Running counter to an industry dominated by out-dated ideas of ‘sexy', Heidi Zak and the ThirdLove team, from their base in San Francisco, aim to empower women by allowing them to be comfortable and supported throughout their busy days as parents, professionals and at all times of the day.
ThirdLove Co-Founders and Co-CEO's, Heidi Zak and David Spector have been recognized by Goldman Sachs GS, +1.00% as two of the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs of 2018” who were recently honored at the Builders + Innovators Summit held in Santa Barbara, California.
For instance, she felt not enough people told her how hard it was going to be, whereas I wished more people had told me how doable it all is. It took Zak a few months to bond with her first child, something a lot of women go through, but few openly talk about.
Too much padding, not enough padding, uncomfortable under-wire — ripping off that ill-fitting bustiere for the umpteenth time can make you throw your hands up and shout WHY ISN'T THERE AN APP FOR THIS?!” Well, thanks to ThirdLove , there now is, and consequently the experience can be a lot less harrowing.
Heidi Zak previously held a position in Google, and underpinned by this experience in the tech sector, and fuelled by her passion for retail and finding a bra that was a perfect fit—her research revealed that 80 percent of women wear bras that do not fit them correctly—and supported by the financial experience of her co-founder husband David Spector, ThirdLove was born in 2013.
THE entrepreneurial story of Heidi Zak was born out of a frustration she felt in common with millions of women across the world, when shopping for bras; or more accurately, the time-consuming difficulties in shopping for and finding a correctly sized bra.
Once the company helps customers find their size, it's easy for them to order and reorder. Co-founding ThirdLove has been a rewarding experience for Zak.
