The best push-up bras are the perfect tool to put a little bit of oomf into an outfit. Don’t get us wrong, our wireless bra collection and sleep bra line-up will always have a place in our hearts (and top drawers) – they’ve served us well over the past few years of WFH, but shopping for a push-up bra is top of our to-do list now that social events are filling up our calendars.
If you personally prefer a bit of a lift and extra padding (especially on nights out), finding a bra that does all of the above can be quite the task. Push-up bras provide that little bit of extra confidence for those who feel they require it so, if that’s you, you’ll probably be looking for the best ones to invest in.
Push up bra for small chest
While someone with small boobs may not require as much support as someone with DD-cup breasts (we’ve found the best bras for bigger boobs here), a push-up bra is still an absolute must-have for everyone.
Forget what you thought you already knew: push-up bras are for everyone, and they needn’t be uncomfortable. Instead, comfort and lift are now synonymous with style and sex-appeal, allowing you to achieve the boost you desire without having your blood circulation cut off. Phew!
Wonderbra Ultimate Backless Push-Up Bra
Why we love it: Famed for their plunge bras, self-proclaimed ‘Queens of Cleavage’ Wonderbra present this backless offering for nights (or days) that require showing off a little skin.
Customers are saying: “Bought this for a low-back dress for a wedding and it was so comfortable. The bottom strap was completely hidden.”
Lace Push-Up Bra
Why we love it: Presented in a darker neutral tone, this lace plunge push-up bra from H&M is elegant and sultry all at once. Nail on the head, then!
Customers are saying: That the straps are a little thin and might struggle to support larger boobs but the colour is great beneath cream-coloured tops.
Faith Push-Up Multiway Bra
Why we love it: Sometimes it can be tricky to find a bra that is both push up and strapless. Luckily John Lewis has thought of this predicament and provided its Faith design, simply remove or adjust the straps to your liking.
Customers are saying: One reviewer said she had this bra on from 6pm until midnight and it didn’t slip down once.
Perfect Fit Lace Push-Up Bra
Why we love it: The lace detailing across the straps, cups and wings of this M&S push-up bra adds a thoroughly feminine feel. The flattering plunge style enhances your cleavage, while its memory foam cups mould to your shape.
Customers are saying: This “pretty” bra was “really comfortable. Love the lace on the back straps which help smooth the appearance.”
