Anita Fontana Dedicates her Bra to Lee Mirabel and husband John Sell

Wow! I was in for a surprise when I opened today’s mail. One of our returning Artists, Anita Fontana, who last year created the Rainbow Beach bra Rainbow Beach BraAnita Fontanahas submitted another winner. This one is a first for the Bling My Bra campaign as Anita decided to actually DEDICATE her bra to someone. Love this idea!

Here is what Anita wrote in her enclosed note: “This bra is dedicated to Lee Mirabel, her husband John Sell, and the love that keeps them strong.

Much thanks to Anita Fontana, from Chicago, IL, who is a Professional Speaker, Trainer, Volunteer with Sit, Stay, Read, an Education Specialist and sells Women’s Plus Size Clothingn on eBay.

About My Bra:

I wanted to do something different from everyone else’s, and wanted a ‘theme.’ Deciding upon a ‘fiftie’s-style’ bra, I knew it needed a bullet-style bra as the ‘foundation.’ Ended up being more difficult than originally planned, as far as finding the ‘right’ bra, in ‘like-new’ condition, and locating the bling things.
