18 Types of Bras every girl must know

In some bra’s pads can even be removed. Some bras are padded with gel so that they can be adjusted with the size of breasts. For women with smaller breasts, it can be used to make breasts look larger. And for women with larger breasts, use it for creating cleavage.


2. Padded Bra

As the name suggests, padded bras have a cup to lift your breast to give the appearance of larger breasts and to prevent nipples from showing while wearing T-shirts and fitted outfits. These are more comfortable than the thin ones, especially if your breast tissues are particularly sensitive and easy to get hurt.

If it’s too lose it will keep slipping and you will be pulling it up all the time. Often strapless bras will have areas of silicone that will help it to grip against your skin and prevent it slipping down.
