celebrate you!
At the event, you’ll enjoy delicious brunch, an amazing goodie bag, an Estée Lauder gift pack and raffle prizes. As well as an exhibition of our #DearBoobs portraits, a gratitude journalling workshop with a self-love plan, and a still-life, body-appreciation drawing class.
