Padded bras are a lifesaver for those women who want to add little extra volume to their bust. However, when it comes time to shop for padded bras, you may find yourself rather overwhelmed by the multitude of choices. If you want to avoid vertigo in the lingerie department, take a look at the following guide.

A Guide to Choosing Padded Bras

There are a few basic things to consider when it comes time to purchasing padded bras. The first and perhaps most obvious thing to be decided is your bra size; this does not change when you go from a regular bra to a padded bra. Once you've determined the appropriate bra size, you're ready to start sifting through your padded bra options.

The next thing to ponder is how much padding you want. Some padded bras will increase the look of your bust size up to two cup sizes while others will simply give you a little extra oomph. You should also pay attention to the placement of the padding as some bras pad in order to create cleavage and others pad so the breast looks fuller.

Last but not least, you do have some other options. Many padded bras come with inserts which allow you to control exactly how much padding you want and where you want that padding to go. If you like this notion, you should also look into independently manufactured inserts that can be placed inside the cup of any bra so you can get instant padding whenever and wherever you need it.
