As a collector of all things heart shaped, I love Valentine’s Day! Fortunately, Jeff helps me celebrate and we usually go out for a nice dinner. In fact, last year there was a blizzard, but Jeff and I got into his 4Runner with four wheel drive and headed out to a restaurant a few miles away. We were about the only people on the road, but we did it!
I haven’t planned my outfit and makeup for this year’s Valentine’s Day yet, but I do know what lingerie I’ll be wearing! A couple of months ago, while I was looking at Facebook, I saw an ad for True & Co., a lingerie company with gorgeous intimate apparel. The FB ad intrigued me enough to go to their website, and they have a Five Minute Fit Quiz that I took to help me find the True & Co. styles that would suit me best and which sizes I should order. Such a great idea to help you zero in on what will really fit! In addition to the useful information, taking the quiz gave me a 10% discount. Much to my surprise, a few days later I received an email asking me if I’d like to try out their lingerie for review. I was all over that!
I looked through their extensive online catalog, and I requested an unpadded bra and let True & Co. select for me based on my Five Minute Fit Quiz. A few days later, I received a box with my new lingerie, nicely packaged.
I received a beautiful black lace balconette style bra, Gramercy, with a soft, flesh tone lining that makes the black lace stand out. They sent along the black lace Union hipster panty that goes very well with the bra as a set.
My size often varies with the style, and the folks at True & Co suggested 36C for the Gramercy bra and medium for the panty, and both fit perfectly. The balconette style, a full cup with an uplifting seam and wide set straps, is perfect for wide or lower cut necklines and special occasions. I think it’s the most elegant of bra styles, perfect for Valentine’s Day.
I have purchased lace bras from other brands in the past, and the lace was so scratchy I haven’t been able to wear them. Not so True & Co. The lace is so soft, it is heaven to wear! I love the detailing too. The straps are attached at the back with double-strapping that’s so pretty. And I love the gold hardware, so luxe. The panty has a seam down that back that’s figure enhancing and flattering. I love this lingerie, and I know Jeff will too 😉
True & Co. included a catalog with my order, and I’m blown away by the variety in their offerings.
Everything from everyday lingerie to wear with T-shirts and jeans to special occasion lingerie and even what I’d describe as “fantasy” lingerie – intimate apparel’s answer to Detroit’s concept cars, if you will – made with unusual straps and cut-outs, modern-looking and just fabulous! They have strapless bras and a “shaping slip” with adjustable straps that would be a terrific solution for skin-baring gowns and cocktail dresses. Lots of different colors, fabrics and styles to choose from. They also have a good selection of great-looking pajamas.
Where True & Co. really excels is in shaping, fit and finish. Laser-cut panty edges so there’s never VPL, bras constructed to ban back bulge, stretchy fabric to prevent bra lines, seamless front closure bras for a smooth back and a beautiful look.
Plus True & Co., with their mission to help women choose the best fitting bras for their particular size and shape, flags bras that suit certain sizes best. They make their size/style recommendations in the online catalog, the paper catalog and even on the phone app. Sizes range from 32-38 bandwidth and A-E cups.
True & Co. is eager to spread the word. To that end, they’re hitting the road in their brand new True & Co. Try-On truck to visit some of the U.S.’s major cities and areas including LA, Orange County, San Diego, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Chicago, Washington, D.C., New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Boston. The home-inspired truck with nice dressing rooms will give women the chance to visit and try on the lingerie and learn how to choose the right bra and get a good fit. The first stop on January 12 was in San Francisco, and the truck will be heading from the West to East coasts over the course of the year. To get more info about when the Try-On Truck will be in your area and to make an appointment, click here.
I’m incredibly impressed with my new lingerie from True & Co., and I urge you to visit their website to see the gorgeous offerings. I plan to visit the Try-On Truck when it comes to Boston. Hope you’ll check ’em out when they come to your area! And if you’re considering a purchase now, you can get an extra 15% off sitewide on orders above $125 with code Heart15.
