The Miracle Bra
FAQs That Will Surprise You

The Miracle Bra, aka the push up bra. I'm still asked about it several times a week. More than 20 years after its debut by Canadelle lingerie, and a multitude of copycats, pushup bras are still considered to be one of the most innovative exotic bras of the 90’s, and among of the best bras available today for enhancing cleavage.

Essentially a sexy push up bra that maximizes cleavage, the Miracle bra provides a generous boost of up to 2 cup sizes.

So, an A cup can potentially become a C cup, a B cup can be a D cup, etc.

Sexy, fun and a hit right from the start, it's often referred to as "an instant boob job".

In this article I’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) about push up bras that have come up again and again. Read through them and if you have any related questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me by clicking here.

The Miracle Bra - Your Most Asked Questions

What are push up bras made of?

These underwire bras come in a variety of fabrics like nylon, microfiber, lace, satin, polyester and cotton.

But, because they’re designed to maximize cleavage, they’re a little different than traditional bras.

Most have foam padding that’s sewn right into the bra, and can’t be removed. Others offer flexible inserts or cookies made of foam, water, or silicone that can be positioned or removed as you like.

How does a Miracle bra or push up bra give such great cleavage?

padded bras

Through the ingenious combination of padded cups and an underwire.

The inserts are angled to push the breasts together and upward to make them appear much larger and rounder, while giving the appearance of a deeper cleavage.

Basically, a push up bra takes what nature gave you and increases it..... a lot. In addition to the insert, the underwire provides additional support to keep the bra in place.

Lingerie Tip

If you love a smooth and sexy look under tight fitting t shirts, sheer tops or knitwear, avoid lace bras or anything with seamed bra cups.

Instead, opt for a push up bra / Miracle Bra with smooth seamless cups in nylon, satin or microfiber.

Does a push up bra fit the same as my regular everyday bra?

pushup bras

Push up bras come in the same bra sizes as everyday bras, but they won’t feel the same.

A snug bra fit is quite normal because of the extra padding, and underwire. But, a pushup bra should not be too tight that it's uncomfortable.

Comfort is key. If it’s too tight or the cups are spilling over, try the next size up.

Can I wash pushup bras in the washing machine?

Carmen's Tips...

Most lingerie care tags say that machine wash is ok. I don't recommend it. The heat and motion of a washing machine is not kind to any kind of push up bras with padding.

Better to hand wash your best bras and lingerie in lukewarm water with mild soap (Forever New is a good lingerie soap that’s gentle).

Rinse with cool water. Do not wring. Blot any excess water with a towel. Then lay your bra flat to dry. This will extend the life of your bras, panties and intimate apparel!
