COMFORT IS BEAUTY

Breast Cancer Awareness 2017

Breast Cancer Awareness 2017As you breathe in the crisp autumn air, your heart may skip a beat as you remember the significance of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Chances are we all know someone – a relative, friend, co-worker, neighbor or acquaintance – who has battled breast cancer.

Fortunately, more women than ever are winning their battles but there is still much to be done to eradicate breast cancer mortalities. Knowing your risk factors and early detection are two key components to reaching this goal. And these are two steps where you can take some control of the situation.

Risk Factors of Breast Cancer

Understanding your personal risk factors for breast cancer can not only set you on a better path to prevention, but also help you remain vigilant so early detection is possible should you get breast cancer. Risk factors of breast cancer include:

  • Advanced age – risk increases with age
  • Age of first period, giving birth and menopause – early and prolonged menstruation and having babies later in life increases risk
  • Race, ethnicity and familial decent – White, Black and women of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage are most at risk
  • Family history – those with mothers or sisters who had breast cancer are at increased risk
  • Birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, naturally high IGF-1, estrogen, androgen or prolactin levels – increases risk
  • High bone density and breast density – increases risk
  • Weight gain and height (being taller) – increases risk
  • Radiation treatment or exposure – increases risk
  • Excessive alcohol use – increases risk
  • Light exposure at night and shift work – increases risk

Share your risk factor categories with your doctor to determine the best course of prevention and detection for your unique health status. Also, anyone can work towards decreasing risk factors by exercising and eating a healthy diet of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables (especially carotenoids). Plus, breastfeeding is one incredible way to reduce risk of breast cancer and reap many other health benefits for you and your baby.

Early Detection of Breast Cancer

Early detection of breast cancer saves lives. The leading way to early detection is through monthly self breast exams and feeling or observing abnormal chances to the breast or nipple. These may include lumps or nipple discharge. However, if you do find a lump, try to remain calm. Most lumps are benign but you should schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible to have it checked out.

Your physician, whether that’s an OBGYN or general practitioner, will likely perform a clinical breast exam at every check-up. Depending on your risk factors, healthy women begin having mammograms (an x-ray of your breasts) around age 40. Different agencies have varying recommendations for how often mammograms should be performed. Discuss a course of action with your doctor.

If a radiologist finds abnormalities in your mammogram, you will likely undergo additional tests until you are given an “all clear” or are diagnosed with breast cancer. Catching breast cancer at early stages yields a high rate of survival and helps ensure the cancer does not spread outside the breast.

The CDC’s Breast Cancer Awareness campaign highlights that, like bras, there is not a “one size fits all” course of action when it comes to breast cancer. Determining your risk factors and being vigilant about self-exams, clinical exams and screenings will help you stay on top of your health and lead to early detection for the best possible outcome.

6 Reasons to Eat Chocolate Every Day

If you’re a chocolate lover, you probably want (or more like need) to get you fix every day. And science says that’s really good for your health! When you eat chocolate every day, especially dark chocolate, you’re getting a ton of great nutrients that you may not even realize.Today we’re sharing six reasons to eat chocolate every day:

6 Reasons to Eat Chocolate Every DayReason #1: Chocolate Helps You Think Better

Chocolate contains antioxidants and iron that energize and oxygenate your blood. As more blood circulates to your brain, you become more alert, focused and better able to think clearly. And there are even studies that show the long-term benefit of chocolate for staving off brain-degenerative diseases.

Reason #2: Chocolate Makes You Feel Happier

Beyond the amazing taste of chocolate that makes you smile on the spot, chocolate contains the amino acid tryptophan that stimulates the production of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin. It also curbs stress hormones so you’ll stay more relaxed.

Reason #3: Chocolate Aids Digestion

Chocolate contains fiber that helps you eliminate waste from your digestive tract. It also has tons of flavonols and polyphenols that contribute to healthy flora in the gut for smoother digestion, a less leaky gut and reduced intestinal inflammation.

Reason #4: Chocolate Supports Your Heart

With all those antioxidants, flavonols and polyphenols, chocolate is a cardiovascular win too. It improves circulation, lowers cholesterol levels and helps prevent heart failure and other heart conditions.

Reason #5: Chocolate Revs Your Metabolism

There’s nothing better than using a daily dose of chocolate to lose weight. Dark chocolate with a high content of cacao can reduce insulin levels and boost weight loss. Plus, fiber and that satisfying taste of chocolate makes it last longer in your body so you won’t reach for less nutritious snacks.

Reason #6: Chocolate Rejuvenates Your Skin

In addition to getting the blood flowing around your body, chocolate accelerates blood flow to your skin. It also improves the thickness and moisture content of your skin and protects you from UV rays for an overall more youthful appearance.

So next time you get a hankering for some chocolate, by all means, eat it for your health!

Comfort Straps Make the Difference on Full Figure Bras

When you think about it, you wear your intimate apparel more than any other items in your wardrobe, and your bras get worn most of all. That means all-day comfort starts with your first layer, your bra. At Leading Lady we pour over every inch of our bras to ensure they provide the upmost comfort. Today we’re hyper-focusing on comfort straps.

Come see why comfort straps are so important on full figure bras:

Comfort Straps Make the Difference on Full Figure BrasFull figure bras feature extra support in every key area to ensure fuller breasts are lifted and positioned appropriately for health and aesthetics. The straps, cups and band work in concert to create the perfect harmony of comfort and support in full figure bras.

Comfort straps are impeccably tailored to feel “barely there” on your shoulders. With a wider width than regular straps, comfort straps reduce the concentration of pressure in one small space. They are also lightly padded with smooth materials so they rest softly on your skin. Ultimately, comfort straps are designed to gently lift your breasts without leaving impressions or redness.

Like many bra straps, most of our comfort straps are adjustable to help you find your best fit every day. Adjustable straps offer flexibility when your size shifts slightly or when you need a tighter, loser, higher or lower fit based on your wardrobe.

All too often full figure women give in to uncomfortable straps because they feel this is the only way they can achieve the support they need. That couldn’t be further from the truth. A good full figure bra will support without straps that dig into your skin and leave marks or irritation on your shoulders.

In fact, comfort straps are more important on full figure bras than bras for smaller breasts because they help counterbalance the weight and strain fuller breasts can put on your shoulders, neck and back.

When it comes to fit and comfort in your full figure bras, make comfort straps a priority. Comfort straps are a signature feature in our full figure bra collection including our Luxe Lace full figure bras, Dreamy Comfort full figure bras, Molded Padded Seamless full figure bras and our Scalloped Lace full figure bra.

The strap of your bra may not seem like such a big deal, but it’s our job to ensure every inch of your bra is comfortable. Comfort straps can make a world of difference in the garment you wear most in your wardrobe.

 

Foods that are Good for your Teeth

It’s no secret that your diet is a major component of good health. Functional foods have many benefits from boosting your brainpower to helping your heart, and they can also promote good oral health. Foods that are good for your teeth may help prevent cavities, strengthen enamel and reduce gum disease.

Consider chewing on these foods that are good for your teeth:

Fiber-rich vegetables: Vegetables are naturally lower in sugar and high in tons of body-loving nutrients. They also have lots of fiber so you’re required to do some hefty chomping and gnawing to eat them. The process of chewing creates more saliva that rinses plaque-forming bacteria away from your teeth. Plus, veggies like spinach and kale can scrub your teeth as you chew them and they contain calcium which has oral health benefits as well.

Foods that are Good for your Teeth

Apples, Carrots and Celery: Much like high-fiber vegetables, apples, carrots and celery take time and effort to chew. As you crunch away, your teeth are getting wiped down and you are stimulating your gums as well. Each of these foods is packed with water that helps rinse your teeth. Plus, apples, carrots and celery help remove food particles too.

Tea: Studies show that the polyphenols in black tea and green tea help reduce bacteria in the mouth and decrease plaque build-up on teeth. Tea contains natural fluoride too, which is nature’s enamel-strengthener.

Calcium-rich foods: Cheese, milk, yogurt, almonds and green leafy vegetables contain calcium that support strong bones and teeth. Your teeth need calcium to maintain their enamel. Calcium-rich foods can repair some of the damage caused by acidic foods. Also, milk and cheese help neutralize bacteria that causes plaque so drinking a glass or milk or a few bites of cheese after a sugary snack can be helpful.

Phosphorus-rich foods: Like calcium, phosphates combat lesions made by acidic foods by depositing nutrients back into the enamel. Stock up on eggs, chicken and meat to reap this benefit.

Strawberries: Start improving the color of your teeth with something sweet, like strawberries. Sure, they have a little natural sugar but that’s more than made up for by its concentration of malic acid that naturally whitens your teeth.

Consume these foods in moderation that are not so good for your teeth:

  • Acidic citrus fruits
  • Candy of any kind because it coats your teeth in sugar
  • Soda and sports drinks also leave a sugary residue on teeth and have citric and phosphoric acids that erode enamel (yes, even diet versions have it)
  • Wine, even white wine, contains acids that stain teeth. Red wine has tannins that, although healthy for other reasons, further contribute to stains.
  • Coffee also stains teeth and leaves teeth sticky so food particles and plaque are more likely to linger

10 Things Every Woman Should Know About Her Skin: Part 2

10 Things Every Woman Should Know About Her Skin: Part 2We’re back with our series on 10 things every woman should know about her skin. Just like wearing the right full figure bras can boost your confidence, we want you to have gorgeous skin that makes you look and feel youthful and fabulous. As we learned earlier this week, that starts with adopting a good skincare regimen early, eating a healthy diet, practicing good hygiene habits and doing a facial workout every once in awhile.

Today we’re rounding out our 10 things every woman should know about her skin with five more reminders that will keep you glowing from your 20s to your 90s.

6 – Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Your entire body craves water and your skin is no exception. Drinking enough water is one of the simplest, most inexpensive and best ways to healthier, younger-looking skin. Skin hydration comes from drinking plenty of water and upping your intake when you lose water through sweat, dehydrate with alcohol or coffee, or retain water from salty foods. Don’t forget to eat water-based foods such as watermelon, cucumbers and low-sodium soups. These count towards your daily hydration as well.

7 – And Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

After you take care of the inner hydration, make topical hydration a priority by moisturizing each morning and at night. Daytime moisturizing should ideally happen right after the shower to lock in water moisture. Try a nighttime moisturizer with retinol, a form of Vitamin A that helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Always, always, always wear sunscreen. That means every single day, regardless of the weather or your plans to be outdoors. Daily UV exposure occurs even without direct exposure to sunlight. Wear SPF 30 or higher for the best protection.

When you are in the sun, be extremely vigilant about your use of sunscreen and wear protective clothing, hats and sunglasses. Squinting due to the sun can leave permanent lines around your eyes. Remember, heat of any kind – whether it’s the sun, an open fire or a heating unit – can breakdown collagen and cause inflammation. Avoid heat exposure whenever possible.

8 – Out with the Old

If you’re working hard to elicit your best skin, do yourself a favor and get rid of the old skin that lingers on your face (and body) by exfoliating several times a week. This small extra step allows the younger, fresher, more resilient cells waiting underneath to have their time in the spotlight.

Also, exfoliating helps open your pores, helping all those delicious nutrients in your skincare routine to penetrate deeply into the layers of your skin to work their magic. On days when you are not exfoliating, use a warm washcloth to open your pores.

9 – Don’t Ignore Your Skin’s Clues

Like aches and pains inside our body, our skin can give us clues about bigger health issues. First and foremost, it’s essential to have a regular check-up with a dermatologist to ensure your skin is healthy. Your doctor will review moles and other concerning spots on your body to ensure nothing looks out of the ordinary and potentially dangerous.

Wrinkles on your skin may mean you have low collagen proteins, which is also what makes bones strong. This could be an indication of low bone density. And of course your skin may be a reflection of a poor diet, not enough exercise, or pure exhaustion. And speaking of sleep…

10 – Become Sleeping Beauty

Sleep is another super simple and ever-so-vital step to great skin. When you don’t get enough rejuvenating sleep, your entire body suffers, including your tired-looking face. Remember to change your pillowcase regularly to avoid the reintroduction of bacteria. Experts agree silk pillow cases are the sleekest and therefore least likely to contribute to wrinkles.

10 Things Every Woman Should Know About Her Skin: Part 1

Most women strive to be beautiful inside and out – that is, having good character, maintaining a healthy body, and polishing up for a pleasing outward appearance. A full package, as you might say. When it comes to looking great, your skin is ever-so-important. We’d put it right up there with creating a gorgeous silhouette by wearing the right full figure bras. This week we’re sharing 10 things every woman should know about her skin to help you put your best face forward so both your inner and outer beauty can define your best self.

1 – Beauty is more than Skin Deep

If you put a lot of stock in the quality of your skin, then you should also care a lot about what you’re eating and others ways you treat your body. What goes into your body directly influences your skin in much the same ways as what you put on your body.

Eating a healthy diet that includes lots of fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories is essential for radiant skin because they nourish and repair cells throughout your body, including skin cells. Also, omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon, walnuts and flax seed helps your skin retain moisture for a fuller and smoother appearance. And don’t forget to get enough calcium to prevent your facial bones from shrinking leaving loose skin to sag.

For a quick nutritional boost from the inside, try chlorophyll shots or tablets, drinking green vegetable juice and taking a daily women’s multi-vitamin.

2 – Even the Good Age Young

Believe it or not, aging begins in your 20s. Yikes! It is always easier to retain collagen than it is to replace it so start a skincare regimen that helps you maintain skin elasticity early. The more years you’ve taken care of your skin properly, the slower you’ll show signs of aging.

3 – Do a Facial Workout

Here’s a workout that’s a lot easier than spinning or barre class: exercising and stretching your face. Your face has muscles just like the rest of your body and to keep them tone, you’ve got to move them. So go ahead and make those ridiculous faces in the mirror and smile a whole lot in the name of facial toning.

After your “workout” try a professional or DIY facial massage to stimulate fibroblasts that produce collagen. Your skin will look and feel suppler in no time.

4 – Hands Off

Your hands carry billions of bacteria that can lead to breakouts, wrinkles and even get you sick if you touch your face before washing. Always wash with soap and warm water before applying moisturizer, makeup or touching your face.

While you’re at it, wash brushes and sponges regularly because they, too, can harbor bacteria that will blemish skin.

5 – Beware of Hormones

When your hormones are freaking out, your skin may (unwillingly) go along for the ride. During pregnancy, menopause or your period your skin will often reflect the shift of hormones occurring inside your body. Skin during pregnancy and while menstruating tends to be oily or extremely sensitive. Both of these problems can lead to breakouts, acne or other skin reactions. Skin during perimenopause or menopause may be dryer than usual. And we’re sorry to break the bad news ladies but acne can actually increase as you get older.

To defend against hormone related skin issues, eat foods that combat your issues. Carbs and high-fat foods tend to fuel oily skin so do your best to avoid them when you’re nearing your period. Eating hydrating foods can support skin moisture around menopause. Also, switch up your skincare routine as necessary to better address your skin problems at any given time.

Stick around later this week for the rest of our series on the 10 things every woman should know about her skin.

National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: Why Teal?

September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and we’re all about wearing teal. Why teal? We’re so glad you asked!

Teal is the color that reminds everyone – that’s women and anyone who has a woman in their lives that they love such as a mom, a sister, a wife or a friend – that Ovarian Cancer is a life-threatening disease that cannot be ignored.

National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: Why Teal?

Teal is the color that reminds us of the major symptoms of Ovarian Cancer: bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, trouble eating or feeling full quickly, and feeling the need to urinate urgently and often.

Teal is the color that reminds us to know the risk factors for Ovarian Cancer: family history, age, high number of lifetime ovulations, breast cancer, hormone replacement therapy, fertility treatments, being overweight and endometriosis.

Teal is the color that reminds us to adopt healthy habits that reduce risk factors for cancer including eating a wholesome diet, exercise, not smoking or taking drugs and maintaining an appropriate BMI.

Teal is the color that reminds us to participate in National Ovarian Cancer Awareness events such as walks and fund-raisers to support research to end the disease.

Teal is the color that reminds us to visit our physicians for regular check-ups or to investigate any health issues that are out of the ordinary for our bodies. Pap tests do not detect Ovarian Cancer.

National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: Why Teal?Teal is the color that reminds us that 22,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer every year and over half of the cases are deadly. One in 75 women will develop Ovarian Cancer in her lifetime.

Teal is the color that reminds us that Ovarian Cancer is the 8th most common type of cancer among women (excluding skin cancers) but the 5th most common deadly form of cancer for women.

Teal is the color that reminds us that early Ovarian Cancer has few to no symptoms. But if Ovarian Cancer is caught early before it spreads, it is far less likely to be fatal. (90% survival rate in the first 5 years)

Teal is the color that reminds us that we must stop Ovarian Cancer with our support and our actions.

10 Things to Do on your Day Off

10 Things to Do on your Day OffHappy Labor Day! If you’ve woken bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and are wondering what on earth to do on your day off, you’ve come to the right place. We have 10 fabulous ideas of things to do on your day off that are productive, entertaining, delicious, heart-pounding, generous and adventurous all at the same time.

Check out these 10 things to do on your day off:

1 – Attempt a New Recipe: A day off is a great time to try a new recipe because if it fails, you have plenty of time for a backup plan. Make the effort to shop for fresh ingredients and actually follow the recipe. Who knows, maybe you’ll come up with a new favorite dish!

2 – Clean One Space:  No one wants to spend their entire precious day off cleaning but make a vow to work on one space that needs a good cleaning. Maybe that’s organizing your pantry, scrubbing down your makeup bin, or throwing out old junk from the attic. Every little bit counts.

3 – Have a TV series or Movie Marathon: Throw on your coziest leisure bra, sit back and enjoy binging on a favorite TV or movie series that you haven’t seen in awhile. Sex and the City, Star Wars, Disney or Bond, whatever floats your boat! Do be sure to have plenty of popcorn and ice cream on hand.

4 – Try an Obscure Fitness Class: Move outside your comfort zone and check out a fitness class that has been tempting you for awhile such as belly dancing, stiletto workout (yes, this does exist), or a trampoline jumping course. Even if you have to travel a bit further than your normal gym, exercising outside the box can be good for your body and brain. With our wirefree sports full figure bra you’ll get the support you need for low-to-moderate impact exercise.

5 – Help Someone Else: Carve out a few hours to help someone else. That may be helping a friend with a move, volunteering at a shelter, or cuddling with babies in the NICU. Participating in charitable activities for those you love or even complete strangers can make you feel whole, grounded and connected.

6 – Eat Slowly: Are you usually shoveling down your lunch to get back to the grind? On your day off, take time to savor your food. Eat deliberately and slowly, and enjoy every bite.

7 – Venture into a New Neighborhood: Take a drive or walk off the beaten path and check out some recommendations you’ve wanted to try. Stroll through an antique store or dine at a new restaurant to get the local flavor. Even areas just outside your normal “circle” can feel exotic on a day off.

Your busy life is probably very loud. Try to enjoy quietness and be mindful of the sounds you often miss in the hustle and bustle of your days. These small acts of meditation can keep you centered.

9 – Build Something: Nothing beats the victorious feeling of building something. And it’s not just good for your psyche; it’s also great for your mind. Put together that storage shed that’s been sitting in its box for months, buy a lego kit or simply look up how to make fun origami animals. You’ll feel so accomplished when you’re done and it will be a day-off well spent.

10 – Catch up on Sleep: We don’t recommend sleeping the day away but do go to bed early so you feel rested and ready for the remainder of your week. That will help make the relaxed feeling of your day off last a lot longer.

Tips for Losing Weight Without Exercise or Dieting

Tips for Losing Weight Without Exercise or DietingWe get it – your days are jam-packed and you’ve got more than a full plate. Who has time to exercise? We’re not condoning a life void of exercise but there are just some weeks (and months) when working out is not on the agenda. On the diet side of the equation, you should always strive to eat healthy, but dieting itself is usually not the way to go. And sometimes even when you are working out and eating right you’re still not able to reach your weight loss goals. That’s why we’re sharing tips for losing weight without exercise or dieting. These small lifestyle changes that take almost no extra time out of your busy days can help you effortlessly burn hundreds of calories. You interested?

Losing weight without exercise or dieting is based on two key principals: move more during the day and sleep more at night. Now, if you’re like most humans, you’re already on the move during the day and you sleep some at night. But if you focus and put effort into really maximizing your potential in both of these areas, the calories you can burn or simply not consume is as if you did a workout or altered your diet. Not bad!

Move More During the Day

Our increasingly sedentary lifestyles, fueled by the luxury of technology and automation, contribute to a lot less body movement than say 30 years ago. When you ramp up the simple activities that you do during the day, you can burn some serious calories. You can start by putting a little “pow” in your household chores such as laundry, vacuuming, cooking, mowing the lawn and cleaning. Bend more, squat more, lung more, scrub harder, change your levels and put full body movements into everything you do at home.

When you’re out-and-about, forget the elevators and escalators and take the stairs instead – yes, even if you work on the 10th floor of your office building! If you have a sedentary job, get up every 20-30 minutes to move around. While you’re working, try standing at your desk or sitting on an exercise ball rather than a traditional chair.

Do your best to never remain idol. When you’re waiting on your computer to open a file, do some chair aerobics. When you’re stopped at a traffic light, shift your core to work your abdominal muscles. In the grocery store checkout lane, do some inconspicuous stretching. It all adds up and at the end of the day it makes a big difference. Plus, more movement throughout the day will make you more tired at night. Which brings us to our second point…

Sleep More at Night

Many studies have shown the correlation between sleep and weight loss, or worse, lack of sleep and weight gain. One of the biggest problems with not sleeping is that the hunger hormone ghrehlin goes into overdrive while the fullness hormone leptin drops. This can cause you to eat up to 700 calories more per day when you sleep less than six hours a night.

Most people need at least seven hours of sleep per night to reap the restorative and weight loss benefits of slumber. Some may need more so it’s important to figure out how much sleep your body needs and when your peak sleeping hours should be. Sometimes going to bed too early or too late impedes your ability to get as much sleep as your body really needs. Also, lying in bed not sleeping isn’t a productive use of your time, which could be better spent maintaining healthy habits such as meal planning, stretching and reducing stress by preparing for your day.

Keep in mind that cooler temperatures help you sleep better so crank up the AC at night. Your body will also have to work harder to keep you warm while you sleep, which torches some extra calories right there.

Losing weight without exercise and dieting is just that easy. Depending on your weight loss goals, these small steps could help you break through your rut and drop those last few pounds you’ve been hoping to shed.
