True & Co: A Review Post


Disclaimer: this is definitely not a sponsored post. (pssh, as if my blog could ever be cool enough for companies to pay me to write about them)

Other disclaimer: this post is about bras, so if you feel weird about that I'd suggest you stop reading right about...now.

Anyone still with me?  Are we good?

Whew, okay, now that we got all that out of the way, can I please tell you about one of my new favorite companies?

It's called True & Co.

Here's the deal: you just hop onto their super user-friendly website, fill out a short but informative survey (I recommend doing this in private and in front of a mirror), and then based on your results they instantly create an entire online store filled with bras just for your size and body type.

You get to pick three bras from this shop that you think you might like to try, and then their experts choose two they think will fit you best.  These last two are surprises.  How fun is that?!?

Then, you pay a $45 completely refundable deposit, and they ship the 5 bras right to your very doorstep:


Once the box arrives, you have 7 glorious days to try them on at your leisure.

Yes, that means you can try them on with all your favorite tops to see how they fit.  You can try them on in the comfort of your very own bedroom.  You can try them on while standing.  You can try them on while sitting.  You can try them on while watching TV.  You can try them on while brushing your teeth.  You can try them on in the morning.  You can try them on at night.  You can- well, you get the point, right?
After you've tried on all the goods and decided which ones you'd like to keep, you simply toss the the rest back into the box, slap on the pre-paid postage return label, and send 'em back.  Easy peasy.

If you don't keep any, they refund you your deposit and the whole experience has been free-ninety-free.

But if you're anything like me, you will find yourself literally cheering as you snap into what is quite possibly the most comfortable piece of undergarment ever created in the history of ever, and you will know that you simply cannot go on living without that bra, so you will choose to keep it.  In which case, they simply refund you the difference between the $45 deposit and the cost of your life-changing new bra.

I absolutely despise bra shopping at the store.  I actually might hate everything about it.  From the girl trying to earn commission by hovering outside my dressing room and attempting to "measure" me for a correct fit (btw, now that I actually own a correctly fitting bra, I can definitively say that she was very, very wrong on her sizing suggestions), to the tiny little awkward hangers that no matter how many times I try I can never get the bras to hang correctly once I've removed them, to the sale bins I'm forced to dig through semi-annually in an effort to get a good deal, to the constant undressing and redressing required to try on multiple bras and sizes within a "6 items or less" dressing room limit.

Not to mention it means I have to drive to a store, publicly select some of my most private undergarments, and carry them over to a sales person in order to ask permission to try them on.*

Umm, no thanks.

Seriously, everything about my experience with True & Co was wonderful.  The customer service is phenomenal - they responded to my inquiry within 24 hours.  My package was easy to track online so I knew just when it would be arriving on my door step.  Returning my unwanted items was a breeze.  And the feedback I provided on why I was returning each item was taken into consideration for my personal online bra shop so that I only have to look at items that will fit my body and my style.

Not to mention, I had the cutest little "shopping buddies" ever because we got to do it all from HOME:

Did I convince you yet?

Well here's the best news of all: if you click on this link before 1/28, you will get $20 to spend at True & Co.

I know that's only a few days away (sorry, apparently I'm a slacker at spreading good news), but it's definitely worth checking it out.  So what are you waiting for?  Go on.  Buy yourself something pretty.  (or in my case, something unbelievably practical and blissfully comfortable...and no, I'm not exaggerating, I really do love my new bra that much)

*never you mind about the fact that I just posted pictures of my potential bra selections on the internet
