Leading Lady Cotton Front Hook Leisure Bra
It has everything I love!
I have been wearing front closure bras for 30 years and can't figure out why anyone would still be fighting a back closure. In the Coastal Bend of Texas the heat & humidity cause nylon bras to be a constant irritation. This bra is easy to put on, the all cotton fabric does not irritate and it fits perfectly. I have thrown everything else in the trash.

Glad I found this bra on my fourth try
I'm another lady in her sixties who goes braless most of the time because it's so hard to find a bra that fits; using the manufacturer of this bra's chart (Leading Lady), I am a 48B. JMS would measure me a 50A. Using a bra extender doesn't work as my straps then slip off my shoulders!
I finally accepted that I would need to persevere and pay return postage to find the right bra at the best price. My first buys were made before I read that women with sagging breasts should avoid seamless and molded bras. The Leading Lady Wirefree Molded Bra didn't work for me.
These same sites advise that nonadjustable straps are not a good idea if one needs lots of support. Also good advice, but not applicable to me.
I bought the Leading Lady cotton leisure bra in size 8A (50AB) and the cup was huge, while the back rode up--which meant the band should be smaller for me.
On my fourth try, I bought the same bra in size 7A (48AB) and found the bra I was looking for-- a comfortable bra that provides some lift and support. This is the first bra I've had where the band doesn't double up! The front hooks are nice, and I follow the advice of another reviewer and usually close only the 5 lower hooks. I bought pink for under light colors and the polka dot black for under darker colors--it's more fun to wear than all black.
Finally, because this comfortable bra is unlined, I use silicone nipple covers under it, when "show-through" would be a concern . Another problem solved!

Most comfortable bra EVER!
I love this bra so much I have re-ordered it again and again. It has NO PLASTIC pieces to break. The straps are continuous. I'm 56 and I do not need to adjust my bra. I love that they are coming out with more colors. I am wearing a gray/silver dress to my son's wedding and the heather grey matches perfectly, so I don't have to worry about my straps showing. This bra has no padding. I DON'T WANT PADDING - so hurray! Customer Service bring on more, varied, bright colors in this style. This new pattern is cute, but I'm looking to blend in with my clothes.

This bra fits well, is made of a lovely, soft material and the straps are wide enough that they don't dig into your shoulders as many other bras do. Wearing a bra is not one of my favorite pieces of clothing - but this bra is among the best. I'm glad I tried it. I've ordered more of them so I can select it more often.
