As you shop for the best seamless bras for your daughter, you may be wondering if they have padding or not. Padding isn’t always necessary or desired in bras, especially if those bras are for girls who are still growing. While padding on bras is rather common, you may be looking for bras that don’t have padding at all–or at the very least, ones that don’t have much of it.
Today, we’ll talk about padding in seamless bras. Don’t feel like you need to settle for a bra with padding when plenty exist without it! Seamless bras don’t typically have padding, but some brands offer a light amount of padding. We explore these options below.
What Does Padding Do?
Before we talk about how much padding you may want in your daughter’s bra, let’s discuss what padding does in the first place. This feature in bras makes breasts look fuller and rounder, but doesn’t necessarily offer any comfort or health benefits.
Padding, wires, and molding can make these bras a bit harder to store. You need to stand them up and put one cup inside the other. If you’re wondering how to store seamless bras without padding, it’s simple. You can fold them and place them on top of each other just like her undies to save space in your daughter’s drawers!
Based on that description, it can be hard to see why you’d want padding in a preteen or teenage girl’s bra, but are seamless bras supportive without it? Thankfully, they are. Our seamless bras offer support through thick fabric with full coverage, so there’s no padding needed.
Seamless Bras Without Padding
Seamless bras without padding offer the smoothest silhouette. Padding can look awkward and out of place on girls who are still developing, so it makes sense to shop for bras that don’t have this feature.
Your daughter’s seamless bras may still have molded cups in them, but this is not the same as padding. The cups maintain a round form and they provide limited coverage. If she’s looking for a seamless bra without cups in them, a training bra may be her best bet.
Seamless Bras With Light Padding
So, is padding always a bad thing in preteen and teen girls’ bras? Not necessarily. It could come in handy if your daughter’s breasts are growing unevenly or if she has a disproportionate bra size. It could also provide support for girls with larger chests. While padding adds a bump to the inside of a bra, the fact that the bra is seamless should still make it relatively smooth.
In a Nutshell
Seamless bras for teens and preteen girls really don’t need padding, but padding is an option if your daughter wants it. For the smoothest look and most appropriate features, we recommend going without padding.
All of our seamless bras come without padding, so you won’t need to worry about how appropriate they are for your daughter. They’re breathable, machine washable, and made for everyday wear. Shop our basics collection to see what we have to offer!
