Kaitlyn W. discovered Trusst through her husband. She noticed that he had something engineering-focused on his computer screen, and upon closer look, she realized that it was actually a bra - and not just any bra, the Trusst engineered technology. As a bunch of tech nerds, we were thrilled to hear this anecdote! We are even more thrilled that she ended up ordering a few bras and that she loves them. We really couldn’t ask for anything more.

What does beauty mean to you?
Beauty is the confidence by which we choose to love and to be loved. The vulnerability and trust required by love can be scary. To me, beauty is the feeling of empowerment that you get when you choose to brave the ambiguity of relationships—both with others and with yourself—because the act of giving and receiving love is the best part of life.
What does being comfortable mean to you and your life?
Even when my life is chaotic, I am most comfortable when I am around the people that care about me. The security of knowing that someone is looking out for me can create comfort in almost any situation. In my life, I can find comfort when my husband keeps me grounded in the here-and-now during rush hour traffic, when my friends squash my stress with heated lunchtime discussions, or when I find some time to myself to work on my hobbies and passions.
How did you discover Trusst?
When I first stumbled onto the Trusst website, I thought my husband had left one of his engineering research websites open. 3D printing techniques? Physics? Bridge design? When I realized that these approaches were describing technology for a bra, I was hooked. Needless to say, my husband approved of the Trusst design, too.
What is your favorite thing about Trusst and/or the products?
Before I discovered Trusst, I was stuck with bras focused on minimizing and hiding my natural figure. For years, I had been told that I would need a breast reduction if I ever wanted to fit into traditional-sized clothing. Now that I have discovered Trusst, I am proud to take back ownership of my confidence with bras that enhance, emphasize, and empower my authentic, natural self. I do not feel ashamed by my curves, I no longer need to hide or minimize parts of my body, and I do not have to worry about back pain or fatigue preventing me from spending time on my passions and hobbies.
What do you do on a daily basis? What builds your confidence?
Cooking in the kitchen is my happy place. I love trying new foods, cuisines, or techniques. Even though some of my creations are destined to fail, all of my experiments lead me to more ideas about what to try next. Through the hours that I spend in my closet-sized kitchen, I have learned how to build flavor profiles, how to forgive myself for ill-advised decisions, and how to actually transform an idea in my head into a delicious meal.
Why did you choose this spot for your photograph? What does it mean for your life/lifestyle and you?
When I needed a professional picture for my final semester of graduate business school, I knew that I did not want to look like a stock image. I chose the brick wall of my house as a backdrop for a few key reasons: (1) I did not see any portraits with similar settings in my professional network, (2) I wanted to show that I approached the world differently, and (3) I loved the imperfection hiding in the symmetry of the brick pattern. Then, my sister-in-law worked out the details to create the professional image that I imagined.
Trusst was founded by women who challenged the traditional stereotypes of bra design - through engineering, physics, and product design that is not typically seen in the lingerie industry. However, that passion for challenge extends further than just through design; it resonates in the way you live your life as well as the way you perceive yourself and others around you.
We will continue to share stories of other women like Kaitlyn who are redefining beauty. And we welcome you to share yours as well! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or share photos and tag us with #becauseoftrusst and #redefiningbeauty for a chance to be featured in an upcoming blog post.
Thanks for all of YOUR support of our brand and mission - we wouldn’t be here without you.
I am so used to wearing a minimizer. From the looks of your bras, they seem like they make your boobs look even bigger than what they are. I do not want my boobs to look bigger or to feel like I am wearing a bulky contraption. Do you have suggestions on a style that might be close to a minimizer or reduce the size of my breast?
Thank you so much for writing to us! I would be more than happy to give some suggestions as far as style goes.
Firstly, our bras are not minimizers. Trusst bras were designed to lift and support while providing comfort. I recently spoke with another customer that was used to only wearing minimizers. She expressed to me that although the cut of the bras was a bit different than what she was used to wearing, she was given more support, coverage, and comfort than she anticipated.
The bra that this customer ended up purchasing both a Naomi and Marjory t-shirt bra. The Naomi bra is the definition of function meets fashion. It has a breathable, smoothing side mesh feature that keeps your side boob contained. The Naomi is also a convertible bra with 4 points of strap adjustment, allowing you to adjust strap length and a racerback option to work with every shirt. Whereas the Marjory t-shirt bra is a bra that you’ll forget you have on at the end of a long day. It has a smooth, wide 4-hook band that will work with your curves, rose gold hardware, and adjustable straps that do not budge during the day.
Although these bras will not minimize the size of your breasts, they will provide you with the support and comfort that may be missing in your current bra style. I would suggest giving us a try and feeling the difference for yourself. You won't regret it!
I hope this answers some of your questions. If you need assistance in finding the right size, please email us at email@example.com and someone on our team will get back to you ASAP to discuss!
So you measured yourself using our Size Calculator, maybe tried on a few bras, read all about how your bra is supposed to fit correctly - and you have determined you wear a size 38H. Great! But what does that actually mean? Trusst is based on science and technology, and we’re always fascinated with problem-solving and learning new things. We thought it would be fun to put together some interesting data and facts around this 38H number so that you can really get to know your size - because it’s not just a number...it’s a lifestyle.
As a 38H, your breasts weigh about 6.2 pounds. That’s a lot of weight to carry around! Good thing you have Trusst’s bra support technology to do the heavy lifting and take the pressure off your back and shoulders.
Band Size + Sister Sizing
Trusst bands fit true to your underbust measurement, which means that you measure within a range of 36.5-38.5 inches. As you have probably learned by now, your band should fit snugly (but not too tight!) and should lay parallel to the floor. If it is too loose and riding up, it might be time to size down in the band. This methodology of sharing sizes is called “sister sizing”. Each sister size has the same cup volume but is called something different.
The cup volume of a size 38H is also the same as a 40G, which is also the same as a 42F(DDD). So if the cup volume works for you, but the band feels too tight, you might want to try out a 40G. Vice versa - if the band feels too loose, you might want to size down in the band but up in the cup. Here is the Trusst sister size to your size 38H: 40G, 42F(DDD), 44E(DD), and 46D.
Our Favorite 38H Bra
Our favorite 38H bra is the Evie front closure bra, because it features a silver front closure detail with a demi neckline. It also has maximum strap adjustability, with a wider side-band that wraps around the fully mesh racerback. The mesh is lightweight and breathable, plus gives you a smooth finish.

Do you struggle with putting your bra on? Well, Trusst is here to help solve that problem with the introduction of their first-ever front closure bra! The Evie makes the process of putting on a bra much simpler with its secure front-closing clasp. By clasping in the front, the Evie eliminates the need to hook your bra from behind.
Front closure bras all tend to hook differently in the front, so it is important to note that ours does clasp differently than what you might be used to. To put the Evie on, you will first unhook the clasp. The clasp should be pressed forward from the back of the clasp, snapped forward, and then pulled downward. Once you slip the bra over your arms, you will want to scoop your breasts into the cups and then secure the clasp. When securing the clasp you will want to note that is it must be clasped by using an upward motion. The clasp will need to be connected from the bottom. You will secure it in the reverse order of what you did when you unhooked the clasp. We know, we know, but once you get it clasped - you will experience all of the unbelievable benefits of our advanced bra technology.
We have included a short tutorial to give you a visual on how to put on your Evie. We hope this helps!

If you have any other questions regarding our new Evie front-closure bra, our technology or sizing, please contact our team at email@example.com.
So far, we’ve talked about bell-shaped breasts and wide-set breasts, but today we will be discussing asymmetrical breasts. This is probably the most common breast anomaly among women. Especially since this is less about the shape of your breasts and more the size. So you could actually have asymmetrical bell-shaped breasts. What does asymmetrical mean exactly (when it comes to your boobs)? Well, it means exactly what it sounds like...your breasts are simply not even. One is larger than the other (or smaller depending on how you look at it).
With asymmetrical breasts, the style of the bra isn’t going to matter as much as the size. When you have breasts that are different sizes, sometimes drastically, you will have to adjust your bra size to accommodate your larger breast. This usually means that you will have to size up in the cup in order to fit the larger breast. This is a good rule of thumb to follow in general when it comes to clothing, too. As we learned from “What Not To Wear”, you should always fit the largest part of your body and then adjust from there. That may mean adding a bra insert into your other cup...or really whatever works for you. You might even be able to go and have your bra altered to fit. Either way, this is going to be the better option than wearing a bra that your larger breast is overflowing out of...we know that’s not a good look (or feel) for anyone.
As we have mentioned in our previous posts, we don’t believe that your breast shape matters when it comes to finding the right bra. At the end of the day what we care about most is having a comfortable and supportive bra that fits. Trusst can help with all of the above! When it comes to finding your correct size, you will want to start by entering your measurements into our Size Calculator to find your Trusst size. Once you have that (and are satisfied with the results) you can start the fun part...shopping! Note: if you need some additional help with sizing, our Bra Experts are here to help you out.
Our favorite styles include our everyday Marjory t-shirt bra for when you are simply looking for something to wear for any occasion and be comfortable. If you are looking for more from your bra and you happen to have a lot of side boob (the worst!) we would suggest trying our Naomi convertible bra - it has a side mesh feature for extra coverage. Lastly, the newest addition to our collection is our Evie front closure bra, which allows you to easily get into your bra. She also has a racerback to make it easier to wear all of your favorite summer pieces.
As always, we encourage you to give a Trusst a bra a try. We are happy to support you through our stellar Bra Experts, our Size Calculator (to help determine your best size), and our Bra PhD page for all the details about our bras.
I have donated all of my other bras to a women’s shelter. Trusst is the only bra brand I wear now. I now have a total of 6 Trusst Bras. It’s an essential in my wardrobe! I LOVE the jersey knit lining and how it keeps me feeling cool and fresh all day long. Another thing I love about these bras is that I was able to eliminate the cost of a chiropractor from my weekly expenses. These bras are magic! I highly recommend them!
This is all so fantastic to hear! I want to thank you so much for writing to us and sharing with us how truly great Trusst bras make you feel.
I personally love the jersey knit lining in our bras as well. I am a constant boob sweater, and the antimicrobial and wicking properties in the lining help to keep me feeling refreshed all day long. We put a lot of time and thought into these products and we are so happy that you are enjoying the features that we worked intensely on for quite some time.
It is also so incredible to hear that you have been able to eliminate the cost of going to the chiropractor. It is amazing what support will do for your body! Our bras were designed to lift up to 80% of breast weight from underneath. This then helps to relieve stress from the shoulders and back. It sounds like you are really feeling that relief!
It excites me so much to hear that you were able to replace all of your bras with Trusst bras! We think it is incredible that you were able to donate all of your other bras to those in need. Having customers as passionate and giving as you is what our brand is all about.
Have you ever tried to buy or actually bought a front closure bra? Did it work for you? Was it comfortable? The list goes on and on...but we really want to know because we don’t think that the options for plus size women have been good enough. Which is really at the crux of why this brand was started in the first place. We are creating a space for women and especially plus size women to find a home in their own bodies. Read more to find out why we’re in love with our new front closure bra, Evie.
Sometimes our bodies just don’t stretch the way traditional back closure bras want us to. When it comes to putting on your bra, there are two schools of thought. You are a behind-your-back closer OR you prefer to hook your band in the front and swing it back around. Thankfully, with a front closure bra, we take that grief away from you. You can simply put on the bra (like you would a jacket) and hook it in the front. No more struggling to get on your bra or even the anxiety you may have by not being able to comfortably get it on. We never want you to feel bad about your body - it’s not you, you’ve just been wearing the a bra that was built with your needs in mind.
Getting dressed in the morning can be a struggle. What do I feel like wearing? I hate everything in my closet. Nothing fits! We are always going back and forth with wanting to look good and also be comfortable. We are at work, school, running around with kids, etc. all day and we don’t have time to worry about our bra once our day gets started. The great thing about our Evie front closure bra is that it’s both stylish and comfortable. All Trusst bras are, without a doubt, the most comfortable bras you’ll ever wear. With this particular bra, though, we have also added more:
a new blush color to our repertoire along with our classic cream color (because sometimes you just need a neutral bra)
a mesh racerback feature because of the options it opens up for your wardrobe. You can wear this style with racerback tops (of course!) and also with high neck tops without dealing with your straps peeking out. If you wanted, you could also show off the mesh racerback with an open-backed top or dress. I mean, why not, right?!
Okay okay, back to the part about being comfortable. Because let’s be honest, that really is the most important thing. You know about our technology, right? If not, let us break it down for you. Our bras do not use underwire as the “support” in the bra, but rather a brand new patented bra technology. This technology uses your own body (your core to be exact) to support your breast weight from underneath - which takes over 80% off the weight off your shoulders. We want to make sure you totally get it, so let’s make it really easy. This bra is the most comfortable and supportive bra you will ever wear. It’s crazy - really! The only way to really know is to try one yourself. It’s worth the risk because there really is no risk.
As always, we want to hear from you. Have you tried an Evie bra yet? Are you interested? Anything we can do to help? We encourage you to comment below or reach out to our Bra Experts firstname.lastname@example.org for additional guidance.
I have had a helluva time finding a bra that fits and doesn't feel horrible. I'm so impressed with the technology—it truly does support from the sides and underneath. It's so nice not having dented shoulders and the biggest thing I've noticed is I never find myself adjusting/pulling the band down on my back or pulling straps up! My only complaint is that I'm barely a D cup but my breasts are very large in surface area and it's bordering on too big at the pointiest part. It would be super nice if they'd make C cups!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write to us! We are so happy that our revolutionary bras offer the comfort and support that you have been searching for.
We are so thrilled that you, along with so many other women, are finding your bra search comes to an end. Trusst Brands was created to end the disappointing struggles of searching for (and not finding) a supportive and comfortable bra.
Although we do not currently carry C- cups at this moment, we are always working towards expanding our products and sizing. Customer feedback is one of the pillars of our brand. It is vital to know what the community looks for in a brand and product. We at Trusst Brands want you (and your girls) to feel supported every day.
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and keep checking back for upcoming product launches.
“Tell me a little bit about your current bra situation”. These words are the first thing you will hear when you walk into our Pittsburgh Showroom. This space was created to give you a place to have an open conversation about your bra issues, experiences and more. More importantly, it gives the entire community an opportunity to touch, feel and try all of our products before ordering.
The Pittsburgh Showroom is currently the only physical location for women to come to get fitted and try on all of the current products before purchasing online. You will first be measured to find your bust and band measurements. From there, you will be sized into your Trusst size and begin trying on multiple Trusst bra styles. Bra Experts will work with you until you find a bra that makes you feel beautiful, supported, and comfortable.
Customers are able to schedule an appointment for a fitting time on our website or drop by if that’s easier. This gives them the opportunity to have a free, private fitting that allows the focus to be solely on the customer and their experience. We understand that bra fittings can be stressful and uncomfortable, but we are breaking that mold with our new Showroom.
The goal of our Showroom is not just to allow women to try our products, but to be a safe space for them to come and feel welcomed. Our team has been working to bring more events, speakers, and opportunities into the space by teaming up with other local Pittsburgh companies, groups and people. We want our space to offer women a place to be among other empowering individuals and to feel inspired.
Appointments can be scheduled through the Showroom Page of our website. If you are not a local Pittsburgh customer, we suggest reaching out to our Bra Experts for assistance with sizing, fit, and style. Our team is always available at email@example.com to answer any questions you may have.
I've tried the Marjory bra in 3 different sizes & it just isn't for me. If the band fits, the cups are too big or too small even trying them 1 cup size apart, i.e. a 40E & a 40F - band fits but the E is too small (I spill out the sides) and the F is too big. And the 4 rows of hooks was too much; 3 would have been plenty.
Thank you so much for giving the Marjory t-shirt bra a try. We are sorry to hear that you weren’t able to find the right fit for you. We always do encourage to try a couple of sizes to avoid the wait time caused by exchanging for sizes - so you made the right choice by trying a few sizes. We are just sorry to hear that it didn’t work out for you with this particular style.
Have you tried any other Trusst bras? Between styles, the fit will be different. If you want to give us another try, we would encourage you to try either the Naomi convertible bra or the Evie front closure bra. The Naomi has 3 hooks in the back and the Evie has a full racerback with front closure instead of the 4 hooks that the Marjory has.
The Naomi bra gives you more features like the side mesh for more coverage, a j-hook to give you another style option (racerback), and a variety of colors. The Evie is our newest style which has the new front-closure feature along with a wider side-band and breathable mesh racerback.
Besides the Size Calculator, we do encourage you to reach out to one of our incredibly helpful Bra Experts firstname.lastname@example.org because they can give you a lot more details about the fit and sizing, plus they can help with any return or exchange questions. Anything you need, they are here to help!
