March 27th was National Cleavage Day 2013, and in honour of this celebration of all things busty, we’ve picked out five fab boob-boosting bras guaranteed to give you a cleavage to be proud of, whatever your size or shape.
Wonderbra Natural Lift Bra, £30
National Cleavage Day was launched by Wonderbra, so Wonderbra has to feature in our list, and the brand’s latest innovation is the Natural Lift bra, its first non-padded push-up. The Natural Lift bra uses a unique, thin and flexible push-up device to give a natural rounded effect and all the Wonderbra cleavage without bulky padding. It comes in three colours – black, navy and nude – and in sizes 32-38 B-D and 30-38 DD-G.
Gossard Superboost Lace Plunge Bra, £29
Gossard describes its best-selling Superboost Lace plunge bra as a ‘no holds barred’ cleavage bra. Pretty and feminine, the Superboost lace is a subtler option that the brand’s Superego Boost cleavage-maximising bra, but is nevertheless shaped and style to enhance the bust. It features removable push-up pads in the A-D cup sizes, while D to G cups are padding free. Back sizes go all the way up to a 44.
Gok Wan Bombshell Plunge Bra for Simply Yours, £30
The nation’s favourite style guru Gok Wan has created a lingerie range for plus size lingerie retailer Simply Yours, which includes several ‘banger boosting’ styles. The Bombshell Plunge Bra is all about glamour, with a deep plunge front and vintage lace overlay with a subtle gold trim. It also features padded straps for extra comfort, and comes in sizes 34-42 A-F, 44 A-E and 46 A-DD.
Ultimo The One Lace Plunge Bra, £21
Ultimo launched The One bra in March 2012 with the bold claim that it would revolutionise the lingerie world with its natural looking cleavage and everyday comfort. The bra, which took two years to develop, uses an innovative satin sling to banish the dreaded ‘double boob’ look while super lightweight foam cups lift and project the breasts. It comes black or marine and in sizes 32A to 38E.
Our favourite: Marlies Dekkers Dame de Paris Padded Push Up Bra, £69
It’s a pricier option, but the Dame de Paris Padded Push Up from Marlies Dekkers is a fantastic bra that combines great boob-boosting with fun, modern strapping detail that enhances the cleavage. Great as a T-shirt bra or as a fashion statement in itself, this bra is comfortable to wear all day long, gives a lovely shape and makes you feel fabulous. It comes in sizes 32A to 38 F. £69
Of course, there are loads of great cleavage-boosting bras out there. Which are your favourites?
