sagging breasts

There’s no doubt about it: Sagging in the bust department can be a real bummer. Many women are affected by this issue for a wide variety of reasons, including menopause, significant weight loss, genetics, or mere age (and, let’s face it, gravity). Not wearing a supportive bra can also contribute to sagging, which is why it’s crucial to find the right undergarments. While a bra won’t necessarily solve the sag, it will make your breasts appear lifted while also preventing the problem from worsening.

So, which are the best bra features for breasts that have started to droop? Here are our top recommendations: 

Marion Unlined Wire Bra

As far as supportive features go, underwire is pretty crucial. A wireless bra often doesn’t offer the same lift as a wired bra. An unlined wire bra will provide plenty of lift to counteract the sagging, and those who prefer to go padding-free will appreciate the lightweight design, which lends a natural shape to the breasts.

Ever notice horizontal or vertical seams along the cups of a bra? It may seem like a subtle detail, but a multi-part cup bra, sometimes known as a three-part cup bra or four-part cup bra depending on the number of cup parts, is designed to give your breasts a lifted, supported, and defined shape. Many full-busted women love these bras because they provide lift and separation without making their boobs look bigger than they are.

If you’re seeking a super smooth, rounded shape in addition to some lift for sagging breasts, a contour underwire bra is an ideal selection. This style can sculpt your breasts into a more rounded, symmetrical shape while also ensuring they’re adequately supported.

Another great choice? The Charlotte Padded Bra, with its low demi styling, adjustable wide set straps, and multi-part foam cups encased in luxe satin.

Matilda Push-Up Bra

If your boobs are lacking fullness up top, a push-up bra might be just what you need. Push-up bras are designed with strategically placed padding to lift boobs up. By lifting and centering breast tissue, push-up bras create a rounded and symmetrical shape.


Any of the aforementioned bra features will certainly prove helpful — however, there are a few other considerations to keep in mind when it comes to sagging breasts. As the band provides the majority of the support, make sure the bra’s band is sturdy and includes multiple rows of adjustable hook-and-eye closures for a perfect fit. You’ll definitely want to make sure you’re wearing the correct band size — if it’s too big, it will only contribute to the sagging issue. When you purchase the bra, you should be able to comfortably sport it on the loosest closure (that way, you can tighten as it stretches over time, meaning you’ll get more wear out of it). Adjustable shoulder straps are also key in terms of providing sufficient lift, as well as achieving a customized fit.
