This sexy lingerie gained fame after being launched by the famous brand Wonderbra, in the mid 1990s. In the company's “Hello Boys” advertisement, supermodel Eva Herzigova displayed her perfect breasts in a black, lacy push-up. This made the brasserie highly popular, persuading many brands to launch their own versions later. With this, women attained a weapon to escalate their physical beauty to a great extent. No wonder, push - up bras have been listed amongst the top fashion favorites of the 21st century women.
As much as the push up bra has come to be associated with female sexuality. It has also triggered off a debate pertaining to the negative and restrictive side of gender politics. These bras came to be symbolized with female submission in the 1970’s, as they practically bind the chest to achieve a more feminine appearance. This debate led to the famous bra burning exercise during that time. However, counter-arguments have been presented by defenders that pushup bras celebrate a woman’s curves. They have been associated with sexuality in its most blatant form and over emphasis on enhancing the female cleavage, which are also the reasons why they captured the fancy of so many.
