Leading Lady {#mommetime Sponsor Spotlight}

Are you a full figured or nursing mama like me? In need of a great bra? Well look no further! 

Leading Lady is one of the country's oldest and most successful intimate apparel manufacturers. They specialize in quality lingerie for mothers-to-be and new moms, as well as full-figure bras, sleep/leisure bras and other specialty lingerie and accessories.

Leading Lady is a premiere intimate apparel company dedicated to creating comfortably functional, remarkably affordable, stylish and easy-to-wear bras, camis and sleepwear. A family owned and operated business, Leading Lady has been expertly tailoring full figure and nursing bras for top brands and retailers across North America for more than 70 years. For the first time, Leading Lady’s comprehensive line of full figure and nursing intimates – including our new spring collection – can be purchased directly on LeadingLady.com.

I had the opportunity to try out one of their products and I must say that I loved it! I received a Sport Wirefree Nursing Bra to use in my daily walks and trips to the gym.  I used the Find Your Fit tool on their website and ordered what size was calculated. The sports bra was not only comfortable but fit perfectly. And the material, 86% cotton, was soft and breathable.

I didn't have to keep digging at it while I was working out and found it easy to move in as well. It wasn't as binding or tight as the other sports bras I own. But it did keep the girls in line as we moved along. I love that this sports bra is not only comfy for working out but it can also be used in my day-to-day activities as well. The support it gives in the straps keeps my neck and shoulders from aching at the end of the day. A well-fitting bra makes all the difference! 

Leading Lady feels a great responsibility towards women’s issues, and are committed to making a difference. They offer our support to organizations that focus on the health and welfare of women and their loved ones in the communities where they live and work, directly linking them to their company’s values.

In addition, they proudly support and encourage their employees to volunteer their time to charities of their choosing.

Leading Lady is committed to protecting the environment and understands the effect that disposable products have on our environment. They've taken the responsibility to drive positive changes toward more environmentally friendly practices both in business and in communities.

I like that it was comfortable while working out; that has been a problem for me with other bras. It's wonderful that Leading Lady uses eco-friendly practices as well!

I've never seen a nursing sports bra before! I wish I had known about these a few months back. I don't want to purchase one now that I'm almost done nursing.
