Bras, bras, and more bras.
We all know how daunting shopping for bras can be and I’m happy to say I’m still loving the ThirdLove ones I shared with you guys earlier this year. I talked about how easy and carefree the process was—the at home app sizer, the various styles and especially the half sizes! Well, now that I’m pregnant it seems to be even more of a lifesaver.
Trying to pick the right bra is near impossible during pregnancy. Your size will change several times throughout the nine months and there will be days where the thought of even putting one on seems like a challenge. The bra bulge, the itchiness, and don’t get me started on the painful straps.
Once I entered my second trimester, I knew I needed an adjustment. I was so excited to see that ThirdLove added some new styles, including the wireless bra! I have been living in it these days and the size tool helped me decide on the right fit before ordering. The half sizes have been a lifesaver and for anyone—pregnant or not—that has always felt in between a size, this is the perfect solution!
A couple tips when shopping:
Don’t buy the fancy ones! Unlike before, when I chose almost all lace and demi cups this is not the time for accessories. The sensitivity will go back and forth, but having anything touching you that isn’t a soft silk may make your skin crawl. I ordered the wireless bra along with the lace and non lace version of the t shirt bra and have been loving them all!
When in doubt, order up: If you still feel like the in between size isn’t giving you enough room, order up! You will undoubtedly grow into it and if you are like me and avoiding nursing bras for as long as possible this will give you a bit more time.
Experiment with color: Since you will likely be sticking to the basics when it comes to fit and shape, have fun with color! Making yourself feel special and beautiful is still the #1 priority, so try something new. I loved the deep hue of this clay color and it made the everyday bra seem a bit more exciting!
If you haven’t tried the service yet, I can’t recommend it enough. The new neutrals line is so pretty and I have heard from lots of new mommies that they are still loving the brand!
