I Read Hundreds of Reviews—These 22 Affordable Bras Have the Highest Ratings


(Image credit: @stellasimona)

Let's be honest: Nothing is more humbling in life than shopping for a bra. Even those who know their way around a department store will tell you that all bets are off once you hit the lingerie section. You could be the most knowledgeable shopper and still find the process humiliating sometimes. Because unlike picking the perfect pair of jeans, bras require much more effort on our part. Not only do you have to go through the cumbersome process of finding the right bra size—which often requires a sweet but semi-awkward encounter with a sales associate to go through the measuring process—but even if you've found that "perfect size," there's no guarantee that all variations in sizing from brand to brand will match. 

On top of that, it can be hard to discern what type of bra fits your everyday needs when there are so many on the market. If all of that weren't stressful enough, there's the final most pressing matter: your wallet. Bras aren't cheap, so shopping for one on a budget can be extra stressful. In short, it's safe to bra shopping isn't always it, but there's one way to make it easier: reading online reviews. It might sound simple enough, but we cannot stress enough how much this simple action can take away most of the stress around the process.

If, however, you're not patient enough to scour hundreds of reviews, don't fret. Ahead, we took the liberty of rounding up the 22 best affordable bras, all under $60. Considering real shoppers' reviews, quality, size range, and functionality, we compiled a list of underpinnings that prove bra shopping can be, at minimum, bearable and, dare we say, semi-enjoyable. So without further ado, let's get into it.

Underwire Bras

Generally speaking, if you want an undergarment to provide support and lift, you want to opt for an underwire bra. Although there are many on the market that cater to specific needs, these are some of the best you can buy on a budget.

1. Best Affordable Bra Overall: Savage X Fenty

Rating: 4.4/5

Material: 78% Recycled Nylon, 22% Elastane

Size Range: 30A-46H

Color Range: Black, Tan, Dark Brown, Purple, Yellow, and Prints

Review Highlight: "I haven't worn a lined bra in a very long time due to them usually not fitting, but this one has exceeded my expectations! Everything about this bra is comfortable—the material is soft, even on the straps; nothing digs into your skin, and there are no air pockets. It's amazing all-around."

2. Best Affordable Bra for a Tight Budget: Warner's 

Rating: 4.5 /5 

Material: 88% Polyester, 12% Elastane 

Size Range: 34B-40D

Color Range: Black, white, tan, lilac, pink, mint, blue

Review Highlight: "I've tried so many full coverage bras, t-shirt bras, even minimizing bras, but nothing would fit right—until I found this one! It looks under all clothing; even with thin materials, there's no sight of boob slippage. Ordering another one right now!"

3. Best Affordable T-Shirt Bra: Bali

Rating: 4.3/5

Material: 88% Polyester, 12% Spandex

Size Range: 34B-42D

Color Range: Over 10+ colorway options, including navy, black, grey, and white. 

Review Highlight: "I recently purchased this bra, and I couldn't be happier. These bras have truly exceeded my expectations in terms of comfort, support, and versatility. First and foremost, the fit is absolutely perfect. As someone who has struggled to find bras that provide both comfort and support, this is a game-changer. The 40D size not only fits like a dream but also gives my bust a flattering and natural shape. The straps are adjustable, ensuring a customizable fit that keeps me comfortable all day long. What sets these bras apart from others I've tried is their ultra-lightweight design. I can hardly feel that I'm wearing a bra at all, which is a welcome change from the often cumbersome options on the market. Despite their featherlight feel, these bras provide excellent support, making them suitable for both everyday wear and special occasions."

4. Best Affordable Underwire Bra: B.tempt'd

Material: 77% Nylon, 23% Spandex

Size Range: 28B-40DDD

Color Range: Over 20+ colorways, including nude, black, white, pink, baby blue, and red. 

Review Highlight: "B.tempt’d's line of bras from Wacoal is a nice value for the money. They are silky soft, wash well, and offer a nice range of colors. I love this bra because it keeps my 38DDDs in place without spillage. It creates a smooth silhouette that I can wear with T-shirts and my professional attire. Plus, the underwire is comfortable for most of the day."

Rating: 4.5/5

Material: 65% Recycled Polyamide, 35% Elastane 

Size Range: 30A-42G

Color Range: Over 30+ colorways, including black, tan, beige, white, and leopard. 

Review Highlight: "This is a beautiful bra as it provides true support and lift for the girls. It's a must-buy. Plus, the straps make the bra look even better on."

6. Best Affordable Unlined Bra: Harper Wilde

Rating: 4.4/5

Material: 68% Nylon, 32% Elastane

Size Range: 32A-42F

Color Range: Beige, tan, brown, black, green, blue

Review Highlight: "I have struggled to find a comfortable wired bra that doesn't make me want to rip it off in the middle of the day—until I found this bra! I can wear it all day and feel like there's nothing on. It's a miracle because usually, my shoulders end up hurting by the end of the day with other bras, but that's not the case with this one. I also wasn't too sure about it being unlined, as sometimes they're unflattering, but this one gives the perfect amount of lift and shape!"

Solution-Catered Bras

Beyond having a great everyday underwire bra, you might be looking for an option that caters to a specific need—e.g., you could need a strapless option, one for side support, a nursing bra, or one with a more inclusive cup range. Ahead, we're sharing some of the best bras to fit those needs without having to spend a fortune. 

7. Best Affordable Strapless Bra: Skims

Rating: 4.3/5

Material: 84% Nylon and 16% Spandex 

Size Range: 30A-46H

Color Range: Nude, black, chocolate brown, light blue, and white

Review Highlight: " I love this bra. I am breastfeeding, so I needed a soft cup strapless bra—I will replace all my other strapless bras with this one. It’s so comfortable, I could wear it all day and night."

8. Best Affordable Convertible Bra: Maidenform

Rating: 4.2/5

Material: Nylon/elastane

Size Range: 32B-40D

Color Range: White, sand, tan, black, creme, and various prints. 

Review Highlight: "I recently purchased this bra and couldn't be happier! It has been a game-changer for me, providing comfort and style that surpassed my expectations. Firstly, the fit is absolutely amazing. It provides the perfect amount of support while enhancing my natural shape. The push-up feature adds a subtle lift, making me feel confident and feminine in any outfit I wear. The adjustable and convertible straps are a great bonus, allowing me to customize the fit to suit different outfits and shoulder styles. The smooth, seamless cups are a dream, creating a seamless appearance under even the thinnest of fabrics. Whether I'm wearing a t-shirt, a blouse, or a dress, this bra ensures a flawless look every time."

9. Best Affordable Bra for Larger Cup Sizes: Goddess

Rating: 4.4/5

Material: 61% Polyester, 30% Nylon, 9% Elastane 

Size Range: 34I-46K

Color Range: Over 20+ colorways, including white, pale pink, black, eggplant, and pebble gray. 

Review Highlight: This bra is a godsend! It's my new daily underwire bra because it fits my "omega boobs" perfectly—all the breast tissue fits into the cup where it belongs. The center gore is just the right height for me (I have a short torso), and the "belly cutout" is fantastic because it allows it to sit comfortably on the stomach. The straps are comfortable, with just enough "give" to not dig into my shoulders and enough "flex" to keep "the girls" where they should be."

10. Best Affordable Bra for Small Cup Sizes: Pepper

Rating: 4.7/5

Material: 75% Polyamide, 25% Elastane

Size Range: 30AA-42B

Color Range: Over 10+ colorways, including ecru, black, nude, and violet. 

Review Highlight: "I always get so worried purchasing clothing online, but Pepper's measuring guide is right on the money. These bras are amazing. I finally feel like I'm not constantly having to adjust my bra; it also boosts the little I have there. Don't question your decision… buy some now!"

11. Best Affordable Nursing Bra: Bravado Designs 

Rating: 4.4/5

Material: 70% recycled nylon, 20% nylon, 10% spandex 

Size Range: Small to Extra Large

Color Range: Over ten colorways, including black, grey, white, and rose. 

Review Highlight: "I bought my first Bravado Designer bra while still pregnant. It was so comfortable I couldn't believe I was using other nursing bras. Then, after the baby came, I bought a few in each color and threw out the other nursing bras I owned. I like the cups, which give shape, and the straps, which give support. I can wear all my pre-pregnancy clothes with this bra—something I couldn't do with other bras. It's so comfortable, I even sleep in this rather than a sleep bra."

12. Best Front-Closure Affordable Bra: Fruit of the Loom

Rating: 4.3/5

Material: 94% Nylon, 6% Spandex

Size Range: 34-38 (no cup sizes)

Color Range: Over 10+ colorways, including black, white, gray, pink, and mismatched sets. 

Review Highlight: "I had a bilateral mastectomy, and the hospital sent me home in a surgical compression bra. Once my incisions were healed and the sutures were gone, I was permitted to switch to a less restrictive, more comfortable option. As for someone trying to wear bras post-surgery, reaching around to back close bras is either very difficult to impossible and potentially painful. However, this bra was highly recommended by an individual in a Facebook support group—they were not wrong. These are so soft and comfortable, like slipping into your favorite worn, cozy t-shirt. They don't irritate surgical incision sites or compress too tightly; they just provide minimal support needed in the early stages. They also fasten in the front, which is essential."

13. Best Wireless Minimizing Bra: Lively 

Rating: 4.6/5

Material: 78% Nylon, 22% Spandex

Size Range: 32C-40G

Color Range: Black and nude

Review Highlight: "This bra is amazing. I don't think I've ever said that about a bra...ever. It's comfortable and does exactly what Lively claims it's supposed to do and minimizes. It doesn't just minimize, but it also lifts nicely. Overall, I would recommend it."

14. Best Affordable Full-Coverage Bra: AdoreMe

Rating: 4.8/5

Material: Nylon/ Spandex

Size Range: 38B-46I

Color Range: Beige, red, black

Review Highlight: "I was so happy with this bra! As someone with a 40H chest, bra shopping is a nightmare, and they rarely ever fit properly. This bra was so comfortable, fit like a glove, and the girls have never looked better! Highly recommend, especially for a larger chest."

Wireless Bras

If comfort is of the utmost importance to you while shopping for a bra, you'll want to opt for a wireless style. You can find everything from sultry bralettes to pragmatic sports bras ahead.

15. Best Affordable Size-Inclusive Bralette: Parade

Rating: 4.4/5

Material: Mesh

Size Range: XS-3XL+

Color Range: Over 10+ colorways, including black, burgundy, forest green, rose, and brown. 

Review Highlight: "Normally, it's hard to find a bralette that's actually big enough to fit bigger boobs without being unflattering—but Parade's silky mesh plunge bralette does the trick!"

16. Best Affordable Everday Bralette: Everlane

Rating: 4.6/5

Material: 87% Recycled Nylon, 13% Elastane

Size Range: XXS-XXL

Color Range: Tan, black, brown, gray

Review Highlight: "I love this bra so much I have it in three colors. It's very comfortable and stays put. I appreciate the almost seamless construction and no hardware in the middle of my back. This bra provides medium support and is great under everything. For reference, I am 5'4", 117 lbs. and 34B. The size guide recommended a small size, but I exchanged it for a medium, which fits perfectly."

17. Best Affordable Wireless Bra: Shapermint Essentials 

Rating: 4.4/5

Material: 95% nylon, 5% spandex

Size Range: Small-4XL

Color Range: Black, white, chocolate, beige, latte, oatmeal, rose

Review Highlight: "I love this product. It doesn't give quite the silhouette of a regular underwire bra, but it's much more comfortable—you can even sleep in this! It definitely looks better than a sports bra. On those days when I still want to look put together but I want to be comfy, this is it. And I'm often still wearing it the next day. It fits a range of cup sizes, I'd recommend going more by the band measurement when buying. On Shapermint's website, I size as an L to XL as I wear a 34G or 36DDD, depending on the brand. The M bra band definitely fit better than the others, and the cups fit fine. Thumbs up."

18. Best Designer Bralette: Calvin Klein

Rating: 4.3/5

Material: 53% Cotton, 35% Modal, 12% Elastane

Size Range: XS-3XL

Color Range: Over 10+ colorways, including black, gray, white, and red 

Review Highlight: "It's been impossible to find something to fit my chest (for reference, I'm a 30A/XS in bras ). Most of the time, the smallest size is small and doesn't fit. So, in the past, I've just worn a tight tank top, but I started working at a doctor's office, so I needed some padding. I came across this bra and bought some because they were on sale—I'm so glad I did! They fit great, and they're now all I wear." 

19. Best Affordable Bandeau Bra: True & Co

Rating: 4.1/5

Material: 77% polyamide, 23% elastane

Size Range: XS-XL

Color Range: Black, dark brown, gray, tan, beige

Review Highlight: "I love this bandeau. It is so comfortable and holds my chest up well. I definitely have a bigger chest, so I was surprised at how well it held up! I am 5 ft and 160 lbs, and I chose the large—it fits perfectly. Comes with straps as well if you need to use them!"

20. Best Seamless Compression Bra: Hanes

Rating: 4.3/5

Material: 90% Polyester, 10% Spandex

Size Range: Small-3XL

Color Range: Black, nude, white, gray

Review Highlight: "After 40-plus years of wearing expensive underwire bras, I finally found a wireless bra that works! Like another reviewer, I normally wear a 42DD and got the 2XL in this one. And I'm one of those rare people who is more comfortable sleeping with a bra than without one. I wore it Thanksgiving day and overnight for the first time and just ordered a bunch more! Affordable, seamless, flattering, no uni-boob, no poking, no gapping under the arms, no padding, no itching, no riding, no rolling up! It's the most comfortable bra ever!" 

21. Best Affordable Size-Inclusive Sports Bra: Girlfriend Collective

Rating: 5/5

Material: 79% recycled plastic bottles (RPET) and 21% spandex

Size Range: XXS-6XL

Color Range: Over 10+ colorways, including black, plum, white, navy, and olive green

Review Highlight: "Seriously, this is the most amazing sports bra I've ever owned. It's like magic; when you put it on and adjust everything, the fit is so conforming and flattering. The material is super sturdy and sustainably made. I cannot believe it... I will be buying more."

22. Best Affordable High-Performance Sports Bra: Nike

Rating: 4.7/5

Material: Recycled polyester 

Size Range: XXS-6XL

Color Range: Chocolate brown, black, white, tan, pink, beige

Review Highlight: "Please never stop making this bra. It is literally the best bra I've ever worn. It works as an everyday bra and a light support workout bra. It is so soft and still gives some support but gives you more shape than a typical sports bra. I also like that there are bigger band sizes with smaller cups. I'm usually a 38b, and the large A-B fits perfectly."
