Kylie Jenner let the world in on a big secret this week when she confessed on her new app/website that her ample breasts aren’t actually the result of plastic surgery, but…wait for it…wearing a padded bra. It’s a very specific bra too: The Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Bra.
Is she for real? Cosmopolitan.com decided to put the bra to the test with six real-life women with six different-size boobs. They only changed bras—no extra help like cutlets or tape or body contouring. Read on (or just look) to find out what happened:
“I gave up on having cleavage a long time ago, so I admit having a shadow between my boobs made me feel more womanly. But also, it felt like I had a fanny pack full of snacks strapped to my boobs. My boobs and skin were so pushed up that I kept checking to make sure my nipples were still covered. Are bouncy boobs worth the constant anxiety of an impending nip-slip? I don’t know.”
“I love my small boobs as they are, but it was fun to see how big they became. I actually couldn’t believe how much cleavage it gave me, because I’m so used to having none!”
“Being relatively flat-chested, I always wear a slightly padded A-cup bra. So when I opted into this experiment, I didn’t expect any miraculous transformation since I don’t have much boob for a push-up bra to push up. But the bra definitely gave my boobs and my confidence a noticeable boost. I was pouringout of the cup! While I was pretty impressed with the natural-looking cleavage I acquired while wearing the bra, I didn’t love the cup shape and felt a little lame faking my breast size. I mean, I could have easily passed for a big C! While I could see wearing this bra with a low V-neck dress for some kind of fancy occasion, the pumped-up cleavage felt like a little much for every day.”
“It definitely improved my cleavage, but the padding was so intense that I felt like I had a sofa strapped to my chest. If this is what it takes to look like Kylie, I’ll pass. ”
“I usually wear bras with no padding and I never really think about how my cleavage looks—probably because I’ve never had any. Before wearing the bra, I was skeptical of how much of a difference it would make, but I underestimated how insanely busty it would make me look. It was kind of novel to have boobs for once, but I was distracted by the inches of padding covering my chest. My breasts felt super supported but I also felt a little trapped in all that padding.”
“I already have kind of big boobs and never wear padded bras for that reason, but I was pretty intrigued to try this one out just for kicks and giggles. As I suspected, my bosom was plentiful. This is definitely a fun bra option if I ever want to switch it up and look extra sassy. You might actually have to be Kylie Jenner to pull off this kind of cleavage for everyday life though.”
