Let’s be honest, buying a bra that actually fits can be hard. Add in the whole “shopping online” piece to it and it makes the task seemingly impossible. How do you know what size to get? How do you know that the cup will actually keep those nipples covered [we can say nipples here, right?] what if it isn’t comfortable and the list of doubts goes on and on. The good news is, there is hope people. I am a product of hope and today I’m here to share my story and hopefully relieve you of all of your bra shopping online myths and fears. So here’s a fun story – I was wearing the completely wrong [like very wrong] bra size my entire life until this year. You could say 2017 will go down as the most life-changing [and uplifting] year I’ve ever had #brapun. For whatever reason, my brain one day had decided that “Erin, you are a 34D” and so that’s what I believed. Was I measured? No. Were straps falling off of me? Yes. Were those nipples just hanging out wherever they pleased? You better believe it.

For whatever reason, my brain one day had decided that “Erin, you are a 34D” and so that’s what I believed. Was I measured? No. Were straps falling off of me? Yes. Were those nipples just hanging out wherever they pleased? You better believe it. And then magic happened, insert ThirdLove.My girlfriend had told me about the brand and that she tried their famous 24/7TM Classic T-Shirt Bra and was hooked. Well, I like t-shirts I thought so I probably need a 24/7TM Classic T-Shirt Bra too. Before ordering, I did something I had never done before. I took some time learning about my boobs and giving them the attention they deserve. I got fitted. I took a Fit Finder quiz online [this one to be exact] to learn more about my actual shape and what that meant for which style of bra would fit and support my chest best. Because ThirdLove has a Try Before You Buy program, I was able to purchase my suggested bras with zero worries. What does that mean exactly? I could have the bras delivered right to my home to try on right in the comfort of my bedroom, no horrible dressing room mirrors to antagonize me. THOSE ARE THE WORST. They allow you to wear the bra for 30 days to see how it fits and feels and if it doesn’t, awesome – send it back. If it works out? Well, your boobs will be happy, believe me, I have some ecstatic boobs over here.
Here is some more cool news about ThirdLove and their bras – they offer half-cup sizes [I know, WHAT] to provide a more precise fit and has recently developed a mobile sizing app that allows you to measure yourself at home. They are about fitting ALL body shapes and sizes and strives to create bras that fit real women. And then the crowd said amen.
With fall and winter on the horizon, they just released some new delicious little colors and styles and like with anything, knew I needed to add them into my wardrobe rotation. I have been wearing ThirdLove bras for a while now and I’ve gotta say, I still get amazed at how well they fit and feel. I constantly want to say “look mom! No lines!” when flaunting around town in the 24/7TM Classic T-Shirt Bra. It is the smoothest, most comfortable bra on the planet. So yes, one of those in the perfect plum color [potent plum to be exact] and then I went with the Longline Lace Balconette Bra in evening blue for a sexier option. Both fit incredibly well and look even better. I am so thankful that I discovered ThirdLove and now have a better understanding of not only what size bra band and cup size work best for me, but what style as well. The Longline Lace Balconette Bra looks oh so cute peeking out of those off the shoulder, looser fitting sweaters while the beloved 24/7TM Classic T-Shirt Bra is awesome for your everyday needs. Are you ready to jump aboard the bra bandwagon with me? You are only one click away from being introduced to the best bra of your life…
