Choosing a Booty Enhancer (Padded Underwear Department)
by Karen Jones (Bubbles Bodywear CEO) 

I started Bubbles Bodywear in 2003 because I had an idea for a revolutionary way to boost the booty (and I had a very flat bum!). Since then, I have been designing butt-boosting body shapers ~ and I think it's safe to say that I'm the only person in the world who can say that she has spent 9 years designing bum enhancing underwear!

And nowadays, almost ten years later, I still read the feedback we receive from customers on a daily basis, and I also sometimes pick up the phone and talk directly to our customers because only when I find out what our customers need, can I improve the comfort and customizability of the styles we offer.

And if there's one thing I've learned from chatting with our customers, it's that choosing the right underwear style is an enormous challenge, especially when shopping on the internet. So I thought I would offer some shopping advice here on our blog, from my perspective, for new buyers of our padded underwear products...

If this is your first time shopping for padded underwear or booty lift shapewear, start by shopping for a panty/pad set (pictured above). What does this mean? Well...we sell panties that have pockets built-in to hold booty pads in place on the body ("pocket panties"). We also sell interchangeable butt padding. The panties and pads can be purchased separately, but we recommend this option only for people who are already familiar with these products and know which panty style and pad type that works best for them.

For padded underwear newbies, we suggest starting in the Padded Underwear Department on our website which includes all our panty/pads sets. These sets have been designed to go together so you can rest assure that when buying one of these sets, that the pad will fit perfect in the panty and will provide a natural and realistic boosting effect.

And buying sets is always more economical than buying the panties and pads separately. So save money and make sure you're getting a matching panty/pad set by buying your first padded enhancing underwear here, at

More shopping tips from Karen:

1. Peruse our FAQ: We have provided a wealth of information to help shoppers on our website determine the best product for their fashion, self-esteem and/or comfort needs.

2. Follow the size charts and buying advice on each product page: Each product fits differently depending on the fabric, style and construction of the garment. Some people want their shapewear to be tight while others want it to be loose and not binding. So each individual product page not only has its own size chart, we also include sizing advice when necessary (like "size up" or "item is very sung fitting").

3. Read our Customer Service and product-specific "Baby Got Feedback" : I truly believe that we have the best customers on the web! Why? Because so many take the time to write us with helpful feedback about what they do and do not like about the products they purchased. This feedback is posted on our website and can help guide other shoppers, especially when it comes to fit and sizing.

4. Use our Comparison Charts: We provide easy to use charts that compare panty styles, pad styles and thickness of padding.

5. Watch the product videos: On select product pages, videos make product design, fabric and purpose very clear and easy to understand. The entire collection of videos can be viewed on Bubbles' YouTube Channel.

Dos and Donts a Bigger "Bubbles" Butt

It's best to tackle that droopy or flat butt from all angles...working out, weight lifting, eating (the fun way) and, of course, Bubbles Padded Underwear and Booty Lifters (the easy way)! Here are a few tips to keep your backside looking beautiful...

  • Buy lowrise pants. You will begin to notice that low rise pants (with a short distance between the button and top of the inseam) or between the back belt loops and the crotch of the pants, generally fit tighter on the butt. Most of the time, these are your designer brands. Abercrombie and Fitch typically cut all their pants and shorts this way. Highwaist pants can cause the dreaded "long-butt" affect!
  • Eating - although this only works if you are already skinny and have a low BMI (body mass index). Gaining a few pounds might actually enhance your overall shape by making your breasts and butt bigger.
  • Try some of Bubbles' bestselling padded underwear and butt-lifting undies:

BubbleBuns Padded Boyshort Panty for a super-cute lowrise padded underwear option

Retro Diamond Highwaist Padded Girdle Panty for a highrise control shaper

Foxy Fanny Silicone Padded mid-thigh panty for a realistic look and feel and a seamless look under clothing

For a discreet and subtle lift without padding, try the Bubbles Butt Lifting Bands (Great for the hotter summer months) or our famous DOUBLE-O booty lifters!

  • Don't get surgery! Buttock enhancing surgery is dangerous, not to mention costly. Exercise and using butt enhancers is safe, affordable and healthy!

  • Don't shop at unreliable online retailers. Bubbles has forged the padded underwear industry by designing and retailing our products in honest, transparent and ethical ways. But there are companies that take advantage of people when they are in a time of need. Watch for companies that don't allow  returns or exchanges, sell poor quality products and provide no communication after the sale. We have heard consumer nightmare stories from customers who tried other companies but who eventually found and converted to Bubbles!

    "I called to order another pair of Foxy Fanny [Silicone Padded Panty] briefs. I love these briefs,you cannot tell you are wearing them. They feel like part of your body. Plus they are great when you have to sit for a long time. The extra padding is heaven on a long flight.I haved bought padded briefs from other companies and was not happy with the product or the customer service. You have a wonderful product and wonderful customer service. I am waiting for this product to be made in black. Thank you Jenny for your help today.You were the best customer service provider ever, very helpful. I hope I get you next time I order.

    New Eucalan Scent ~ Florida Jasmine!

    Our favorite of all our Fashion Fixes has to be Eucalan'sall natural delicates detergent. I personally don't leave home without my Eucalan travel packets when packing for any type of trip. And my Mom swears by Eucalan products for washing all the beautiful scarf, hat and sweater creations she knits.

    And now Eucalan has added an amazing new scent: Jasmine Essential Oil! I'm in love! I highly recommend that any and all of our customers try it. You will become addicted to the luxurious, romantic, intoxicating scent of fresh Jasmine in your clothing.

    With such alluring scents, it's almost hard to believe that Eucalan is an all natural cleansing soap. Free of harsh chemicals, this detergent does not even require rinsing. Simply soak for 5-15 minutes then squeeze the soapy water out of the garment. Hang dry and you're done!

    One more exciting tid-bit....Bubbles now offers the 16.9 ounce big bottle size! A more economical solution for those of you, like me, who have become addicted to Eucalan for all our laundry needs.

    Available scents:

    Natural (Unscented)
