Stayed away from push-up bras ‘cos you weren’t sure if they were right for you? Well, it’s time to put those worries to rest and go ahead and take the plunge! ‘Cos push up bras are a great addition to your intimate wear collection. They not only give your breasts a natural lift, they also make them look fuller some push-up bras may even add a cup size!. Push-up bras basically push your breasts upwards and closer together to naturally enhance cleavage. The padding on the inside of the cups is made of silicone gel or foam to lift up the breast tissue and visibly increase volume. Based on the thickness of the padding, push-up bras can be of 3 types.

Types of push-up bras:

Level 1 – this gives a gentle lift. One-third of the base of the bra is padded either graduated padding or a slight bump. This type adds half a cup size and gives your breasts a natural lift. If you have full or semi-full breasts, go for this type. This push-up bra will give your breasts a moderately rounded look at the top and accentuate your cleavage.

Level 2 – this gives a moderate lift. The padding in this type ends just below the nipple and it adds up to one cup size. So, if your breast size is 32B, you will look like a 32C. If you have wide-set breasts more than three fingers’ gap between your breasts, opt for this type of push-up bra; it will give you a sexy lift and cleavage.

Level 3 – these are known as explosive push-up bras because they add two cup sizes! If your breast size is 32B, you will look like a 32D. If you have shallow breasts, this is your pick. This bra will give your breasts a nice rounded look and enhance your cleavage beautifully. P.S- if you have full breasts, stay away from level 3 push up bras; they will add uncomfortable volume.

Now that you know what the levels of push up padding are, it’s time to pick one that suits your style sensibilities. Pick from lace, smooth contour cups, mesh, and more and wear it with the right styles to get a sexy look, every time!

What to wear it with:

Push-up bras don’t just help you get sexy cleavage but also give your bust a defined shape so you look great in whatever you are wearing. Wear a gentle lift push-up bra under a regular T-shirt – it will give a firm and well-rounded look. Opt for a moderate lift level 2 or an explosive level 3 push-up bra under that deep neckline dress to enhance your cleavage. But remember, do not wear a push-up bra under a button-down shirt because the added volume will cause gaping between the buttons!
