Finding out which are the best bras for sagging breasts is one of those vital pieces of information that no-one ever tells you! And yet, it’s one of the most important things to know as time rolls by and leaves you less than perky. The only consolation for the effects of aging is to know that you’re not alone and there are lots of ways to improve how you look with the right underwear!
Although no bra brand would dare to advertise their firm support bras as the best bras for ‘sagging’ breasts, there are plenty on the market. But how do you identify them, if even the brand daren’t say the forbidden word? Hmmmm . . . Well, that’s what we’re here for! HerStyleCode does regular bra testing so we can pass on the ‘inside’ information to you.
We recruit teams of ordinary women as testers, and they work their way through a long list of bras until we have a short-list of the best bras in each category. Each tester wears the bra for a minimum of two days and then gives us their honest feedback. And based on that we get a pretty accurate view of which designs give a good result in terms of comfort, support, stylishness, fit, durability and value for money.
So if you want to uplift up your bust, re-discover your waistline and look at least 5 lbs. slimmer, here are the 8 best bras for sagging breasts!

1. Best Overall Bra for Sagging Breasts
Maidenform – Women’s Sport Custom Lift Underwire Bra DM7990
Maidenform bras have cushioned underwires for comfort and uplift. It has special shaping and support that keeps your breasts pointing forwards and towards the center. And their special ‘motion control’ cups give firm hold and minimize bounce. The firm body band help uplift and this bra smoothens back bulges, too.
Our testers absolutely loved this comfortable bra as the best way to improve a sagging bust. The padding tapers from thicker at the bottom, to light at the top edge. This gives you a boost at the bottom, where it’s needed. The thick, soft straps distribute weight well, so you don’t get shoulder pain. And breasts have a fuller, uplifted silhouette!
2. Most Comfortable Bra for Sagging Breasts
Warner’s – Women’s This Is Not a Bra Full-Coverage Underwire Bra
Warner’s bras are very high quality and New York magazine voted this bra, ‘Most Comfortable Bra’. It has the full coverage that’s best for large or sagging busts, because you get more support. The satin-covered underwire creates comfortable uplift. And there’s an adjustable hook and eye fastener for better fit.
Our testers loved the great uplift! The front adjustable straps and graduated padding, which is thicker at the bottom of the cups, are two more popular benefits. The underwire has extra padding and everyone said this really is an extremely comfy bra. The larger sizes have a row of 3 hook and eye fasteners, which stops you getting back bulge!
3. Best Zero Side-Bulge Bra for Sagging Breasts
Olga – Women’s No Side-Effects Underwire Contour Bra
Not only is this a full-coverage, underwired bra, but it also has extra coverage at the sides. The sides and back don’t have any elastic stretch, so your soft body tissue is streamlined. And you get a much sleeker contour. The straps are adjustable from the front and there’s a triple hook and eye fastener, which reduces back bulge.
Our testers said the thin, molded cups were perfect for wearing this bra under a t-shirt or thin blouse. And the very soft, side-panels work well and don’t irritate your skin. The testers with large busts and extra flesh under the arms highly recommended this flattering bra for being a great fit!
4. Best Wire-free Support Bra for Large Sagging Breasts
Playtex – Women’s 18 Hour Ultimate Lift & Support Wire-Free Bra
This is a wire-free bra designed to lift and support a large sagging bust. The cups are molded and lined with jersey fabric to produce a natural, round contour. The straps are cushioned and non-slip, so they stop pressure on your shoulders and promote fit and comfort.
Our testers, up to a size 42 DD and a 40 G, loved the support and uplift they got from this bra. And everyone said this is an exceptionally comfortable bra. And as the sides and back are higher, it prevents side-bulge. Finally, larger sizes benefit from 4-rows of hook and eye fasteners and the super fit.
5. Best No-Bulge Wire-free Bra for Sagging Breasts
Warner’s – Women’s No Side Effects Wire-Free Contour Bra
For small to medium bust sizes, this seamless, wire-free bra is perfect. It has light-padding and is another incredibly comfortable bra. It has extra cushioning to lift, support and shape sagging breasts and the cups fit most women well. The supportive straps are light and front-adjusting. And the body-band fits well to smoothen back bulges.
Our testers were very happy with the look, fit and support of this modern bra. The testers from A – C liked the great fit from the cups and got sufficient side-support. However, this is not recommended for large busts as the sides aren’t strong enough to prevent side bulges.
6. Luxury Bra for Sagging Breasts
PrimaDonna – Deauville Full Cup Bra
This attractive bra has a flattering design and a super-supportive structure. The lightweight cups are triple-lined, with a pretty, lace top section that keeps you cool in hot weather. This bra comes from the upper end of the price scale and has more tailored cups than less expensive styles. It’s a popular and flattering style that’s known for durability, too!
Our testers were delighted with this cute, but highly supportive bra. They found the fabric breathable and very comfortable, and said the cups fit really well. One point is that the sizing runs slightly larger than standard. But in the right size, you get excellent coverage and fit!
7. Best Support for Plus-Size Busts – Bra for Sagging Breasts
Elomi – Women’s Matilda Unlined Plunge Underwire Bra w/ J-Hook
This plus-size bra has a sturdy four-panel cup which creates a rounded shape plus excellent uplift and separation. The look is cute with embroidered detail on the lightweight mesh top and center. The low neckline has a soft elastic edge to get a perfect fit under low-cut tops.
Our testers said this bra gives good side-support and a very comfortable fit. The underwires don’t poke or cause chafing. The embellishment stays looking good after washing, and doesn’t make a bumpy contour under thin clothes. And you can wear the straps as a racer-back, too. Finally, the 4-section cups, and low front, lift and shape the breasts in a flattering way!
8. Best Small Bust Bra for Sagging Breasts
Warner’s – Women’s Easy Does It ‘No Bulge’ Wire-Free Bra
Warner’s bras are excellent for supporting sagging breasts. Generally speaking, we recommend this style for women with a small bust(how to look bigger), who prefer a wire-free design. There are side panels to avoid bulges, for larger breasts, and the fabric doesn’t restrict arm movement. The cup design creates a nice, natural shape and doesn’t flatten your bust.
Our testers said this is a comfortable, lightly padded bra that separates your breasts and doesn’t create a uni-boob look. Broader straps give comfort and better fit. It’s so comfortable and supportive that testers in large cup sizes were really keen on it, as well as the A – C group!
One of the most annoying side-effects of gravity-hit breasts is that you may start to develop an irritating ‘sweat rash’ underneath. This happens most in countries with a hot climate, like Australia and parts of the U.S., in the summer. And even the U.K. has short spells of hot weather, which causes this unsightly problem. However, a good uplifting bra stops this itchy rash.
But speaking from my own experience; when I switched to a full-cup, supportive bra with broad straps to lift my own sagging bust, I instantly re-discovered my waist! So wearing one of these 8 best bras for sagging breasts can be the best way to look slimmer!
