This bra is good, but not my favorite. It gives a droopy silhouette but it's passable under certain nursing tops. I just don't prefer it under fitted t-shirts. It is very comfortable. The straps also tend to stretch more than I'd like. RHN from San Antonio, TX

The sling was too snug and the cups too loose and pointy for me giving a madonna conebra look. I also found that the mesh on this bra was stiff and itchy although it may soften after a few washes. The sides were bunching as well. mamaoftwo from Ft. Riley

Lacks support and good holding. I feel like I am wearing a sports bra.

La Leche League Response: This item is similar to a sport bra. If you are looking for more support, I suggest an underwire with wider straps. Theresa from Wilton WI US

The straps run long and have a short adjustment range. The cup size runs large. Construction is solid and material is soft to the touch. Overall good value.

La Leche League Response: I would suggest you go down a cup size. This is one of our top selling styles. A Jenkins from Atlanta

I read the reviews before purchasing this bra. This is my 3rd child, so I know what to look for in a nursing bra. Due to my size, I have had great difficulty finding supportive nursing bras in the past. From the reviews it seemed as though the women who had trouble with the fit of this bra were most likely in the wrong size, or didn't have experience with how a nursing bra is supposed to fit. However, when I tried this bra on 1) the straps were way too long to offer any support, 2) the cups were slightly too big (I assume to allow some expansion for engorgement and pads) but allowed my breasts to flop over,which while nursing could possibly cause plugged ducts. The fabric was very soft and felt good, and the band fit snugly but not tight. Unfortunately, the problems with this bra outweighed the good for my needs and I will be returning it.

La Leche League Response: It sounds like you may be wearing a cup size too big. Usually customers love the generous but comfortable fit. The straps are too long because I believe you are wearing a cup size too big. Elaine from Midland/TX/USA

The fabric is soft enough, but even though my other 36G bras have had ample room for my full breasts - even a little roomy in some, this bra got tight and a bit uncomfortable after a few hours of wearing it. I'm keeping it anyway because it was a little more comfy with a back extender on and I am hoping that as the baby "drops" and postpartum it may be better.

La Leche League Response: We are sorry to hear you were not completely satisfied with your purchase. By the sounds of it, we think you may want to go up one band size to a 38G for a more comfortable fit. E from New Orleans/ LA/USA

It's not pretty, but it's practical. A fair amount of lift for there not being an underwire. The elastic on the straps seems to slide if I try to wear it too long between washings. MamaRama

This is probably one of the best nursing bras I've been able to find. Having a large bust doesn't leave many options and what it does it usually ugly, uncomfortable or unflattering. I really like the fit and the fabric of this bra. It doesn't provide the greatest shaping, but I've made do with far worse. I will probably order another. I wish it came in more colors.

I finally found a bra online that fits! While this bra borders on almost too much coverage (I'm not crazy about how high it comes up in the middle) it is great for when I go out walking/snowshoeing. It is a very comfortable fit and the material is nice. If it came in more colors, I would likely buy another. Wendy from Lyman, NH

This bra is absolutely WONDEEFUL? I originally ordered it to try it because the nursing bra I used with my first son (two years ago) had been discontinued. I was very pleased! So pleased that I went back and ordered two more! Being a 36DD makes sleeping on my side a complicated task because one of the "girls" was always falling out. Combine that with leaking and it just wasn't a pleasant experience. This bra fits similar to a sports bra but you get way more support, even while sleeping on your side. I also use the nursing pads and they stay in place great with this bra. I highly recommend this nursing bra as it is the most comfortable one I have found! Dana from Maryland

I wear it 24/7. Very comfortable. Supportive compared to other no-wire nursing bras. E from DC

This garment fits well and is very supportive but needs to have some type of padding over the metal rings, so they don't imbed into your skin. Misty from Lake City, Arkansas, US

Straps are too long even after being adjusted all the way. And once adjusted the straps slide throughout the day. Not enough support for the weight of my breasts. But it is a comfortable bra and good enough for sleeping. I also like the quick clips for nursing. Much easier than hook and eye. Katie from Addison, NY

Fits comfortably and is supportive. The sides tend to bunch up on me. Not sure if this will be a problem once my milk comes in. Erin from Plover/WI/USA

The straps are way too long. I do like the fabric and the ease of the clip for opening the bra for nursing. amy from conneaut lake, pa

This bra is poorly constructed and fits horribly. The straps are way too long, even when I adjust them down to the smallest possible length. They provide no lift and support and eventually slip to a larger length, causing you to have to adjust them constantly. I was recently fitted at a department store to be a 40G and have several bras in size 40G that fit wonderfully, but this bra in a 40G was way too big. It is not true to size at all. I tried ordering the 38DDD, but it still did not fit properly and the straps were way too long again. The seaming down the front of the cups ripples and looks awful under clothes and the sewing construction is appalling and therefore makes for a really uncomfortable bra. A lot of the materials used are itchy and some of the seams dug in in places.

HerRoom Response: Maternity bras generally have a deeper cup to allow for breast expansion as milk come in. It also allows the wearer to use pads.

La Leche Response:We apologize for this problem with the 4112. La Leche League designed this bra over 18 months and hasn't had any prior problems with the fit. We fit the bra again on our 38C model last week and it fit her well. The cups were made slightly bigger on this nursing bra because usually there is not enough room for expansion for milk production and nursing pads so they allowed for that. Rebecca from MN

There are so many problems with this bra, I don't know where to start. The one plus is that the fabric is very soft and extremely comfortable on the skin.

1 - Bra seems to run large. I had been professionally measured & bought the correct size, but the cups were too large. 2 - The band curls under and will not lie flat. The rolling is highly uncomfortable against the rib cage. 3 - The shoulder straps are too long, and can not be shortened enough to provide proper support. I am 5'4, and have never had a problem with too-long straps in any other bra. 4 - Absolutely no support. This is likely due to the straps being too long, but thought I'd still mention it.

I really wish I had returned this bra. I kept it thinking I might use it to sleep in since the fabric was so comfortable, but the band rolling up made it too uncomfortable for night time.

La Leche Response:La Leche League did make the cup a bit fuller than their usual nursing bras because they received numerous complaints that their nursing bras were running small, especially on full figure and if a woman wanted to put in a nursing pad. They also changed the direction of the bottom cup because they felt the stretch needed to go the other direction. They are looking into making sure the fit is correct and that the patterns haven't changed, the sewing hasn't changed, and the lamination hasn't changed. De from VA

This was an okay bra. The only problem I had with it was that it was on the itchy side. I returned it so I'm not sure if it would be better after it was washed or not. I was looking for something to sleep in and for that I need total comfort.

HerRoom Response: We hear the itchy issue often with cotton bras. Manufacturers need to put a sizing in the cotton so that it sews better. A wash or two usually removes the itchy feeling. Megan from Nebraska

Bra strap broke within one week of use, where the shoulder attaches to the "buckle" in front. I had used it only three times. Very disappointed.

La Leche Response: I have been wearing that bra to exercise and jog in with no problems. Look at the size. Is it possible she had too much weight on it – although it still should not break. I wish she would have given us more information. Erica from Madison, MS, USA
