The struggle is real, my friends.
The struggle to find that unicorn of a bra – especially since becoming a breastfeeding mom. You know the one- the bra that fits so comfortably you forget you’re even wearing one. Or even the mystical bra that is not only comfortable, but you can wear it nonstop without the wire digging you in the ribs or a seam busting. I’ve always had a fuller bust, but since I delivered my son, almost two years ago, and soon began breastfeeding (and then stopping) I’ve found that my breasts are…umm…different. Breastfeeding does some pretty interesting things to a woman’s figure, which makes finding the perfect fitting bra that much more difficult.
I’ve done the nursing bras, the ill-fitting bras, the guessing my new size, and even getting fitted at those high end lingerie stores. Nothing seemed to work for me and I’m fed up with feeling as though there wasn’t anything out there was meant to fit me, but rather I somehow needed to fit the bra instead. What a defeating and embarrassing feeling as a woman!
Until, that is, I discovered ThirdLove and their line of bras and lingerie.
You don’t have to be a new mom to know what the bra struggle feels like. All women experience difficulty finding a comfortable and perfect fitting bra at least once in their life, but ThirdLove was created just for us women who don’t fit those conventional bra sizes! From their online Fit Finder Quiz to their try-before-you-buy program, they’ve considered and thought through every detail of fit, style, and size for the every woman.
Today I am so excited to share my experience with ThirdLove and why they’ll be my number one bra and underwear brand for years to come – and why you should consider giving them a shot, too!
The Fit Finder Quiz
One of the values that ThirdLove stands by is the idea that a woman should have a bra that fits her, not the other way around. By using their Fit Finder Quiz I was able to narrow down the bras that would be the best fit for me based on the information about my body and breasts that I provided. The quiz took only about 60 seconds to get through and by the end I was given suggestions on size, fit, and are given multiple styles to choose from. No more frumpy bras – especially for my fellow full-busted friends!
After you complete your little quiz you are given your results and bra suggestions.
Based on the results from my own Fit Finder Quiz I realized that my fit issues are that I overflow my cups, the band is often too tight, and my straps dig into my shoulders. For me, this was valuable information in moving forward in finding a bra that helps tackle these problems!
And speaking of finding my unicorn of a bra…
The 24/7™ Classic Full Coverage Bra
This bra was recommended to me based on my results from my Fit Finder Quiz. It’s their full coverage bra that is for fuller sizes (B-H and 32-46 size bands) and perfect for a number of breast shapes. The design incorporates ultra-thin hybrid foam – memory foam inside and support foam on the outside – and is made from a mixture of nylon and spandex for a smooth, comfortable fit. I love that they use memory foam in their straps as well, which insures no slipping! Also, if you’re like me and love reading customer reviews before buying, for each item you can read through real reviews to gain a better understanding for how each piece fit and what features they loved the most.
Achieving that ‘Perfect Fit’
Being amongst the first brand of bras to officially recognize that us women come in all shapes and sizes (as do our breasts), they’ve put A. LOT. of thought into how their bras are designed. First, they consider the ‘fit issues’ that most women encounter, such as: the strap digging into their shoulders, cups either overflowing or leaving a gap, digging underwire, and ill-fitting bands and hooks. Then, they work diligently to create a bra that is designed to be the most comfortable and best fitting no matter what problem you may have – even offering half-cup sizing!
Try Before You Buy!
Seamless design and no digging or slipping anywhere!
One of the most convenient options that ThirdLove offers their customers is their Try Before You Buy program. It’s exactly like it sounds – you simply select the option, browse and click the bra you’d like to try, it ships, and you take the time to decide whether it’s a good fit! If it’s not, you just send it back and try something different. If you love it, then just follow the checkout directions and you’ve found yourself possibly the best new thing for your breasts!
#BreakTheMold with ThirdLove
ThirdLove’s main philosophy – and what drives their purpose as a company – is empowering women to #breakthemold in their own lives by saying no to ill-fitting expectations and embracing the beauty every woman possesses. ThirdLove is a brand that is about supporting women, not only just with their line of bras, but recognizes that we can achieve more when we look and feel our very best.
ThirdLove also is philanthropically involved as well by donating over 1 million dollars worth of bras to women in need around the world. This is definitely a brand and cause I can fully support and get behind!
