Redefining Beauty: Meet Brittany B.
Brittany B. ended up discovering Trusst in a pretty surprising way. After months of her complaining about her bra, she and her husband were driving by our old space in Pittsburgh and noticed the sign out front. When they got home, he looked up Trusst...and the rest is history. We are so glad that she found us and that we could provide her with the comfort and support she’s been looking for - for way too long.

What does beauty mean to you?
To me, beauty is confidence. Knowing that “I’ve got this” or “look what a badass I am” is beautiful. People have pushed back against a singular vision of beauty because of the confidence they feel within themselves and others.
What does being comfortable mean to you and your life?
I live to be comfortable in both style and outlook in life. I am a teacher and never quite know what will happen from day to day. Being confident in knowing what I’m doing allows me to be comfortable with what life/work throws at me.
How did you discover Trusst?
My husband was driving down Penn Avenue and saw the Trusst sign. He was annoyed with me complaining about not finding a good bra. So he looked Trusst up and saw the technology used in the bra and decided it was a winner. He bought my first ones as a gift and I’ve been hooked ever since.
What is your favorite thing about Trusst and/or the products?
The support provided in the bra. I have always had bigger boobs and playing sports did a number to them. When I tried on my first Trusst bra I told my friends my boobs are back where they were always supposed to be.
What do you do on a daily basis? What builds your confidence?
I am a teacher, wife, avid reader, huge Pitt fan and cat mom. I’ve started working out consistently. I’ve been taking spin, boxing and barre classes at Local Motion which has helped build my confidence. It’s not the differences in my body necessarily that’s built my confidence. But rather, when I’m boxing I feel like I can kick some ass. The instructors and my fellow classmates encourage each other and celebrate the success at making our bodies strong AF.
Why did you choose this spot for your photograph? What does it mean for your life/lifestyle and you?
Choosing a photo was one of the more difficult parts of this. I chose this photo from my wedding last September. I love this picture because we were (finally) married and I felt so confident in my dress. This specific picture speaks to me because I feel like it shows my love for my husband after being announced married.
I also chose a candid photo that I love. It makes me feel confident, carefree and beautiful.
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.
