So Many of Nordstrom's Top-Reviewed Bras Are on Sale—Here's What to Buy

·9 min read

Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale—the biggest sale event of them all—is in full swing and taking all of our money. While you can find everything from upgraded basics to trendy fall pieces and more, I'm taking a more measured approach to diving into the hoard of markdowns. I'm making a beeline for the intimates section, scoping up tons of staples like no-show briefs, sturdy shapewear, and fancy pajama sets in the process. While just about all of its intimates are great, there's one category in particular where Nordstrom excels: bras.

Shopping for bras can be a daunting process, specifically where comfort and quality are concerned, but I've found that Nordstrom's selection is pretty much unmatched. Its offering has a little bit of something for everyone—including curvier folks and those with bigger busts—a huge reason it's the first place I look for a great-fitting bra. Luckily for you (and the rest of us), many of the retailer's best-selling bras are on major discount, presenting a perfect opportunity to give your lingerie drawer a much-needed refresh. To save you the headache of scrolling through tons of SKUs, I've narrowed it down to the best of the bunch, according to reviews. Keep scrolling to check out the bras people love most and to stock up for yourself.

Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra ($40)

Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "Everyone knows how uncomfortable a strapless bra can be, and everyone knows how a strapless bra likes to fall down, but this little wonder kept the girls up where they belonged through a whole night of dancing! I was not tugging at the top of it every five minutes. Its a really great, uplifting, stable bra. I highly suggest it!" — Nordstrom reviewer

Natori Flora Underwire Bra ($47)

Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "This is probably the best fitting bra I have ever worn. I am a 34G, with one side that is larger than the other, and I have continually had issues with bra straps falling down with one side of my chest bulging out of my bras. This fits my varied size perfectly. It's smooth under my clothes and comfortable to wear all day long." — Nordstrom reviewer

True & Co. True Body With Lace Trim Lift Bralette ($42)

Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "It's so comfortable that I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything, but I also feel supported and shaped! Exactly what I wanted!" — Nordstrom reviewer

Natori Feathers Underwire Contour Bra ($45)

Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "As a 36DD, I hated looking for bras because everything in my size had so much material with coverage that came up higher than my necklines. I found this after searching for bras by rating and have never looked back. It's sexy, supportive, and comes in gorgeous colors—it makes me feel good. I'm purchasing my fifth one now." — Nordstrom reviewer

Natori Rose Dream Custom Coverage Underwire Bra ($48)

Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "I’ve been wearing this style bra for a few years now and it’s absolutely worth the price. I have one in the nude color that I only wear under very thin fabrics when I don’t want a bra to be seen. I find that this bra is more minimizing on me, but I couldn’t recommend adding it to your collection more. It’s absolutely worth it!" — Nordstrom reviewer

True & Co. True Body Lift V-Neck Bralette ($38)

Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "This bra is incredibly comfortable! The straps, band, and cups are all super soft. It covers what needs to be covered and stretches with every move. I can't recommend this bra enough! It's the best bra I've ever had and I am in my 60's." — Nordstrom reviewer

Chantelle Lingerie Rive Gauche Full Coverage Underwire Bra ($55)

Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "This is the best bra I've ever owned! I've never owned a Chantelle bra before but now I will never wear anything else. I have this bra in all 3 colors. It's so comfortable, and the support and shape is the best I've ever had. Thank goodness someone is making good fitting bras for larger busted women. I look so much better in this bra and my clothes even fit better." — Nordstrom reviewer

Chantelle Lingerie Norah Molded Underwire Bra ($49)

Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "Chantelle is my favorite brand for bras. I usually wear the C Magnifique bra, but when I saw this style in the Anniversary sale, I decided to try it. I tried it on in store and loved it. It’s so soft and comfortable!" — Nordstrom reviewer

Elomi Matilda Full Figure Underwire Plunge Bra ($46)

Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "I am a bra fitter, and let me tell you: this bra is probably the best full figure bra I have ever seen come through Nordstrom. It fits so true to size, the band is nice and snug (but not too tight), it converts to racer back, and the seams are so good about not showing. I have never met a person who didn't love it. I am also in love with it!!" — Nordstrom reviewer

Natori Bliss Perfection Underwire Contour Bra ($45)

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "I'm always looking for that perfect bra—you know the kind that doesn’t dig in everywhere and that doesn’t cut into your back fat. Well, I think this is the one. I've been wearing it ever since I got it and have already ordered a second one. It is so light and comfortable but gives me support without digging into my shoulders or ribcage. Try it!" — Nordstrom reviewer

Wacoal How Perfect No-Wire Contour Bra ($42)

Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "Wearing a bra has always been painful for me. As time marched on, not wearing a bra has become even more painful, so trying to find one that worked was a real challenge. This bra felt like a gentle embrace the second I put it on—no hard underwires digging in. It's perfectly smooth under clothing and the straps stay put. Not wanting to rip off a bra as soon as I get home? Unheard of! I loved the nude so much that I bought another in brown." — Nordstrom reviewer

Wacoal Elevated Allure Underwire Bra ($45)

Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "Fabulous bra! I usually only wear contour or lined bras but this one supports and lifts as well while being more comfortable! I ordered my usual Wacoal size 32DD in black and I can't stop reaching for it to wear every day." — Nordstrom reviewer

Chantelle Lingerie C Magnifique Nouveau Full Coverage Underwire Bra ($49)

Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "This one is a great fitting minimizer that provides support while giving a nice shape. The smooth fabric makes it perfect to wear under t-shirts and thinner blouses. I purchased this in two colors and may go back for a third because this bra is everything you could ask for in a minimizer style." — Nordstrom reviewer

Wacoal Jacquard Underwire Contour Bra ($43)

Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "This is the best bra for my curvy figure with 42H breasts. The fit is excellent, covering and supporting the entire breast area. It's extremely comfortable and presents a natural but "perky" look under my clothing." — Nordstrom reviewer

Spanx® Bra-Llelujah! Unlined Bralette ($32)

Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "The fabric is extremely soft and comfortable to wear. It doesn’t constrict, but rather stretches where it needs to. This bra doesn’t have the most support, but I was surprised by how well it looks under t-shirts. I bought each of my daughters one and have already ordered more." — Nordstrom reviewer

Natori Bliss Perfection Contour Soft Cup Bra ($42)

Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "My new favorite bra! I am a 32DDD and didn’t think I would ever find a non-underwire bra that would work for me, but this one does! It's super comfy and provides adequate support–I had to come back to buy it in all the colors." — Nordstrom reviewer

Natori Minimal Contour Underwire Demi Bra ($38)

Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "I love the Feather bra, but this is even more comfortable than that. It feels as though you are not wearing bra, yet super supportive at the same time. I also love how it comes with an adjustable hook." — Nordstrom reviewer

B.TEMPT'D by Wacoal Lace Kiss Bralette ($12)

Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "I've always loved the idea of low profile bras like this, but all the ones I've tried either do nothing or are way too tight. This is light, comfy, soft, and offers just enough in the way of shaping. It also creates a very natural look, which (as a girl who absolutely cannot go braless) is something I've searched for for years. I wish it came in more colors!" — Nordstrom reviewer

Fantasie Fusion Underwire Side Support Bra ($38)

Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "I love the light feel and support this bra gives. It's somewhat soft and the side support is also amazing!" — Nordstrom reviewer

Wacoal Ultimate Side Smoother Underwire T-Shirt Bra ($45)

Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars

Review Highlight: "Love this bra as it provides great support and there's some minimal padding for t-shirts. The mesh sides are angled together so you don't end up with back or side bulges." — Nordstrom reviewer
