Leading Lady is a company that specializes in Nursing Bras and Tank Tops for women for the past 70 years. The company started in 1939 with two sewing machines and four employees. From the baby boom in the late 1950s to the invention of the nursing tank top in the late 1990s, Leading Lady has never failed to be innovative, fashionable, and convenient when it comes to their nursing bras and tank tops.
When I found out I was going to be able to review one of their nursing bras, I immediately started the process of picking one out. The great thing about the Leading Lady website, is that they offer a simple way for you to fit your perfect fitting bra size. It’s been said that over 50% of women are wearing the wrong bra size, so this was a very helpful resource for me to use. You measure yourself around the areas that are lined with pink (check image above), and then you enter your band and cup size measurements in inches into the system. In no time, you can see which bra size is right for you. This makes shopping at their website a whole lot easier! To my surprise, I had been wearing the wrong bra size while I was nursing prior to Leading Lady.
Leading Lady offers a wide variety of bras for expecting and nursing mothers. You can choose to get a wire-free nursing bra for comfort or an under-wire nursing bra for support. They also offer nursing camis, nursing sport’s bras for active mothers, and bras for leisure and sleepwear. At Leading Lady, there is a bra for all kinds of nursing mothers. You’ll be surprised at how many styles and sizes they carry in their store. It’s like bra heaven!
“This bra is very comfortable and fits great. Even though there is no under-wire, it is very secure. It allows for easy access when you are breastfeeding because you can easily open the cup to breastfeed. The fabric is also very breathable and didn’t leave me feeling uncomfortable after each feeding. It’s slightly padded and it looks nice under my clothing”.
This is the Molded Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra. This bra is made from Nylon (85%) and Spnadex (15%) and is one of Leading Lady’s Best Sellers. This bra is available in nude, white, and black and retails for $23.80. This is one of the most comfortable nursing bras I’ve used so far. It’s slightly padded and fits your curves perfectly. The bra is very smooth and it looks great under clothing- no bumps, weird wiring, etc. The underwire’s band is a good length to give you extra support where you need it most- under your breast. The bra lifts and supports very well. I like that the band in the back is a very generous size, so it adds a lot of support as well. The nursing clasp is very easy to use and there were no complications when I was trying to unhook the bra to nurse. Simply unclasp the bra cup and you are ready to nurse. You can also use this as a leisure bra, which is what I’ve been using it as since I am no longer nursing currently. I can’t stress how comfortable this bra is. You simply have to try it for yourself!
