Leading Lady Nursing Bra and Tank Review

          A couple of months ago, I had the chance to try some Leading Lady nursing bras and a nursing tank top. I was originally sent the Molded Seamless Wirefree Nursing Bra in my regular size, 38D. For some reason, this bra was too tight. They were very understanding and said they would send me a different bra/size. As part of a misunderstanding, I also received the Sport Wirefee Nursing Bra which was not my style. It was too see-through, did not have enough padding, and was too high-cut and stuck out of most of my shirts. It was very comfortable and did cover up my large breasts though. Theytold me not to worry about returning the two bras I can't use but to donate them to someone who can use them, therefore, I am looking for a mom in need to donate these two bras to. I was asked to take certain measurements of my bust and send them to them, along with the specifications of what I was looking for in a bra so their team of experts could pick out and send me a selection of bras to try. I received the Molded Seamless Wirefree Nursing Bra in size 40D, the Santoni Wirefree Nursing Bra in size XL, and the Square Neck Nursing Bra Cami with Inner Sling in size XL. I received the bras and cami fee of charge but did not receive any monetary compensation for this review. All opinions in this review are my own and based on my experience with the nursing bras and cami.

          The Molded Seamless Wirefree Nursing Bra is an example of the type of bra I usually prefer. I like that it has some padding to avoid my nipples and/or nursing pads from showing through. I also like the fact that it is low-cut enough to not stick out of the top of most of my shirts but high enough to contain my large breasts. The only downside is that this bra was too tight and uncomfortable in my regular size and I had to order one size bigger. The bigger size was comfortable and I would definitely buy more of these, especially in my go-to color, black. It usually sells for $30 but is currently on sale for $27.

          The Santoni Wirefree Nursing Bra is now my favorite bra. It is made of really soft material and is super comfortable. It contains my large breasts well but is also low-cut enough that it doesn't stick out of any of my shirts as far as I can tell. It comes with removable nursing pads so there are no nipples showing. If you don't like the padding, you can just take out the removable pads. I am totally in love with this bra and will probably buy more and live in them. It usually sells for $34 but is currently on sale for $30.60.

          The Square Neck Nursing Bra Cami with Inner Sling is super comfortable as well. It fit great over my 36 week+ pregnant belly and I wore it a lot during my last month of pregnancy. Eventhough there is no padding, I haven't had any issues with nipples showing through. Nursing pads are a little visible through the shirt but I haven't had to wear them yet. My baby is now 5 weeks old and I've lost my pregnancy weight but the shirt still fits great. The built in bra offers light support. I usually prefer more support than it offers but, at 8+ months pregnant, the comfort was just what I needed. I have been wearing the shirt for lounging around the house and sleeping in since the baby was born. The light support has turned out to be just what I've needed during the crazy engorgement and sore nipple stage. I would love more of these to sleep in and hang around the house in and wish it came in more colors. It usually sells for $34 but is currently on sale for $30.60.

          Leading Lady launched it's new spring collection in March of this year.
