So here’s the thing, I’ve never loved my boobs. I’ve never been happy with the size, shape or any of the other boob qualities they’re supposed to have. It’s no surprise then that I have always despised shopping for bras. It’s a necessary evil, yes. But, there is always something so miserable about the process of going to a department store and aimlessly sifting through thousands of bras. Then trying bunches of them on beneath unflattering fluorescent lights only to emerge two hours later with a single, measly and just okay fitting bra.
There’s nothing delightful about this sort of shopping experience. It’s frustrating, awkward and sometimes even painful. Not to mention, for a gal who doesn’t even like her boobs in the first place, there’s nothing I’d rather not do.
So when I heard about True&Co, a new company that curates and ships you boxes of bras custom fitted to your needs, I knew that my life was about to change, well at least in the boob department.
You start by taking a True&Co quiz that asks you all about your bra size, favorite brand, how your cups fit– you know all of the standard things you think about. Then you dive into the #realtalk about if your cups spill over, if your straps dig in and whether or not you get that lovely armpit-muffin top-spill over.
Once you’re done with the quiz, you’re taken to your Personal Shop where True&Co has selected a bunch of bras just for you based on your answers. Then you go ahead and pick three leaving two spots for True&Co to surprise you with their expert pics!
I anxiously awaited for my box arrived and squealed with delight when I saw it waiting for me at my door! I ripped the box open to see my pretty, lacy things, but -of course- not before turning on the ol video cam! What? You thought I’d leave you out of this!!?? No way, sister girl! Check it out!
All in all, I am L.O.V.I.N.G. my new bras! The expert pics were ON POINT and I’ve never in my life had such an easy and painless bra try-on experience. Out of the five bras in my box, I’m keeping four of them. Not only are the bras functional, as in the support and how they keep things in check, but they’re actually beautiful, quality bras from established companies.
I spent a decent amount of time on the phone with my mom today discussing whether or not I could do a little show and tell here on the blog of me wearing my new bras, but decided against (read: Dad said no). That said, all of my girlfriends have received [unsolicited] text message pictures of me in my gorgeous new bras! I’m just that pleased.
Yea, that’s right!
The girl who doesn’t (didn’t?) love her boobs is texting her friends pictures and is legitimately sad about not being able to share with you how awesome look in her new bras! Can you say change of heart!?
True&Co’s process allowed me for the first time in my life feel really, really good about shopping for bras and finding the perfect fit for me–not a Vickie’s model or someone with perfect, perky ta-ta’s–ME. I’ve never, ever felt this way before, but I can’t wait to buy more bras!
To find your perfect fit and get your own True&Co box, visit their website and take the quiz! You’ll pay just a $45 deposit for your first box of 5 bras and you ONLY pay for what you keep! If you don’t like something, print out the label and send it back to ‘em free of charge. Simple as that! Enjoy!
