The right underwear can make all the difference to any outfit, and push-up bras are at the top of our lingerie list when it comes to enhancing cleavage and defining silhouettes. We love the curve-boosting powers of a great push-up bra, and this season brings us a host of luxurious choices.
Lifting, shaping and boosting is what push-up bras are all about, maximising our sense of femininity when we want to feel extra confident for that weekend party or special event. With practical features like padding, underwire and adjustable straps at our disposal, push-up bras are the perfect foundation for party dresses, slinky separates and low-cut tops.
Functional, supportive and comfortable as they are, we also want our push-up bras to look great and express our individual style. Look for lace finishes, sheer panels and floral prints to pretty-up your underwear drawer, while silky materials will give a sense of luxury and feel great against the skin. And don't relegate your push-up bra exclusively to nights out and formal occasions. Casual pieces like a snug v-neck jumper, fitted t-shirt or blouse will also get a lift with the right bra. Just remember to balance these separates with longer-length skirts and tailored bottoms or bootcut jeans to avoid the faux pas of showing too much skin.
