It’s All About the Details – The Features that Make a Big Difference in your Bras

by Erin Stieglitz on August 06, 2018

When it comes to your comfort and support, the smallest details can make all the difference. The various parts of your bras are like systems in a machine that all come together to create an overall look and feel. Each of these systems require the upmost attention to detail to ensure they are supporting your body in all the right ways.

We’re sweating the details in your bras so you don’t have to. From strap to band and everything in between, these are the features that ensure your bras make you feel great every single day:

Cups

Cups are the first detail that sets the tone for your polished look. Depending on your body shape and daily activities, you may prefer molded cups that enhance your curves, or lightly lined cups that naturally form to the shape of your body. Light padding is helpful for form fitting clothes to smooth your silhouette and hide any size discrepancies between breasts.

Band

Underwire or wirefree, you can’t go wrong with Leading Lady’s collection. That’s because all our bands are made to be comfortable and supportive, with or without wire. For those who prefer underwire bras, we use sturdy reinforced wire so you get the most out of this boosted feature. And our wireless bras are enhanced for a gentle yet snug fit that will stay in place and support your body.

Of course, the band isn’t just about the front of your body. It extends from front to back and that’s why our Leading Lady designs include bonus features 360 degrees. Many of our styles offer side-to-back smoothing zones that tuck away underarm and back bulge for a sleek shape. And we carry many bras with four rows of hook-and-eye closures for longevity and extra adjustability when you need it.

Straps

While cups encapsulate and a band supports from the bottom, straps create a lifted look. Effective straps will disperse the weight of your breasts across your shoulders and back but never dig into your skin or leave imprints. Adjustable straps ensure a great fit, even with size fluctuations.

Many of our full figure bras and nursing bras feature padded straps that are designed to gently rest on your shoulders for a comfortable fit and feel. Racerback bras include the ultimate “no slip” strap and many of our styles also have a unique adjustability feature. Leisure bras with wide straps offer extra comfort and stability for lounging and sleeping.

For breastfeeding moms, there’s nothing more convenient than nursing bras with easy one-handed nursing clasps built into the straps. This allows simple and discreet breastfeeding access. Virtually hidden, these clasps blend in with the bra color.

Fabric & Lining

We use only the softest fabrics on our bras, whether that’s lace, microfiber, cotton, spandex or a blend. Your body is dynamic and your bra’s fabric should be flexible enough for comfortable movement. We also consider the need for extra delicate linings against your sensitive breasts. Plus, most of our nursing bras and nursing tank tops feature soft inner slings for added support when your breasts are heaviest.

Style

Sure, your bras should be functional and fit impeccably, but they should also be an expression of you. Silky lace overlays and vibrant colors and prints are the perfect way to represent your mood. Our elegant details range from trims in lace, a pop of color, or tuxedo piping, to rosette and bow adornments, and scalloped edges for a trendy finish.

Extras

Even when you have specific needs that require something extra, Leading Lady has solutions for you. Our Cool Fit Nursing Bras are just want you need to beat the heat (and hormones) during breastfeeding. Our Comfort Fresh Panties are a refreshing and romantic way to stay cool in matching bra and panty sets. Allergic to latex? Check out our Latex Free Bra that is ideal for sensitive skin. With extended sizes up to 54H and 5X, and large band-small cup sizes, we have bras that compliment your beautifully unique body.
