When searching for the perfect bra, every woman wants a bra that shapes, sculpts and supports better than any other. But how do you decide which bra gives you the best shape? Do padded bras give better support? Do non-padded bras shape as well as padded? There’s so much more to choosing a bra style to suit you than a simple Padded Vs Non-padded choice, but it’s a very good place to start.
What is a Padded Bra?
It is an everyday bra that has padded cups. The pads in the bra cups add fullness to the bust line and enhance the appearance of the breasts. Padded bras can help make breast tissues appear firmer and fuller. They also make your breasts look larger.
What are Padded Bras Made of?
Padded bras have thin pads of foam placed inside the cups. The layer of foam is made with laminated fabric on one or both sides. The foams are made of cotton, nylon, polyamide fabric or just a sheet of foam.
1. Padding For Shape
Padding is perfect if you’re looking to pump up the volume and enhance your shape or achieve a smoother finish. Commonly, the smaller the cup size the more padded it will be. These styles are ideal for softer breasts, or those whose breasts aren’t as full at the top. The padding molds the breast by pushing it in or up to boost shape and add definition to the cleavage.
2. Padding For Support
It’s super common for a woman searching for a supportive bra to reach for padded styles first. But what if we said it’s not the padding that props you up but how well the band fits and the shape of the cup itself?
Depending on the shape or your breasts choosing a cup that cradles you comfortably and a band that fits firmly is bra-fitting-101. You can be equally well supported in a padded or non-padded bra, but if the fit is off, you’ll likely wind up sliding out of or spilling over your bra.
3. Padding For Style
You’ll find padded and non-padded options in almost every conceivable cup shape and colour. Whether you suit a balcony bra or prefer a plunge the style of bra you choose isn’t a prescription for life; you can (…and should) experiment.
