I don't like them because it isn't honest about what your size really is...I just don't see the point of them.
It's dishonest really.

If a padded bra is being dishonest then is wearing spanx honest or wearing make-up? Also, are women who wear wigs being dishonest?

Lol yea men have complained how women wear all these things and then look different when all the stuff comes off. They can get over it and there are plenty of people that don't wear that stuff either. Everyone's different.

I wear padded but not a lot of padding. Doesn't misrepresent me as far as I can tell. I wear them so I don't walk around with my "headlights" on all the time. I am such a girl and always cold, so there they would be lol. It's more about comfort I think. Plus IMO they provide more support. I feel like I'm floppin in those satiny ones lol

My daughter has scoliosis as well but she wears padding to help even her out. The effect of the rib hump and rotation of her rib cage makes one side more than a full size smaller. When in reality she is only slightly lopsided. It's hard fir her since she is only 15 and body image is important at that age. She is pretty and has good self esteem but we all have something

I have all types of bras and wear whatever makes me look best under the top I want to wear. Lately I like the layered look and I find camisoles or sports bras that pretty much flatten me out look best. I wear push ups under plunging necklines.

Rytoka---does your daughter wear a racerback bra or a regular type bra? I have read that raceback is good for scoliosis.

Do you mean lined or padded? I started wearing lined after I graduated from college so my headlights don't show. They make me look a cup size larger than with unlined bras. I still prefer unlined and cute lacy bras but I'm always cold and headlighty and it's annoying with dudes.

This. I'm also decently large on top (36D) and find push-up bras to be more supportive, especially since my normal pace is speed walking. Made the switch after discussing this with another ample-cheated woman who worked at VS. the only time I skip the padding is if I'm dressing with the intention of undressing in front of someone, which hasn't been the case in a very long time.

She has both but I think she prefers the standard straps so she can wear tanks. But all of her sports bras are racer back. Also the few racer back ones she has she has told me are uncomfortable, maybe it has to do with her type of curve? I think they cut in under her shoulder blade on the rib hump side.

I have both but my everyday wear ones would be considered lined. My favorite is VS, the one they use for checking fit. Don't remember what it's called.

I wear padded because I think my clothes fit better, my boobs naturally sit wide so I prefer the shape I get with them pushed up. Also I have what my bf refers to as "national geographic nips" which I prefer not to be on show for the world to see.

I have some. Most if mine are "lined" not padded. I have 2 or 3 padded ones. I'm not fond of the heavily padded ones because they are either too hard or just outrageous.

I'm a 38c.

I used to wear heavily padded...but hardly do now. I mainly where lightly padded just so I don't nip.. Thanks to breastfeeding my nipples are now bigger than they use to be so lightly padded is a must for most days.
