I'm pondering whether a push-up bra would be a good idea or not. Some people like them while others think they're a sign of attention-seeking or desperation.

I guess I can see both sides of the deal. I get why some women would want them. They offer great support and give an extra lift for saggy boobs (I don't have saggy ones but a little lift wouldn't be so bad).

However, on the other hand, I can see why people think they're for attention-seekers. Some (not all) girls will use them for the lift and wear super low-cut tops to try and get male attention.

So what do you guys think? I'm on the fence about them.

I don't particularly like them, though there are tops I have where a little lift is a good touch. Overall, however, I think it's more a question of what you're wearing with the push up bra rather than if you are wearing a push up bra.

I'm a guy who thinks they look great. I love cleavage.

you keep posting these threads but you don't post the pictures needed for accurate and meaningful commentary. That is just. not. right.

Depends on the top. With some fabrics/fits, extra shaping makes a more flattering silhouette. I rarely find them comfortable, though...extra padding in hot weather is NEVER preferred. Nobody likes underboob sweat.

Eww! I know! Would you say the same about push-up bikini tops?

It isn't so much about the push-up factor as it is balancing things out and creating a nicer silhouette, as Tabula stated. And if the bra fits correctly, there is no spillage or uber-cleavage just flattering "lifting."

I can't fathom a world in which I would wear push-up bikini tops. I go in the water, my suits are about functionality.

I like to wear balconette bras that provide a little lift but don't create any cleavage or have any padding. I know that I have already said this, but I prefer the curvy silhouette to the baring of skin, and I encounter enough difficulty containing what I do have.
