So I want to preface this post with the statement that my running and health blog isn’t turning into a fashion blog. However funny that would be if I started posting “outfit of the day” or #ootd posts, it’s not the path I’m on! But just lately I’m taking a little more care in my appearance (or trying to), which is part of a healthy lifestyle!
I don’t even remember where I stumbled upon a mention of True & Co, but it sounded interesting. They promise to help women find the best fit in bras without relying purely on a measuring tape. You take a pretty comprehensive fit quiz, answering all kinds of questions about how straps, cups, underwires, etc. on your existing bras fit. They also ask you what size/brand your favorite bra currently is. I had a hard time answering that question, because I wouldn’t say I had a favorite bra, but I had bras. 🙂
So I filled out the quiz, submit my info and they presented me with a bunch of options they thought would solve my fit problems. I could pick 3 to put in my home try-on box and the fit stylist assigned to me would pick out two more. Then they would ship me the box with 5 bras, I can try them on and choose which ones I want to keep. Or send them all back.
Oh… and get this, home try-on is FREE right now. I have no idea if that’s going to last forever, but it’s a pretty great price for right now!
When the box arrives you have 5 days to try on, fill out the feedback form on the website and get your return items in the mail in the enclosed envelope.
Since I have a hefty dose of modesty, I’m not modeling my items like I did with Stitch Fix posts!
The picks came enclosed with a card that gave you tips on making sure the bra was adjusted to fit as best possible. They recommend that you start wearing new bras on the loosest hooks. That way if the bra stretches out over time, you have the tighter hooks to move to. If you immediately start on the tightest hooks, you have nowhere to go when it stretches!
While the home try-on service all seemed to be regular bras, they do sell other lingerie items and sports bras. I think it would be cool to expand their fit service to sports bras, so you can specify what kind of sports you are doing, take a look at fit problems kind of like the regular service and then get a whole collection of recommendations of sports bras! And then a home try-on box! (Naturally, no trial run and then return, that would be weird!)
I did end up purchasing some of the bras from my box. None of this was sponsored, True & Co is just something I discovered and paid for on my own and thought I’d share it with you guys! If you sign up and find something you like, hooray!
