What is a bra pad? You might feel intrigued at first sight of the wording. What is a pad? Why is it called a push-up? What are they for? Why do we use pad time? There are different synonyms for the term bra pad: the bra insert, the pad, the silicone, foam or fabric cushion, the sponge, or even the non-adhesive nipple cover. . All of these lingerie hacks have one thing in common. They slip into the bra and are removable. These pads have been created to provide superior comfort to the breast whether it is greater volume, protection for the breast or the shoulders. The pads are made for your comfort first and foremost. It may be suitable for all women who do not feel comfortable enough with their bra because it may have hurt them in the past following a change in morphology or for women who wish to add extra volume to their bra. their bra. What is the push-up effect? Before analyzing the usefulness of a push-up pad, let's look at its essential function, the push-up. What is a push-up? In what situations do we use them? It is a lingerie solution or a garment capable of lifting the breasts or bringing volume to the chest naturally and effortlessly. Many women can feel complexed by their appearance and the image they give to others. With the influence of the media and social networks, the cult of the body is increasingly stigmatized and women by all means look like their idols on television. Be sure of one thing, every woman is different and that's the main thing. Every body is beautiful and all women deserve to feel good about themselves. In order to avoid having to resort to surgery, many women have chosen to turn to push-up solutions. More affordable and removable, wear the plunging neckline of your dreams for an evening and regain your figure the next day. There are different solutions to obtain an up push effect on your clothes. The first classic solution is the push-up type bra. This bra has been specially designed to meet the needs of women wishing to add extra volume to their breasts. It can be composed in two ways. Either the pads are sewn into the bra as a permanent part of the bra, or the pads are removable. The advantage of the second solution allows its user to remove and put back her pads whenever she wishes according to her needs. You could go to work with your bra in the classic position and put on the push up pads at the end of the day to look your best before your hot date. Have the possibility to choose to be free to have a more or less important neckline according to your desires. Thus, the pads turn out to be a good solution to avoid having different bras depending on the need you are looking for. We therefore distinguish between two different types of pads: push-up pads and invisible pads. What are push-up pads used for? Let's analyze the first category of bra pads, the push up pads. What are they for ? How do we put them? When can we put them and for what uses? These bra pads, or bra paddings, consist of two symmetrical elements of foam, silicone or fabric. They are fixed in the bra to bring you natural volume to the chest in the blink of an eye. These push-up pads can be divided into two categories: adhesive removable pads and non-adhesive removable pads. Non-adhesive removable pads are the most common pads we see commercially. In fabric, sponge, silicone, position them inside your bra according to your expectations. The removable adhesive pads have an additional feature, the self-adhesive part. Unlike the previous category, these pads have an adhesive part. Peel off the backing of the product and attach it to the inside of the bra. Sometimes some people are bothered by the fact that the non-adhesive removable pads are not attached to the bra. Indeed, it can happen that if they are not well positioned in the bra, they can be bothered by the product or the pad can move according to the movements of the consumer. We advise you to carefully follow the instructions for use present in the packaging for optimal support and comfort throughout their use. Lingerie solution brands have therefore invented removable bra pads with an adhesive part so that this pad is fixed in the bra to prevent it from moving around in your bra during the day. Today there are also adhesive pads dedicated to swimsuits to display a devastating neckline on the beaches. Now let's look at the second category of bra pads, invisible pads. What are invisible pads used for? Invisible pads are a relatively different type from the pads we just discussed. It happens that some women are injured by their bra following a bad choice of model or size. The straps are likely to dig into the shoulders of the consumer, eventually creating marks on her body. The bra must be a tool of comfort and support to free the woman. It was not designed to create health problems or inconvenience its consumer. The bra must free the woman of her movements and support her on a daily basis. It is for these reasons that lingerie manufacturers have created invisible pads at the service of women, their comfort and their health. Designed to be invisible under clothing, they will accompany you throughout the day as if you were not wearing them. Invisible to the eyes of others, they will know how to make themselves essential for you. Often made of silicone, they can be reused several times without risk of being damaged.

Women must feel free but above all comfortable with their bodies and their surroundings. There are many lingerie solutions that allow women to feel comfortable with themselves and with their femininity. Transparent suspenders are just one product among dozens of others that you can discover to help with your daily comfort. When to wear transparent braces? Sometimes women are skeptical about transparent suspenders. They can read many articles that are sometimes not very complimentary on the subject and prefer to do without them without having tried them. But they ignore the extent of the possibilities that transparent suspenders can bring us. Indeed, the transparent straps offer you a range of possibilities to allow you to be free of your movements. Take the images of transparent suspenders from the 1990s out of your mind. Today, transparent suspenders are back in fashion to slip under your everyday and party outfits. But then, when do we have the possibility of putting on transparent suspenders? Are there codes to respect to wear transparent suspenders and stay trendy? It should be remembered that you are free in your actions and that you are the sole judge of what to do or not to do in terms of fashion. Fashion trends are so volatile that one day a product can be trendy and the next day out of date. But also know that you just have to be patient because fashions change and, at some point, your favorite pieces will come back into fashion. Transparent straps can be worn every day. During the summer with a little beach dress or in winter under a long oversized sweater, these straps can slip everywhere under your clothes. Don't neglect comfort for style. The silicone material of this style of suspenders adapts to all seasons and moments of life. Not afraid to sweat with them, they will stay in place and won't risk slipping on your shoulders unlike classic bra straps. There is therefore no privileged season to choose transparent suspenders. The important thing is above all to feel good in your bra, whether in terms of comfort, well-being or support. Be sure to properly adjust your straps using the adjustable straps to maximize your comfort during use. The advantages of transparent suspenders You may be skeptical about transparent suspenders following testimonials from your relatives or on the networks, but it turns out that transparent suspenders have certain advantages capable of facilitating your daily life. What are the advantages of transparent braces? Unlike classic suspenders, transparent suspenders are more malleable. In fact, silicone is often more resistant than the materials used for classic suspenders such as nylon, lycra, tulle or plastic materials which react badly to washing and quickly damage the product. Indeed, after a few washes, plastic materials tend to react badly to washing machines and gradually lose their resistance to time and are less elastic. This results in less support for the breasts and ultimately injures the shoulders of the consumer. If you want your bra with removable straps to last longer, do not hesitate to alternate from time to time with transparent straps to ensure that you keep this bra longer with equal support without hurting yourself. If you need extra support that a bandeau doesn't, transparent straps are for you. Indeed, some women have a fairly heavy chest that prevents them from wearing strapless bras because of the weight. They are therefore forced to wear bras with colored straps, sometimes in a different color than their dress or top, to be able to wear the outfit of their dreams. This is too visible and they are very often embarrassed. Don't be embarrassed anymore! Free yourself from constraints and adopt transparent straps! Be aware that these straps will be almost invisible under transparent materials such as tulle, lace or organza. However, you will have the certainty that you will be sufficiently supported without fearing that your bra will fall to your knees. Have you ever lost your bra because of the weight of your chest? This is an uncomfortable time in your life because you didn't want to show off your bra so you decided to wear it strapless. Unfortunately, you are at a party, and your bra has fallen off. You must then quickly run to the bathroom to readjust your outfit. This wouldn't have happened if you had decided to go with the transparent straps, your trusted partner for an all-night wear bra that won't neglect your comfort or be susceptible to injury. How to put them? You have endless possibilities when it comes to using transparent straps. Indeed, transparent straps are above all removable straps. You will have the possibility of attaching them to bras with notches dedicated to this purpose. Some bras have been created to have the possibility of removing, changing or modifying the place of the straps. This is a bra with removable straps. These bras can come in different forms such as classic bras, bandeau bras, balcony bras with removable straps or multi-position bras like our Divine bra. Each of these shapes have one thing in common, they have the possibility of removing and/or putting on straps. Inside the bra, you can find kinds of notches. These pieces of fabric, or elastic have been specially designed to accommodate bra straps. Each strap is designed on the same principle. They have a hook at each end to attach to one of the notches of the bra and a slider at the strap to adjust the length of the strap. What are the different possible shoulder strap positions? Just like every removable bra strap, you have several options for strap position to allow your bra to adapt to the garment you have chosen. You can first choose the classic position which corresponds to the two parallel straps on the shoulders. Choose the outer notches of the bra at the front of the cup for the first hook and towards the middle of the back for the second hook. Repeat the same action for the second strap. This position is ideal for tops or dresses that are bustiers, or that have a transparent part at the shoulders where classic colored straps would not give a harmonious result. The second position is cross back. Start putting the straps on at the front of the bra like the classic position. Once the straps are installed, hook the right strap on the back notch on the left, and the left one on the right. You will get a cross back. This strap position is very practical for tops that have a cross back, a cross or a racer back that prevents you from having parallel straps in the back. The transparent suspenders will know how to make themselves more invisible than classic suspenders because they have the ability to be a second skin effect. We can also distinguish two variants in this position, it is the crossed front and the double crossed. Instead of crossing in the back, you have the option of crossing in front while keeping your back parallel. This makes it possible to adjust to openwork tops in the front. You can also cross front and back for more style. Do not hesitate to lengthen your straps to avoid overtightening your shoulders at the risk of injuring yourself. Two last positions are still possible. First of all the asymmetrical strap. Place one strap on one shoulder in the normal way, and cross the second as in a crossed back. This will allow you to wear a dress with an open shoulder. The last position is around the neck. Loosen one strap as much as possible and position it on the left side of your chest. Then place the strap around your neck by hooking the second hook on the right of your chest, symmetrical to the first. You will therefore obtain a backless bra. If your clip is visible, we advise you to use clip covers like our product So Bow.
