What is a Padded Bra?

Do you want your breasts to look fuller or more lush? Want to increase your breast size? Want a bra that can help you compensate for uneven or disproportional breasts? Padded bras are great for women who want to enhance the look of their busts and tweak the way their clothes fit.

A padded bra is a bra whose cups contain padding, or pockets for padding. The padding inside the bra cups is intended to add fullness to the bust line, and enhance the appearance of your bust. Padded bras can make your breasts look larger, and they can help make breast tissue appear fuller and firmer. Many women use padded bras to compensate for uneven or disproportional breasts.

Padded bras typically come in two styles: either with removable inserts, or with padding sewn into the cups of the bras. If the padding is sewn in, it tends to be graduated thicker at the base of the cup to provide lift and give the breasts a more natural, rounded look.

Padded bras with pockets give you the ability to customize your padding to get exactly the look you're seeking, while padded bras with the padding sewn in are slightly less versatile. The latter are great if you're looking to enhance your bust size or add fullness to your bust, but may not be flexible enough for women who need to customize their fit further.
