Push-up bras and padded bras are designed to create the appearance of larger or fuller breasts while push-up bras also enhance cleavage. Modern padded bras have contour cups that are lined with fiberfill or gel. Some styles are constructed with removable graduated pads for more enhancement at the bottom of the cup, providing a fuller silhouette. Innovative gel pads and super-light foam fill in push-up or padded bras are lightweight-- increasing bust size, enhancing shape and providing more cleavage while still being comfortable.
Front close padded and push-up bras have the additional benefit of a smooth back and flexible strap designs, like convertible straps and racerbacks. Adding a front closure provides the ease and convenience of not having to reach behind your back to put on or take off the bra. The smooth backs of front close bras help eliminate back fat and show-through as well.
