Did you know that the average lifespan of a bra is about 6 months, and after that the elasticity and support declines? It's important to replace your bras regularly to ensure optimal fit and comfort, and Leading Lady is an e-boutique that can help you find new full figure and nursing bras.

Leading Lady Full Figure and Nursing Bra
Here is a little background on what Leading Lady offers:
Leading Lady is a premiere intimate apparel company dedicated to creating comfortably functional, remarkably affordable, stylish and easy-to-wear bras, camis and sleepwear. A family owned and operated business, Leading Lady has been expertly tailoring nursing and full figure bras for top brands and retailers across North America for more than 70 years. For the first time, Leading Lady’s comprehensive line of nursing and full figure intimates – including sexy stretch lace wire-free and underwire bras, supportive and seamless sport and yoga bras, and cozy sleep and leisure bras – can be purchased directly on LeadingLady.com.
I was looking for a good everyday nude bra that could transition into a nursing bra, and selected the Molded Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra. At $30, the price is a good value for a nursing bra and it offers these features:
Seamless style looks great under clothing
Molded and lightly padded to fit every curve perfectly
Quick, one-handed clasp for easy nursing
Underwire for added support
I found that the one handed clasp lived up to the claim and opened easily. The underwire combined with a very tight band provides full support. I did find the fit and profile of this bra to be a little uncomfortable for me – the bottom band was very tight and left marks on my skin after wearing for only a few minutes, while the cups had a little too much room in certain areas and made me look pointy instead of round. I felt like I should be a secretary on Mad Men with this retro look!
As with all bras, fit is very subjective of course and you may have a different experience depending on your own measurements and preferences. I've had professional measurements done and ordered my usual size, 34D. If you aren't sure of your correct size, Leading Lady offers a very easy to use online bra size calculator – 7 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size, so you may want to check it out!
In addition to nursing bras, Leading Lady offers a variety of other full figure bras including underwire, wirefree, leisure, and sports bras. Sizes range from 38A-52H.
