I’ve always been skeptical of online bra shopping – considering how much work I do in real dressing rooms to find a well-fitting bra, I don’t expect to find anything good online. The whole, “mail it back if it doesn’t work” business doesn’t appeal to me. (I’m not sure why, it’s less of a pain than driving to my nearest high-end lingerie shop).
I saw the ads for ThirdLove and on a whim decided to give it a whirl. Followed the instructions, and yes – the bra I got fits very nicely, and is very comfortable. It’s a great everyday, t-shirt bra. I will probably get at least one more – comfort and invisibility rule.
But the serious uplift I’m used to from what my husband refers to as the British Battle Bras wasn’t quite there. And it’s *so* soft, and *so* comfy… it feels properly broken in. So I’m not sure how long it’s going to last. It was $68… I want it to last. (Of course the BBBs aren’t nearly as comfy).
I’m not quite sure why we’re dividing up into comfy bras and gorgeous bras again – can’t we do both? I don’t understand the push for hot pink and green lingerie, at least not as the norm. People who are buying these must live in much colder climates than mine – most of my clothing has at least some translucency to it.
I’m not normally a reviewer-of-items, but in this case I wanted to let you know that the bra in question is *just* as comfy as the ads say it is. (Full coverage t-shirt bra, with the padded straps).
