Confession. I am terrible when it comes to replacing my bras and underwear. Not sure if that’s something I should be admitting publicly, but hey we’re all friends here right? I mean it’s not like anyone sees them besides me, so I guess it’s not too surprising that it isn’t always top of mind to add a new bra or pair of panties to my cart when I’m in the middle of an online shopping binge.
Speaking of shopping online… This is probably another reason why it took me so long to go through my underwear drawer. I hate shopping in stores (I have absolutely no patience for it) so 98% of my clothing and accessory buys are the result of a few clicks. Shopping for bras online? Not that easy. In my experience it seems like every brand fits differently (#annoying), plus my size has fluctuated over the years. I definitely don’t have the same body I did in college.
So what’s a girl to do? Suck it up and brave the crowded stores of New York? Or take a chance online and cross my fingers that a bra fits?
Enter ThirdLove, a brand that makes shopping for bras online pretty much painless. Sound too good to be true? I thought so too, but then I took the ThirdLove Fit Finder® Quiz where I was asked a series of very detailed questions about everything from my size and shape, to the bra brands I already own. At the end I found out that I indeed was wearing the correct bra size (34B) and was given a few ThirdLove style recommendations to check out—two of which you can see here!
Still worried about ordering a bra online? Or unsure about your size? Well ThirdLove actually let’s you Try Before You Buy. Yes, you can order one of ThirdLove’s bestselling bras (the 24/7 Classic T-Shirt Bra, 24/7 Classic Full Coverage Bra or 24/7 Classic Push Up) and wear it like normal and after 30 days if you aren’t convinced it’s the right fit, you can send it right back or make an exchange. All you have to do is pay for the initial shipping—returns are free. Amazing right?

So far I’m loving my bras. Both are cute, comfortable and actually fit me correctly. FINALLY. After wearing the same handful of (probably ill-fitting) bras for years, I’m heaving a big sigh of relief adding these new ones into rotation. PS the matching underwear also don’t leave panty lines. 😛
