This year for Breast Cancer Awareness month Serena Williams has recorded her own version of the Divinyls hit ‘I Touch Myself’ as part of the I Touch Myself Project campaign with Berlei for Breast Cancer Network Australia to encourage early detection of breast cancer.
As part of the I Touch Myself Project, Berlei has released a new snakeskin print, rock star inspired bra called The Chrissy. Named after celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett of the Divinyls, who passed away from breast cancer in 2013, the bra is printed on the inside with the words ‘I Touch Myself’ to remind women to regularly examine their breasts.
Berlei will donate 100% of the profits from the bra to BCNA.

I touch myself project:
The I Touch Myself Project first launched in 2014, following the passing of Australian rock luminary, Chrissy Amphlett, who passed away from breast cancer at the age of 53. Chrissy was passionate about spreading awareness of the importance of early detection and wanted her global hit, ‘I Touch Myself,' to become an anthem for breast health around the world.
We have been a proud partner of Breast Cancer Network Australia since 2005, providing fundraising support and post-operative bras to women who have undergone breast cancer surgery. BCNA is there for every person with breast cancer at every stage of their journey, providing support and guidance to those affected and their loved ones.
