Stuffing the Bra?

Friday, April 24, 2009

Tissues, socks, cutlets, underwire, padding, there are several items out on the market to perk and enhance the bosom to look a little larger than what nature gave us. So when and where do you use these items? Do you use these items? I have to admit I have never tried those water bras in fear I might pop or leak…frightening mental pictures, could you imagine, “um excuse me Miss you seem to have sprouted a leak”.   Or those floppy bra chicken cutlet looking things, what if one fell out…lol how do you explain that one…"oops, nothing like a little snack on the go!?!" I’m all about a push-up bra though that creates a little extra but doesn’t disappoint when the real things are revealed. To stuff or not to stuff that is the question???

I feel that you should simply make do with what you were given and be happy your unique. However, I think that so long as you're keeping everything together it doesn't hurt to add a little extra oompf. Don't use tissues or socks thogh (totally unnatural, trust me, I tried); go for actual padded inserts. Hope you know what you want to do yourself but please take my advice.

I think not to stuff. Natural is way better. But sometimes one does have to admit that without a bosom, womanly clothes would look less good than they do.

Nature didn't give me a lot to work with up top, but I find that the best way to deal with it is to wear a bra that is properly fitted and use some bronzer to enhance cleavage.

I have not tried these items, but i've seen the water bras, and the plastic is pretty sturdy, i doubt it would leak.

While I had mine surgically enhanced, my best friend uses the "chicken cutlets". Her little girl knows them as "mommy's boobies" and likes to play with them. Well, one day my friend's little girl came into the kitchen playing with something that looked like tan slime and her mom asked where she got it. The little girl replied, "From your boobie, Mommy". My friend ran into her bedroom and one of her chicken cutlets had been demolished and the insides were splattered all over the walls and floor. I guess the little girl just wanted to see what "mommy's boobies" were all about! LOL!

I really don't believe in stuffing anything. I have never used water bras or even planned to. I'm also scared of the leaking part. I'm twenty years old, and I have not felt the need to lie about my cup size. When I was in high school I did feel a little bit conscious about it and a little when I had a boyfriend. But, now at twenty, I feel that I should embrace what I have. My boyfriend has to do with a lot of the confidence that I have because I have talked about it with him and he says that he likes everything natural. If you wear water bras and then you want to take them out or an occasion like swimming... what do you do? People are going to notice the difference. Love your body! If you don't have the "perfect bra size" embrace the other features that you love like your eyes, smile, curves, a butt! =) Gin

I have one of those stick on silicone bras, but it is way to heavy and I don't want my chest to sag from using them too often, so I started to just use them like you would cutlets. They really just make it look like you are wearing a great bra, and give you a bit of shape without making your boobs touch in the middle ( I hate that, more than words can express.)They don't really add a lot of size, which is good I don't want huge boobs that don't fit with my body,(or into my clothes) they just help give them that fuller, bouncy appearance for when I wear low cut dresses and such. In other words, they perk your 'girls' up a bit ;)

I always wear padded bras and waterbras. I am a very small a cup breasts and so i need all the help i can get. hahah, sadly. I've never tried the cutlets of fear that it would fall out or get loose and misplaced and give me a odd looking breast. hahha. But i depends on these bras to give a little bit of a bigger looking breast. I dont want any cosemetic surgey so bring on the underwire bras, waterbras, and pushup bras!

I've never stuffed my bra with socks but I have worn many water bras. At first I was afraid they would pop or leak but I must admit they're very strong. My only suggestion is to be put your water bra away as soon as you wear it, if it gets stepped on it will pop. I wear my water bra when my dress or shirt needs a little more up there than I can do naturally, the water bra just gives the perfect lift I need.

I actually prefer a good push up bra,the types from victorias secret. I've kinda fell in love with the angels push up bra. It uses air not padding or water to give you a little extra. And its not super big difference, just to give you a little perk.

I must admit...I am a bit on the small-ish side. This lends to not always being able to fill out certain tops or dresses, in which case I'll allow myself a little "boost" haha. I usually use a padded bra in those cases, but I also have some adhesive tatas from VS that I use when a bra may not be appropriate due to the style.

I'm pretty conservative and don't like showing off more of my body than I need to, but once in a while when I want to feel sexy I think a push-up bra is a great way to go. I don't like underwire though, so does anyone know of any wireless push-up bras?

I personally see no problem with a little extra padding! Women wear make up to make them prettier or cover up certain things, they will pay hundreds for the perfect jeans that make their bottom look just right, why not give a little extra boost where you need it? I've never stuffed with socks or anything like that, but I swear by Gel push up bras!!! They don't present the same worries as the water ones do because they don't leak, and they give a natural (boosted) look! LOVE THEM!!!

I'm super petite and tiny all over so I'm definitly thankful for inventions like the push up bra and cutlets. I don't wear them on a daily basis; only when I'm going out and want an extra boost of sexy!! The first time that I did wear the cutlets, they did slip out of my bra. Good thing I caught them in time and was able to put them back in place..LOL=) Can you imagine how embarressing it would have been if they did slip out all the way..? Also, I'm married so my hubby is fully aware of my tiny curves so when I take of my enhancements, there's so no surprise! =)

I grew up with my two older brother being teased for being flat-chested. They said i can be confused as a boy instead of a girl. So since high school I have been eyeing on this sets of cutlets, water thingy and those enhancements.. but was afraid of the outcome that it might look so fake on my very little frame. One time at a pool party, i put on tissues in my bikini top, but my guy friends carried me and threw me in the pool!! the tissues didn't came out (thank God) but somebody noticed i became flatter after the incident.So then came my option: those push-up bras that can give me a little BOOST. =) To stuff is great if you can handle it, but knowing what i can handle and cannot, I SAY NO TO STUFFING! Thanks!

I have never stuffed or used any products like that. I like to be more natural. I have used the stick on bras once but that was because the dress needed a bra and was backless. I would be worried all night that a water bra would pop or if I used tissues that they would fall out. I would rather have a good time instead of worrying about my boobs.

I always wear padded bras even though I'm a 40C. I actually had reduction (uplift) surgery after losing massive weight from a gastric bypass years ago, so that added padding makes me feel normal, like I did before my surgery. I like the look it gives me in t-shirts, sweaters, and especially low-cuts. I believe you use what you can to make yourself feel good, and if it makes you look great in the process, well, even better!

I think that when you are going out with some girlfriends and don't plan on "taking anyone home" than where whatever sort of push up, pull up, tighten up, etc. bra you feel like. It won't be of any embarassment since no one will see it. Now if you are planning on meeting someone or are on a date, I would say either go with a regular bra or a push up. A litttle lift is always nice but doesn't take away from what is real. Especially if you are going to be spending a lot more time with this person, you want to stay consistent.

I have found the water bras to be nice to wear under a fancy top. They are really derable so don't worry about springing a leak the only way that can happen this if some one jab with a sharp tool. And as for the cutlets if you get the right ones the sucksoin cup on to your skin. I wear my cutlets when i have been swimming and they have not fallen out yet. As for the push up bra they are my best friend they add that little extra to the perfect outfit.

Get the bras with the 'pouch' with the removable 'stuffin'. That way, the gel packs don't fall out. The gel feels more natural than regular padding. VS has them.

I personally don't stuff mine, but I guess if it makes you feel better then go ahead! Just make sure that no guy finds out or I would think it would be embarrassing. I too am scared to try a water bra. The episode of friends, when Rachel had one and it popped, it was funny, but in a real life situation, maybe not..

I think that it is better not to stuff. The goal is to enhance what you already have, not to create an unrealistic picture. A good, overall supportive bra will give you the lift that you need. Sometimes wearing a normal push-up bra (not one of those that has 5 lbs of padding) can work wonders with certain outfits. Personally, I think that men would prefer to see women wearing normal bras, because I am sure that lots of men have been very dissapointed when the bra comes off and what looked like a C cup is actually an A cup :). After seeing the episode of "Will and Grace" , when Grace's bra sprung a leak I would never consider that .

I think that if your going to take the risk of making your bosom appear larger than it is, then I'd definately suggest wearing a normal push up bra with padding. You dont want to take a chance of a leak or a tissue coming out of your neckline!! Padded push up all the way, all days!

Personally I'm not a huge fan of stuffing the bra unless it's for something like Halloween. It just seems deceptive. Plus I think it's important that we all look different instead of trying to all have the same chest size.

I absolutely believe in a chest enhancing bra that doesn't exaggerate but defines, smooths and maybe lifts a little. I don't think there is anything wrong with it as long as the difference on and off is not so big, no pun intended, that people go running once revealed.

I'm asian, petite, 5'4 and have always been "lacking" in the chest area. During middle school and the beginning of high school I stuffed my bra, mostly with tissues. However, I encountered many setbacks. Once you start, you really can't stop. I mean, you can't go from flat to bossom-y and then back again without drawing attention. So you need to consider the following: 1. What are you going to do when swim suit season rolls around? 2. What kind of "stuffing" should you use? I recommend the chicken cutlets, but make sure they don't make you look overly busty. 3. Do you tell your significant other? Don't they have the right to know that what they are seeing isn't 100% you? Once I hit my sophomore year of high school I was fortunate enough that my breasts grew, and my boyfriend also knows about my "stuffed" past. He just thought it was sad that I wasn't comfortable enough with my body to accept it. So here's my advice for all you girls, your body is always changing and growing. Don't stuff, it can be a hassle. Girls may be much larger than you but embrace your body because it definately beats having to worry about stuffing your bra all the time!

This is too funny. I think rather than working on stuffing, one should tone and exercise the upper body for FIRMER breasts which will create the fullness of a a shaply breast. It's more about shape, and less about volume, guys!

They give you that touch of extra cleavage, and because they go into your bra you dont have to worry about them falling out, and there is no embarrassing explanation at the end of the night when you take your bra off in front of your man!

Well, I have DDs, so I definitely don't stuff. However, I don't think it really matters. I know some women would say that I don't understand because I'm blessed with huge breasts. Small boobs don't look right under shirts and they're not attractive. I hear it all the time from my A cup best friend. But large boobs don't fit under shirts, they're saggy and cause me back pain. It' just different. But, they're me. So I deal with them and rock them the way I feel like it. Smaller breasts are awesome, too. It would be so awesome to not ahve to wear a bra everyday!

yes, admittedly, I "stuff" I use a push-up bra usually (victorias secret has a "very sexy" bra that fits nicely) and also I use the "cutlets" oh well- they work! and its gives a really nice look to the corset shrits I get at charlotte russe... hey, I dont want implants but certain styles only look right on a more volumptuous figure- so, I consider my push-up tricks as part of my wardrobe-

I think that you shouldn't stuff, I think that a nice push up bra like it says works just fine. When I was in middle school I stuffed because I had nothing to push up, but it wasn't really necessary. When you stuff it then the boys might notice later... which would suck. I think though that if you want to wear a push up bra then don't do it if your like a D or more because it is just not right, it gives you way to much cleavage that is not as good as just a normal bra. Push up bras are great, I say that they work just better than stuffing, looks more natural to, at the present with clothes on and maybe in the future with out to.

I would never stuff my Bra!! Im with the idea of a push up, but stuffing is a no no! How do you explain when you take your top off?? Im even ok with the chicken cutlets, but I would be afraid it would fall out too. I am well endowed, but if I wasnt, I would just buy some boobies!!

there are some situations in which a push up bra can do wonders...but inserts and some of the other inventions simply creep me out. Be hppy with what you're given. If you think you need that much work, take another good look at yourself. I have no doubt you're really beautiful.

First question you have to ask yourself is: How would you feel if you found out your man stuffed his pants? It's a little weird, eh? I'd say au naturel is the best way to go, because if people don't like you for what you've got, then they need a personality "lift" :)

I'm all about the push up Bra's as well, although to achieve the look of you're breasts looking fuller without any padding try the bras that cross-cross or have sort of that sprots bra back because it helps pull you're breasts higher and it makes them look fuller.

Perhaps for someone of average size, stuffing is not a big issue since only a little extra is needed. But, there are girls who are "petite" and may need (or feel that they need) "stuffing" to look good. I say that they go for it. As long as it is not surgery. Hopefully, in time, their confidence will grow enough that they will not care what society now days considers "hot" and will be happy and confident with what they naturally have. I'm still working toward that, and I believe I'm pretty close.

So ,I've never stuffed my bra but I use the famous water bras. I love them, make you look like something is there even when there isn't. Only downfall is they are very heavy bras; feels like your carrying around 2 cantalopes. I also have tried a air bra, same effect as the water bra, but built into the bra are 2 little plastic looking things that are filled with air. Go with the air bra; much lighter to wear.

I personally do not stuff and I don't think its a bad concept but I feel that people should be happy with the cup size they are. I think that everyone is beautful in thier own skin. Also, I find that it is upsetting that girls feel the need to stuff to impress other people. I am impressed with a woman who can be honest with herself and work her nautral cup size. Therefore, embrace your body and work with what you've got! =)

As a mom, lifting is always a perk =P. I'm not much for the whole idea of being 2 cup sizes bigger due to stuffing though. I guess it's a matter of self-esteem and pressure to attain that "perfect" size as a girl. This question to stuff or not to stuff wouldn't be an issue if we, as girls, didn't take the pressure. But, society has an image of what we should look like so we go with it. Stuffing, lifting, push-up pads, etc. are pretty much the norm.

I have the opposite problem - I've always been rather generously endowed, running from a 38C to a 40D, depending on the weight issues du jour. Going to an actual lingerie store and trying to find a good, pretty, STURDY bra that doesn't have padding is almost impossible. Some 90-lb. Vogue wannabe with a chest like two fried eggs on an ironing board keeps bringing me padded little wisps of fabric that would work better as earmuffs. I have to stand there, stripped to the waist with the fitting room door wide open to the world and point out that God already gave me enough padding, thank you!

I think the best thing to do is to avoid all those "enhancers" because in the long run, they make you look more fake. And who wants that? Sure cover-up blemishes, put lipgloss on. Ya know? The little things that are simple, easy and in my opinion don't make you look fake. Because we want to be ourselves with no strings attached.

The thing that I like most about them is that they're machine washable and provide decent support. As to whether or not to stuff...why not if they make your clothes feel better?

I still don't understand why women feel the need to be larger or perkier than they are. Women need the self-confidence to see themselves as they are and to truly be happy. There are just as many men out there who like small-breasted women as there are men who like large-breasted women. Wouldn't it be something if you went on a date with a man that really liked your "fake" large boobs!! And something happpened to "dislodge" one of them! What's he gonna think!! He may think that you are very unhappy with who you are to the point that you have to pretend to be something you are not! The world is so full of fakes; you may be pleasantly surprised that more men will take whatever size they are, so long as they are real!!!!!

I've always been a fan of the good old fasion push-up bra (idk if it's really that old fasioned) but I had a friend that tried one of the water bras...hers did pop, maybe it was some sort of freak accident, but it was very embarrassing for her. One of her guys friends came up to her and said "awh man, dontcha hate it when you spill your drink on yourself!? Happens to the best of us though!" HA, I'm sure it does. I have an important party coming up and, since I'm not really blessed in the chest department, I want to fit into my very flattering dress but I have to find a good strapless bra that will enhance my chest (so it actually fits in the dress right). I guess i have some research to do! =]

I have never stuffed with anything that didn't come with the bra. My absolute favorite bras come with the little extra padding (usually the best ones are the gel-filled kind) that can be removed for a more 'natural, not quite as pushed-up' kind of look, or warn for the 'whoa baby!' look. I'm partial to the latter :)

Actually, I *do* sometimes use the 'chicken cutlet' inserts, in combination with a push-up bra. I find that if I tuck it below the breasts, the relatively tight bra keeps it secure and provides the extra oomph I need. (and if not, I can always say that I packed my own lunch )

I say don't stuff. There are so many good quality push up bras for cheap these days, and you can find them almost anywhere. Stuffing your bra is a real gamble. What if it falls out? what if a little padding accidentally peaks from your bra. That would be horrible!...and very embarrassing. Best thing to do is just buy a push up bra or be happy with what you have :).

Most people want what they want to fit into. Not everyone is happy with their self image because society makes it that way. For example, Iíve had friends who Ďd try on shirts/dress and theyíd complain that their breasts didnít fill them out. Even though they have breasts that compliment their body type, the clothes they try on and want to wear say otherwise. If stuffing their breasts make them happy, Iím all for it. For me, the only time I wear sticky cutlets are when Iím wearing shirts/dresses that canít be worn with bras.

So I already have a very full chest but all the sexiest bra's have a little extra padding so I must have them. Well, this strapless bra had extreme padding and lift which looked and felt so real, they use a gel to fill the cups so it forms to your natural shape. I was at work one day and was wearing a hot pink blouse. Summer time was here and I wanted to show a little skin, well I ended up showing more then I planned on. I went over to my boss to hand him some paperwork and he asks me if I am lactating? He was always a jokester so I ignored him but when I look down on my left side all my entire blouse was wet. I touched it and it was like a dry oil gel thing and I was thinking if I spilled anything on myself. I run to the restroom to check it out further and my stomach was wet too, well my Very Sexy bra seemed to burst and was leaking slowly. So I decided to go home and take an early lunch and change. All the girls in office thought it was hilarious...it is funny looking back but I was so horrified at the time! My Very Sexy bra turned into my "Very Messy" bra...lol

I used to be okay with my small size, but would wear a bra with a little push up and/or padding from time to time with a certain outfit. Plus I needed a little evening out since like most women one side is smaller than the other.My husband has no complaints before or after 2 babies, he really loves me the way I am. But after 2 kids even the small boobs "fell down" a bit especially the one that's a little bigger. The size didn't really change they're just lower, so I look even flatter! So now I always wear a padded push up bra and I've even added a push up pad a few times for extra fullness. Sad, huh?

Today however, I respect them and accept what they've become. Ofcourse, nothing wrong with helping them out for events and all, after all I'd want some help too if I had spinach in my teeth. They DO make some bras now that have the built in foam, which is nice. Guess I just like the natural God given blessings I've received.

I used to use the floppy bra chicken cutlet things,lol. I had a cheaper bra that i used with them, and i cut a slit in the inside lining and put them inside so they would not fall out or couldn't be seen. It worked like a charm. I had no issues using them, but I am married and have 4 kids so my hubby knew what was really underneath. So no dissapointments for him when i took it off. I would say that if you are dating or plan on eventually taking your top off for a guy who has never seen them, stuffing is not a good idea.Thank gosh I don't have to use those things anymore. I got the internal stuffing. A boob job.

I think that stuffing is a bit immature, in all honesty. If you're going to shove breast-enhancing items into your bra anyways, you might as well save yourself the trouble and buy a Level 5 swell padded bra from Victoria's Secret (the most push I've ever experienced in a push-up bra). I haven't ever tried a water bra either, but I do think that there are air filled bras now that serve the same function without the leak anxiety... It would be terrible to deflate, though! As much as I think it's ridiculous, I did stuff for this past Halloween - just to fill out my costume better! I think in cases like that a little extra help isn't so bad. :)

I used to stuff my bra before discovering good push up bras. One time a tissue did fall out... not so terrifying when its a tissue, but seriously who wants to see things flying out of your chest. Enhance what your given, Julia Roberts made her b-cups look like Ds in a movie by padding and tape. Not saying you have to go that far but a little natural enhancement is fine, nothing overboard.. we dont want disasters.

I use push up bras all of the time! They are great at making the girls look EXTRA perky for any occasion. I have on occasion gone to the extreme with push ups and my friends (who had not seen me in a while) asked if i had gotten implants... lol. Overall the effect is great and my boyfriend has not mentioned that he was dissapointed or felt deceived, so I am going to keep on pushing!!!

i have never personally used the cutlets or stuffed my bra, but after having my second child i noticed the girls are starting to loose their oomf so i started getting curious. push up bras are heavenly, but can be a little too stiff and do not feel all that natural. those weird water, gel and whipped silicon bras are just plain scary!! (what happens after you wash them??) as for the cutlets......i found myself at wal-mart standing in the bra isle completely mesmerized by them! there were so many!! all they need is some kind of adhesive so they won't slip out and i'm sold! on an episode of the girls next door, holly stuffed with rolled up tube socks. the best part about that is you never would have known if she hadn't said anything, it looked that natural!! so, one night in an effort to entice my husband i broke down and tried the socks....success! all you need is a good bra and one rolled up sock placed underneath and slightly angled up towards your armpits and you are good to go!! killer cleavage for a very low price. :) i did get a few laughs once that bra came off, but seriously, no man is gonna care what the twins look like once the bra is off, just as long as it stays off. ;)

I am one of those who are blessed with an abundance, so much so that I want to get rid of some. I long for my high school days when I was a C, looking for "enhancements". A push-up bra is fine, one of those "miracle" bras would be fine, but anything more is uncalled for. If a guy is just looking for cleavage, do you really want him?

The water bras at Victoria Secret are definitely worth your money. They are very securing, and have never popped on me or my sister at all. The water packaging is in a thick-ish package, so I'm pretty sure it will never pop on you. Victoria secret also has really nice push up bras that accentuate your cleavage. Also, if Victoria Secret is too pricy for your budget, Forever 21 has bras for 4.50 and I personally think it works really nicely. You just need to adjust the straps for the 'padding' effect.

I have tried the victoria secret gel pads that you insert into your bra works great. But then fear that they will fall out hit me YIKES no more of that. Be happy with what you have OR get a loan and have surgery...me I am happy with what I have :)

If it makes you feel better about your appearance, then go for it...I probably wouldn't though just b/c it can become a hassle to maintain without someone eventually noticing it...

I'd say "not to stuff". Women should embrace what they've got, and flaunt it. We're all beautiful, and bigger breasts aren't the answer to true beauty. What happens if say.. you take a hot guy home, and he discovers these? You're saving yourself much embaressment by not wearing these :P

If the less endowed only understood...they are BLESSED. Large breasts droop over time. (Yes folks, gravity works!) The smaller breasted can wear those strapless gowns, halters and bra-less looks without ever worrying about sweat marks (YUCK!) or extra floppy droopage. AND, their breasts continue to look good later in life. Sure, the larger breasts can fill out some of those sexy tops better than the smaller ones can, and big breasts seem to get all the attention...but really, do you want your BREASTS to get all the attention? Be proud of what you've got, wear it well and you'll look good, no matter what size bra you wear!

I have stuffed. When you are 41 years old with 6 children and are a AA cup size, you stuff or pad. My husband is very happy with who I am; however, I would still like a little more to be able to wear certain tops in the summer and feel more "feminine".

I am all for self confidence and being proud of what you were given, even if given only a little, however, i too am not blessed with even just average size breasts. So after having two children, the extra push and cup size that a push up water bra or inserts creates is an extra cool thing, because by now my husband already knows what will be revealed later but nobody else needs to know that!! ; )

I come from a family of very flatchested women, and then there is me, I am a 36J... My sisters wanted MORE. I have ALWAYS WANTED LESS. Reality is we found men that are happy with our sizes. One of my sisters husbands said, all I need is a mouth full. Mine says what ever makes you happy, (I'm scheduled for a reduction next fall) My sister uses waterbras when they want to enhance their clevage. Reality is, you have to make yourself feel confortable and confident in your own skin. If a guy is disappointed that you don't have that much or that you have too much, you have to wonder if he is really worth the trouble. My male freinds and I have discussed it before, trust me if you get to the point the clothes come off, they are just happy you showed up... you can be short, tall, big, small, dark, light, round and stout or tall and lean, for them, the important part is you showed up and you want THEM. Every woman is beuatiful, if comes from within and radiate out our pours, if you feel sexy you are, if you feel beuatiful you are. Put you head in the game where it belongs and let nature take it's course. Have confidence in what you wear, the way you stand, and WHO YOU ARE... the rest is just window dressing...

NOT stuff! I mean I'll admit I do wear push up bras but honestly, I don't have much to "push-up" I don't feel comfortable putting cotton or whatever in my bra...I'd rather go natural. I'm only 14 so I'll grow eventually but for right now I'm happy as I am!!

Natural may be better but considering this blog is on a cosmetic website, I doubt that any of you are completely "natural" to begin with. If stuffing makes someone feel better about themselves (as wearing makeup does for most of us), then by all means, stuff away!
