THIRDLOVE BRAS REVIEW

THIRDLOVE BRAS REVIEW

 

I’m going to start out this post with a bit confession…

(Hope you don’t judge me!)

One thing I’m super lazy about buying are bras. I’ve heard that you’re technically supposed to replace them every 6 months to a year. However, that has not been the case for me at all.

I couldn’t tell you when I last got the Victoria’s Secret Pink T-shirt bras that I normally wear. As of late though, my old bras were getting more and more uncomfortable so I knew it was time to get some new ones. 

However, this time rather than going to VS, I decided to take my sister’s suggestion and try ThirdLove. I’ve heard all about their fit quiz so I decided it was worth a shot.

Sharing a peek of what the Fit Finder quiz is like plus my results below!

 
 
 

In the past I had worn either a 34A or 32B from Victoria’s Secret, but after going through the quiz process they recommend I go with 32B. According to the quiz, a 34A and 32B have the same cup volume, but the band is smaller on the 32B. This recommendation was totally surprising since I had often gone between these sizes in the past at Victoria’s Secret.

The Fit Finder quiz recommend that I try their 24/7 Classic T-Shirt bra (which I feel like they must recommend to everyone that takes the quiz) plus three other styles. Out of their recommendations, the 24/7 Classic T-Shirt bra was the only one I tried. However, I did order a few other styles they didn’t directly recommend because I thought they looked cute. Overall, I found the fit quiz most helpful for deciding which size to buy, but less helpful for deciding what styles to buy.

Spoiler alert…when it comes to bras I’m pretty boring and only wear T-shirt or bra-lettes that are nude or white. If it can’t be worn with literally everything I own, I won’t buy it. I’m too lazy to deal with different colored bras and make sure it won’t through whatever top or blouse I decided to wear. 


Here’s what I ordered…

  • 24/7 Cotton T-Shirt Bra in Sea Salt - Size 32B

  • 24/7 Seamless Stripe Wireless Bra in Taupe - Size 32B

  • 24/7 Classic T-Shirt Bra in Taupe - Size 32B

  • 24/7 Classic Strapless Bra in Taupe - Size 32B

 

WHAT I DECIDED TO KEEP

What I loved…

  • Super cute style - I thought this style was super fun! As someone who’s pretty boring when it comes to bras, the cut-out detail was a low-key way for me to spice things up!  

  • Cups fit properly - Compared to the Classic T-shirt bra (more on that below), the cups of this bra fit my breasts much better. Nothing was spilling out or felt uncomfortable. 

  • Comfortable - When I go shopping for bras, my ideal one feels like I’m not wearing one! After having worn tons of bras from VS with underwire, it’s nice to get a break from underwire but still feel supported. 

Verdict: Buy!

What I loved…

  • Wireless - As I mentioned above, I’ve really been looking forward to taking a break from bras with underwire, so I was excited to try out this bra! Just as I hoped - it’s super comfortable! You almost don’t notice that you’re wearing it. Even though there’s no underwire it still felt supportive because the band it’s pretty substantial.

Verdict: Buy!  

 

WHAT I RETURNED

What could have been better…

  • Band felt super tight - I know it’s been a while since I’ve invested in a bra, which was part of the reason the band felt tight. However, it felt much tighter than both of the bras I decided to keep. 

  • Uncomfortable - The cups of this bra didn’t seem to fit me as I expected. Personally, part of breast seemed to be spilling out on either side, which is hilarious because as a pear-shaped lady I’m pretty flat and I can’t say I’ve ever encountered this issue in my life!



Verdict: Don’t buy!

 

ThirdLove 24/7 Classic Strapless Bra in Taupe - Size 32B

What I loved…

  • Super comfortable - The cups of this bra fit me well! While the band was snug, it didn’t feel as tight as the 24/7 Classic T-shirt Bra. Honestly, the only reason I returned it was because I don’t have the budget for it at the moment since I ended up keeping the other two bras. Putting it on my list for future purchase though! (Which I will inevitably need to purchase soon since I’ve had my strapless bra since the 8th grade…) 


Verdict: Buy!

 

Has anyone else tried ThirdLove? What did you think? I’m also curious if there are any other bra brands you all are loving right now? I’ve also been debating about trying Lively and Harper Wilde.
