push up bras

Push-up bras are designed to lift the boobs and enhance cleavage, making them one of the most popular styles out there. They give the illusion of a fuller bust by pushing the breasts together towards the centre of the chest (hence the name), making them perfect for wearing under low-cut clothing. Our collection of push-up bras includes the best from all your favourite brands, including Fantasie, Freya and PrimaDonna.

Push-Up Bras

What is a Push-Up Bra?

Push-up bras are made with added padding at the bottom of the cups (unlike padded bras which just have padded lining in between the cups), and work to push the breasts up and make them more central, creating an enhanced cleavage. 

What Does a Push-Up Bra Do?

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

They’re padded by design, so always expect your push-up bra to have some level of padding (this will vary between brand and styles). 

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.

For the complete lowdown, we’ve got a set of bra fitting guides. Find them (and your perfect fit) 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 that), 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 Bad to Wear Push-Up Bras?

You can wear push-up bras as often as you like, provided you’re wearing the right size. Many people make the mistake of opting for a smaller size in the hopes of a better cleavage, but this isn’t how it works. Wearing any kind of bra in a size too small for you 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.

Should I Wear a Push-Up Bra?

If you’ve got a smaller bust, a plunge push-up bra can give the illusion of a fuller bust. However, anyone can wear a push-up bra: they provide a range of benefits that apply to all shapes and sizes. For fuller busts, a push-up bra can offer further support from the padding. A win either way!
