When the contestants of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette decide to put their hearts on the line by joining the show, they usually do so with suitcases full of sparkling dresses and show-stopping date looks in tow. And now, the stars from seasons past are auctioning off several of those memorable items — all in the name of charity.

From Aug. 5-12, luxury consignment service eDrop-Off will auction items from more than 25 former contestants, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross. Pieces include the frock Trista Sutter wore on her first date with now-husband Ryan Sutter (center); the dress Molly Malaney Mesnick wore to her first rose ceremony, where she met new hubby Jason Mesnick; a gown Sarah Brice wore when getting engaged to Charlie O’Connell (left); and Ed Swiderski’s infamous green shorts.

Emily Maynard — who recently endured a public split from fiancé Brad Womack — also donated a dress (right) and Bachelorette bride-to-be Ashley Hebert is auctioning off a top she just wore in Fiji.

To bid on your favorite outfit from the show, visit shopedropoff.com.

We wish to thank you all over again for the stunning ideas you gave Jesse when pranprieg a post-graduate research and, most importantly, for providing each of the ideas in a blog post. If we had been aware of your website a year ago, we may have been rescued from the unnecessary measures we were employing. Thank you very much.
