I have quite small boobs and after BF 2 babies they have lost a lot of fullness on top. I'm looking for something to make them look fuller and give a bit of a lift. Style and make suggestions would be much appreciated thank you.

Bumping as currently feeding #2 and wondering about after.

Balcony style.

Apparently Debenhams have brought out one that has a bit of padding at the top as well as the usual bit underneath. Can't remember what its called though sorry!

Plunge style makes me look pre-baby.

balcony, not plunge

something like this, pretty and bargainous

I find Frost French bras are a good fit

I buy the plunge padded/moulded ones in Debenhams. Think it's a Debenhams own brand. The padding in the bottom pushes the breast tissue up so you get a bit of fullness back at the top. And the bra I buy doesn't push them together but up in a natural position.

I don't find balcony flattering & my boobs sound the same as yours after breastfeeding 3.

Actually think it's Ultimate mega boost plunge

Fauve padded half-cups give amazing shape and lift

M&s have a bra called youthful lift that is designed for this issue

Balcony every time. They seem to keep everything northwards, whilst plunge bras don't.

when I wear a plunge bra my boobs just end up as two puddle in the middle

I have the same issue and usually wear a balcony style, but I recently got a Playtex contour perfection bra which is specifically for women who have lost fullness at the top of the boob. It gives a really nice shape and also doubles as a t shirt bra as it's nice and smooth, and the nude shade won't show under white t shirts.

It's in the sale at the moment too!

how is that Playtex bra on sizing, MrsK ?

it's quite fugly but looks effective

MrsKravitzFromAcrossTheStreet Mon 29-Jun-15 11:13:13

Well I have it in my usual size (34C if anyone's interested!) and it fits much better than my other bras in that it doesn't gape at the top of the cup when I move and it hugs my shape IYSWIM. It really doesn't look to ugly on I don't think. I'm going to order the matching knickers as they're in the sale too.

I wasn't intimating it would look fugly on you, promise smile

I am just not keen on those "nude" types...they do nothing for me

I have the same issue and also got the Playtex bra- it has restored a lot of confidence for me. The half-empty thing is so annoying!
