Push Up Bra Technology
A push up bra is fitted with some type of “bra” technology that is built into the bra’s cups. It would seem that the underwiring is the lifting mechanism but the shape and cut of the bra cups also give a push up bra its uniqueness. Push up bras for plus size apparel are usually padded with inserts that look like small pillows which actually push the breasts up for that extra cleavage.

Before trooping to the big women’s lingerie section for a bra, it is a must to get the exact measurement of the buyer. The proper way to determine the cup size is to measure under the armpits and over the fullest tip of the breasts. Then measure at the rib cage just below the breasts. Subtract the two measurements where the
difference is the cup size. An inch difference is cup A, a two-inch difference is cup B and so. This also applies to big size push up bra.
