Finding the Best Push Up Bra

Push up bras… We’ve certainly all heard of them and most of us probably own a couple, but do we actually know what they’re for and if we’re using them properly? With any bra, it’s really important to know what the style is meant for and if you should be wearing them, so we’ve put together this post to help you get the most out of your push up bra.

What is a Push Up Bra?

A push up bra is exactly what the name suggests… They’re made with extra padding, so they ‘push up’ your boobs closer to the chest’s centre. This gives them a natural uplift and adds the appearance of size, so you get a rounder, fuller look.

How does a Push Up Bra work? What does a Push Up Bra do?

Push up bras are designed with fitted wires and comfortable padding, which works to lift the bust. With cushioning in the cups, they also create the illusion of a fuller bust.

They are padded by design, so do always expect a padded push up bra or something along those lines (it varies between each brand). 

How should a Push Up Bra fit?

With every bra, it's really important to know how it should fit properly.

You should not:

  • Be left with any marking or indents from wear - this means it’s too tight. 
  • Have any kind of gaping on the tops or sides - this means that it’s too big and you should try a smaller cup size.

If you're still worried, you can find our in-depth bra fitting guide here. 

Do Push Up Bras Make Your Breasts Bigger?

Whilst push up bras won’t actually change the shape of your boobs or make them physically larger (imagine), they will create the illusion of a bigger, fuller bust when worn properly. So although they don’t have super-boob-changing-powers (you’ll need to pay good money for that), they are pretty good at giving you a nice boost and rounding out your shape.

Is it good to wear a Push Up Bra?

Push up bras are fine to wear as often as you like, provided you are wearing the right size. Most people make the mistake of opting for a smaller size in the hopes of more cleavage, but it doesn’t work like this. Wearing any bra in a size too small will only cause damage and discomfort, so it’s really not worth it. Wearing a push up bra in the correct size will give you everything you need, with no damage to your boobs! 

Who should wear a Push Up Bra?

Anyone can wear a push up bra - they provide a range of benefits that apply to all sizes. People with smaller busts will gain a fuller look, bigger busts a good lift and those with fuller busts will gain more support from the bra’s padding. A win either way!
