Let’s face it, after 50, bras matter. Small and large breasted women cannot escape gravity. And, as time tugs on us, we are always in the market for a good lift. We’ve found some great bra options for our diverse body types.

Whether you need sexy or just for the gym, you’re going to need the right bra.


Seamless bras are a very new phenomenon, but they are a wonderfully comfortable option. They stretch and shape to your exact body type. The best part about these bras is that you don’t have to deal with pesky underwire digging into your ribs all day. Bras like the Wacoal Flawless Comfort Seamless Underwire Bra are cut in the classic shape of an underwire bra, but the seamless aspect creates a clean line under all of your shirts and dresses. The True Co True Body Wireless Bra is cut more like a shirt, but the extra coverage and lines are built for lasting comfort.


The classic underwire bra takes many shapes. Whether it’s full coverage or minimal coverage, the underwire bra is the most common among the ones you’ll find on the racks. Try the Wacoal Underwire Contour Bra for a classic, shapely, full coverage bra, or the Wacoal Awareness Underwire Bra for a little more of a flowery affect.


Every woman, no matter the age, wants to feel sexy and confident in their underwear. That’s why lace bras, no matter who they are for, are a must have for every woman. I think they become more necessary as you get older, because sexy never goes out of style. For a basic combination of lace and sheer that will make you feel sexy and supportive, the Chantelle Intimates Revele Moi Full Support Underwire Bra is perfect. For a different shape and style of lace, try the Natori Cherry Blossom Convertible Underwire Bra.


Strapless bras are a necessary evil at times, but there is a comfortable way to go about them that will keep the girls in place, without the pesky task of making sure your bra hasn’t fallen to your waist. The Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra provides the basic outline for a strapless bra. It’s lined with adhesive so that it stays secure all night long. It also has removable straps so that you can wear it with any outfit. The Wacoal Halo Convertible Underwire Bra provides the same concept, but with a little added sex appeal.

Sports Bra

For the more active over 50 female, you’re going to need a sports bra that fits to your size and needs. If there isn’t enough support, there can be a wardrobe malfunction at any time. If there is too much coverage, it can squeeze, and squish your boobs and make for a very uncomfortable gym experience. Try the Nike Pro Classic Dri Fit Padded Sports Bra or the Zella Body Fusion Sports Bra.


For a compromise between fashion and function, the bralette is for you. You can be sexy in lace, without all the structure of an underwire bra. This allows you to keep the girls in place and feeling comfortable, without having to reach for something like a sports bra. That is what makes the Free People Intimately FP Lina Bralette and the Lively The Long-lined Lace Bralette such optimal choice for any given day.
