The best ThirdLove bra for every top

When it comes to shopping for a bra that fits correctly, let’s just say that this is not always the most pleasant task on our to-do list. Between wandering through a lingerie store to having our chest measured by a total stranger to then trying on dozens of ill-fitting undergarments, there are plenty of other shopping excursions we would rather take part in. But, when it comes down to it, a bra that fits correctly and looks good is one of the most essential staples in every woman’s wardrobe. So, what’s a girl to do?

In the midst of our struggle with this dilemma, ThirdLove popped up on our radar this month and we took it as a sign. Until a few weeks ago, half of us on Team LC had never used ThirdLove, an online lingerie shop that specializes in helping shoppers find beautiful, perfectly fitting bras for all shapes and sizes. A shopping experience that transforms your computer screen into a virtual measuring tape sounded too good to be true (especially compared to the aforementioned dreaded lingerie store moments). But, much to our pleasant surprise, after browsing ThirdLove’s website, taking the online sizing profile quiz and placing our orders, we are now convinced that our bra shopping experience will be forever changed.

Not only does ThirdLove let you calculate your perfect bra size and fit in less than five minutes with their easy-to-answer quiz, but their bras also fit more comfortably than anything we’ve ever tried before. Did we mention that you can order in ½ cup sizes? Completely genius. And, each bra has beautiful details that makes any outfit feel instantly more special from the inside-out.

The prettiest and most comfy bras from ThirdLove

So today, we’re going to show you which ThirdLove bra styles we fell in love with by walking you through our guide of the best bras to wear with each type of top. From simple strapless to lacy racerback to full coverage, we’ve done the hard work for you by the styles below for a test run. Take a peek, and be sure to take ThirdLove’s quiz at the bottom of the post to find out what style will fit you best…

The Best Bra to Wear with Your Favorite White T-Shirt…

We can confidently say that, without a doubt, ThirdLove makes several of the most comfortable basic t-shirt bras we’ve ever put on our bodies. The 24/7 Lace T-Shirt Bra (shown above in nude) lays perfectly flat under a classic cotton tee, and the lace detailing on it makes it feel more special than your average, basic bra. The 24/7 Classic Wireless Bra is also a great choice if you aren’t crazy about underwire bras but still need more support than a bralette. It’s the perfect happy-medium of comfort and support. The Classic Wireless is still a supportive, molded cup with a sturdy band underneath—just without the wire. We recommend pairing either bra with the Lovely Lace Cheeky in nude.

The Best Bra to Wear with a Basic Button-Down…

Lace Balconette Bra and Undies from ThirdLove

A basic old button-down shirt can make an outfit feel stuffy and, well, buttoned-up, especially if you find yourself wearing one to an office every day. But, when worn over ThirdLove’s 24/7 Lace Balconette Bra, a basic button-down can transform from average to something special in seconds, even if you’re the only who knows what you’re wearing underneath. This bra comes in some of the most beautiful colors besides just nude and black, including aqua-mint and orchid-petal, and it fits comfortably while looking pretty (those two rarely go hand-in-hand when it comes to bras!). If you like matching sets, this bra pairs beautifully with ThirdLove’s Lovely Lace Cheeky in black.

To all of our full chested ladies out there… Your days of struggling to find a bra you can wear with your low-cut blouses are over. And it all starts with ThirdLove’s 24/7 Classic Full Coverage Bra. With straps that are secure and also comfortable, to buttery-soft memory foam cups that are supportive not restricting, this bra was made for bigger-busted ladies who have searched tireless for years to find a properly fitting bra. Still skeptical? Let us just say that one of our editors who wears a size F was near tears of joy when she tried on the full coverage bra and realized that her days of wearing ill-fitting bras were over. This style also comes in a lace version and several fun colors, aside from your basic shades of nude. The straps are also lined with memory foam, which means no strap dig-in and no slippage. It’s the perfect basic full coverage bra to support you through every hour of the day.

The Best Bra to Wear with a Lacy Camisole…

With spring and summer on the horizon, we’ve been stocking our closet full of light, lacy camisoles, summer sundresses and off-the-shoulder tops galore. Finding the right strapless bra to go with these pieces, however, might be the hardest challenge of all. Often times, strapless bras have too much shape in the cups, make your bust look unnatural, and, most annoying of all, slip down as you wear them throughout the day. We don’t know how they did it, but we are happy to report that ThirdLove truly solved our struggles with their 24/7 Classic Strapless Bra. We couldn’t believe how well this style fit considering we ordered it online and couldn’t try it on in a store beforehand. It feels like a second skin, gives our chest a perfect natural cup shape, and stays in place all day, thanks to the silicone elastic at the cup edge of the bra. With lightweight memory foam cups that reform after each wash and no-poke wires, this bra sure will get its fair share of usage from us this summer.

The Best Bra to Wear with Your Coziest Loungewear…

Lacey racerback bra from ThirdLove

While there is a time and a place for practical, functional bras, there’s also something to be said about having one of those “just because” pieces that makes you feel special when you’re just hanging around the house. Something lacy, something delicate, something that was made for your softest loungewear and enjoying breakfast in bed on the weekends… In our opinion, this bra is none other than ThirdLove’s Front Closure Racerback, pictured here in soft-pink. This unique style is one of our favorites. With the racerback silhouette, front closure detail, and feminine lace, it’s a must-have. And we love how the super flattering plunge cups add a bit of natural lift and cleavage to any chest size. While we think this style is perfect for weekend lounging, we have to admit that the lace is too cute not to wear with a strappy summer tank top or flowy maxi dress. We recommend pairing this bra with ThirdLove’s Seamless Thong in naked-1.

One of the best parts about ThirdLove bras is that you can order in their exclusive half cup sizes, which left many of our editors feeling like they finally found a cup size that worked for their chest. If you often feel like you’re in between bra sizes, we highly recommend exploring ThirdLove’s half sizes. And, if you’re worried about your bra not fitting, ThirdLove actually lets you try a bra for 30 days, and if you don’t love it you can send it back.
