Breast cancer research gets boost from calendar, models


Middletown’s lingerie shop, Tina’s Fine Lingerie and Swimwear on Main Street has released its annual fundraising calendar.

The 2020 edition of the calendar features local models in lingerie and swimwear– sometimes racy and sometimes glamorous– from the store.

Tina’s Fine Lingerie and Swimwear is owned by local entrepreneur Tina Fine, who had the idea for the calendar several years and continued the tradition ever since.

Some of the proceeds of the calendars, which are available at the store or via the web, will go to the Connecticut Breast Health Initiative in New Britain for breast cancer research. All models and photographers donated their services.

These are some outtakes from the calendar. (Disclosure, the calendar features contributions from this author.) To see what images made the cut, check out the calendar.
