can a bra be supportive and sexy?

Hi, babes! A couple of weeks ago I posed a very serious question on my instagram stories: “what is your favorite bra?” I’ve been on a year-long quest for a good bra and had yet to find one that fits my post-baby boobies well, provides the proper support, and makes me feel sexy in my own skin. I received a variety of answers to my question, but the winner by a landslide was ThirdLove.

I’ve heard so many wonderful things about ThirdLove, a few of which really set them apart from other brands. For example, Thirdlove uses real measurements to create their sizes and they even offer half-sizes! Then, as luck would have it, I was given the opportunity to work with ThirdLove. I was so eager to try their new bras that I happily accepted.

 My Thirdlove experience started just like it will for you; I took their Fit Finder quiz to determine my perfect size. Instead of sending in my measurements, I was asked questions like “what is my current size?”, “what is the current brand of bra I was wearing?”, and “how long have I owned my current bra?” Then I was shown diagrams to match the shape of my boob and the way my boobs fit in a bra cup. Yes, it’s a little humbling to pick the picture that matches my post-baby boobies, but I appreciated the sincerity of wanting to get the best picture of me and my breasts.

Once I completed my questionnaire, my perfect size was generated: 32 D 1/2. I wasn’t expecting the “half size,” but it made complete sense because I’ve never really fit perfectly into a D or a DD. Crazy! It also recommended the 24/7 Classic T-Shirt Bra for me and y’all, their T-Shirt Bra is so comfortable, so supportive, and fits like a second layer of skin. In addition to a regular T-Shirt Bra though, I wanted something a bit more fun for summer. After all, we gotta show a little skin in these warm summer months, right?

So, I also tried their Front Closure Lace Racerback Bra. I’ve always been scared to rock a racerback bra since I’m not an A cup, but I decided to give it a go. I was a bit shocked at how much I loved the bra. The cups are just as supportive and provide almost the same amount of coverage as their T-Shirt Bra. The straps are adjustable, making the bra feel as supportive as you’d like, and the lace back is so stinking cute that I couldn’t resist wearing it with a backless shirt.

So this week, I rocked my new Lace Racerback Bra in confidence as I enjoyed some coffee and worked at a local bakery. Thanks to everyone who recommended Thirdlove, too! You guys were so right! Thirdlove bras truly do feel tailored made for your body, your shape, and you personal style! So for those who haven’t tried it yet, what are you waiting for?
