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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
