Garment empowers women in recovery from eating disorders by providing them with new, size-less clothing, individualized for their healthy bodies.
My close friends Erin and Jordan brought the idea of Garment to me in it's infancy and we have been working together since to make this dream a reality. Now as a member of Garment's founding Board of Directors, I am raising money to help women who have changed their lives, change their wardrobe.
Garment was founded out of Erin's personal experience with an eating disorder that made her realize the important role fashion could play in a healthy recovery.
For a long time, Erin let her ED dictate how she felt about herself and her body, turning simple tasks like shopping for clothes or getting dressed in the morning into paralyzing panic attacks. Clothing sizes often served as herscale, so seeing her closet range in fit was only a reminder of her struggle. It wasn’t until further into her recovery that she began to appreciate the power behind a great outfit, and learn to ignore the arbitrary size that she once tied to her self-worth. Erin's story is not uncommon, so we have created a way to help others find confidence through clothing.
Garment has developed relationships with national clothing retailers, treatment facilities, and industry experts and created a tool to give each candidate for our program an individualized online shopping experience, free of sizes and cost.
Thanks to opportunities like ACT and generous donations from individuals like you, we hope to grow and provide a service that helps people feel empowered, prepared, and confident. Please help me reach my goal for Garment by donating today!
