Sharing Bra-blems with ThirdLove

Bunching, pinching and poking - just a few of the common issues we all suffer when it comes to to putting on a dreaded bra. For something we wear every day, these contraptions have garnered a pretty bad reputation, with many of us counting down the hours until we can come home after a long day of work or school and whip off our bra to free the mammaries.

Bras have become a nuisance, something we have to wear but don't necessarily want to. They're uncomfortable and the only ones that do provide a bit of respite aren't usually the most attractive of the bunch. But what if that didn't have to be the case? What if we had the chance to make friends with our intimates again and banish these everyday 'bra-blems' forever? Luckily, I was recently introduced to San Francisco based lingerie company ThirdLove and thought it was a great idea to offer you some easy solutions that will help you fall in love with wearing bras again. ThirdLove is a company that specialises in making great, comfortable bras!

ThirdLove are a company dedicated to providing women with bras that make them look and feel good. Style and comfort run hand in hand with this brand, who, using their own patented technology, let you find your perfect bra size at home, meaning no awkward measuring or dressing room moments required. One of the main things that drew me to ThirdLove was their dedication to empowering women, making them feel great in garments that more often than not create big insecurities for a large majority of us. Underwear can be an awkward topic but with the help of their handy guides and their iPhone app, ThirdLove are able to cater to the diversity and individuality of women everywhere.

For many of us who have been wearing bras for years, how to find one and put one on might seem like common knowledge. However, if you're struggling with some of the everyday, uncomfortable 'bra-blems', it might be time for a refresh. ThirdLove have kindly allowed me to share with you simple ways to fix your relationship with your underwear in the form of an easy to follow visual guide. So sit back and prepare to learn to love your bra again.

So the basics are easy enough, right? Next up, we're going to tackle common fit issues and easy solutions.

Straps are definitely one of my most common bra-blems- they're always either slipping or digging in to my shoulders. After using this handy guide, I will be looking into exploring different band sizes and bra styles to try find a solution to my discomfort.

Despite wearing a bra for years (and thus obviously thinking I'm an expert!), I've never thought about changing the cup size when changing the band size. Now I don't have to settle for a solution to one problem whilst accentuating another- they can all be fixed!

The easiest way to check if you've got the right size band is to see if you can slip two fingers underneath the back of the band- if you can, then you most likely have!

Above are some tips on how to deal with cups that are two small, causing discomfort. However, if you're like me and sometimes have to deal with a bit of gapping in the cups, take a look below for some solutions better suited for you.

Hopefully now, thanks to ThirdLove's  handy guides, you're on your way to loving your bras again! Take a look at their website to see their wonderful selection of underwear in the most beautiful selection of elegant pastels and everyday monochrome. My personal favourite is the Lace Balconette Bra- it's a perfect example of ThirdLove's dedication to combining style and comfort in their products, exhibiting dainty lace detailing and memory foam cups.
