The Leading Lady Bra company was founded in 1939 by Frank Farino. They are one of the country’s oldest and most successful intimate apparel manufacturers specializing in nursing bras and bras for full figured women, today.
In February I was offered the chance to do a review on the “Leading Lady Bra”. I received the Leading Lady’s Molded Padded Seamless Wirefree Full Figure Bra (5042) for this review and one Bargains4Wahms reader will win one free item from the Leading Lady e-boutique.. I am very impressed! This bra is VERY comfortable! I don’t have favorite bra’s, but this one has become my favorite bra now! lol
There are few things that I look for in a bra: great support (seamless under wire) padded, molded and seamless cups – essentially your typical t-shirt bra. I want to be comfortable for the hours I have to wear any bra!
Now I have never been officially measured, so I used Find Your Fit on the Leading Lady site and ordered my bra based on the size calculated from my two measurements.
The fit of this Leading Lady bra is just right. It has great support (my chest is centered between my shoulder and my elbow – which is where it should be.) The cups are formed just right for a nice rounded, separated appearance (no pointy boobs)! lol This has just enough padding to feel confident. I have the black color, perfect for my dark colored summer tank tops & t-shirts.
This particular bra is $38 and I admit it’s pricey, I usually spend about $10 – $15 on a bra, but when compared with the lack of quality and fit of lesser bras, this Leading Lady bra (my new favorite) is well worth it!
