Is ThirdLove worth the money? That's the question I've been asking for months as I saw the ads on social media.  Like many women, I can relate to wearing an uncomfortable bras - I have a drawer full of them.  But are ThirdLove bras SO comfortable that they're worth the investment?  I finally have an answer to that question.

Okay, so we've all seen the Facebook ads – they come through my feed on the regular and, last year, I finally decided to give it a shot. When I got the bras, I was in LOVE. No wonder people are raving about these bras. Friends and followers asked me to write a review, but I knew that I had to give them some time before I shared my thoughts and a couple of months later, I'm not as in love with the bras I ordered.

But before we go there, let's start from the beginning.

Bra Shopping Sucks Monkey Butt

I shop for bras once a year.

I don't know how you feel about bra shopping, but I hate it. I'm a coward because I hate getting undressed in dressing rooms (why is the lighting so damn bad???) so I end up buying a ton of bras, taking them home to try them on and return the ones that don't work.

It's a lot of work and I know it could be easier, but where's the fun in that?

Years ago, I was measured as a 36DD and every couple of years I get re-measured and I'm a 36DD. I have a couple of brands that fit well enough and stick with those when I go to replace a few bras.

I never thought anything was wrong with my bras. I saw that episode of Oprah and I thought I was doing well. Yeah, the strap slides down one shoulder every now and then. Sometimes I need to adjust the underwire. And I can feel my bar all day long.

But that's normal, right?

ThirdLove Bras

ThirdLove is a company that promises to make bra shopping easier. No dressing rooms, an accurate Fit Finder quiz, and comfortable bras. After seeing their ads on Facebook for a few months, I took the quiz and learned that I'm a 38D, not a 36DD.

After the quiz, ThirdLove takes you to a page that shows all the bras that will work best for your size and breast type. I loved that the models are all sizes and colors. And I was impressed with the collection. But not so impressed with the price. I live near an outlet mall where the most expensive bra is about $40, you spend less when you buy multiple bras.

I unsubscribed from the emails and moved on.

But now the fact that my bras didn't fit well was all I could think about. I kept going to the restroom at work to adjust the straps. I bought extenders for the back. I was trying everything to make them feel comfortable and nothing worked.

So I took the quiz again and when ThirdLove had a sale, I placed an order.

My ThirdLove Experience

My ThirdLove Order

My First Thought

When I tried each bra on, I was amazed. They are soft and they fit perfectly and I loved them. I didn't even need to adjust the straps or anything. They were perfect. It wasn't like I was wearing a bra. I love them.

A Couple of Months Later

I wore my new bras for a couple of months and today, I sent the plunge bras back to ThirdLove. Yep, after I wore them and after I washed them, I returned them.

They make the return/exchange process very easy.

I have a generous rack and I was falling out of the plunge bras every time I bent over, even when I leaned over slightly to grab something from a drawer, pick something up from the ground, or when doing laundry – I was always falling out of those bras.

But the t-shirt bra – OMG I love it. I love it so much that I exchanged the plunge bras for two more of the 24/7™ Pima Cotton T-Shirt Bras.

More About the 24/7™ Pima Cotton T-Shirt Bra

The following is from the ThirdLove website:

  • Cup sizes A-I, including signature half-cup sizes
  • Ultra-thin memory foam cups form to your body
  • 2-way convertible straps can be worn straight or crisscrossed at the back
  • Gold alloy strap adjusters add a touch of luxury
  • Band elastic has an alluring subtle sheen
  • Foam-padded hook & eye with tagless (scratch-free!) printed label
  • Keyhole detail in front
  • Flexible nylon-coated nickel-free wires
  • Pima cotton/nylon/spandex

What I Love about the 24/7™ Pima Cotton T-Shirt Bra

  • The fabric is so soft, the straps stay up, and it has great support.
  • I don't have that weird gap at the underwire.
  • I'm not constantly adjusting my boobs nor am I falling out of the bra.
  • I can sleep in the bra comfortably and my boobs stay in place.
  • The bra is pretty.
  • I'm not constantly aware that I'm wearing a bra and I don't rip it off the second I get home.

The only thing I don't like is that it only comes in three colors. I love variety and looking at their other bras, I'd love this one in blue, purple, and red.

Would I Recommend ThirdLove?

If you are unhappy with your bras, then check out ThirdLove. The cost is insane to me, but having worn my new bra for a few months, I feel comfortable and supported. I have NEVER had a bra this comfortable and I'm 48 years old. So, maybe this is the cost of a comfortable bra.

I treated myself and I don't regret the investment. I was tempted to try a few other bras from ThirdLove when they go on special again…

But, for now, I'll go to the outlet mall and try on a few 38D bras to see if I have better success than I have in the past.

Can't Afford ThirdLove? No Worries

If you're reading this and thinking “I can't afford to spend $50-$70 for a bra,” no worries. There is a way to find an affordable and comfortable bra without breaking the bank.

I went through my bra drawer and each day I wore a new bra so that I could have a clear understanding of what was and wasn't working for me.

I also purchased a pack of bra extender straps and this improved the comfort of several of my bras, giving them new life. Any bra that didn't work, I donated. In the past, I would toss it back in the drawer as if it'll work on another day – not anymore. The one I'm wearing as I type this is going in the donation pile.

ThirdLove made me appreciate a comfortable bra. I'm looking for…

  • a smooth fit around my breasts (no gaps on the edge)
  • a complete fit beneath my breast (no underboob showing)
  • a comfortable fit if there is underwire; I forget that it's there
  • a comfortable and secure fit on my shoulders
  • no side rolls because of a too tight strap

Basically, I want to be able to comfortable sleep in my bras while also having support during the day.

Is ThirdLove worth the money? That's the question I've been asking for months as I saw the ads on social media.  Like many women, I can relate to wearing an uncomfortable bras - I have a drawer full of them.  But are ThirdLove bras SO comfortable that they're worth the investment?  I finally have an answer to that question.
