Customer Reviews Don't Lie: These Are the 26 Best Lifting Bras

One of the most underrated ways to make any outfit look better isn't through adopting a few new trends or styling hacks (though that can help). Instead, it's all about investing in well-fitting undergarments. We often think about lingerie with the perspective that because the entire world doesn't see it, it's not worth splurging on. But that's not necessarily the right move. Sure, we're not all walking around naked, but improper underpinnings can cause some of the biggest wardrobe malfunctions, which makes buying good lingerie all the more imperative. 

While there are a few undergarments worth investing in (think shapewear or seamless panties), the most transformative thing you can buy is a lifting bra. A well-made bra can make all your clothes fit better and help with back issues and even self-confidence. But you don't just have to take my word for it. In an effort to show how life-changing a great bra can be, I scoured the review sections of popular lingerie brands and retailers to identify the 26 best lifting bras.

Though finding the best bra for your needs will be based on what you like (e.g., if you prefer padding, wireless bras, or extra-boning for support), the bras listed below are all great options because I've taken into account what makes them truly the best: quality, size inclusivity, cost, stylishness, and real-life reviews. Without further ado, prepare to have your mind blown by these lifting bras.
