A padded bikini is a type of bikini that features a top with padding built into the cups. The padding can be made from a variety of materials, such as foam or gel, and is designed to add volume and shape to the breasts. The padding can also provide additional support and lift to the bust. The bottoms of a padded bikini can be any style, such as a thong, a Brazilian cut, or a moderate cut.
Padded bikini tops can come in a variety of styles such as a triangle, a balconette, or a bandeau. The padding is usually removable, which allows the wearer to adjust the level of lift and support. Padding can also come in different thickness and shapes, to create the illusion of bigger breasts or to shape the breast in a certain way.
