I love my new La Leche League Soft Cup Padded Bra. I have a tough to find size, but Her Room had it. They also send it so well packaged, with tissue paper, that I felt like I was shopping from a popular store. The bra is great because it has a great shape and gives great support even with no underwire. It also is low cut enough to wear without showing under my shirts, but is still modest. The straps are thick and soft and the bra is true to size.
I also love this bra because I had a biopsy done on one of my breasts where they had to remove a lot of breast tissue. Due to breastfeeding that breast is very much smaller than the other, and non padded bras show the difference even under my clothes. This bra holds the shape and smooths over the difference so that its not noticeable. I was so embarrassed about this issue that I considered stopping breastfeeding or getting and prosthesis. But, this bra did the trick and gave me my confidence back. Now I like my post pregnancy curves.
The only reasons I don't give it 5 stars is because its not easy to get the padded cup out of the way when feeding. I have to roll it under, and it usually gets some drool on it. But, the material dries very fast and is easy to spot clean with a burp rag or baby wipe. The second reason I give it 4 stars is that it would be nice have a mesh pocket or something to put my pads in. I used disposables, and they don't stick great to the cup. Since I have to roll the cup up to feed, they sometimes get bunched up when I go to close the bra back up.
Even still, I would buy this bra again and again, and I would recommend it to friends.
