Leading Lady Review/Giveaway Ends 8/20

I got the chance to review a few things from Leading Lady and I love them!  Now, I don't have many nursing tops because I'm always worried about the shelf bras actually accommodating someone of my size.  I've always just used the 2-shirt method or nursed from the bottom of my shirt.   I reviewed 2 tanks and a front closure bra.


The first tank was a Bestform Nursing Bra Cami in size 2X.  It fit wonderfully around my chest however it was roomy in the belly- which tells me that I'll get some great use out of it should I get pregnant again ;)  It's also pretty good at camouflaging the little bit of baby pudge I have left since it's not skin tight.  I have it on now actually and it's very comfortable.  I actually really like sleeping in it because it's easy to use when I have to nurse my little one at night but it keeps my belly nice and warm which is necessary during the summer months when our air conditioner is on in the bedroom while we sleep (Ed likes to keep the room cool).  I did not take a picture of the 2X because I'm wearing it in the video.

The second tank was also a Bestform Nursing Bra Cami but in size XL. 
I found that this tank fit better in the stomach area but was a little more snug in the chest.  It's still very comfortable.




Both tank tops offered me quite a bit of support and left me feeling very comfortable which says a lot! I am a 34/36 F (I technically measure 35 so I can go either way.  I prefer a more snug fit so I usually go with the 34) so finding something supportive is difficult for me.


I'm completely impressed with how easy the clasps are as well.  They are truly easy to use one handed!


Finally, the bra that I reviewed was the Cotton Front Closure Leisure Bra.  This bra is simply amazing.  I think this is by far the most comfortable bra I have found in a long time!  Back when I was a C cup I had a much easier time finding comfy bras but as I started getting larger (Thank you breastfeeding!), comfortable and supportive bras became a thing of the past.  This bra however is stretchy, soft, and pretty supportive.  What I do is just unhook a few of the hook and eye's and pull the cup aside to nurse, this way it's still hooked but I have enough room to work with.

On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, I think:
Quality: 10
Comfort: 10 
Support: 10 (this is going to vary from product to product but I felt that the front closure bra specifically offered a lot of support)
Ease of use: 10
Price: 10  (again this will vary from product to products but I feel that they offer quite a few options that are inexpensive.

The only cons that I can find are the "slings" that are for added support in the camis.  I have a hard time figuring out where to put them so that they're not visible but that's not Leading Lady's fault.  That's user error and I know this because I have the same problem with my bras from Motherhood Maternity.  Other than that,  I love these camis.
