Do you think training bras should be padded??? Is it just me, or is this just a really bad idea

I saw an add in Justice For Girls and the bras they sell 28-36A cups are padded!! I think this is crazy?
Thoughts? Opinions?

  • Well, I wear padded bras because I don't like everyone and their mom to know when I'm feeling a little chilly, if you know what I mean. So as long as it's just a little padding and not like a push up bra, I don't really see anything wrong with it.

  • I think it depends on how padded they actually are. If they are padded to add to the boobs no. But if they have a thicker layer of material that is kind of padding I like it because it keeps things away from a sensitive area. Just one layer of material is not enough for me. Kind of like the person above me mentioned.

  • WHAT!!!! Absolutely not...i can't believe they would put padding in training bras!!! What are these companies hoping to teach these young girls?

  • That store for little girls no, but the womens bras, I prefer the ones that are padded with a little lift but I am only a B CUP I was a D Cup when was nursing.

  • LOL..If I rememebr correctly...when I was in training bras..there was NO NEED to buy padded ones because my friends and I were experts at padding them ourselves! LOL

  • I cringe at the little bras I see in the little girls depts, they're underwire and padded, for little girls! I'm either so out of touch, or the world is just insane. I think it's terrible. Make the feel older, and want to look older, and it's just not needed, it leads to trouble imo. Scares me. I have boys right now, but I've always wanted a girl and part of me is just scared to have a little girl with the way the world is today.

  • Well no not to look like they have a rack.....but I can see maybe a modest pad to cover the nipple in a thin shirt. I hate when you can see nipples threw the shirt lol. So maybe just to make a girl feel more comfortable if she gets a chill or something.

  • I dont see why training bras need to be padded. The girls have nothing but with padded its going to look like they have something which isnt needed
