Padded Bras are available in a variety of padding. These bras are great for increasing the size of your breasts. - You can choose the level of padding, and where it is positioned on the bra, to ensure that you get the look you want: all-over padding will enhance the shape of your breasts, whereas padding at the bottom of the cup will push your breasts upwards, creating great cleavage! - Padded styles are also great if you wish to minimize nipple-points or nipple-show during daily activities. - Padded bras are also good to wear if you have a larger cup size, not to enhance their shape, but to give support and uplift. - The first padded bra was found in 1880 and now resides in the London Science Museum. Trivia: - Padded bras were initially developed to protect the breasts of athletes during training! - The original commercial padded bra gave a conical shape to the breast, and became known as ‘falsies’ due to the fake and pointy appearance it gave to the breasts.
