A Shopping Guide for First Time Bubbles Customers

Updated: August 26, 2019

If you're a first-time visitor to, you're probably 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 booty-flattering underwear industry. And today we continue to design and manufacture curve-creating and innovative shapewear solutions, offering customers the most 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 AND padded panties with built-in padding AND butt pads.

  1. Padded panties with removable pads are panties that have pockets integrated into the panty design ~  these pockets hold a pair of booty pads securely in place over the buttocks and/or hips (panties with pad pockets are also known as "pocket panties"). view all panties w/removable padding

  2. Padded panties with built-in pads have foam padding molded and shaped into the shape of buttocks and sewn into the fabric of the panty. The padding cannot be removed. 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 panty/pad 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 in our Padded Underwear Department.

Our 5 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 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 and realistic boosting effect.

  2. Butt Bras - Like a push-up bra for the butt, this 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 placement or for hard-to-accessorize fashions.

    • Our Sticky Buns & Sticky Hips should not to be confused with our Replacement Butt & 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).

More shopping tips from Karen:

  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 it to be soft or 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 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, 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.

  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/UPS packaging. There are no additional brand or logo markings on the packages. Please note that packages that outside the USA require documents for customs purposes, however we do our best to keep export documentation discreet.
