During my move to the new apartment and the closet purge that always tends to come with packing up, I had a sad realization. My bra game was pitiful. It was full of options that were purely about function – from the way too well worn classic everyday nude bra to the black pushup, I didn’t own a single piece that made me really feel good when I put it on (or wouldn’t be embarrassing for someone else to see!). So this needed to change, stat.
Enter ThirdLove. They’re changing the game as the complete opposite of the mall bra shopping experience and have created bras for the modern woman with a focus on fit and a huge range of sizes from AA to G (including half sizes!). But best of all? Their bras are gorgeous, with the prettiest details that are perfect for peeking through clothes and are so comfortable that for once, you won’t actually mind wearing a bra all day.
In my efforts to step up my bra game, I found 3 bra options beyond the basics that every lady needs in her wardrobe:
The Functional Upgrade: Everyone owns at least one black bra but is there any reason you reach for ’em other than just because you’re wearing a dark color or your tan bra is in the wash? The plunge neckline of ThirdLove’s Perfect Contour Plunge is your low cut dress or v-neck tee’s best friend and guys… this bra is so comfortable. It gives you a little lift without the padding of a push up making it a solid option for everyday wear and the mesh detail is oh so pretty.
The Peek Through Piece: Have you noticed the trend lately of having a little bit of bra peek through? Whether it’s showing a little lace near your ribcage or pairing a low back top with a lace back option, bras are having a big moment of being seen as an accessory to your outfit instead of simply being hidden underneath. This ThirdLove lace racerback is the perfect piece for peeking through – the detailing on the back is stunning and screams to be seen paired with a cozy scoop back sweater or contrasting against a crisp white button down.
The Pretty Little Thing: In the intimates world there tends to be two very different sides of the spectrum for your bra options: over the top sexy (and sometimes even cringe-worthy) or a total snoozefest (I’m looking at you, nude wireless bras). ThirdLove’s 24/7 Lace Balconette is the unicorn of the bra world – it’s that pretty little thing that you still reach for when it’s date night, or you just need a little confidence boost (I swear I get a little pep in my step every time I wear this!), but it’s also comfortable enough for all day wear. I can’t say I’ve ever owned a red bra but I couldn’t resist the pretty lace and romantic balconette cup style and love having just a little bit of the lace peek through with a classic silk button down.
If you’re in the market for a new bra (or just looking for an excuse to treat yourself!), I can’t recommend ThirdLove enough! I’m already thinking about grabbing their Strappy Demi Bra next – what’s your favorite bra on their site?
