Leading Lady Review
I jumped at the chance to try a new nursing bra from Leading Lady, a nursing and full figure intimate apparel company. Their goal is to provide, “comfort and support for every aspect of a woman’s lifestyle.” Everything from nursing bras to active wear.
I’m a larger size and need lots of support, so I wish they offered underwire nursing bras in the larger sizes. However, I tried the Baby Sees It bra, which is also designed to be supportive. The idea behind this bra is genius! When you bring down the flap to expose your nipple, baby has a fun pattern to view. I love that it’s in black and white, so even a newborn can benefit from it.
I don’t think my 9 month old noticed the pattern, but his latest fascination is with clips so he usually plays with my nursing tank clips while nursing anyway. As for my experience with wearing the bra, it was definitely very comfortable. The material felt like a favorite pair of PJs rather than a bra.
Instead of the usual plastic clips nursing bras have, the Baby Sees It bra has metal hooks, similar to the hooks you’d find on the back of your bra. There were three places to hook it to accommodate changes in breast size. Personally, I prefer the usual plastic clips better as they seem to be more secure and I can easy clip them in without looking. With this bra, I had to pay a little more attention to what I was doing. It wasn’t necessarily difficult, but when you have a squirming baby in your lap, you need things to be as easy as possible.
Overall, I had a positive experience with the bra. It works well as an “around the house” lounge bra. Without underwire, it just didn’t provide the support I needed for everyday use. However, to be fair, I think I need more support than most!
You can buy the Baby Sees It bra online for $32.99, or browse their selection of full figure or other nursing bras. Leading Lady currently only ships to U.S. addresses.
