Is there any conventional math symbol which means "a is an upper bound of X"?

Or maybe there is some symbol which means "the set of all upper bounds of X"?

What I want is to write phrase "a is an upper bound of X" symbolically (not by English words).

And dually for lower bounds.

I don't know of anything standard, but

X \leq a

seems to tell the whole story pretty concisely.
