A bra is an essential part of women’s fashion. Wearing a bra that flatters your figure is important. Push-up bras are made to support and enhance your bustline, while adding lift to create a fuller look. The best push-up bras will compliment your clothing without sacrificing comfort, all while providing that extra boost that some of us need.

Speaking of clothing, fashion fads are constantly changing. So, what’s hot and what’s not? A recent poll of 2,000 U.S. adults found many are predicting future fashion trends to focus on a rise for tie-dye (35%), shirt pockets (33%) and portrait photography (33%). Meanwhile, the best current trends when it comes to custom apparel are to have clothing featuring either quotes (32%), bright colors (31%) or logos on the front (31%).

More than half (58%) agree a person’s choice of clothing suggests a lot about their personality and for 57 percent, it’s done best through customized garments. Almost half of those surveyed (45%) like to express themselves through customized apparel.

Especially for younger generations — combined, 54 percent of Gen Z and millennials surveyed buy custom clothing to reflect their personalities. Nearly as many (53%) Gen Zers and millennials do it to support small businesses.

The study also found the things people are flat-out avoiding in their wardrobe, including swear words (38%), a photo of themselves (34%), pictures of strangers (33%), well-known phrases or slogans (33%), animal prints (29%) and innuendos (29%).

Here at StudyFinds, we want you to feel confident in whatever you’re wearing. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the top five best push-up bras from ten expert websites, to add to your wardrobe. As always, we’d like to see your own recommendations in the comments below!

The List: Best Push-Up Bras, According to Experts

 

1. LIVELY The All-Day No-Wire Push-Up Bra

If a natural, comfortable lift is what you seek, check this bra out from LIVELY. “Its wire-free comfort promises not to dig into your sides and includes just enough foam padding for a bit of oomph that’s not excessive. It comes in a wide range of sizes, from 32A to 38DDD, with an adjustable hook-and-eye closure on the band, as well as three neutral colors and a soft-to-the-touch fabric,” according to Byrdie.

This push-up bra also earns praise for its versatility. Glamour adds, it features adjustable straps for a racerback option, ideal for wearing under tricky tank tops.”

What about wearability? “The supportive style has soft padded cups, extra foam padding at the base and a flexible wing that keeps you comfortable all day long,” notes Today.

2. WingsLove Push-Up Bra

This bra by WingsLove is a solid choice for women with a little less cleavage. “In each cup of this bra sit two moulded pads to offer maximum volume. The cup design works really well for those who have a wider distance between their breasts, since it helps to deliver a full look without appearing unnatural,” according to Expert Reviews.

Us Weekly spotlights the brand’s Deep V Plunge Underwire T-Shirt Bra noting, “if you want serious lift, the padding can add up to two cup sizes while still looking natural. It enhances the bust and gives you a sultrier look that shoppers are obsessed with!”

WingsLove offers a strapless, self-adhesive push-up bra option too. However, The Cut points out, “they really work best for people with smaller chest sizes (before the shape of the cups starts looking wonky).”

3. Natori Bliss Perfection Underwire Contour Bra

“Think of a contour bra like the push-up bra’s cousin. This style features cups specially cut to sculpt the bust in a way that’s more seamless than a push-up’s padding traditionally is,” suggests New York Magazine.

Glamour calls Natori’s Bliss, “surprisingly comfortable. The thin jersey fabric makes this bra nearly invisible underneath fitted tees, body-con dresses, and more. Plus, the colors are gorgeous if you’re over wearing a nude or black bra.”

“Featuring contour cups made with smooth, foam-lined jersey, this timeless Natori underwire bra will meet your everyday needs,” according to Harper’s BAZAAR

4. Deyllo Padded Lace Push-Up Bra

If you prefer a lace push-up, this bra from Deyllo scores high marks from reviewers. The New York Post notes, “its size range is extensive, has a stretchy, soft lace band for comfortable glamour and looks great with your favorite underwear.”

This push-up bra features an underwire design that comes in several different colors to suit your style. Closer Online adds, “customers loved that it was so affordable, comfortable and offered a natural-looking lift.” 

“With 9,000+ verified five-star ratings under its belt, this push-up comes well recommended from Amazon shoppers. ‘This bra does a great job pushing up, and fits great’ one reviewer wrote,” according to Today. One drawback? the padding isn’t removable, so it’s not as customizable as some of its competitors.

Pro-tip: Hand washing is recommended, but if you toss it in the washer, use a laundry bag.

5. Cosabella Never Say Never Pushie Push-Up Bra

Rounding out our top five is this splurge-worthy bra from Cosabella. “You can wear the soft stretch scalloped lace design with the padding when you want a little lift or remove the cups for a more natural look,” according to Byrdie.

It comes in a dozen colors too. Glamour adds, “the shoulder straps are also adjustable and wide-set, which people with small chests will appreciate for the open neckline it creates.”

“Lovely stretch lace and scalloped detailing add a romantic touch to this best-selling push-up bra by Cosabella, featuring removable padding with balconette-style cups to help add cleavage and fullness,” suggests Harper’s BAZAAR. Just note, this one is hand wash only. Don’t throw it in the dryer either.
