In my first 14 months of breastfeeding, I spent over $600 on nursing bras. I bought two bras before I even had my baby girl—it was on the “Take to Hospital” list from some book—and have since navigated an array of specialty and maternity stores in search of comfort and support. Despite getting properly measured at each store, and jumping around in the fitting rooms, no bra seemed supportive enough after an hour or two of wear without the tags.
With no less than 18 other nursing bras and camisoles in my possession, I must say that the Organic Molded Underwire Nursing Bra is the most comfortable and supportive bra I’ve worn…and I have worn it every day since it arrived! My breastfeeding cup size has ranged from 38DDD to 38J, and only this bra has maintained its shape over time. I have been wearing it daily for nearly two weeks, and it is so comfortable and supportive that I forget that I am wearing it. The cotton is soft yet firm, and the underwire is so padded that I forget it is there. Due to the doctor-instilled fear of plugged ducts by underwire bras, I only recently gave them a try—what a difference a wire can make! Two nights last week I found myself on the couch late night, still dressed and wearing the bra; I routinely remove my bras by dinner due to lack of comfort. It was then I realized I had discovered something special.
As for breastfeeding with the bra, it has standard one-handed clasps and strong stay-in-place straps for easy nursing access and reclosure. As I eagerly await the birth of my second daughter, I am thrilled to have discovered the Leading Lady Organic line of bras. I should mention the bra costs only $36; one of my other bras was $86 and it is too worn to be useful again.
