Taking You Behind-the-Scenes at ThirdLove

Taking You Behind-the-Scenes at ThirdLove

I've worked at ThirdLove for about seven months now (!!) and figured it was about time I featured ThirdLove bras here, since they're actually my favorite.

I'm someone who never used to have a favorite bra, or even a favorite bra brand. Bra shopping was something that I had to do — not something I ever looked forward to or got excited about. In high school, there was only one option: Victoria's Secret. As I got older, I looked to Nordstrom and other department stores for bras, but felt uncomfortable surrounded by pushy salespeople and felt like, most of the time, I bought just something to get out of there (not because I actually loved it or it felt right). To be honest, I don't know that I knew what a comfortable bra felt like — I never took the time to care or think much about my bras. They got the job done, and there was no reason for me to think about it any further.

When I started working at ThirdLove, I realized just how ridiculous that mentality is (and how little women actually know about the bras they're wearing). Your bra is something you wear EVERY day — think about how much time and energy we put into making sure our clothes and shoes are fashionable and comfortable (which we'll wear maybe once a week, or even less frequently). Your bra is something you wear every day — it's always there for you. Shouldn't it be the most comfortable thing in your wardrobe and make you feel more confident than anything else you own?

I've also learned that I'm a half-cup size, which is something unique to ThirdLove. I used to wear 34C's and feel like they were a little too tight, and try out 34D's but feel like I had too much room — I'm now a ThirdLove 34 C1/2 and it fits just right (I had my Goldilocks moment!). And, I've learned the importance of rotating between many bras to extend the lifetime of each — I used to just wear one bra over and over (so gross!) and now I've built up a wardrobe of five or so that I love equally. All of the bras and underwear in today's blog post are from ThirdLove's new summer collection, and I've linked to each below each photo so you can shop that individual style!
