There you are, scrolling through Facebook, when a promoted product catches your eye. It looks interesting, like something you might use. The splashy video, the bright photos, this could be exactly what you’re looking for! But do you buy it? After all, this is Facebook. Any company with two nickels to rub together can buy an ad on social. That’s where I come in. I buy the hot products on social media so you don’t have to, and answer the question, “Do they really do what they claim?”
Meet I Saw It On Social.
Third Love lingerie has ads on every.single.social.platform. They’re on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. They claim that they’re here to save us from Victoria’s Secret, with a more comfortable, better-fitting bra. Frankly, I was skeptical. I’ve heard this elevator pitch before. But Third Love does something most other bra retailer don’t, they let you try their product before you buy it.
I was intrigued by their Fit Finder quiz which goes beyond band and cup size to ask how your breasts are situated on your body, and what fit problems you’ve had in the past. This was extremely helpful since my breasts sit wide on my rib cage, an issue Third Love calls East-West. It can make it difficult to find a bra that doesn’t gape. So it was fantastic to finally have a bra-maker acknowledge this issue.
To try the bras before you buy them, you choose three from their collection and send back the ones you don’t want. I chose their classic t-shirt bra, their lace balconet bra, and their very cool lace-racerback bra. I ended up loving the lace-racerback, which has smooth cups and the coolest, sexiest open back. The lace balconet is comfortable, but lace cups aren’t a good complement to my wardrobe So I would skip that next time. But my favorite bra turned out to be the very basic t-shirt bra.
The t-shirt bra has pleated straps, so they don’t dig into your shoulders. The cups are made of memory foam, so they’re seriously comfortable. And unlike most bras, the underwire isn’t made of nickel, so it doesn’t poke and jab. I wore this bra when I traveled to London, and I had it on for almost 30-hours on the day we arrive. It didn’t pinch or hurt at all. If that isn’t a ringing endorsement, I don’t know what is.
The Third Love “nude” bras come in a selection of flesh-toned colors. They also run in sizes A-G, as well as half-sizes. This was great for me because I’m almost a C-cup, so B-and-a-half is my perfect size.
As I mentioned above this is not in any way shape or form a sponsored post. I bought the product, tried the product, and was naturally converted to the product. (I just received my second set of bras yesterday.) I think these bras are fantastic, though a tad pricey at $68 per bra. But if you’ve been seeing them non-stop in your social feed or blogroll, know that they do actually live up to the hype.
