Do you feel like a Leading Lady?

02 May 2012
We all want to feel pretty and sometimes it's the smallest things that can give us that little kick. One item that can make you feel a little sexy is pretty undergarmets. Unfortunately, finding cute bras for those of us who are a little on the larger size can be difficult. Personally it's a challenge to find comfortable bras in my size, and ones that are actually appealling to look out are even harder still. Thanks to Leading Lady, it's now possible to find comfortable bras that are both comfortable and attractive for full figured women and nursing moms!

The folks at Leading Lady sent me two bras to review.  First was Leading Lady’s Scalloped Lace Underwire Full Figure Bra in nude. I'm normally not a fan of underwire bras, but this one is an exception. The back is 85% nylon 15% spandex and the lace is 92% nylon 8% spandex, giving it a soft, stretchy feel that is very comfortable. Plus, the lace gives it a flirty look which is often lost in full figured bras. I hate that my most comfortable bras are often "granny" styles that are not at all visually appealing. Cute, comfy, and it offers great support. This bra has quickly become my favorite.

The second bra I received was Leading Lady’s Lightly Molded Crossover Leisure Bra in white. This bra is 92% cotton 8% spandex, which makes for a soft fabric. Unfortunately, I was not as happy with this bra. I ordered the appropriate size, yet I seem to always be coming out the top of the bra. It's also not very supportive, which isn't a surprise with a leisure bra, but this actually offers so little support that it looks like I'm going braless. Basically you get the discomfort of wearing a bra and none of the benefits of doing so. This one I don't wear often and never out of the house.

I was pleased with the one bra from Leading Lady. Bra shopping online is always going to be hit or miss, but their Find Your Fit calculator made doing so much easier. If you are a full figured woman or a nursing mom I suggest checking them out. Chances are you will find something to suit you!

I wear a 36 almost-DD, so I ordered the DDD. PERFECT FIT! Although it is an underwire, I cannot get over how comfortable it is. I get just the right amount of uplift and support. The straps do not dig in, yet they stay put. Wonderbra ultimate bra is elegant and slightly retro in style with satin under cups, sheer organdy-is upper panels, and ornamented with pretty satin binding.
