Lingerie Lessons | Padding Scale

Our goal at The Little Bra Company® is to provide a full lingerie wardrobe for our petite customers. Not only does this include a variety of bra styles but also the option of different padding levels.

One of our most frequently asked questions is what type of padding is in a bra. We’re here to tell you everything you need to know about our padding scale. The Little Bra Company® uses a padding scale of 0 to 5 to inform the customer how much padding is in a TLBC bra. Five (5) is the most padded giving maximum push-up. Zero (0) is unlined with no padding. Each level of padding gives you a graduated lift and volume.

Within this scale there are some styles that have a range of padding. For example, styles like Ethel, Carol, and Ava have a padding level between 1-3. These styles have lightly lined cups and include removable “cookies.” Therefore, when the “cookies” are inserted to add extra oomph the bra padding level increases.

To make shopping simpler you may filter by your preferred padding level on our bras page here. The level of padding for each bra is also listed on the product page of each style.

What padding level do you prefer, a little or a lot of oomph? Let us know by liking your favorite styles on our social media pages.
