I share a lot of clothing options on a day-to-day basis, but let’s face it, ladies… you need the right foundation beneath your clothing, or your outfit is going to fall flat. Different styles of tops and dresses call for a variety of bras depending on their neckline, what material they are made out of, how low the neckline goes, and a whole list of other factors. Today, we are talking about seven different kinds of bras every woman over 50 should own, and the ones I keep in my rotation so that I can start the day with the proper foundation under every outfit.
Bras Every Woman Over 50 Need For A Complete Wardrobe
This bra does an excellent job with side and back coverage, plus the cups are lined well for “no-show” issues. You also can’t see the bra under my shirt, so it is great for wearing under a t-shirt or top that fits tight. There is hardly any back bulge with this bra, and that is not an easy feat. The website says that the straps are convertible, but I honestly haven’t even noticed that or tried it to see. I have the Butterscotch color, and I love this color. Depending on your size, this bra will run between $28 to $51, so you will have to put in your size to see the exact price.
This is my go-to bra for everyday wear! I swear by the bra-llelujah from Spanx because it fits great, has wide straps, and does a great job of controlling my back fat. I have it in nude, so I can wear it under my white tops. Plus, the front closure makes getting it on and off a breeze. If you have a larger chest or are just a fan of underwire, this bra also comes in an underwire version.
For the occasions when you are going to be wearing a halter, one-shoulder, or strapless top or dress (like the ones I shared on Monday), you’ll need a comfortable strapless bra that stays put! Because I loved my everyday bra by SPANX, I decided to try the strapless one also. I find that it is as comfortable as a strapless bra can be and doesn’t slip or slide, even in hot weather when I’m sweating.
As much as I’d love to go braless on my days at home, I wouldn’t feel comfortable opening the door to greet a delivery driver or a neighbor coming to say hello without any coverage at all! Insert this buttery soft lounge bra by True and Co. that’s so comfy you barely feel like you’re wearing a bra.
This racerback sports bra will hold the girls in place while offering full coverage during your daily workout or walk. They are medium support, so I wouldn’t recommend them for high-intensity running and workouts with lots of jumping, but they are great for walking, hiking, yoga, pilates, Zumba, etc. On top of support, they are flattering without the flattening aspect that most sports bras give, and you cannot beat the affordable price (4 for under $40!).
If you have ever had an operation done, you know how uncomfortable life can be for the days and weeks following surgery. This bra comes highly recommended as they are soft, breathable, and easy to put on using the front hook and eye closures.
While these are not technically a bra, they’re still a must in my undergarment list! They are amazing for when your outfit won’t allow you to wear a bra (like a top or dress with a low back), but you still want the modesty. I’ve tried many brands, but these are the best that I’ve found. You can even put them under your swimsuit if you want for a little extra coverage.
There you have it, the top seven bras every woman over 50 should own. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these, or what bra you like instead.
