Saggy Boobs... Looking for a good "LIFT" Bra... anybody got any suggestions?

23 posts in this topic

Question for the Ladies........ Sorry, Fellas... pretty sure you won't have any input unless your work in a Intimates Store... LOL... :)

I've always had big boobs... DD/DDD's since the age of 11...LOL... well, maybe not that far back, but seems that way. I've told everyone that I think I lost my first 29 lbs from my boobs and my feet! LOL... They've never been the perkiest things, but seem a little worse now... I'm looking for a GOOD bra that helps with lift... I know I need to go get "fitted" to see what size I am exactly, but my guess is a 40 DD...

My friend keeps suggesting that I go to Victoria's secret... I'm sooooo not there yet... LOL... Even though they say they have a 40 DD, I'm thinking THEIR 40 DD may not be the same size as other 40 DD's... lol...

Anybody found a good bra that does miracle work?!?!? :)

Unless I hit the lottery soon - I won't be getting a boob job so I need to find something that works! :)

Thanks! :)

I bought some Balis that I really, really like for that reason. I was an underwire girl before, but bought some without underwires for after surgery. This Bali style does the trick without wires!!! They are also seamless, which I think is a MUST under t-shirts. See if this link works:

Ech, Victoria's Secret stuff is junk and they can't measure properly to save their lives.

For the past 10 years I have gone between a 38F-40L, so I think I know a thing or two about getting amazing bras. I highly recommend Goddess or Elila bras which have amazing adjustable straps that you can use to lift yourself up.

I started only wearing those brands after being fitted by real specialists on the lower east side in NYC. Amazing! When you pick up your boobs properly it gives such a nice shape!

As of this morning I've lost 48 pounds and almost nothing in the boobs!!! :mad:

OMG, Mirabelle... you poor soul! I will never whine again! An F to an L!!! I can't even imagine!

Thanks very much for the brand names... I will look them up NOW!

Congrats on your weightloss... here's hoping you lose some in your boobs very very soon! :)

Take Care!

Lol, even this morning I am wearing my 38L and it is just barely showing signs that it may be a little on the big size. I have been thinking about getting a reduction for years and years, but my bariatric surgeon told me he is pretty sure I won't need it after the surgery...yeah we will see about that!

One thing I should mention about the Goddess bras, they are not pretty, but look amazing under clothing. The first time I was fitted for one (I had been wearing Victoria's Secret DDs that totally did not fit!!) I was so amazed at the difference and couldn't stop looking in the mirror.

Wow I just realized that I am about 10 pounds away from how much I weighed the first time I got that Goddess bra ( 8 years ago, it was an FF) and I see no signs of fitting into an FF anytime soon...funny how over time we lose and gain in different places!

After losing all the weight that you're going to - you may need that reduction anyway. Sounds like you have some stubborn boobs, Girl! LOL... In all my years of yo-yo dieting... the boobs was always the first place I lost! Here's hoping that your Dr. is right! No more surgery! :)

I found the Goddess bras and am looking through them now... any particular style you recommend? I think I'm going to order one & see how it works! :)

I looked, but doesn't appear to be a store close to me that sells them... so I'll just order one online. I'm such an "instant gratification" kinda girl... I'll be waiting IMPATIENTLY for it to get here! LOL

I also wear a 40 DD. Always have had a big chest, even as a size 10. I personally like the Breezies Brand Bra's from QVC. They are very comfy and even though they lift, they don't shove ur boobs together. I can't stand that. Only girls with smaller chests, want that from a bra. But, Lord have mercy, the rest of us have cleavege to spare. They wick moisture away from you, too. And inexpensive. I just ordered 2 more for work in a couple weeks. Oh, and look for something with a molded cup(NOT PADDED) just light molding. It add a lot of support to lift big and not-as-perky-as-they-used-to-be boobs. Keep that tip in mind, no matter what brand you decide to go with. oh, and if you do decide to go with QVC, you can return them within 30 days and a lot of their stuff they let you do "easy payments" (monthly small installments) might be $15 this month and then $15 next month. Thats how I afford to get a couple at a time.

Thanks for the info Rossigrl! :) I love QVC and I have seen those bras!! Good to know they work... I'll go out to QVC's website and see what they have. Size 10 & DD's... Oh geez... lol... I'm sure I've lost all that I'm losing in mine so they'll probably stay the size they are now. I've always been large in that area - no matter what my size!

Thanks again for the info! :)

I'm glad that some people have kept their boobs. I went from a 42 D to a 36 B. There just "ain't" much there. LOL

Hey Kim, See you are in the same boat... I am losing so much so fast, I bought a cheap one at Wal-mart, because I figured it isn't going to fit much longer either. BUT, I was wearing a 44 DDD and so I bought a 42 DD and it is a little snug. I don't know how......cause it is very obvious I have lost there. But for a cheap bra, I am impressed, it holds them up very well.

Now I need to figure out what undies size I need. I look like droopy drawers...lol. I can't return those if they don't fit, and I have no idea what to get....lol

For those who are losing in the chest, I would like to suggest getting "temporary" bras from a nice women's consignment shop if you have one nearby. Luckily, there is one about 45 minutes from me for sizes 12 and up. I have gotten several nice bras there to hold me over until I stop losing. I've gone from a 44D or 44 DD (depending on the bra) to a 36C now. The hubby is devastated, but it feels better to me! I'd never had a Vanity Fair bra before, but I got one at this consignment shop and it's now my favorite bra. I got a Victoria's Secret one and it's not so great. Too low cut across the top of the breast area for me.

Some folks don't want to wear used things like that so I guess it's personal preference...but if it's a nice shop and the bra is in great condition I'd wear it!

Lane Bryant has great bras too! I believe Lane Bryant and Victoria's Secret are sister companies.

I would suggest going to Nordstroms or macy's and get fitted... having a good bra with decent support will help with sagging...

Hey Girlie! Everything is going quite well! :) And yes, the bra's and the undies are becoming an issue... LOL...

Sadly, but lucky for me... I have clothing that runs from a size 16 up... so I'm doing pretty good as far as that goes. I don't have a lot of things, but enough to get by.

My 3 month check-up is next week. I had to change it because we were going to be out of town. Did you go to yours??!!? I'm a little anxious about my bloodwork. I've missed a few of my vitamins here and there... so hoping it's not too much.

Let me know how yours went!!! Take Care!

PS... I'm hoping to not lose too much of my boobs... kinda like them... nice assett! LOL... NOW... I do need to work on TONING... ugh... still have a ways to go to meet my goal, but definitely determined... :)

So a good friend tells me yesterday, "You are really losing the weight, so now you're going to have to get a really good lift bra." I just agreed and went on. When I told my mom and laughed about it, she says, "Well, she's right. I didn't want to say anything,but you look like you have the boobs of an 80-year-old woman!" Now given I think my mom is a tad jealous, but also I guess my Balis aren't doing the job I thought!

Kim, did you go to your 3 month? I had no vitamin deficiencies pre-op, so I don't get checked again until 6 months. I was on track with their "norm," so I'm hoping to lose the excess in a year, as the surgeon and I originally set a goal for.

When I lost half my goal I went to VC and got a bombshell bra and I absolutely love it. I did find some nice bras at Kohl's to, but there is nothing like a Bombshell :) My favorite part of buying this bra was the treatment I got at VC. It was a really fun shopping trip.

Hi Kim! Too funny about the 80 year old comment! That's exactly what I felt like. What I ended up doing was going into a Bali, Hanes Outlet and I found these Bali "lift" bra's... amazing! A HUGE difference. I'll get the exact style & post soon... I bought three! A black, taupe and white. I love them! So - maybe it's just a different style you need because I'm loving these Bali's!!!

My 3 month check-up went very well! Only thing they want me to do is eat more protein! Oh my! I was doing the best I could, but guess I needed to step it up more... which I've tried to do since then. I wasn't "Low" but I was one number off from the normal/low end - if that makes sense. So - trying to get more protein.

I was at a stand still for almost two weeks... which had me a bit bummed, but I'm in the gym 3 days a week and with the increase in protein... it's starting to melt off again... ;)

Hope things are good for you this week! :)

How ironic!!! I was shopping on Saturday and picked those bras up and could not decide. Kohl's had them on sale and I had a 15% off coupon. I didn't feel like trying them on, so I hung them back up. Now I will make an effort to try them on.

I don't know about you, but I have a tough time getting protein from my food. I have been drinking Syntrax Nectar, especially on days I go to the gym or days I have band rehearsal after school. I'm also doing the gym 3 days a week.

Glad to hear all is going well with you. Keep up the good work and you will get great results!

I wasn't blessed with very large boobs (like 44 C or D was my largest) but i know there are some really cute 40 DD bras there that I always wish came in my boobie size. but i am going to have to go get new bras soon anyway cuz mine are starting to get too big! Oh well. we win some and we lose a lot lol.
