Padded Underwear and Butt Lifter Buying Guide
If you're a first-time visitor to, you may be here because you want to improve the appearance of your rear-end...and you've come to the right place!

In 2003 Bubbles pioneered the butt-flattering underwear industry. And today we continue to design and manufacture exclusive, high-quality, innovative shapewear solutions, offering our customers the most beautiful, customizable butt-boosting products available on the market today.

How Bubbles has revolutionized buying PADDED UNDERWEAR:
Bubbles Bodywear is the "Original Padded Undie Company"! We are best known for our modern-day padded underwear designs. We sell padded panties with removable pads, padded panties with built-in padding, as well as butt pads of all shapes, sizes and materials.

  1. Padded panties with removable pads are panties in which we integrate pockets into the panty design ~  these pockets hold a pair of our Bubbles Booty Pads securely in place over the buttocks and/or hips (we call our panties with pad pockets "Pocket Panties"). view all panties w/removable padding

  2. Padded panties with built-in pads have foam padding molded into the shape of buttocks and sewn into the fabric of the panty. The padding cannot be removed in these styles. view panties with built-in padding

  3. Butt pads: We also offer replacement butt padding for customers who already have our underwear. If this is your first time shopping for padded underwear or booty lift shapewear, start by shopping for a panty/pad set . Although, the pocket-panties and booty pads can be purchased separately, we recommend starting with a panty/pad set if this is your first padded undie purchase. Please only purchase our pocket-panties or butt pads separately if you are familiar with these products and know which panty style or pad type works best for you. view all butt pads

  4. Buying a panty/pad SET is always more economical than buying Pocket-Panties and Pads separately. Not only will you save money, you can be sure that the Booty and/or Hip Pads will fit properly in the Pocket-Panty, if you buy your first padded underwear in our Padded Underwear Department.

Our 4 most popular Departments...

  1. Padded Underwear - If you want an increase in the lift and size of your booty, we recommend choosing a product from our Padded Underwear Department. This department features underwear with padding (some styles with removable padding and some with built-in padding).  Both subtle and dramatic booty and/or hip padding is available.

    We designed our padded panties with removable pads so that the size and style of the booty pad matches its pocket-panty perfectly. So when buying a panty/pad set, you can rest assure that that the pad will fit perfect in the panty and will provide a natural-looking, realistic boosting effect.

  2. Butt Bras - Like a push-up bra for the butt, our Butt Bras collection gives a noticeable, natural boost to your booty without padding. It's ALL YOU, only perkier! Our Butt Bras Department includes our Double-O and Bum Lifting Bands Collections.

  3. Booty Lifters - And for an even a more subtle, natural lifting effect (and to avoid the pancake-butt look that happens with most shapewear), try one of the styles in our Booty Lifters Department.

  4. Sticky Buns / Sticky Hips - Our Sticky Collection features our exclusive adhesive, removable booty or hip pads that can be worn in your own underwear/shapewear. Great for customizing the placement of padding on the body, or for hard-to-accessorize fashions.

    • Our Sticky Buns and Sticky Hips should not to be confused with our Replacement Butt and Hips Pads Department where you can stock-up on our booty pad inserts (visit this section only if you already have a pair of Bubbles "pocket-panties" to hold the padding in place on the butt and/or hips).

Padded and Lifting Shapewear FAQ

  1. Peruse our FAQ: We have provided a wealth of information to help our customers 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 purpose, fabric, style and construction of the garment. Some people want their shapewear to be tight while others want a soft or non-binding fit. So each individual product page not only has its own size chart, we also include product-specific sizing advice when necessary (like "size up" or "item has a snug fit").

  3. Read our Customer Service and product-specific "Baby Got Feedback" : We LOVE our customers! Why? Because so many of you take the time to write us with helpful feedback about what you do and do not like about our products. This feedback is posted on our website and can help guide other shoppers, especially when it comes to fit and sizing. It also helps us continually innovate and improve our product line for you.

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

  5. Watch the product videos: On select product pages, we offer Demo videos, Social Media clips, and How-to videos make each product's design, fabric and purpose very clear and easy to understand. The entire collection of Bubbles' videos can be viewed on Bubbles' Vimeo Channel

  6. We protect your PRIVACY. Rest assure that your secret is safe with us. Bubbles Bodywear orders are shipped in discreet plain brown boxes, white mail bags or standard FedEx packaging. There are no additional brand or logo markings on the packages. Please note that packages that ship outside the USA do require documents for customs purposes, however we do our best to keep export documentation discreet.
