If you’ve read this blog for a bit, you know I tend to be pretty loyal to my undergarments and their brands.
So, last October when ThirdLove first reached out and asked me to review a couple of their bras, I wasn’t really interested. I mean, I already had a bra brand that I loved. I mean, really loved. However, the range of sizes and 1/2 cup sizes that Third Love offered intrigued me, and I got excited to try their bras!
The bras I’ve recommended previously didn’t go below a B cup, and I knew there were lots of you out there that were disappointed that my recommendation didn’t include A cup sizes. WELL. ThirdLove bras not only include A cup sizes….they also include 1/2 cup sizes! WHAAAAAAAAAAAT? I mean, this is genius, right? If you are one of those people that has pretty much never found a bra that you love, these 1/2 cup size options could be a game changer for you. Per ThirdLove’s site…it turns out that 50% of women sizes A-E fall in between standard cup sizes. I mean, of course that makes sense! If you have ever had a feeling that you were between cup sizes, I bet you are jumping for joy right now! And girls……some of their bras come in 32AA-42G. That’s a pretty impressive range of sizing!
For this collaboration, I was given the opportunity to pick 3 bras to review. I chose the 24/7 Lace Balconette Bra, the Font Closure Lace Racerback , and the 24/7 Classic T-Shirt Bra. I loved 2 out of the 3, but 1 of them didn’t work for me at all.
Before we get to the bra reviews, let’s talk about some of the awesome features of the company!

THIRDLOVE FIT FINDER
If unsure of your bra size, the company has created a series of simple questions in their FIT FINDER. And since 9/10 dentists agree that something like 99.99% of women wear the wrong size bra, this could come in handy for many of you. ???? #sometimesicrackmyselfup
Click HERE to check the Fit Finder out! First, you choose the shape of your breast. And y’all. There are 9 different shapes to choose from (with drawings to help you identify your boobs)! Seriously! Fyi: my boobs are bell shaped. And if “saggy bell” would have been a category, I would have checked that box. ???? They then give you 7 choices of different types of fit issues you may or may not be having. You can choose “none”, or you can choose all that apply (ex. straps digging in, cup overflow, etc)! Other survey questions: what cup type is your style, and what size is your favorite bra. All questions were easy to answer (thanks to the handy dandy illustrations), and the survey took less than a minute to complete!
AND NOW IT’S TIME FOR THE PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Take a look at these pretty bras! But let’s be real, pretty only goes so far. ARE THEY COMFY? DO THEY OFFER ADEQUATE SUPPORT? DO THEY GIVE A NICE SHAPE? These are the hard hitting questions that I wanted answers to. 😉
First Up, the the 24/7 Classic T-Shirt Bra. I introduced this bra to you ladies last October, and it’s been one of 4 bras in regular rotation at my house ever since. For my first post I got a neutral nude, but this time I got the tea rose color for Spring and Summer. When I did the FIT FINDER last year, this is the bra that was recommended for me. I wasn’t so sure, because I thought the cups weren’t going to have enough coverage (and I hate to have any spillage). But guess what….they were right, and I love this bra. The material is soft, stretchy, and feels great against my skin. My favorite features are the molded cups that are nicely rounded and hold their shape, without the use of heavy padding or push up technology. I don’t need MORE, I just like a rounded shape without spillage, and this bra provides that. It also has a pretty accordion straps. If you wear a lot of tank tops over the summer, one of these bras in a pretty color would be great to wear in case part of your strap shows.
In addition to the above t-shirt bra, one of the 4 bras I’ve been wearing for awhile now is the Classic Full Coverage Bra (shape seen on the far left). And I’ve got some really cool news to report. Both the 24/7 t shirt bra and the classic full coverage bra now come in New Naked shades. Until recently, a “nude” bra was pretty much always just a shade of beige. But if you think about it for more than a second, we’re not all beige! This new line does a much better job of matching a range of skin tones, which is awesome! Thank you, ThirdLove!
Okay, on to the next review, the 24/7 Lace Balconette Bra. Let’s talk about the obvious first, this bra is gorgeous. I absolutely adore this mint color, but all of the color choices are so pretty. We’re talking basic black (with nude), scarlet, orchid (lavender), midnight-teal, etc….go HERE to check out the other colors. Now, I don’t wear lace bras under tees and thin sweaters, but I’ll definitely be wearing this under button ups, popovers, and heavier sweaters. For large chested girls, this is an awesome option for a bra that is pretty AND DOES IT’S JOB. You can find the matching undies HERE. Personally, although I loved the bra, I didn’t love the underwear. If not wearing a thong, I like a little more coverage in my underwear. Also, I ordered a small, but I seemed to need a medium. They do have quite a large selection of undies to choose from HERE in different cuts and materials.
And finally, the Front Closure Lace Racerback. This is the bra that just didn’t work for me because of the plunge cups. Nope, plunge cups don’t get the job done for me. I’m thinking this bra will be fantastic for smaller cup sizes. The back is so pretty. They designed it with an adjustable back strap, so you can find your perfect band fit easily (most racer backs don’t let you adjust the band). The super-flattering plunge cups create natural lift and cleavage. According to their site, if you have any of the following problems, this bra should be good for you: if your cup is empty at the bottom, if your band is too low on your body, if the top of the cup is too low for you. Again, very pretty bra, just not for me.
A bra that I didn’t receive (because I pretty much knew it wouldn’t be a good fit for me) is the Contour Plunge Bra, which is new to their line. Still, even though I don’t own it, I think some of you might want to know about it! Click HERE to read an article on the ThirdLove site on why a plunge bra might be for you. It’s supposed to give you lift, without extra padding, which I know many of you might be looking for!
In addition to all of the bras highlighted above, they also have a lace t-shirt bra, a lace full coverage bra, push up and lace push up bras, a strapless bra, and they even have a classic wireless bra (that is supposed to be supportive enough for a D cup)! Here are some of the bras, just click on what you are interested in:
To review, these are the bras I personally own and love.
To close today, I wanted you to see a close up shot to show you that you can’t see where the cups end (I’m wearing the T-Shirt Bra here, but the same goes for the Classic Full Coverage Bra). They both give a nice rounded shape, and tees lays very smoothly over them. I love how both of these bras give coverage (if you know what I mean), but don’t add volume. If you want volume, you can try their push up bras that I’m sure will hoist your girl to attention. That’s not what I’m looking for, I just want a comfortable hug from my bra. ????
A HUGE thank you to ThirdLove for sponsoring this post! As I said before, I’m extremely picky about my undergarments, and I’m so excited (and maybe a little surprised) that 2 Third Love bras have made it in to my rotation. What can I say, I’m a total bra snob. 🙂 If you still have questions, they have a page dedicated to fit issues and solutions that you might find helpful! See y’all back here tomorrow for Friday Favorites.
