Up, Down, Side To Side

Being Creative

Pads have always meant one thing to every woman: bigger and better cleavage! But, over the years many have discovered several additional clever uses. Let's take a quick look...

  • Symmetry – contrary to what we're led to believe, no one is perfectly symmetrical. You've probably experienced this when shoe shopping. One shoe is always larger or smaller than the other and you usually end up buying shoes to fit your larger foot. Breasts are much the same way, and for many women the difference in breast size is quite noticeable. As a result, it can be a real struggle finding a bra that fits. One bra cup fits perfectly for the larger breast; however, the smaller bra cup ends up wrinkled and deflated. And, as a result clothes don’t fit well. To solve this problem many women turn to bra pads strategically placed to “even out” the smaller bra cup. It's non-invasive, quick, painless and affordable. A clever solution to a very common problem!
New Mums

– most new mothers who decide to nurse their babies love their new-found cleavage. However, when they stop nursing it's a different story and the lush and wonderful cleavage often vanishes quickly, almost overnight.

  • Many new mums have discovered a clever solution to this problem through the use of brassiere pads. Comfortably positioned in the bra cups, these pads or “bra enhancers” enable them to regain what was lost after nursing their babies. A no fuss, no muss solution for busy new mums who want a little lift!
