Have you ladies heard about Third Love? They are a bra company that is known for their “try before you buy” campaign as well as bras that are supposed to be amazingly comfortable because the materials are awesome and they are a perfect fit! They are also known for their technology, but we will get to that in a second.
I’ve been seeing ads for them on my facebook feed (the ads have also been popping up in my blog header recently!). Maybe you’ve seen them too…
But since I have a bra that I already love, I hadn’t paid much attention to the ads. When they reached out to see if I wanted to give their bras a try, I still wasn’t very interested. Again, I already had a bra that I loved. But then I remembered, the bra I’ve been professing my love for doesn’t come in anything below a B cup. And many of you ladies were always super bummed about that! One lady had even written me saying “Small ta tas need love too!”. Thanks for the laugh, Brittany!
Well, Brittany. You’re in luck! Third Love gives love to the small ta tas too (while not forgetting the large ta tas either)! Bras come in 32AA-40F. That’s a pretty impressive range of sizing! And they even come in half cup sizes! I’ve never seen this before, have y’all? Per Third Love’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 ever had a feeling that you were between cup sizes, I bet you are jumping for joy right now!
Plus, I checked out the site and skimmed through only a small portion of the THOUSANDS of glowing reviews. And I have to say, they were pretty convincing. Anyway, for all of these reasons, I decided to give the program a try as well. And you know what? I’m glad I did. I mean, Glamour called their bra “The most comfortable bra ever”. I pretty much had to try it, right?
So, today I’m talking with Third Love, not just about their amazing bras, but also about their Try Before You Buy program as well as their quick survey and/or app that helps you find the right bra for you! This company is catering to women in so many ways, and I love it.
TRY BEFORE YOU BUY PROGRAM
Let’s start with their Try Before You Buy program.
Readers can return/ exchange/ wash/ wear/ live in the bra for 30 days before paying a dime for it! WHAT? That’s right, you have 30 days to wear it around the house, wear it to work, wear it everywhere you go! If you love the bra and decide to keep it, you will be charged $68 at the end of 30 days. If you decide this bra is not your perfect fit, you can return it, within the 30 day window, and you will not be charged (except for the $2.99 shipping upfront). Updated at 10:30 a.m.: several readers have reported that they were charged $4.99 for shipping this morning. I’ve reached out to Third Love and am waiting to hear back. I will update the post after I receive a response!
And check this out. If a gently used bra gets returned after being worn during their Try Before You Buy program, they wash it and donate it to a great cause! They are working with several charities in California to give women in need a perfectly fitting bra. I love that!
Some important information: *Directly after you place your order there will be a $68 pending charge on your banking statement. It will look like you were charged the full amount for the bra, however that is just a verification of your card on our end and that money was not deducted from your account. You will see that pending charge fall off your statement in the following 1-3 days after you place your order.
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!
THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT!
You can also download the ThirdLove app, where you can size yourself (without the hassle of the in-store experience). All you need is your phone and a mirror. Essentially, it’s a virtual fitting!
From ThirdLove RE: the ThirdLove app: the photos used in the sizing app are never saved (they don’t even remain in your camera roll on your phone). The sizing calculation takes place on the phone and the measurement and size are presented almost instantaneously.
I will say, the app is a little bossy, but I respect bossy. I happy to be fluent in bossy. 😉 It talks to you and tells you exactly where to hold your phone. WHAT A CONCEPT! For those of you that are uncomfortable with the idea of a professional fitting, this is the app for you! It walks you through with pictures and voice directives, and it’s very user friendly! It takes two pictures, and then recommends your size. Click HERE for the app.
Okay……so you either take the survey….or you use the app….or both….or neither….and then you order you bra!
Third Love sent me their best selling t-shirt bra as well as their full coverage bra. I was planning on liking the full coverage better….and although I do like it a lot, I actually preferred the t-shirt bra, which was surprising to me! Full reviews of both bras below!
Here they are. The classic full coverage bra (in plum) on left, 24/7 classic t-shirt bra (in nude) on the right both c/o Third Love. They’re not crazy sexy or anything….but let’s be honest…neither am I. 🙂 They are practical, and they get the job done. And I like that they do so while allowing me to be comfortable.
The 24/7 T-Shirt Bra
This is their most popular bra. The fit is great (score!), it’s very comfortable, and the memory foam makes the shape very natural. I prefer a really rounded cup, and this fits the bill! The bra doesn’t have any bells and whistles (like a pretty lace or anything), but that’s what I prefer! I want a smooth line under tees. And remember, it also comes in 1/2 cup sizes! That’s really going above and beyond to obtain a perfect fit. And I love the pretty pleated straps.
Here it is up close and personal. And not on me. You’re welcome. And as you can see, this is a smaller chested gal, and the girls look GREAT! Sidenote: I want her lipstick and gloss. Click HERE for the bra.
24/7 Classic Full Coverage Bra
And here’s my review of the 24/7 Classic Full Coverage Bra, their most supportive bra. So there are two things I love about this particular bra. First of all, the full coverage cups. I can’t see any spillage ever happening with these babies. And the memory foam again provides coverage, without adding additional volume. I DON’T WANT additional volume. Even the straps are lined with memory foam for heaven’s sake, which means no strap digging in and no slipping straps.
And again, here it is doing it’s thing. This is exactly what I look like in it. 😉
I wanted to show y’all a couple of pictures of me wearing the t-shirt bra with a favorite tee of mine. Click HERE to get details on the outfit. Please notice how even with a thin tee, you don’t see any spillage in the front or any bulges on the side or back. That’s what a good fitting and well made bra will get you!
I wanted a close up shot to show you that you can’t see where the cups end. They also give a nice rounded shape, and the tee lays very smoothly over this bra. The memory foam is what I love most about this bra. It gives coverage (if you know what I mean), but it doesn’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. 😉
Overall, I’m a big fan of the bras AND the company. From the survey questions and the technology used to help you get the perfect fit…to the actual bras. They even have a page dedicated to fit issues and solutions. And you can click HERE to see a page dedicated to Frequently Asked Questions. And y’all, with the try before you buy program, you’ve got nothing to lose. Except for maybe some ill fitting bras. #peace #goodriddance Here are some of their other bras to choose from. Just click on what you are interested in!
A HUGE thank you to Third Love for sponsoring this post! And for making the whole buying a bra experience easy! Now…if jean companies and swimsuit companies would just follow suit, we’d all be very appreciative. 😉
