When you become a mom all kinds of things change, not the least of which is the body; in a matter of months a woman can go from a flat tummy to a protruding belly, and our chests, well that’s another matter completely!

Actually it’s my chest that seems to give me the most trouble post pregnancy; I went from an A cup before my first pregnancy to a very full C cup after my last—that, my friends, is a huge change!  To be honest, I was always self conscious about my chest before I had kids, but going from no chest to a very there chest wasn’t the easiest thing to get used to!  While I’m thankful that my chest has definitely gotten bigger (naturally mind you, no breast implants here) I never realized how much of a pain it could be to find a good bra!  Sure, I can walk into any lingerie store and find a bra that’s pretty and that fits alright, but finding a bra that fits like a glove has definitely been a challenge, I always find myself pulling and tugging and repositioning…it’s really not a good time!   Though I’m constantly in search of the perfect bra, I never imagined that I would find that bra doing a blog review…but I did!

If you’ve never heard of Leading Lady, then you have no idea how important it is that you read this review!

Before I do a review I usually do a little research on the company, you know, so I can know what I’m getting myself into, and it was so interesting when I looked back on Leading Lady that I couldn’t help but share!

It all started back in 1939 when Frank Farino bought the bra company that he worked for (the Cleveland bra company) for little more than $240, plus two sewing machines and four sales accounts.  Leading Lady has learned and grown and evolved into a 70 year old intimate apparel retailer that’s a force to be reckoned with in the intimate apparel industry!  And can I just say, I love that this company is an Ohio based company!

I had the honor of doing a review for Leading Lady recently and I have to say, I was completely blown away by their bra!  Leading Lady, specializes in full figure and nursing bras and I even though I wouldn’t technically consider myself either one, I found a bra that fits great, feels amazing one and doesn’t bug me all day!  I’ve owned several different bra’s from several different brands but I’ve never found one that has even come close to the Lace-Cup Underwire bra that I received from Leading Lady for my review! 
Though the Lace-Cup Underwire Nursing bra is a nursing bra, and is very easy to use for breastfeeding, I love it because of the fit, the look and the comfort!  I have never worn a nursing bra before, mostly because I didn’t breastfeed, but if they’re all this comfortable, then I think I may have found the perfect bra!  Seriously, if you’ve never worn a Leading Lady bra, you must try it for yourself—you won’t be sorry!
