The Leading Lady has microfiber molded seamless cups, “designed to give you a smooth, sleek look.” So far, so good. I’ve worn the bra for three days now and there’s no unsightly wrinkles or lines under my clothes. I opted for the pretty pale pink because I wanted something muted enough to wear under light colored shirts but to still stand out in my underwear drawer. I guess I’m not ALL function then, right?!
The material of the bra is super soft, and one of my favorite features so far is that instead of the standard three band settings (the little hook and wire thing – I don’t know what it’s called), there are four! This is perfect for me to wear and adjust gradually as I lose weight. The straps also change to your comfort level, and since I’m pretty tall with broad shoulders I always need to lengthen my straps.
I have to say that so far I’m impressed. Even more impressive is that I ordered the bra in my usual size, and the fit is dead on. This has always been one of my concerns about shopping for bras online – every brand seems a little bit different, but the Leading Lady line is true to size. My bra fits with no puckering, back bulge or the awful red marks under the breasts from the underwire. There’s even a cute little pintuck detail around the bottom.I’d like to thank Karen and the fullbeauty team – they may have just proved me wrong! I really recommend you check out the fullbeauty site – the prices are all extremely reasonable and much less expensive than Kohl’s or Macy’s. There are also really beautiful bras for plus-sized women, when we’re normally reduced to the basic over the shoulder boulder holders. I mean, look at this beauty – this the type of bra that isn’t really meant for daytime wear, if you catch my drift, but I’m sure wearing it in the day would add a little extra spring in your step!
There are also a bunch of coupon codes listed here to help you reduce shipping costs. In fact… I’m planning on buying a couple more items to keep my girls supported – the wirefree sports bra (on clearance for $9.88! SCORE!) and this camisole bra, which I’ve been eyeing for awhile and is a great price at $24.99.
So, now that I may have found a solution to my endless problems with bras – do any other ladies out there struggle finding the perfect fit? What’s usually the problem with yours?
