Thirdlove bra review for all my big busted, small frame ladies – video review and pictures included!

Thirdlove bra review for all my big busted, small frame ladies – video review and pictures included!

I am a big busted girl with a small frame. Finding a bra that fits correctly has been my life’s mission!

I could go into my youth and tell you all the hateful bra shopping trips, all the tears over shirts that just wouldn’t fit right because of my big bust and so on and so forth… Not FUN!

The hardest part was when I got pregnant! OH MY GOSH! As if my breasts weren’t already big enough?! I was honestly scared of my own boobs at that point… and praying they would not stay that big. “Why God why!” I think I kept saying.

Thank goodness they did shrink back down. But then they took on a whole new form 🙁 Oh the struggle…

I want to view the twins as the blessing that my husband says they are but in order to do that, I need to find a bra that holds me, that is comfortable and that stays in place! Can I get an Amen?!?!?

I came across Thirdlove one day in a desperate attempt to find “that bra!” I took advantage of their ‘try before you buy’ program and was really impressed!

Here is my video tutorial of the Full Coverage Thirdlove Bra:

What I forgot to mention in my video is AWESOME! You know the bigger the bra and cups the bigger the clasp in the back. I’ve worn a 4 hook clasp before and HATED IT! To big, I feel like I’m in harness. But this bra stays at the 2 hook clasp no matter the size. Thank goodness!

Pictures!!!

Notice how the center part is more in the middle of the cups than sitting across the bottom. Yeah, that made a huge difference!

All the hardware is gold! And notice the mesh between the cups here. Makes for breathable and happy breasts!

In addition to my love for this bra is the straps! Although they do get a bit lager over you shoulders (just for the full coverage bra) they aren’t SO LARGE (like others) that they cant be hidden under tank top straps. LOVED that! And yes, they were very comfortable!

All in all it is a very comfortable and pretty bra and it comes in several different colors!

Getting the right fit

As I said in the video I will be sending this bra back to get a bit of a better fit. I kept spilling out of the front area but other than that it was amazing and still comfortable. However I want the PERFECT bra so I will send it back until that happens!

I will be updating this post when my exchange and new fit comes!

MY FIT

The bra I reviewed and is pictured above is a 34E I am exchanging for a 32F. It was suggested that because I was on the tightest hook that I should go down a strap size and up a cup size. I wanted to go up a cup size and a half but they don’t have that size… YET! The lady said they will someday and put me on a waiting list for one.

Update

Update to come soon! My new fit is already in the mail!!!

The solution to chemical, gluten and cruelty free make-up – Found Here!

The solution to chemical, gluten and cruelty free make-up – Found Here!

It’s no secret that cheap drugstore make-up brands are made with fillers like synthetics and chemicals. That’s why they are so cheap!

However, we cant ignore the truth: The chemicals found inside make-up is hazardous to our skin and our over all health.

Just about anything we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies making their way into our blood stream and workng their way through the rest of our bodies. Spreading the toxins and causing our health to suffer.

Harmful ingredients found in most make-up brands:

Parabens: These are a preservative and typically are on ingredients lists as – propylparaben, metylparaben, ethylparaben, and butylparaben. They’re found in body creams, lotions, shampoos – as well as almost any beauty product that has water added to it. They have been classified as a hormone disrupors and can cause cancer.

Additional disturbing info was found in a study: 20 tumor were dissected and parabens were present in all of them.

We have to be aware of this information! We have to be careful what we are putting on our bodies!

Nano Particles: This is used to make products smooth and soft. It’s a chemical that enters to blood stream but we are unsure of the long term effects as of yet.

Last but not least Petro Chemicals: contain carcinogens which is capable of causing cancer in living tissue.

We can’t ignore these facts any longer! It’s our health, it’s also the health of our young teenager daughters.

We no longer have to compromise our health and beauty thanks to…

Let me tell you a little bit more about our products!

Our Lip Gloss: These are infused with Peppermint EO which can act like a natural lip plumper!

Our Lip Stick: Four amazing shades!

Our Brush Set: Italian brushes made in Italy are of the finest quality. They are labeled for their uses. For example: eye liner, blush, foundation ect…

Our Foundation: There are many shades to choose from. We have what are called cool and warm shades. One of the best ways of finding your shade is to look at the veins on your wrist. If they are green in color you are warm. If they are blue in color you are cool.

Secret to application

The secret is to mist your foundation brush. You can mist it with our misting spray (that smells amazing by the way) dip it into your foundation and apply. They also suggest you apply when you still have a light gloss on your face from your facial lotion. This sets the powder and gives you that flawless look.

Misting Spray: Contains aloe and skin loving essential oils. Use this to set your make up and apply your foundation, blush, bronzer and highlighter.

Eye Liner: If you want a more smokey look apply with slightly damp brush. If you want that crisp look apply with more of a wet brush. You can use the eyeliner for eye brows and to cover gray hair 😉

Multitasker: Can be used an applied much as the eye liner. Its more brown in color for those of you who want softer tones.

You can mix these colors to make your own! Make your own shade of eye shadow, your own shade of foundation (for when you tan). Mix the lip stick with the lip liner. This is customizable. But if you are uncoordinated like me – stick with the colors on hand, they are beautiful and more are coming our way! this is just the beginning of our new make up line!

Because this line is so new there is not a starter kit that contains all the essentials to start. Right now it is individual order until Fall when they are hinting at kit like that will be available.

Thinking of starting this as a biz?! Jump now! This is a new line and people are going to be loving on this brand – they already are! If you just want to take advantage of this new line contact me below!
