ENTREPRENEUR

This lingerie startup surveyed thousands of women to create the best-fitting bra on the market

ThirdLove spent two years dissecting and perfecting every part of the bra — and it paid off.

Each bra boasts soft memory foam padding, supportive — and surprisingly flexible — nylon-coated, nickel-free underwire, and a padded hook-and-eye placket that keeps the bra comfortable all day long.
