I have nothing to push up so why do I need a push-up bra?
12 Wednesday Jun 2013
We hear this often, “Why would I bother with a push-up bra when I’ve got nothing to push up?” Good question, not to mention a good point, depending on your size.
From our point of view, the push-up bra can serve different purposes, depending on your cup size. If you are an A cup or above, a push-up bra, especially a good one, can do wonders. For example, the Lucia Push-up Bra from The Little Bra Company has put a big smile on many a store customer who tried it and found they now had cleavage and also a slightly bigger bust. And, for the most part, these customers were A cups.
Now, what if you’re an AAA or AA cup? Well, then the push-ups really aren’t meant to give you cleavage so much as volume, meaning increasing your cup size to an A, A+ or more, depending on the level of padding. AA cup women can sometimes wear the A cup push-ups (and AAA wear AA) if they are padded enough and the cups are not too deep. Or they should look for push-ups that feature AAA and AA cups, such as the Lula Lu Petites Lightly Padded Push-Up Bra and the Lula Lu Petites Wireless Push-up Bra.
Yes, it’s definitely confusing but every woman has their preferences as to whether they even like push-ups and padding versus a more natural look. And, sometimes it’s handy to own various bra styles for different outfits, which is what we find most of our customers tell us.
