Push-up Bra / Push-up Cups
: Push-up cups enhance a woman's
bust line by creating cleavage and the look of fuller breasts.
With the help of padding that is hidden inside the
bra, the push up bra will help push breasts in the upward direction.
Certainly not straight up, but pushed up to an appropriate level.
Most push-up bras also have wide-set
straps. Setting the straps toward the outside edge of the cups will
further assist in directing the breast tissue towards the center to create
more cleavage. Designed primarily for women with C cups or smaller, the
push-up cups are often shaped like a demi cup with significant padding at
the bottom of the cups. The cups are angled inward so that the breast
tissue is pushed towards the center, thus creating cleavage.
