I've been looking forever for a natural fiber bra that has padding/coverage that is also natural fibers so that I can use it in a modest work environment. I've literally been on this quest for years and while there's plenty of bras that are made with natural materials, if they have padding it's always some kind of foam or petroleum based product. FINALLY found this bra, purchased one and already love it so much I've ordered two more. I wasn't looking for a push up bra and I can't speak to its effectiveness in "pushing up" anything, but its perfect to provide modest coverage - just enough padding to still be lightweight but nothing shows through. I've washed and ironed it and it handled like a champ. Thank you so much Lacy Linen!
