I wear a very odd, very hard-to-find size (42A) since losing weight. Most bras do not come in this size, and I even tried 42Bs with falsies. Since I was always (before weight loss) a (full) 42C, falsies were ... very uncomfortable! When I did find a 42A (very rarely), the cups were centered on my chest, so most of my breasts tried to fall out the sides. Again, very uncomfortable. These (I bought both wired & wireless) were both comfortable, increased modesty under lightweight sweaters & tees. Thank you,

I don't like bras and I don't like spending money on them. However, they seem to be a necessary evil so I buy one every so often -- and only wear it when I have to. That said, I have to say this bra is actually comfortable -- so comfortable that I forget I have it on. And I don't know of any better recommendation than that.
For years I wore and loved the same bra until it was discontinued. Kept trying new ones, but only the Leading Lady styles have been comfortable and supporting. Yes, the cups are large so go down a size, but the rest of bras construction makes up for it. Will only order Leading Lady now! Please get more in stock!
Comfort and support
I've worn underwire bras for decades but they have become increasingly torturous. I looked for a solution in wirefree bras for full figured ladies. My first order was too see through but I kept it since it's fine under some clothing. The next order was a hit!
Great coverage, support and comfort. I no longer rush home from work to take those uncomfortable bras off.
48A. Best so far, but cups are still too big..
Really do love the bra, but 48A and cups are still too big and band too snug. Any chance of coming up with a 48AA and a 50AA? Know lots of women with the same problem as me: Huge chests, but not so huge breasts (relatively speaking), but still need some support. Please, please, please!
Wished cup was not "too big" for bra size
Sizing had too big cup for the bra size. I measured 42A. 42A: Band was right size, but cup was way too huge like a granny's bra. That won't do. 40A: Band was way too tight, but cup was just right. So although I measured 42A, I went with 40A for the cup size and got bra extension for the band instead. It'll be perfect if the A cups were smaller.
Nice Bra but cup size was way off
I gave this bra one star because the band size of the the bra fit well but the cup was ridiculously large. I wear a C cup and the cups on this bra were like DD to DDD. I realize I am a big girl and need a larger band size but my breasts are a normal C cup which this bra was not. i actually bought 3 of these bras and I have returned all of them. Just because I need a larger band size doesn't mean the cups should grow as well. A C cup is a C cup no matter what the band size is, the cup doesn't grow because the band size does. Very disappointed!
Something is not quite right...
I've been buying this same brand, style, and size for the past three years. These "look right"; the design and fabric seem the same but there is a definite problem with the fit. They stick out in a strange way on the sides making them both uncomfortable and unattractive as it is noticeable through clothing.
