I love how comfortable it is and how stylish. Also love the front fasteners, and these would make awesome post-surgical bra's as well, as they compress and fasten with many snaps in between the breasts. The polka dotted bra was supposed to fit many sizes, however I am easily in-between a 36c & 36D (both fit, just depends on the brand) and it was super snug on me. It is comfortable, but made my breasts look very small.  I loved the sports bra and the pattern on it. Overall my opinion is Leading Lady is a wonderful company and I would definitely recommend them to a friend.

The bra's I got.

I got it in the burgundy floral pattern depicted in the picture.
95% Cotton, 5% Spandex 
I loved the way it fit and looked on me. The price is 21.20 right now.

Cotton/Spandex Wirefree Front-Closure Leisure Bra (Style #110 – $24): Peacock (available in mid April)
 I love the pattern on this bra. it's so cute. I am not nursing, but I wore it to the gym, and it's snug fit assured I stayed in place while jogging. I like it, even though it makes me look slightly smaller than I am.

Their BRAS are available in the sizes below. (Sizes vary from style to style though, n0ot every bra i available in every size).
