It is no secret that women have stuffed their bras as long as bras have been around. And based on emails that we have received, it appears that almost everything possible has been used by women to do so - tissue paper, socks, items of clothing (particularly scarves), etc. But still we have a question from Melissa, who says, "I have done an extensive search, but have not found a single website that clearly tells me how to stuff my bra when I want do. And no one seems to know the right answer. What do the fashion experts at MYNIPPON think?"
- If you can afford it, we suggest that you go for an enhancer bra rather than stuff your bra (but we will discuss more on stuffing later if that is what you want to do). The best quality bras have built-in silicone gel pads and all you need to do is to wear it as you would any other bra. These bras come in many sizes and you can pick one based on whatever cup size you want. These can cost over $100 but the fit and the natural feeling is well worth the investment.
- The next option is to buy the silicone enhancers that cost less than the bra but still will go for about $150. However, you can use them with any regular bra.
- Of course, you can always buy a foam-padded bra that is much less expensive but does not give the profile of silicone gel pads and you can go only one cup size bigger in most cases. Similarly, you can foam pads also separately at any online lingerie store (generally under accessories or model secrets section).
- Finally, if you just want to stuff your bra without spending anything, our experts suggest that the two-bra method. You wear a bra and stuff it with either scarves (if only a slight increase is desired) or with a hand towel (if a large increase in size is desired), and the wear another bra on top to keep everything in place.
