A padded bra, whether part of a sports top or built into actual undergarments, uses foam and other artificial padding to increase apparent breast size or improve breast shape. In that sense, padded bras are a cosmetic.

Bra pads can also take the form of separate foam inserts that a woman places in a bra, a sports top, or swimwear to serve the same purpose of enhancing the visual breast size. Fill it out with a padded bra.
