selecting a push up braPushup bras are more than just undergarments. The right one can make a woman feel gorgeous and ready to take on the world. With all the different types of bras available, how do you choose the right one? These tips will help you choose the perfect style to compliment your figure and help you make your boobs appear bigger.

About Pushup Bras

According to Victoria Wolk at Prevention magazine, “the right bra comforts and supports you in all the right places.” A pushup bra lifts and enhances the bust line. A type of modern-day corset, this kind of bra increases cleavage without restricting breathing. They usually do this with the help of metal or plastic under wires placed beneath the cups for support. Some also incorporate padding that lifts the breast higher while keeping bouncing to a minimum.

The Right Fit

The first step in selecting the right pushup bra for your size and shape is finding one that fits. The easiest way to do this is to be measured by a professional. Many department and fitness stores employ specially trained staff to ensure you get the right fit. If this isn’t an option for you, you can measure at home with a tape measure. You will need to take two measurements: one around the rib cage where the bra band will hit, and the other around the fullest point of the bust. Online calculators are available to convert these two measurements into the closest bra size.

The Right Type

The next step is to determine the use for the bra. Just like other bras, the pushup bra comes in a variety of styles. Some of these include:

  • strapless
  • racer-back
  • full-cup
  • demi-cup

They also come in a variety of fabrics and textures. From embellished satin to cotton t-shirt fabric, these undergarments are available for a night on the town, everyday wear, and for fitness wear. Choose one that is constructed for the intended clothing to ensure the look you want.

The Right Feel

The last step is to try on the bra. After selecting the size, type, and style, try it out. Make sure to move around, lift your arms, adjust the straps, and see how it looks and feels. The breasts should be supported but not cascading over the cups or bouncing loosely. You can always go up or down a band or cup size as needed. With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to find a bra that fits and supports your body and life.
