I am undoubtedly in the minority here as I am not one who enjoys fancy bras-this includes push-up, lifting, or any of those other bra styles. A slight pushup is okay, however I am a very busy mom who is on-the-go most of the day. I need comfort, not sexy. I’m also a mom with a large bust, so finding appealing bras that fit properly typically doesn’t happen. Until I was introduced to Leading Lady, a premiere nursing and full figure intimate apparel company dedicated to creating comfortably functional, remarkably affordable, stylish and easy-to-wear bras, camis and sleepwear.
Stylish bras for full-figured women? Enthalling! You see, the problem I have with a majority of bras is the way they fit. I’ve had two children, so my bust sags, I know details Nichol, but it is true. Leading Lady allowed me to choose a bra from their line, and I knew without a doubt I wanted to try the cotton front closure leisure bra. It had similarities to a non-padded bra and a sports bra all-in-one.
When my Leading Lady bra arrived it proved to be that. With 4-clasps that fasten in the front, wide straps and a racer back I knew this would be ideal for days I was running around, trying to get in exercising, playing Just Dance with Zoe or just because. I put the bra on and couldn’t believe how comfortable it was, and it wasn’t ugly either! The bra is 90% cotton making it breathable and soft also stretchy from the spandex. Although, I chose an all-white color, there are several colors available to suit the needs of everyone. I haven’t had a front-closure in years, but will be changing that. I forgot how simple it is to put on and take off. If you are a mom who breast feeds, this bra also would be wonderful for you, for the ease of the clasps, not to mention the cups are non-padded so it will securely hold nursing pads.
Because it is non-padded it doesn’t give you the benefits of a push up style bra or lifting, but it securely holds. This bra is also extremely comfortable when taking naps; if you are anything similar to me, you know this is not comfortable. The only issue I had with the bra is the wide band straps, which by the way are not adjustable. Many of the tops I wear in the summer are V-neck or low-cut or I wear tank tops, but with the wide straps they do show, not flattering. This made a frustrating change of clothes several times, to find a top that suited the bra.
This bra has become a favorite of mine to wear around the home, exercising or on a typical day. It gives me the support I need for my full bust, yet feels like a sports bra. There are no straps to untwist, annoying wires, or pads that make my chest look unnatural. Not once have I had to “adjust” because they fell out of the cup. I am pleased with this style of Leading Lady bra and will be on my way to ordering more colors of this exact style.
Leading Lady also has a full line of nursing bras available in in sizes 34B to 48 F, and full figure collections, available in sizes 34 A to 56 DDFG. Their lines of bras are affordable, and they do have sexy styles as well including stretch lace wire-free and underwire bras, supportive and seamless sport and yoga bras, and cozy sleep and leisure bras.
