Push-up bras, when spoken about in particular, are something that we immediately relate to a women with small breasts wearing to kind of add a little lift to the bust. This image has stuck with us and kind of diminished the fact that a push up bra, in reality, is so much more than that and nothing less than a game changer. So let’s go over how a push up bra can make all the difference in your outfit and look.
We need to understand that even though a push u bra proves to be very beneficial for women with smaller breasts, it can be used very well by women with regular or bigger bust size for many reasons.
- Better Shape
A push up bra can provide a good shape to the breast, irrespective of your breast size. One problem faced by women with bigger busts is that the breasts tend to hang or sag because you can’t defeat gravity right? Saggings breasts are something that most women are not comfortable with and wish to have perky breasts. Here’s where a push-up bra proves to be super helpful as it pushes the breasts tissues upwards and towards the centre and gives a great shape.
- Protect Modesty
Visible nipples can be an embarrassing situation for most of us. A slight nip in the temperature of a chilled meeting room, others don’t need that information from your breasts, right? A push-up comes in handy in such a situation. All push-up bras have added padding that conceals nipple show and protects modesty while keeping your breasts comfortable and secured on the inside. They can help you stay comfortable for longer hours and make your breasts look rounder in shape.
- Create a Cleavage
I believe all types of breast shape are beautiful. Having said that, some shapes come with its own pros and cons which can be easily tackled with the right bra type. If you have east-west or side set breast shape which means each breast facing against each other, then a push-up bra can help you bring them together. A push-up bra has angled padding on the bottom of the cups that push your breasts towards the centre and upwards creating a visible cleavage.

- Extensive lift or level 3 push up bra: These bras are for women with small breasts and they give a lift of about three cup sizes more. Chosen to be worn for dresses that are revealing for events or parties.
