Savvy Shopper: The 3 Bras Every Woman Needs

Savvy Shopper: The 3 Bras Every Woman Needs

This post originally appeared on

Ahhh summer… Our favorite season of the year. The beach days, the balmy evenings, the barely-there clothes; what’s not to love? Summer just so happens to be our favorite time of year to shop, thanks to the warm weather that allows us to stock our closets full of flirty summer sundresses, off-the-shoulder blouses, and breezy linen tops. After all, spending our weekends outdoors in the sun just isn’t as fun unless we’re dressed accordingly. That being said, nothing can ruin a perfectly styled ensemble more than a stray bra strap, an ill-fitting undergarment, or a worn out bra (one that should have been retired years ago) peeking out when it shouldn’t be. Which is why we’ve been relying heavily (and we mean heavily) on our favorite ThirdLove bras to get us through the summer season, sans lingerie faux pas.

If you read this post of ours from a few months ago, you’d know that we’re completely obsessed with ThirdLove’s bras and underwear, not to mention their easy-to-use website that lets shoppers take a quick online sizing profile quiz to find out which bra is their perfect fit. Each of us editors have different body types, different chest sizes, and different needs when it comes to the perfect bra. So, we almost couldn’t believe it when each of us found a bra style that fit our unique bodies beautifully. Now that we are experienced ThirdLove shoppers, and with summer underway, we’ve realized that there are three ThirdLove bras that we’ve had on constant rotation. Here’s why we love them and why you need them in your own closet, too…

A Comfortable and Natural-Looking Strapless Bra

Every woman knows that finding a comfortable and supportive strapless bra that you can wear all summer long is absolutely crucial. It can’t be too snug—no one wants themselves popping out of their off-the-shoulder top. But it definitely shouldn’t slip down all day long, leaving you fidgeting and constantly pulling it back up. Thankfully for us, we’ve fallen completely in love with ThirdLove’s 24/7 Classic Strapless Bra, which, simply put, is the most comfortable strapless bra ever. It gives our chest a beautiful, naturally full shape, and the silicone elastic at the edge of the cup helps to keep it in place all day (say hello to no more awkward bra-adjusting!). This bra comes in at the number one spot for the bra you need in your wardrobe this summer. With just one wear of experiencing the lightweight memory foam cups and no-poke wires, we think you’ll agree too!

An Everyday T-Shirt Bra

We think it goes without saying how important it is to find an everyday t-shirt bra not only for summer but for all seasons of the year. Your everyday bra should be comfortable, supportive and smooth, but also have beautiful details that make you feel special underneath your clothes. All of these requirements are satisfied in one fell swoop with ThirdLove’s 24/7 Lace Perfect Coverage Bra, which is one of our editor’s favorite picks. It’s designed with a hybrid foam that is buttery soft and gives chests of all sizes support from the inside-out. The straps are also lined with memory foam, so they won’t dig into your shoulders and they won’t slip. Don’t have a big chest? You will love the 24/7 Classic T-Shirt Bra or the Lace Push-Up Bra as your everyday staple. The best part about these styles is that they come in a gorgeous tea rose hue, which is the perfect bright and bold shade to wear this summer.

A Special Lace Bra

Backless tops, low-cut blouses, breezy lightweight sundresses—these are the things that our summer wardrobes are made of. And nothing complements these show-a-little-skin pieces better than a gorgeous lacy bra. Enter: ThirdLove’s 24/7 Lace Balconette Bra, our third and final favorite bra to invest in this summer, and for good reason. The romantic lace details add a beautiful touch to your low-cut summer dresses and tops, and the buttery-soft foam cups and sultry silhouette create a natural lift and cleavage, giving your chest a beautifully full shape. Worried about what size to order? Get ready for the best news ever… ThirdLove offers exclusive half-cup sizes, which solves so many problems for those of us who have always felt like we were between sizes. We love this 24/7 Lace Balconette Bra in the soft, summery shades of aqua mint and orchid petal.

If you can’t tell by now, we’re completely in love with ThirdLove’s easy to use online shopping system that has allowed each of our editors to find bras that perfectly suit our body type and style, without sacrificing fit or comfort. Think of it as a virtual measuring tape—with a whole lot of options in colors, laces, and fit. Genius!
