what does padded bra mean

Are you in need of a little extra oomph? If you want to boost your bust, there’s nothing quite like a padded bra to do the job. However, you might worry that wearing this type of lingerie will make your breasts look less natural.

Luckily enough, there are six simple tips you can try that will help you get it right.

1.  Make sure you’re wearing the right size

First things first, let’s talk about your bra size. The sorry truth of the matter is that if you’re wearing a poorly fitted bra, your breasts won’t look natural at all.

For example, should you opt for a bra that’s a little on the tight side, you may well find that you end up with an unattractive ‘double boob’ look. On the other hand, if your bra is too large, it may sag at the front and fail to offer you the support that you deserve. Yikes.

Either way, the best thing you can do is ensure that you go for regular bra fittings. Doing so will mean that you always know what size you are and, as a result, you can be certain that the padded bra that you choose will give you the support and comfort you need.

2.  Choose a smooth, seamless fabric

When you’re shopping for a padded bra, you should pay close attention to the style of the fabric. Opting for a piece that has a smooth and seamless appearance is likely to be the best way to go for you. The reason is simple – this style will give you a natural-looking silhouette when you wear it. Whether you’re choosing to don a bodycon dress or simply a light, flowing blouse, you should find that this type of bra works well with your look. Simple.

3.  Adjust those bra straps

Are your bra straps too tight? If so, you could find that your lingerie is hoisting your breasts upward into an unnatural position. It’s time to stop that once and for all. When you first try on your new padded bra, take a little extra time to adjust the bra straps and make sure that the piece fits as well as it should. As a golden rule, remember that the straps should never make a mark on your skin or cause you any form of discomfort.

4.  Always invest in quality

The number one rule when it comes to buying a padded bra is to invest in a quality piece. Should you scrimp and go for a cheap design or look, you will quite literally get what you pay for. There is a real art to getting this type of lingerie right. That means that the more you’re willing to invest in the lingerie, the more likely you are to choose a piece that looks as natural as it could possibly be. Keep that in mind at all times.

Now that you know how to get a padded bra that will give you the right look, what are you waiting for? Why not start looking around online now and see what you can find?
