Virtual Isn't As Good As Real

There's a lingerie company called Third Love.  They seem to only manufacture and sell bras, camisoles, and panties.  If you use Firefox, the little pull-down boxes to choose product and sizes didn't work.  It was OK on other browsers.

On some bras, you can change the basic colour and the trim colour as you choose.

There's a chat with a "fit specialist" that I didn't try.

I'm not sure their styles are what I'd be comfortable in.  It's hard for me to imagine how the bras would sit with forms, and the camis look like they're moulded but I don't really think that's the case; I think it's just the picture. I can't tell how much or little padding there is in the bras.

So why am I linking to this site?  They have an iPhone app to do a "virtual bra fitting."  You put on a tank top, take a couple of pictures and it figures out your size.

Not having an iPhone, I can't tell you how well it works.  If any of you ladies would like to give it a try, I'd love to know what you think.


  1. I think here you really show the value of shopping in person! I know some ladies find it impossible to shop for themselves in person but it does seem to be the only way to get exactly what you want in a good fit. I have even bought two bras from the same manufacturer in the same size, one is a nice comfortable fit the other is just "wrong"

  2. Forget the virtual
    Nothing like the real thing

  3. I saw on note on their Website, to follow their Blog "for the lingerie obsessed " That would be me... Julie


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
