Save Babies Blogger Baby Shower: nursing bras from Leading Lady!

It’s day 2 of my week with the Save Babies Blogger Baby Shower! Today we’re going to talk boobs… and what they’re made for… feeding babies! Since 1939, Leading Lady not only sells nursing bras and other apparel items for breastfeeding mamas, but they truly care about and support us. They’re one of my favorite companies ever and here’s why…

Leading Lady’s nursing bras

Did you know 7 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size?! Especially as you go through pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weaning, you are continually changing size. I should draw you a chart of where I’ve been… all over the place. It’s hard to get your size accurate and proper fit is extremely important, especially for proper milk production and flow. Fit is also very important to Leading Lady and they created a Fit Calculator to help you out. Their customer service is also AMAZING if you need help selecting a size or if you find you purchased the wrong size and need a new one.

Breastfeeding moms need support. Nursing is natural, but I won’t lie and say it’s always easy. The beginning can be an adjustment, there may be some pain as you’re figuring things out, or frustrations with latching… I am certain I never would have made it without support of my husband and friends and family. Steve (the hubby) was amazing–he helped make sure I was comfortable, propped my feet up, he even read articles and watched a breastfeeding DVD to get tips to help me. I’m now still breastfeeding our 3.5 year old son and our 16 month old little girl ­čÖé Leading Lady has┬áwonderful resources for nursing moms:

  • You can check out Amy’s Corner, which is a blog filled with breastfeeding questions, tips, common misconceptions, etc. and you can even submit your OWN questions to ┬ábe answered by the lactation consultant!
  • There’s also Breastfeeding A-Z, like an FAQ guide, for anything you’re wondering about! Sore nipples, tandem nursing, storing milk, nursing in public, let down, and so so so much more.
  • Another resource at Leading Lady is the nursing bra guide. How many will you need? What kinds? Wire-free or with underwire? When will you need them? Find all the answers here.
  • And my favorite… an awesome breastfeeding handbook… and it’s FREE! Just download the ebook.

Leading Lady offers comfortable and stylish nursing bras. I own quite a few now and love them! They have nursing tanks, which are a must in my opinion. I wear these all the time under other tops and can easily nurse while keeping my belly covered. I have the nursing bra cami, modern square neck, modal nursing bra, and the shirred front.

Looking for a wirefree nursing bra? Having a wirefree bra is important for early stages of milk production and breastfeeding. Hands-down, my favorite bra ever is the Santoni Wirefree Nursing Bra. It’s just sooooo comfortable, I live in it. I know I’ll keep wearing it after I’m done breastfeeding too–someday! It’s seamless and has removable pads. Another great one is the Molded Seamless.

I recently received the Molded Seamless WITH underwire nursing bra to try out. I’m well into my breastfeeding “career,” haha, and my milk is well established and regulated… so I thought I’d go back to something with underwire (with a proper fit, there’s no need to worry about using underwire while nursing). I’m happy to report that it’s just as comfortable as the wirefree version and I don’t even notice it’s there. It ┬áhas the same seamless design that hides under clothing, molded and lightly padded, one-handed clasp for quick and easy nursing, and adjustable straps.┬áLeading Lady also has sleepwear options, leisure or sport bras, and nursing bras with front closure.
