Found: The Best Bra for “Tired Boobs”


Yep. “Tired boobs” was an actual comment I got after posting a photo of me in a T-shirt dress to The Mom Edit’s Facebook page in 2020 (of all years). Heh. I know. Wtf. I mean, they WERE PROBABLY TIRED. It was 2020. EVERYTHING was tired.

Regardless, troll or otherwise, it has, uh…it’s become a joke around the office now. What else are you gonna do with that kind of comment except laugh? LORDY.

And since you probably don’t have the pleasure of people calling your boobs tired and fueling a fire inside you to find a well-fitting, really supportive bra for perkiness, I thought perhaps others can benefit from my rage-search for the best bra for “tired boobs.”

Tired Boobs, Meet Natori Feathers: The Best Bra For Lift + Support

Thanks to that wild ride, I recently rediscovered my favorite supportive T-shirt bra. Trust me, these boobs are WAY MORE tired now in 2023, but I’m happy to reclaim that comment and use it for my own benefit…and yours too! If you’re searching for a bra that lifts the babes up a bit and makes you feel good in your clothes, may I suggest the Natori Feathers Underwire Contour bra.

The Backstory Of My Search For The Best Bra

I’ll admit, I was wearing ZERO underwire bras in 2020. Who cared? Even as someone who still got dressed for photos for my job that year, I really didn’t think it was all that important to have a perky chest. Also, I know you’re going to want to see the photo that garnered that comment so, here it is:

OMG, looking back I’m really thinking what ridiculousness that was. But alas, it’s fun to laugh at now when I actually do need a bra with some lift.

I’ve gone up a size or two over the last few years, in bra sizes and pant sizes, and I just wanted something more supportive for this part of me that has fed a child, expanded during pregnancy + nursing, AND shrunk back down a little and just changed and morphed. It’s ALL VERY NORMAL.

(Side note: I had a SHITE time breastfeeding and only managed seven months of combined nursing and bottle feeding, so I just want to say to all mamas out there…FED is best, and you’re doing great. xoxo)

The Reveal: Natori Feathers Underwire Contour Bra

I wanted something that looked great under tees and blouses since I tend to wear those a lot, and I just wanted to feel good.

Am I wearing this Natori Feathers bra every day? Nope. But I am when I want to feel pulled together and supported. Love you, comfort bras + wireless bras, but you don’t quite fulfill my every need. (Another side note: This one is still my favorite supportive-ish, wire-free bra.)

The Natori Feathers bra is the most comfortable of all underwire bras I've worn.

I recently went up to a 34D (almost but not quite a DD), and I cannot tell you how happy I am to have repurchased this baby in the correct size. I had it years ago and thankfully impulse-purchased it in the larger size recently when I was in Nordstrom. I got it in the Cinnamon color, and I love it. I should’ve gotten the matching undies, I love it so much (I’m not organized enough to be a matching-set person most of the time).

Quick Notes:

  • Is it comfortable? The Natori Feathers bra is the most comfortable of all underwire bras I’ve worn. If you’ve solidly been in wire-free or yoga bras like I’d been for a couple of years — barring when I need a strapless option… Spoiler alert: It’s this same bra without straps; perhaps that should’ve clued me in sooner — there’ll be a bit of an adjustment period to wearing a wire again, but gah. It’s worth it, and now I pop this on anytime I’m at all dressed outside of athleisure wear.
  • Nordstrom’s site says the cups run small and while I haven’t tried the 34DD (which would be essentially a cup size up for me) I’ve been happy with the D, which is the size I own in a couple of bras right now. If you’re in between sizes, you might try the cup size up.

And here’s how the lovely Feathers bra looks under a white tee. I perhaps should’ve shown a V-neck tee too because that’s a bonus of this particular bra. It’s a plunge cut, so it accommodates lower necklines. Love that.

Hey, Pinners…

"Tired boobs" was an actual comment I cue my rage-search for the best T-shirt bra w/ lift + support. Enter: the Natori Feathers bra.


  1. I love my Natori bras. The Feathers don’t work for my shape, but I love other styles. And I had a crap time breastfeeding too. I lasted 6 weeks, crying every day. And then I stopped breastfeeding and stopped crying. Thriving 14-yr old son over here. Fed is best!

  2. You are a superhero for your way with words and body positivity. I’m way older than you and still relate to the times after babes when everything changed with my body and every change was worth it. Thanks for always putting positivity out there.

  3. LOL i remember thinking that outfit was cute on you…cute enough to click on, in fact 😉 “tired boobs” wow. that’s something. when someone tells me i look tired i tell them it was “just the look i was aiming for, thanks!” (you should see the expression on their faces when i say that, hahah) but all kidding aside, that bra is fantastic under that thin white T…(are we allowed to say that?) except for the color it’s invisible! does a completely invisible bra actually exist? i like the colors too but sometimes that totally nude look is what i’m looking for!

  4. I’m a Wacoal girl, but I wanted to let everyone know that if they like the Feathers bra, it usually is on Anniversary Sale, so that’s a good time to stock up!

  5. It never ceases to amaze me the type of comments people leave when they can hide behind the anonymity of a keyboard!!!

  6. I hope whoever made that comment about your boobs feels very bad knowing the entire TME community thinks they’re an a-hole.

    I’m not ready for underwire life again just yet, but this looks fab and I may have to check out the strapless version.

    • haha I love you. And the strapless is great. Took me a bit to get used to the underwire again, but now I love it for the right outfit.

  7. I zoomed in. I mean- really zoomed in. I don’t see it. Even when looking. Sorry to say, but I don’t think you need any sorts of new bras.

  8. Love Feathers! I was surprised to look “perky” instead of tired for a change. 😅 For me, it’s comfortable enough even for hiking. And always included in Nordstrom’s sales, though not usually the basic colors

  9. Who says that stuff to strangers?! Sheesh. Love Natori. The Natori pure luxe bras are also a fabulous t-shirt bra! I live in them. And they usually have them on sale on Nordstrom Rack which is a bonus when they’re usually $70+

  10. I applaud your sense of humor! I’m a bit short-waisted, so a great supportive bra is key for any waist definition. I highly recommend getting professionally measured. I thought I was a 36B, then 5 years ago I went into a LaPerla and was measured at a 32DDD. So there ‘ya go. Btw, I’ve slept with a bra on for the last 18 years (since first pregnancy) and I’m convinced that’s kept the girls somewhat intact. 🙂

  11. It’s shocking how emboldened people get with the anonymity of the internet. Words hurt, and stick. Five dollars says they would never have the courage to say something like that in person. Ten dollars says they’d crumble if someone made a comment like that at them. I’m glad you called them out.

  12. Just here to say WTF?!? Who says stuff like that?!? I think you look adorable in that dress. Especially because it was May 2020!!!! Who was even putting real clothes on then?!? I applaud you for wearing any bra at all at that point!

  13. That unicorn color combo IS a mystery isn’t it?!?!?!?! but people truly are amazing. i have been told my more people than i care to count that i “look so much better” when i straighten my hair (yes it’s straight in that pic but since then i’ve transitioned to my all natural long ringlets) and that i “WOULD look so much better” if i got implants!!! (yes. those comments have been made to my face!) i tell ya…

  14. I kept scrolling looking for the “tired boob” pic and had to scroll back up! I think you look GREAT in the red dress, boobs included!!! Middle finger to the trolls!!!

  15. riggghhht?!?!?!?! but i gotta say, it’s nice to be able to feel safe to share these things here and maybe send out some better vibes! just when you think you’re going crazy there’s this little pocket of sanity 😉

  16. Tired boobs?! What says that to someone? It’s like saying “you look tired”. SMH… By the way, your boobs look wide awake in your new bra! I have that same bra and I love it, especially under v necks!
    I exclusively breastfed my son (1st born) for a year, simply because he wouldn’t take a bottle. My daughter nursed for 12 weeks, we didn’t vibe and I returned to work after 12 weeks. FED is best!

  17. This is one of your funniest posts ever, Laura. Tired boobs – Lordy indeed. If your are tired, mine are in a deep coma.

  18. I loved this post and can’t believe someone would say that to you! But great job turning it around and getting back your power. I am writing now because I ordered the bra and it just came. I have a very small chest (34B) and the bra is divine! What a great find. Thanks for sharing
