I like the light padding underwire option because otherwise I have perma-headlights. I'm a 36DD and I am ?blessed? with boobs that look like B-Cs and are pretty high and immobile- pushups would NOT be good. But MAN do these things like to show through even the darkest, thickest sweater. I rarely wear a light-colored top."Well, f*** me gently with a chainsaw."

Uh... I chose Natural. Sorry. I typically just wear camisoles or pasties. Sport tops are nice at times but other than that I don't really need it. Sometimes it's nice to wonder what it would be like with more.

Underwire, padded, and pushed up is the way to go.

I'm all over the spectrum (except au naturale).

Underwire and light padding definitely - I think those are the most comfortable for ME

man, i have no boobs! i like the calvin klein little triangle bras though they are pretty hard to find. i am wearing his lightly padded now and it is so weird for me!

i like calvin klein lightly padded bras because they are comfortable and half the price (32$) of your average designer bra.

Whackdoodle - AGREED!! I am not as big as you, but am usually a double or triple D, and I really don't like anything other than SUPER push-ups, but I don't need padding. Anything else makes me look frumpy, dumpy, and overweight, which I am not. But hiked up to my ears, the girls look AMAZING!!

i prefer pushups without padding - although the girls are generously sized, i've done some yo-yoing in my life as far as weight goes and it's taken it's toll...and the pill has made them larger, even though i'm now maintaining a healthy weight! it just gives them a nice lift without shoving cleavage up to my neck or letting them hang low. :-)

I picked padded and pushed up, because I love the pushed-up effect, even though I really don't wear anything with padding--I'm a 36DDD. Sometimes I wear a minimizer, but I think I look better when I'm nicely supported and lifted.

padding is one thing, but what Lilprincess said about wearing two bras sounds incredibly uncomfortable!

I have small B's..but they fill up when that time of the month comes around and they look FAB..lol. So yeah..underwire pushup with padding for 2.5 weeks of every month! =)

I like a padded full coverage with underwire because it gives the best support for a fuller chest. No padding is NOT an option - I might as well not wear a bra!

I'm an A/B, and I go back and forth. I love the light and airy bras from dkny and tommy with no padding, just underwire. But then when I want some more shape I love my VS fully padded, underwire pushup bras.

as much padding, pushup, underwire as possible!! i have small boobs but i don't want people to know it! sometimes i even wear two bras (a tip i actually read on popsugar that paris hilton does!)

I really don't find padded and pushed up uncomfortable, maybe i'm just used to it.

I am so surprised padded & pushed up is the favorite too! Doesn't it get uncomfortable by the end of the day? I prefer lightly padded & underwire - DKNY bras are the best! xo

Another option not listed was a minimizer, which I wear. I want my double-D's smashed down as much as possible.

I'm a D... I need underwire for support but definitely don't need padding. I'm jealous of those who can go without a bra, my roommates do it all the time but I'd look ridiculous.

I hate bras. I love going au naturel. But for the sake of practicality, I wear one of each just to be presentable.
