Thirdlove innovated a fuller range that acknowledged the variety of women's bodies, including half-cup sizes that allowed for an even greater level of precise measurement.
FOR MOST women, shopping for a bra can be an ordeal, to say the least, a horrific experience on par with shopping for bikinis and just as bad as shopping for jeans.
