This is the Inbox I received from a friend through Facebook on January 7, 2010 at about 4:15p EST:

"Some fun is going on.... just write the color of your bra in your status. Just the color, nothing else. And send this on to ONLY girls no men .... It will be neat to see if this will spread the wings of cancer awareness. It will be fun to see how long it takes before the men will wonder why all the girls have a color in their status... Haha!"

Participating was a lot of fun! Friends and I began conversating about various things that generated much laughter. Much to the men's shagrin, we were also amused by their bewilderment.
It is amazing to read of the positive affects this fun generated; in adding Facebook fans to the Susan G Komen Facebook profile!

I had fun doing it as well but then started getting replies from the email from a woman that has just went nuts over the hole thing talking about how disrespectful, dirty, sexual..etc that it was and how her husband was offended and would no longer use Facebook because it was no longer "family friendly". I just cannot believe that someone would take such offensive in trying to get the awareness out about such a nasty, deadly disease! Im totally flabbergasted!!!

I just can't believe that it supports cancer. Many women who have had cancer can't wear regular bras. The ones we can wear come in white and beige and are NOT sexy.

I'm disappointed in having so many beige replies. Whatever happened to red or black.

I'm starting to think the industry around breast cancer awareness has 'jumped the shark'. It's just over saturated with silliness, not much disease fighting.

My Mom was a breast cancer survivor, but adrenal gland cancer got her, but I lost an aunt to breast cancer at age 50 and a cousin at age 38. Too young.
This brought a smile to so many faces, some grumblers, hopefully eased up once the cause was revealed.
Regardless what anyone thought, YAY!!! for what it did for Susan G Komen....now guys, how about being as slick as we were and come up with something original for prostate cancer awareness!!

Does it not speak volumes that the Susan G Komen fan base went from just over to 100 people to just over 700 people? That alone might lead to an increase in the number of people who participate in the Walk for the Cure campaign which raises awareness as well as funds for breast cancer research.

Any awareness is better all indifference.

Think of it this way, another word for "beige" is "nude"...:). Hope that helps:)

Find a friend who sews and use your imagination. BBw's have been doing this for years!! I'm sorry you had to go through that. My Mom survived breast cancer but her siser and a neice lost the battle.

You have me thinking now...uhmmmm, how to convert such a bra to pretty...

I hope you have a wonderful and Healthy New Year.

Penny,*I* sew. I sew very well and have designed my own clothes on occasion.

However, unless those pockets are made just right they are really hard on the form, and they can actually break apart.

Do you have any idea what they cost?

I would urge women not to do that. If you don't do it well enough, the form can still pop out. Make just a hair too tight and it's hard on the form.

We didn't start it for the news. It's for the cause. But hey! Thanks ladies for joining in. We had fun.

Alescia, since I have had breast cancer (and my mother, and my grandmother, and my greatgrandmother, and both daughters at great risk for it) I think I'm entitled to an opinion.

I think this is a really poor way to draw attention to breast cancer. There are hundreds of better ways.

I'm sorry u don't like this way. My sister had breast cancer, & anyway to bring the awareness is OK with me. And many others.This way it gets people's attention maybe not the right kind of people, but it's the cause. Hope u have a wonderful day
