CARE

Wanna do it right? Hand wash
We know it’s a drag, but the surest way to make your Thistle and Spire last is by hand washing.

1- Soak with a delicate detergent or lingerie wash for a few minutes in the sink, working suds gently into the fabric, and rinse thoroughly.
2- Press against a towel to remove excess water
3- Hang to dry


Ain’t got time for that? Machine wash
We know you’re busy. The next best option is to machine wash in your Thistle and Spire laundry bag.

1- Place intimates in your T&S laundry bag and zip, don’t forget to hook your bras together.
2- Wash on cold.
3- Hang to dry (Heat from the dryer breaks down the elastic and spandex, making them fall apart sooner).

Looking for Love?  How to find your perfect T&S fit

  
The easiest way to find your size is simply by measuring, get started by putting on your best fitting non-padded bra.
  
Bust: Stand up straight and measure loosely around the fullest part of your bust keeping the tape parallel across your back.
Underbust: Just underneath your boobs, measure snugly around your ribcage, keeping the tape parallel across your back.
Waist: At the smallest point of your waist measure loosely keeping the tape parallel across your back.
Hip: At the Fullest part of your hip and butt, measure loosely keeping the tape parallel around the front of your body.

Bra Sizing:

Hey Sister Sister! There's a trick to finding similar bra-sizing with sister sizing. Sister bras have the same bra cup capacity even though they are different sizes. Your girls might be happier with sister sizing than your actual measured size depending on the type of bra and the shape of your breasts.  For more details on sister sizing visit Bratabase.com.

Why can’t I find my size?
We are a tiny company and don't have the capability to make the entire bra size range just yet. A great deal of time and investment goes into perfecting and engineering each and every size. We want to make sure that all sizes fit perfectly when we do expand our size range.

It is our long term goal to grow the size offering. We are working towards that goal, but it's going to take us a little time. Thank you for your patience
  
Why does it take so long to grow your size range?
Our story started when our founder decided to quit her full-time job and take a chance designing her own line of lingerie. She did this without any deep-pocketed investors so she started with a handful of sizes and we've been working to grow that since. Each and every size is an investment when factories have high minimums. We're growing every aspect of the business as fast as we can with the limited resources we have.     

How are Thistle and Spire products made?
In order to provide beautiful and obtainable products we work with a small handful of high quality lingerie factories in China. These factories are all complaint with local health and safety laws to promote healthy working conditions. In addition our Head Designer and Founder personally visits and inspects every factory we work with in order to meet the workers, and evaluate the suitability of the factory work environment. It is very important to us as a company to provide the best product that we can, in addition to providing a safe and comfortable environment for the people who manufacture these garments.

Octo-fabulous

Another beautiful stunning piece from T&S. For reference 34C and I got a Med. Definitely a more comfortable fit for everyday wear.

Great quality and amazing detail

It's well made and beautiful! My only gripe is they didn't have it available in the buxom sizes. I wear a 34DD and I got the medium and it's a little small on the boobs but fits perfectly everywhere else

Love it, but sensitive to texture

I love it! The only downside for me is that I'm really sensitive to clothing textures, and the netting isn't very comfortable. But it is clearly durable and well-made and I'm not worried about it falling apart. And it's gorgeous. And fucking hot. I feel great in it... despite it being a little itchy/abrasive for my sensitivities.

It's ok, but...

I HAD to get this because of the octopus tentacle print. It looks beautiful, it's very much my aesthetic, and you can't find anything like it! Seriously, my apartment is decorated in octopus stuff, and I have now worked at 2 companies that had an octopus logo/were names octopus. Seeing this was fate! And once I got the bralette, I was amazed at the quality and lovely embroidery. It's truly a beautiful piece.

Then, I put it on. I already knew it wouldn't fit right because it has generic S/M/L sizing instead of proper bra sizing, and most bralettes don't fit me properly because of that. Because I bought this assuming it wasn't going to fit properly, I mainly got it for the embroidery, this isn't why I removed a star, but wanted to point this out in the review for anyone else planning to buy. I have a tiny back/shoulders and a larger chest size, 34DD bra. According to the size chart, I got a M. The cup was too small, but otherwise is too large overall. If I sized down, the cup would be ridiculously too small. If I sized up, it would be overall too big but still too small in the cup. So M it is.

Another issue which did remove a whole star is that it's stretchy. WAY too stretchy. All of the bands are a VERY stretchy elastic, but the fabric with the embroidery where my larger bust would need stretch to fit isn't stretchy. The result is that it absolutely doesn't hold anything. I'm spilling out of the non-stretchy cups, as the band and straps stretch out, and I will say it, just…
