An End to the Horrors of Bra Shopping (or Samantha tries out True&Co)

Ladies.  We all know what it’s like going bra shopping. No matter what size you are, all of those Angels plastered on the wall and fluorescent bulbs overhead make it a less than confidence boosting experience. As the mountain of rejects piles up, you wonder if there is any bra out there for  you. The condescending “Are you sure you wouldn’t like to be measured?” from the salesgirl when you hand her your massive pile of ill fitting, back pinching, strap digging, boob jails, is the last straw.

This arduous quest, or some version of it has happened to each and every one of us. Now a company called True & Co has come along to change all that. A sort of fairy godmother for breasts, True & Co uses a totally relaxed quiz (i.e. Does your bra hurt? What hook gets the most love?) to identify your perfect fit. As I’m sure you have noticed there is not much consistency between brands or even styles of bras as far as fit is concerned.  I for one, own bras ranging from A cups to C cups depending on where they were purchased. By finding your ‘true fit’ this website creates a personalized online shop for you, filled with bras, panties, the works. I thought the styles were really nice and there seemed to be a decent variety-ranging from white and lacy to red and mesh to nude and practical.

You then put together your try-on box, and pay a $45 deposit for up to 10 items.  When the box arrives at your door you have 7-days to try on the pieces and decide which ones to keep.  Shipping and return shipping are free so it’s totally risk free!  Something I really like about the whole experience is that I can involve my man in the process.  Normally, at lingerie shops, men are treated like trespassers. But with True & Co he was able to help me choose a few pieces that he will actually be able to see me in before I purchase them which was fun for a change.

I was even thinking it could be a fun Valentine’s Day gift to let your guy pick out a box for you, then have a steamy fashion show, followed by an after party in the top-look…
