Which Padded Bra Is Best For Me?

Believe it or not, everyone can wear a padded bra. Yes, you read that right. Everyone. Who says you can't? because we would like to speak to them and show them the facts! Here at Belle Lingerie, we have an amazing range of padded bras for every shape, style and occasion you might have. We just need to point out, that padded does not mean push up! Push up bras are something completely different! (That will be in a whole different blog for you!) Padded bras mean there is padding lined between the cups. They're not just for small-busted ladies! So let's set the record straight, and show you that whether you're a 28D or a 40DD, there is a padded bra for everyone. We got you ladies, now, let's find out which is best for you!

The Styles

Padded bra's come in various different styles, from balconette to plunge, there is a style to suit everyone. Padded bras are perfect for giving you a natural shape, the best coverage and helping to enhance your gorgeous curves. Wanting that lift in both your cups and confidence? Then padded bras will be your best friend! So let's take a look and see which style will be the newest edition to your underwear drawer (remember you always need a good black, nude and white everyday bra in there! Treat yourself, it's Friday after all!)


Plunging necklines weren't for the faint-hearted, but now they're not to be feared. In fact, they're to be celebrated. Show off your cleavage and make a statement in any plunging neckline outfit this summer and team it with a padded plunge bra. The perfect combo if you ask us.

Now, smooth bras are ideal for under your everyday clothes, the Curvy Kate Daily Plunge Bra or Parfait Emma Moulded Plunge Bra will provide you with great coverage but have that smoothing effect for under your clothes, especially if they're form-fitting!

However, if you're in the mood for something a little more feminine, why not check out Pour Moi Revolution Contour Bra, adorned with lace with a low plunge neckline, this bra is a show stopper (don't forget the matching panties to complete the set!) Or take a look at the Prima Donna Palermo Triangle Bra, with its sophisticated patterned trim and lace cups, it is sure to give you that boost of confidence.


We all know by now that balconette bras are perfect for that sweetheart neckline, the appearance of a fuller cup and are a flattering fit for all ladies. The Marie Jo Richard Padded Balcony Bra is no exception. It boasts a longline effect for added security and the padded cups allow for a perfectly framed cleavage. Similarly, the Curvy Kate Emboost Padded Balcony Bra has a classic balcony style with a romantic lace covering the cups. Ideal for the fuller bust ladies, this bra will have you feeling confident and comfy! (don't take our word for it! Try it out and see!)

Smooth cup balconettes are a staple too. Sometimes lace doesn't always fit the occasion. Maybe you need a bra for your next big interview, a formal dinner or you just need one for under your t-shirt as you complete the mad supermarket sweep before they close on a Sunday (we know, we know, we've all been there!) Why not check out the Cleo by Panache Juna Balcony Bra or the Royal Lounge Intimates Royal Star Padded Balcony Bra. Both have smooth cups and are great as an alternate for the basic t-shirt bras! If you love wearing racerback tank tops then the Marie Jo Samuel Padded Balcony Bra is perfect for you, complete with padded cups the straps at the back have an optional J-hook which allows you to alter them to a racerback style.


As we have already established, the classic T-shirt bra is a staple must-have. Make sure you have the perfect fit and you're good to go. Check out our fitting guide to double-check your size and remember your size can fluctuate all the time (completely normal!).

The Royal Lounge Intimates Royal Diva Padded Full Cup Bra is a great go-to, it offers full coverage with soft padding and a high back band which gives additional support to the wearer. If you're looking for an even simpler option then why not look at the Pour Moi Twist Cotton Padded T-Shirt Bra. Providing ultimate comfort with an athleisure appearance, this is ideal for those who love a sports bra vibe but fancy something a little more relaxed.

T-shirt bras don't always have to be simple. Have you ever thought about getting one with lace? The Simone Perele Eclat Plunge Bra could be your next best friend. With a delicate lace trim and cups made from a spacer material, meaning this makes it breathable and comfortable to wear. A great go-to for every day with that added touch of feminity.

You're Caught Up

We hope that has been helpful for you all. Padded bra's come in so many styles, colours and shapes that when we say there is something for everyone. We really truly mean it. So regardless of what you may have heard in the past, it's time to wipe the slate clean and start that lingerie journey again. Padded bras are for everyone. Designed to enhance you're natural shape and boost that confidence.

Take the plunge, buy that padded bra (and matching panties!), and rock it no matter what the occasion. We can't wait to see your choices! Happy shopping ladies! xoxo Belle Lingerie
