I’ve officially partnered up with ThirdLove on the blog 2 times over the past year. When they reached out again I was hesitant (because I felt like most of you were already familiar with the brand after my other posts), but all they really wanted me to do was introduce you ladies to some of their new color options. I truly love their bras (I wouldn’t talk about them over and over again if I didn’t), so letting y’all know about the new colors seemed like fun!
I’m typically a fan of neutral bras…and if I had to choose 1 color to wear for the rest of my life, I would definitely choose a neutral color. HOWEVER, they’ve got some gorgeous colors for summer that are perfect for those tank tops where your bra might peek out a bit.
Each time I write a ThirdLove post, they send me some bras, so I’ve developed quite the collection over the last year. I’ve tried several different styles, but my favorites continue to be the 24/7 Classic T-Shirt bra and the 24/7 Classic Full Coverage bra. I love them both and know many of you are now devoted fans as well! Oh, I also love the the Lace Balconette Bra (which I have in both black and mint).
First up, my two favorites: the 24/7 T-Shirt Bra and the 24/7 Full Coverage Bra. Although I have both of them in neutral tones, I also love the options these gorgeous colors offer!
The T-Shirt bra is the “tea rose” bra featured on the top left. 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.
The Full Coverage bra is in the “deep orchid” color on the bottom right. This one has the memory foam cups too, and the straps have memory foam in them also! WHAT A CONCEPT! If you have issues with straps dragging into your shoulders, this bra could be your answer! It also creates a nice rounded shape (with no spillage). The straps are a little too industrial to want them to peek out of a tank top, but I really love this bra and the comfort and support it offers.
This time they also sent me the Lace Balconette Bra in black. With matching undies.
Chris would like to personally thank them for doing so. Because OOH LA LA. 😉
I don’t wear lace bras with t-shirts, but there are some shirts that I am willing to wear a lace bra with. And listen, although most of my bras are purely functional, I do love to have some pretty ones to choose from as well.
Black is always sassy, but I also love the other color options in this particular bra. Gorgeous! Just click on the color that you are interested in.
None of their other bras that I’ve tried have worked well for me because my boobs are too big and too real to not have full coverage and be fully supported. Ha! But as you are about to see, I have reviews of a couple of their other bras by my sister and a friend. I mean, I think we all know that all boobs should be treated (and supported) differently.
My sister, who has a smaller chest (let’s be honest…she has a smaller EVERYTHING) 😉 , absolutely loves the Classic Push Up bra. Here’s what she has to say: “Shopping for bras is my absolute least favorite thing to do. I hate going into the store, having the salesperson invite herself into my dressing room with her tape measure, and then trying to sell me some fancy schmancy fuschia bra that I will never wear. ThirdLove has a fit finder that asks you several questions about your boobies – including shape. For reference – I’m a 32B and mine fall under the “Athletic” category (sorry, Dad). I’ve always had problems with cup gaping. There’s just not enough to fill up the cups (womp, womp). I took the quiz and the fit finder recommended the Classic Push Up. Y’all…they nailed it. This bra is perfect for me! It has just the right amount of push up and guess what? No gaping! In fact, for the first time in my life, I actually have cleavage. ???? I couldn’t believe it. I’m going to order this bra in every color! It’s super comfortable but it’s also pretty! The straps are pleated and SO cute and girly.”
And one of my friends (she has a fabulous pair of after market boobs – really, they’re fabulous) loves her Lace Racerback. I actually gave her mine because the cups weren’t enough full coverage for me, and she loves it! She says the cups are soft and the fit is great! You can adjust the fit from the back, and it’s a front closure. She did say that the back is a little bit itchy, but she doesn’t care because it’s so pretty. This bra is a great alternative to the typical bralette that doesn’t offer any support.
Now, a quick review for those of you that are hearing of this brand for the first time…
The bras I’ve recommended previously (from other retailers) didn’t go below a B cup, and 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!
Now, I feel like I need to mention, I have received some blog comments and/or e-mails from readers reporting difficulties dealing with customer service (if you had to return or exchange a bra). Well, here’s the deal as I understand it. Due to ThirdLove’s presence on social media and because of their popularity with bloggers, they were experiencing some growing pains (because of so much interest)! And of course because their bras truly are awesome. 😉 I’ve been assured that if you leave a comment on this blog post (if you have any trouble at all, and hopefully you won’t), a representative will be monitoring the post and will get back to you! That being said, I’ve also had readers who have had very positive experiences with the company, so I’m hopeful that all communication issues have been fixed!
A HUGE thank you to ThirdLove for sponsoring this post! As I’ve said a couple of times before, I’m extremely picky about my undergarments, and I’m so excited that these Third Love bras have made it in to my rotation. What can I say, I’m a total bra snob. ????
Here are just some of their bras. If you want to check one of them out, just click on the pic!
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.
