Plastic surgery is expensive. That is definitely no secret. Stars pay millions to have the bridge of their nose adjusted, or the height of their cheekbones lowered, or the size of their lips increased. And that is just on the face.

When it comes to body surgery, it can be even more expensive. Still, some can afford to go out of their way to get their bust-size increased. But that is not why you are here. You are here for the alternative – for bra inserts. So let’s take a look at how to wear silicone bra inserts.

What Are Bra Inserts?

To put it simply, bra inserts are the answer to that famous sales pitch: “What if you wanted bigger boobs but did not want to spend heaps of cash on them?”

Well, maybe the pitch is not that famous, but it sure could be. That is right, bra inserts can make your bust seem bigger without it actually needing to be bigger. They are small, fitted “cutlets” which you can place over your breasts. Do not worry about them being uncomfortable though – these bra inserts are generally beige in color, and they feel like normal breast tissue. Best of all, they are reusable, meaning you will not be forking out more money each month for a new set of breasts.

What Makes Silicone Bra Inserts Different From Other Bra Inserts?

Silicone bra inserts are your best choice if you are going for a complete bust enhancement. They are plastic pads that you can place at the bottom of your bra to give you more shape, lift, and cleavage. They are typically transparent and come in either round or half-moon shapes.

Most other types of bra inserts focus on improving one element of your bust, but silicone inserts can improve everything.

How to Wear Silicone Bra Inserts

Step One

Wash the underside of your breasts before you place anything on them. This will help to keep your inserts clean.

Step Two

Start by putting your bra on and adjusting it until it is sitting comfortably. The inserts will be added once it is on.

Step Three

When your bra is on, you can add the inserts. Pull the cup of the bra forward to allow a place for you to slip the insert in. Make sure that the thickest part of the insert is placed at the bottom, coming between your bra and your skin. Repeat this for the other insert.

Step Four

Get dressed into something and look in a mirror to see if any adjustments need to be made. This step can be avoided, but it is better to be safe than sorry. You do not want one of your breasts to seem lopsided! You can also keep checking throughout the day, just to make sure everything is still in place.

How to Wear Inserts With a Bathing Suit

Step One

Find the top of your bathing suit. This is where there should be an opening made for bra inserts. If there is no opening, do not worry. You can make one yourself.

Step Two (Optional)

If your bathing suit does not have an opening, you can make one yourself. Just grab a pair of scissors and cut a small slit (about 1 to 2 inches wide) in the lining, near your bust line. The most discreet of slits can be cut into the corners of your bathing suit along your bust line. Be careful to only cut the lining and not the suit itself.

Step Three

Add the inserts to the bra by pushing them through the opening or slit. If you are struggling to get it to fit, before you cut a bigger slit, try folding the insert in half before you put it in.

Step Four

Adjust the inserts as needed. Full-cup inserts should take up all the space inside, and half-size inserts should only line the bottom of the bust line.

Step Five (Optional)

Sew the opening or slit shut if you want to keep the insert permanent.

Caring For Inserts

To keep the inserts clean and hygienic, it is best to wash them after use. For cloth inserts, cleaning is easy as you can simply add them to all your other clothes. For silicone inserts, however, it requires just a little bit more work on your part, but not much.

Start by running the inserts under some hot water and applying hand or dish soap to a cloth. Clean the cups by rubbing the cloth in a circular motion across them. Be sure to wash any excess soap off first before you let them dry.

Drying silicone inserts is easy, and takes less time than drying cloth inserts. Just leave them out in a warm, dry place for about half an hour and they will be good to go.


Maybe the not-so-famous, age-old question of “What if you wanted bigger boobs but did not want to spend heaps of cash on them?” will get a better answer someday, but for now, silicone bra inserts are a great way to emulate that.
