Q&A With Heidi ZakThe brand now services an estimated 87 percent of women. With the company's Break the Mold initiative - a play on words, the company actually had to make their own unique molds to create those innovative half sizes - Zak wants to share the stories of female founders like herself and the accomplishment of ThirdLove's customers.
