Padded Bras have lined cups that give the bust a flattering rounded shape and uplift. They are also useful to conceal the nipples under tight clothing, or break the impact of exercise with a soft padded cushioning. Mio Destino stocks an impressive range of padded bras, with different levels of padding for you to choose from to create the bust shape you desire. Our collection features fun and flirty designs in vivid colours, such as the Lepel range, luxurious bras with hand sewn detailing from Lise Charmel. We even offer heat control padded bras in the Gossard Berlei Sports range, to keep you cool yet supported during exercise. Bras with quite thick padding tend to be more popular amongst the more modest cup sizes, as they can add an extra cup size to your bust. However, lighter padding is also preferred by some fuller busted ladies, and here at Mio Destino we provide you with Curvy Kate’s padded bras, especially designed to accommodate for up to cup size J. The development of the padded bra dates back to the 19th century. This is when the first ‘falsies’ were created, when women would stuff their bodices with pads of wool to create that desirable boosted cleavage. Later, rubber breast pads were created called ‘lemon bosoms’ to serve a similar purpose of creating a larger looking bust. Nowadays, with technological advancements, padded bras feature a more comfortable lining which is softer on the breasts, and a variety of fabrics can be used to create the padded lining, such as memory foam, or gel.
