Chelsea Handler isn’t afraid to strip down to support what she believes in.

That’s why the 41-year-old comedian and talk show host is following in Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne’s footsteps and teaming up with English fashion designer Stella McCartney to raise awareness about one of the greatest health concerns affecting women: breast cancer. Sporting McCartney’s new Stella Lace lingerie sets, Handler lends her beloved personality to the camera for the cause.

So what’s so special about the new “Sweat Pea” pink pieces? The selection includes a bralette ($70) and bikini brief ($35) that features a lace design and a sporty, easy design. Each one will be shoppable beginning October 1 inside Stella McCartney stores, online, and select retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue. The best part? A portion of the profits will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the US and the Linda McCartney Center in the UK, both of which support the treatment of patients living with the illness. And while that alone sounds honorable, McCartney also designed the Louise Listening “post double mastectomy compression bra” that benefits the Hello Beautiful Foundation.

“Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women all over the world and does not discriminate,” McCartney, whose mother Linda died at age 56 after a long battle with the disease, said in a statement. “While most people are aware of this terrible disease, many also do not take the steps to regularly get checked to detect it at its early stages. This set I designed is meant to serve as a reminder to women to consider their health and visit their doctor regularly. It not only looks and fits great, but is also an important, healthy reminder.”
