Love is Always the Answer

February 03, 2021

It's been a tough year, hasn't it?

For us, it's been brutal. This past year, we lost Mei - beloved owner of our subcontracted sewing factory - to lung cancer and Silver Lucy - our fashion designer friend - to ovarian cancer. Two of our friends, Alex and Josh, tragically passed in separate drowning accidents, Alex leaving behind two little girls. Other close friends have had their homes burned to the ground by wildfires. Elderly family members under our care have suffered serious brain injury from strokes and serious bodily injury from falls. We've even had a close family member take his own life. And then there was Covid-19 on top of all of that.
Self Love Positivity
But we're still here. We're still standing. And what have we learned? Moving through grief and loss takes courage, patience and grace. But, to steal a line from Silver, "Love is always the answer." And to steal a line from Alex's memorial, "Don't forget to use your Love super-power on yourself." This Valentine's Day, maybe more than ever, we can use a reminder that Love will get us through the hard times and that the most important person to love is ourselves.


Be Your Own Valentine Love Heart
We've blogged about this before. Guest blogger Erin has contributed posts about Self Love and Body Positivity. Natty C, another guest blogger, continued these themes of self-acceptance with a Self Love Warrior post, a Love Yo Self Day! post and another titled I am BOOtiful. And we have twice suggested that we can and should be our own Valentines: Why You Should Be Your Own Valentine in 2017 and Our Self Love Campaign.

Dear Dare,
Every year, my sweetie buys me stuff for Valentine's Day that I don't REALLY want or need. I don't really need any more stuffed animals - I'm not 12! And even though I LOVE chocolate, do I really NEED any more chocolate? OK, yeah, everyone needs more chocolate! But still, what I really want (and need!) is some new outfits 'cause fashion is my passion...

Size Guide

Relax. Don't worry. If you don’t like the way it fits, you can return it… no questions asked.  It’s important to us that you LOVE the way Dare Fashion makes you feel about yourself!

Among the images for each product listing is a style-specific size chart. For our tops and dresses, you can get your Dare size with ONLY ONE measurement of your bust!

Please use the size charts as a guideline. Our fashion is made to these specifications, but due to variations in the stretchiness of the fabric and how it is sewn, there may be some slight deviations from this chart. But please rest assured, all of our styles are designed to fit a range of body types, with features such as stretch fabrics, corset lace-ups,  and spaghetti ties in the back to customize the fit.

And did we mention... if it doesn’t fit, you can return it, no questions asked! So buy with confidence. And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us - we're here to help!
