The bra was designed to provide support and comfort to the breasts. A slight difference in the shape and size of a bra can make a huge difference in the overall look of your body. These days, padded bras are more common. I get a lot of questions from various women including concerned mothers of teenagers and relatively elder women, about wearing padded bras. Questions like, can my teenage daughter wear padded bras? Are there any harmful effects of wearing padded bras? In fact, someone also asked me is wearing a padded bra safe? Of course it is! Almost every woman can safely wear padded bras. Here are top reasons why you must prefer padded bras over non-padded ones.
Shape: Wearing a padded bra gives your bust a nicer shape. It flatters any dress. If you want to look good and well-contoured, wearing a padded bra will help you at various levels.

Sports: You can easily sprint while wearing a padded bra while you may feel uncomfortable running in a simple bra. Another reason why women must wear padded bra while running is because running makes the nipples hard and erect.

Embarrassing incidents: Wearing a padded bra can also help you avoid an embarrassing incident like for instance: you are in a meeting with a business client over dinner and the restaurant is really cold, you’ll find that you’re struggling to hide your nipples from showing through your shirt.
