When it comes to fashion, the hardest thing for me to get right every time is Bra fittings.
When I want to go shopping for new bras [here], I tend to just look at how pretty they are before anything else. I love lace. Well. Who doesn’t? And I do not own any white bras. The only reason being is that I don’t like wearing white bras. Simple. I pulled together a few of my current favourites from ThirdLove (pictured above) and you will notice that there is a bra with white lace - this is the only exception to the rule because it is layered on top of a warm nude tone.
For me, the most common problem that I have is that the back strap ends up riding up. I just want to find the perfect bra and solve all my bra problems – or should I say “Bra-blems”.
I thought that when my back strap started to rise up it was because my bra size was too small and my bra was trying to escape. Apparently that is not the case - it is because my strap is too big. I sometimes would get Quad-Boob too, but there is a solution for that.
The company ThirdLove was launched because they realised the frustration that women had with trying to find the perfect bra. They even created a guide to help you solve all of your bra fitting issues and I am lucky enough to share it with you.
I have quite a broad back and I need quite a small cup size, luckily ThirdLove carries my bra size because there is not a lot of places that do. I don't wear padded bras or bras that have shaping in them. I only wear bras that are lace all over or plain because, like most women, I have one breast that is bigger than the other. So if a cup is moulded, I think it is more noticeable.
When I was younger, I would wear padded bras to enhance what I didn't have. When I grew up I realised that the cup for my smaller breast would look hollow and it was more obvious that they were different sizes. I used to get really upset because of the difference in size, but now I realise that I am not the only one and there is things I can do to give the illusion that they are the same size, but I choose not to. I was once recommend at a bra fitting to wear a "chicken fillet" in one of the cups. But I didn't.
The "Bra-blems" that women face should be easier to solve now and I just love how there is Trouble-Shooting for bras thanks to ThirdLove. If you are interested in purchasing a few for yourself, I have a cheeky wee code for you. Just type in TLNOVBB15 to save yourself 15% on your order with ThirdLove [click here].
