Bra Fashion Show

Ten scantily-clad local ladies strutted their stuff to hoots and hollers last Thursday night in Southampton. It was for a good cause, though.

The models, who included hospital volunteers, a US Navy veteran, a former news editor, and breast cancer survivors, donned reconstructed bras designed by local artists for the eighth annual Reconstructed Bra Fashion Show & Auction at the Southampton Social Club. There wasn’t a final tally on the 20 auctioned bras, which will support — no pun intended — Lucia’s Angels and the Coalition For Women’s Cancers at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital. The event is believed to be a record breaker because the average bid price was $1000.

The top bid of $3000 went to Catherine Casabianca’s “Growing Strong,” worn by breast cancer survivor Moira Squires.
