Comfort and Beauty for the Plus-Size Lady with Leading Lady bras
The Most Comfortable Bra in America
All my life, I have been "chunky", "pudgy", overweight, "Plus-Size" so I'm used to it. I don't particularly like it, but it is who I am. Hubby and I are working on losing weight, but it's a lifestyle change and it is going to take time. Even when I was at my smallest in high school, I was still considered plus-sized. So, finding clothes, especially undergarments, is something that I have struggled with…well, since I began wearing them…
I have told you about Leading Lady's Plus Size bras before and I just thought I was in love back then. Last time, I chose a simple light blue, semi-padded, bra that was cute and comfortable. Hubby loved it, but it wasn't that intriguing sexy secret under my clothes that I love. You know what I mean, right?
This time when I looked through the bras, I chose Leading Lady’s Cotton Front-Closure Leisure Bra. I have never worn a front-closure bra before because I thought they wouldn't fit right or support my girls as they should. What got me this time, then? The polka dots, of course!
I told Hubby about the polka dots that were on the way and he was definitely interested. He hasn't really seen much along the lines of sexy undergarments since, um…our wedding night?!
When the bra arrived, I'm not going to lie, I was worried. It is super adorable (you'll have to trust me or check out the website pic…not going there) and has about ten clasps in the front, but what worried me was the straps. There are no adjusting clasps on the straps and I almost always have to adjust them!
I was pleasantly surprised when I put it on and the girls were in place and things were comfortable and well, it was amazing! Hubby loved the polka dots and said that things look more in place now (I think the blue one was getting a little big because of course I lose weight in the girls first…).
I am not lying here, seriously, I have worn it every day since it arrived (and yes, I have washed it several times, too)! I have even forgotten that it was on a couple of times and worn it to bed! It feels like wearing a fitted tank top because the shoulder straps are a little wider than other bras.
Occasionally, I have some trouble with the girls at attention when it's cold outside because there is not much in terms of thickness in the cup area, but there is a seam in the middle of the cup so I can sometimes hide it in the seam. Otherwise, I just make sure I'm wearing a jacket or just don't get cold (not a problem when it's 80 degrees in December in Texas)!
I'm not sure what else I can say about this particular bra besides I think it would be VERY important to use the Leading Lady fit calculator because this bra does not have any means of adjustment in size. For once, I am excited to be losing weight in the girls because that may mean that I can get a new one soon!
