Fitting Pretty

Supportive, luxurious, and comfortable—that describes the 24/7 T-Shirt bra. Even better, ThirdLove is committed to helping every woman find her precise bra size for a perfect fit. Imagine getting a professional, accurate bra fitting at home without being prodded by a stranger. ThirdLove’s sizing app turns your phone into a “virtual measuring tape.” Snap a few quick photos and it figures out exactly what size you are, down to the half cup. Most companies don’t sell half size bras because they cost too much to produce. But Heidi Zak founded ThirdLove to make bras that truly fit, so including those in-between sizes was a must. Heidi designs bras that they would love to wear themselves – durable, contouring, and comfy enough for all day. The 24/7 T-Shirt Bra features ultra-thin, conforming memory foam cups, and a printed label instead of a scratchy tag. The double-layered back and hidden elastics smooth your silhouette, and padded closure fastenings won’t dig into your back. The no-slip pleated straps and gold alloy adjusters add a touch of luxury. Up to 80% of women wear the wrong bra size, but you won’t be in that ill-fitted majority. With a bra from ThirdLove, you’ll feel like it was made just for you.

    Good Afternoon, I was given the opportunity to be the "tester" for the ThirdLove 24/7 T shirt bra. It is by far the best fitting bra I have ever worn. It is super comfortable and looks great under all my clothes. I am obsessed with it and I can say I have never been obsessed by a bra before! The 1/2 cup sizing is truly innovative.

    This is what I have been waiting for!! For years I have been having a problem with the top part of the bra cup sticking out because I don't have enough to fill out the cup. I am a 36C. If I buy a 36B I overflow the cup. For years I have joked around with my girlfriends that someone should make a size B 1/2 cup !!!! Comments!!???

  • Heidi

    Love this idea, but am very uncomfortable with the idea of taking the required photos. Can you please find a way to utilize measurements rather than photos so I can purchase your product? Seems like that would also solve the problems that many have raised about not having a smartphone, not having an iPhone, or not having a phone that takes photos.

  • Heidi
    Heidi – Special Guest
    4/29/2015 1:23 PM

    @Lisa the measurements are calculated natively in the app, and the photos are never stored. However, the sizing app is simply a tool you can use if you're unsure of your size. You can still order the size you usually wear -- our bras run true to industry size, but are based on real women's measurements, not fit models, to give a much better fit.

  • nancy

    Main fact I learned from presentation is that a huge percentage of women wear the incorrect bra size. For those of us who can not access and utilize the phone app, it might make sense to go to a department store and actually get fitted by a "foundation expert" prior to ordering the incorrect size again?

  • nancy
    nancy
    4/29/2015 3:35 PM

    Correction, please:

    What I mean to say is..."get fitted by a 'foundation expert' instead of ordering the incorrect size again"

    @nancy our goal is to make better-fitting bras and to make bra shopping more convenient. We use real women's measurements, and not fit models, and we also developed 1/2 cup sizing -- some of the reason women have trouble finding a great fit is because traditional sizing doesn't include in-between sizes! We also offer free returns and exchanges as many times as necessary to get the right size, and we work closely with each individual customer to help determine her size based on her fit concerns. Feel free to get in contact with us via the Grommet customer support team, and we're happy to help you find your perfect fit!

  • Heidi
    Heidi – Special Guest
    4/29/2015 4:53 PM

    @Tresann this bra offers excellent coverage, no matter what the temperature is.

    Regarding 1/2 cup sizes: after analyzing the measurement data we collected from thousands of women, we developed our signature 1/2 cup sizes in A-D cups (32 B1/2, 32 C1/2, 32 D1/2, 34 A1/2, 34 B1/2, 34 C1/2, 36 A1/2, 36 B1/2), because so many women in the A-D range measured in between traditional sizes! When it came to women larger than a D cup, the greater volume of breast tissue meant that there wasn't much of a need for the in-between sizing. We are always analyzing our measurement data in real-time to see if we should develop 1/2 sizing in the D-G range. I will pass your feedback along to our head of design that there is a need for this size!

    WELL HERE'S A NEW ONE. I DON'T WEAR BRAS, HAVE NO IDEA WHAT SIZE I AM, EXCEPT got meaurseed at Nordstroms' once and wa told a 36 b/C or a 38 B/C.

    nw we hget into the real problems. how can i take a pic of myself when i don't wear bras.2nde, i have numerous injuries to nexk and both shoulders, i can barely tolerate a bra strap on left shoulder, so plop those babies into a bra, put on the right strap, hope left stays in place. strapless bras, i can't breath from the compression on the ribs.

    I'm not alone, many women are having similar problems, how does this bra or any bra you manufacture, help with thee restrictions?

ThirdLove

1/2 Cup Sized T-Shirt Bra

Fitting Pretty

Supportive, luxurious, and comfortable—that describes the 24/7 T-Shirt bra. Even better, ThirdLove is committed to helping every woman find her precise bra size for a perfect fit.

Imagine getting a professional, accurate bra fitting at home without being prodded by a stranger. ThirdLove’s sizing app turns your phone into a
“virtual measuring tape.” Snap a few quick photos and it figures out exactly what size you are, down to the half cup.

Most companies don’t sell half size bras because they cost too much to produce. But Heidi Zak founded ThirdLove to make bras that truly fit, so including those in-between sizes was a must. Heidi designs bras that they would love to wear themselves – durable, contouring, and comfy enough for all day.

The 24/7 T-Shirt Bra features ultra-thin, conforming memory foam cups, and a printed label instead of a scratchy tag. The double-layered back and hidden elastics smooth your silhouette, and padded closure fastenings won’t dig into your back. The no-slip pleated straps and gold alloy adjusters add a touch of luxury.

Up to 80% of women wear the wrong bra size, but you won’t be in that ill-fitted majority. With a bra from ThirdLove, you’ll feel like it was made just for you.

It is super comfortable and looks great under all my clothes. I am obsessed with it and I can say I have never been obsessed by a bra before! The 1/2 cup sizing is truly innovative.

If I buy a 36B I overflow the cup. For years I have joked around with my girlfriends that someone should make a size B 1/2 cup !!!! Comments!!???

    Love this idea, but am very uncomfortable with the idea of taking the required photos. Can you please find a way to utilize measurements rather than photos so I can purchase your product? Seems like that would also solve the problems that many have raised about not having a smartphone, not having an iPhone, or not having a phone that takes photos.

  • Heidi
    Heidi – Special Guest
    4/29/2015 1:23 PM

    @Lisa the measurements are calculated natively in the app, and the photos are never stored. However, the sizing app is simply a tool you can use if you're unsure of your size. You can still order the size you usually wear -- our bras run true to industry size, but are based on real women's measurements, not fit models, to give a much better fit.

  • nancy

    4/29/2015 3:32 PM

    Main fact I learned from presentation is that a huge percentage of women wear the incorrect bra size. For those of us who can not access and utilize the phone app, it might make sense to go to a department store and actually get fitted by a "foundation expert" prior to ordering the incorrect size again?

  • nancy
    nancy
    4/29/2015 3:35 PM

    Correction, please:

    What I mean to say is..."get fitted by a 'foundation expert' instead of ordering the incorrect size again"

    Thanks.

  • Heidi

    4/29/2015 4:04 PM

    @nancy our goal is to make better-fitting bras and to make bra shopping more convenient. We use real women's measurements, and not fit models, and we also developed 1/2 cup sizing -- some of the reason women have trouble finding a great fit is because traditional sizing doesn't include in-between sizes! We also offer free returns and exchanges as many times as necessary to get the right size, and we work closely with each individual customer to help determine her size based on her fit concerns. Feel free to get in contact with us via the Grommet customer support team, and we're happy to help you find your perfect fit!

    Sure wish I'd been a tester for this bra. I've hate bras. I've felt constricted in them all my long life. Now I only wear one if it's critical, but I know I would look better in one. I'm going to try it, but I'll send it back in two seconds if it is not what I've always dreamed about. If it is, however, I will tell everyone I know and some that I don't!

  • Heidi

  • Heidi
    Heidi – Special Guest
    4/29/2015 4:53 PM

    @Tresann this bra offers excellent coverage, no matter what the temperature is.

    Regarding 1/2 cup sizes: after analyzing the measurement data we collected from thousands of women, we developed our signature 1/2 cup sizes in A-D cups (32 B1/2, 32 C1/2, 32 D1/2, 34 A1/2, 34 B1/2, 34 C1/2, 36 A1/2, 36 B1/2), because so many women in the A-D range measured in between traditional sizes! When it came to women larger than a D cup, the greater volume of breast tissue meant that there wasn't much of a need for the in-between sizing. We are always analyzing our measurement data in real-time to see if we should develop 1/2 sizing in the D-G range. I will pass your feedback along to our head of design that there is a need for this size!

    @Samantha right now, the largest size we carry in the 24/7 bra is a 38C. We are always working to develop more sizes! Please contact the Grommet customer service team, and they'll put you in touch with us -- we'll add you to a waitlist for your size request.

    I wear a smooth, contoured, tee-shirt, name-brand bra that is lightly padded in a small size. Do I take the app photos wearing the bra or just wearing a tank top?

    @Anne you'll take the photos wearing an underwire bra with no push-up, and you'll put on a tight-fitting tank top over that! If you have any questions or fit concerns, please reach out to The Grommet customer service team, and they'll put you in touch with our fit specialists who can offer you some one-on-one advice.

    @Heidi

    WELL HERE'S A NEW ONE. I DON'T WEAR BRAS, HAVE NO IDEA WHAT SIZE I AM, EXCEPT got meaurseed at Nordstroms' once and wa told a 36 b/C or a 38 B/C.

    nw we hget into the real problems. how can i take a pic of myself when i don't wear bras.2nde, i have numerous injuries to nexk and both shoulders, i can barely tolerate a bra strap on left shoulder, so plop those babies into a bra, put on the right strap, hope left stays in place. strapless bras, i can't breath from the compression on the ribs.

    I'm not alone, many women are having similar problems, how does this bra or any bra you manufacture, help with thee restrictions?

    Hi Elizabeth, from the sound of it, unfortunately ThirdLove may not be the answer. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    I tried to get app for bra fitting and could not find it on my phone. What exactly do I ask for?
