Hello, lovelies! We ladies all know what it’s like to put on a well put together outfit in the morning feeling fresh and ready for the day. But once you go through that 8 or more hour work day, you’re extremely uncomfortable by the end of it. What’s the cause of this discomfort? Your bra. Let’s be real, we all have such a bittersweet relationship with them. They support you and may even contribute to an outfit by being that gorgeous little accent. On the other hand, by the end of the day we have had enough of them holding us together for hours and hours. Even though they are supposed to be supportive, we can run into many “bra-blems”.
I’m so excited to bring you this post in effort with ThirdLove. ThirdLove is a company that creates beautifully designed bras for every woman. After looking through their site, I thought the bras were gorgeous and they had such a wide variety to match every body type. They also have a brand new strapless bra that I think you all would love! I definitely recommend you check out what they have to offer and I even have a promo code for you guys! If you enter the code BRABLEMS at checkout, you will receive 15% off your order. What a deal!
So let’s dive into the issues all of us experience from day to day. One extremely common problem that most women face today is wearing an ill fitting bra. Most women will wear a bra that is too small for them. I can guarantee you you’re probably wearing the wrong bra size right now! It’s not only uncomfortable, but it probably isn’t flattering your body in any outfit. However, you can fix this easily! I would recommend going into your nearest store with a lingerie department and getting sized. When I worked at Victoria’s Secret Pink last summer, I learned how to size properly and I promise it only takes a couple of seconds! I do realize some women aren’t totally comfortable with that, so no worries! I have a solution for that as well. ThirdLove actually has a sizing app that allows you to find your correct size right at home. Revolutionary! With this app, you can easily find your size without the need of another person with a measuring tape. You can read more about it on their Philosophy page.
Other very common issues are straps riding up or being too tight on your shoulders. These can also indicate that you aren’t wearing the correct bra size. I actually have a great little list with sketches of how you can fix these problems that might explain it even better than I can. Check it out down below!
I’d love to give you all some other options in terms of bra design and what could work best for your body to create the perfect outfit! Bralettes are a great way to go and really add that little something to your look. However, they are a bit tricky to wear if you have a bigger bust. No worries, I got you covered!
I got this halter style blush lace bralette from a small boutique in the mall and I absolutely adore it! It makes for a perfect accent color for flowy tops like this one. It lets you have a backless, effortless look without showing any unflattering bra straps. The one problem though, my neck always hurts during and after I wear them. So I end up not using them as often as I’d like to. ThirdLove has a gorgeous selection of lace bras that would be just as beautiful as a bralette, check them out here!
If you are one of those ladies who just cannot do the halter style bralettes, try some that have a normal bra shape. It won’t strain your neck and the straps will be gentle on your shoulders. Even though it doesn’t have any underwire, it is still supportive with the adjustable straps. I actually love how it shows through under tops like this and add to the beauty of an outfit. I recently bought this little black one from Irene’s Story and I’m planning on going back to get a couple more colors! I’ve been wearing it constantly because it’s just so comfortable. I noticed ThirdLove has a very similar one on their site that is equally as gorgeous!
Another great way to go is to wear a light, comfortable sports bra. Lately I’ve been loving the ones from Calvin Klein, and I purposefully make them a part of my outfit so they can stand out. Not to mention, the material is SO soft and totally flexible! I wear these to work, around the house, pretty much anywhere. They’re definitely in style right now and Calvin Klein has been killing it with these products lately. You can go into any Calvin Klein store or outlet to purchase them, or even to Urban Outfitters who also sells them.
I had so much fun working with ThirdLove on this post, and don’t forget to use your 15% off code BRABLEMS when buying any products.

I also hope you found these different bra styles helpful and are something you want to try out in the future! Have an amazing day, loves! <3
