Now, for the ThirdLove lounge wear review!
Y’all know I’ve been a huge fan of ThirdLove bras for a little over 2 years now. Their t-shirt bras and their full coverage bras are awesome (and you can see some of my previous posts reviewing them HERE and HERE).
You also know that I’m SERIOUS about being cozy. Some might say obsessive. #whatever 😉
In fact, you will rarely find me wearing real clothes at home. Most of the time, within 5 minutes of walking in the door, I’ve stripped off my “real clothes” and slipped into something more comfy. I’ve been that way my entire life. Ten years ago, that meant that I threw on one of Chris’s old t-shirts and a pair of drawstring shorts or pants. So, I was comfy…..but I definitely wasn’t cute.
Over the years I’ve really stepped up my lounge wear game and have several pieces I really like, but I was absolutely THRILLED to learn that ThirdLove now had some options for me. GIRLS. This lounge wear is a game changer because now I can be incredibly comfy AND CUTE at home. #thatsabonusforchris 😉
I chose to try items from the Seamless Bamboo Lounge collection, and man am I glad that I did.
Per the ThirdLove site: The collection is “made from breathable bamboo fabric that works overtime to keep you comfortable day and night. Designed to wear as a layering piece, our Seamless ¾-Sleeve Tee is perfect for lounging at home, out and about running errands, or even to bed.”
When talking about the top, “The seamless design means no uncomfortable side seams and flat seaming at the armhole and shoulder. And, with flattering ruched side details, you’ll want to show it off.”
When talking about the pants, “And, with a smoothing waistband, no inseams or outseams, and knitted chevron detailing, you won’t want to take them off.”
I completely agree with their item descriptions. Both the top and bottoms are so easy and comfortable to wear. The ruched detailing on the side makes it EXTRA cute as does the chevron texture and detail on the pants. I ran out of the house one day while wearing it to chase JuneBug (one of my neighbor’s dogs) down the street, and both of my neighbors commented on how cute my outfit was! When they did, I of course made them FEEL the outfit also. There were lots of oooohs and ahhhhhhs. 😉
Now, the top isn’t tight, but it’s not loose or drapy either. Just a nice fit. I did size up to a medium, so I would definitely recommend sizing up at least 1 size. If you want it even roomier, size up 2 sizes in the top.
The leggings fit up high on my waist, which I love. They actually go over my belly button, and I feel like they suck me in a little but, but they aren’t restrictive at all. Still, I felt like they are very flattering. I will say that I had a friend get the grey pants, and she didn’t love them because she felt they were a little bit sheer. I didn’t feel that way at all about the black pants and I highly recommend them! I was surprised at the chevron pattern on them since I didn’t notice it in the online pictures, but I thought it was actually a nice surprise! Also, I have a tendency to get hot, but I was fine in these all night long.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the pants. So I sized up in the top, but I stayed true to size in the pants. Please, pay no attention to the fact that my stomach is so white that it’s pretty much glowing. #lookawayfromthebrightlight
I took this picture so you could see the pattern/texture of the leggings and the ruched detailing on the top. Also notice the wide band at the bottom of the top. All of these details (in addition to the comfort of the pieces), made them both 5 stars for me!
And you know I had to step it up a notch with my blardigan and uggs. I mean, Y’ALL. I’m not sure if I’ve ever been this cozy IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. And I’m sorry, but cutest photobombers ever.
To top it all off, I was also wearing their seamless lounge bra. I’ve tried sooooooooo many bralettes in the past, but I’ve never loved any of them. First of all, most of the ones I’ve tried are lacy, which is itchy! And who wants to be itchy? Others that I’ve tried weren’t lined at all, which is not a good look for me. I need some coverage, ifyouknowwhatimean. This particular bralette is made out of stretchy and comfy fabric, it has lightly padded cups (that are removable if you so choose), AND you actually fasten it in back like a regular bra. I love that you don’t have to pull it over your head! Oh, and the straps are adjustable! I’ve never had a bralette with adjustable straps before, and this is necessary for me because I’m very short from my shoulders to my chest. The fact that I’m able to tighten them up is perfect!
When I ordered it, I planned on only wearing it at home when wanting to keep the girls in check. I’m one of those that doesn’t feel comfortable walking bra-less around the house because the girls have a mind of their own. 🙂 However, this bra gives enough lift and support that I’ve worn it out of the house as well! Now, I realize it won’t work for everybody, but I’m truly happy to have added it to my lingerie drawer. In fact, I’m going to order another one, because I’ve found myself wishing for it on several occasions when it was in the wash. (FYI: when I order the new bra, I’m probably going to pop one of their camis in my cart too….because who can resist a great cami.) Now, just like swimsuits, the little bra pads do tend to fall out when in the washer, but I just pop them back in and it’s no big deal! I like the bra so much that this detail wasn’t a deal breaker for me.
Yep, this is the stuff that dreams are made of.
Tell me you don’t want to wear this outfit every single day for the rest of your life.
I’ve got one more option for y’all today, especially for those that can’t stand wearing pants to bed. #ifeelya
Look at this cute organic dolman tee and shorts set. As you can see by my bed head and no make up, this was me about an hour after waking up on Monday morning.
Now, I will warn you, these shorts are definitely a short short. But I happen to like a short short. 😉 The top is cut generously, so it isn’t fitted at all, but the shorts aren’t quite so generous. I like the proportions though because my middle is my problem area. This is sold as a set (in a cute little travel bag that would also make it perfect for gift giving), so I sized up to a medium in the entire set. I’m glad I did because I like the overall fit.
