Best Bra for Saggy Breasts after Weight Loss

With the new year upon us (hello 2022, be kind to us!), and weight loss most likely a goal for a lot of us who over indulged over the holiday period it made me think of a question us Bra Fitter’s get a lot. That being “What is the best bra for saggy breasts after weight loss?”. 

It’s true, our breasts can change after dramatic weight loss. Or even, not so dramatic weight loss. Our boobs can change in both size (dah!)  and density.  This article with guide you through some FAQ’s and some of my recommendations for products.

Why have my boobs changed shape after weight loss?

For almost all women, particularly overweight women, their breasts will be made up of some fatty tissue in addition to of course breast tissue. When we lose weight we will typically shed fat, which could reduce the overall size of our breasts. If our breasts had a high percentage of fat then we can expect to lose some of this with dramatic weight loss. This can result in our breasts looking deflated and lacking shape. 

If our breasts have had a high percentage of fat for a long period our overlying skin will have adapted and stretched to accomodate this. Unfortunately our skin does not have the ability to rebound once it has been stretched beyond a point. 

It’s this that can lead to excessively sagging breasts, with the skin to breast ratio no longer being proportionate.  

What features should I look for in a Bra for saggy breasts?

Sagging breasts will be very jiggly, floppy and lack structure. For this women need two things: Structure and Compression. 

These features will help to achieve this…

My shape is still changing. What bra will go on a sizing journey with me?

It’s definitely best to avoid underwire if your shape is still changing. Choosing a style with the aforementioned features; stretch resistant, full coverage, strong straps, compression and light molding is a great idea. 

Underwire is not recommended as these styles don’t go on a sizing journey. 

A compression style bra will lock your breasts against your chest wall and will cope with changes in size better than a traditional bra with “deep cups”. 

The most important thing is that your bra has adjustability. By that I mean, you can adjust the straps and back size to a smaller size. This will help cope with a size or two change.  

Remember, there is no one bra that is going to fit you perfectly during dramatic shape change (don’t believe what you see in those viral ads!). It’s about selecting an option to cope with some variation in size. You will need to get more bras after significant weight change.

How this bra fits

I generally find this style to fit true to size. It can be reported as fitting small around the ribcage. But remember, we want a nice snug fit to ensure strong support (and lifespan if we are still shrinking!).

MagicLift Front Closure Bra Review

Ok, so it’s no secret that I am a big fan of front closure bras (hence my domain name!). So I just had to include one of my faves, in this list of recommendations for  “saggy boobs”. To be honest, this bra is incredibly similar to the style above. They have the same shape cup with just a few differences like the obvious closure mechanism.

How this bra fits

This version of the MagicLift can fit a tad roomy in the cup. If in doubt, size down (eg if you are sometimes an F and sometimes a G, then choose the F). 
Don’t be tempted to go up a size around the ribcage as this is where the support comes from and with no adjustability (as is common for front closure bras) . It’s best for this too be a tad too firm to start with as it will have some give with wear and you don’t want that to compromise support.

Another almost perfect result agreed by me and the glamorise reviewers! Here’s a full review I wrote about the MagicLift Front Closure Bra.

How this bra fits

Like most Panache Lingerie bras the Andorra Non Wired can run a bit firm around the ribcage. Stick to your usual size unless you find yourself between sizes in which case size up. The cups fit true to size but run on European sizing so use a bra size chart to convert to your US size.

How this bra fits

This is a german brand, Anita Active. They use a different cup size system, ommiting the DD and DDD. For this reason if you are a DD please select a size E. If you are a DDD please select a size F. If you are a E please select a size G. If you are a EE/F please select a size H. 

The band that runs around the ribcage is made of a very strong stretch resistant material (which is GREAT for sports!). If you are between sizes I recommend sizing up in the band size (eg 38)

Wacoal How Perfect Soft Cup Bra Review

For petite frame women that need a bra to support saggint breasts after weight loss, they’ll suffer the same challenges as larger bodied ladies – only on a smaller scale. The low breast density and floppy overlying skin with do best in a structured lightly compressive bra with a full cup. Althought I don’t have this style available to me in. the fitting room it does tick all the boxes so i think it’s a great recommendation.

How this bra fits

Most people report this style fits true to size, with the most common annomly to that being that the cup fits a bit small. In this style bra (with a shallow cup) it’s usually best to go up a cup size if in doubt

A note about how our size can change with weight gain or loss...

It’s likely that even a 7 pound weightloss or gain will technically change your bra size. However, how it will change will depend on where you, as a unique individual, tend to lose weight. 

Sometimes people who don’t actually lose weight from their breasts easily, will actually GO UP a cup size or two with weight loss. This is because if their frame size gets smaller (say goes from a 42 > 38), but their breasts stay the same, they will technically need to go up two cup sizes. If that sounds strange to you then you MUST read this article about ‘How Bra Sizing Works’.
