Do We Have This One?? Needs a Better Description

Some women are concerned with their cup sizes, so they try to increase them with padding or surgery. Usually used as a way to demonstrate A-Cup Angst.

For Cross Dressers, simply using appropriately sized balls will suffice.

See also Pillow Pregnancy.

Examples:

Anime and Manga
  • Played with in Kuragehime: when Wholesome Crossdresser Kuranosuke passes out in the lobby of their apartment building, Mayaya attempts to help by applying Vicks Vapo-Rub to "her" chest, and in the process discovers that Kuranosuke's breasts are fake. Mayaya and the other members of the Sisterhood present completely miss the obvious and instead accuse Kuranosuke of padding "her" bra to hide her A-Cup Angst.

Comic Books
  • In Le Petit Spirou, little Suzette is once seen fitting tangerines in her tank top in a ladie's bathroom to see how she'll look when she's all grown up.
  • Ninjette once used them to impersonate Empowered.

Film
  • There's a whole scene in Wild Wild West where Jim is telling Artie that his fake breasts don't feel right because they're too firm and don't have any give. He dumps out whatever Artie used for filling and uses warm water instead.
  • In the movie Dead Presidents, the protagonist sleeps with his girlfriend the night before he goes to the Vietnam War. As he takes off her shirt, he notices that she has her bra stuffed with tissue but tells her he doesn't care.
  • In Porky's II: The Next Day, part of the plot to take down the corrupt government man involved fake boobs full of cream corn and vegetable soup that the girl opened up and emptied as fake vomit.

Live-Action TV
  • In Just Shoot Me!, Nina is offered a free procedure from a plastic surgeon and is considering breast augmentation. So she goes around wearing D-cup inserts to get a feel of them.
  • On one episode of Will and Grace, Grace is worried that a newspaper photo of her makes her look more endowed than she actually is, so she goes to a gallery show wearing a water-filled bra. Unfortunately, it springs a leak.
  • In an episode of the Wonder Years, a legendarily endowed cheerleader is revealed to have stuffed her bra, leading to the characters being very disappointed.
  • An episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air concerns Ashley stuffing her bra at school to get more attention.

    Does it count if it's silicone?

    Tried to float this one before as "Padding Your Assets". Did not work. Anyway, Sakuya Izayoi ( Touhou Project ) is a memetic example.

    Pretty common in shows in all media. Stuffing Your Bra is the most common phrase I think. Usually used as a way to demonstrate A Cup Angst

    Gag Boobs covers fake boobs, I think...Disguised In Drag covers the male variant.

    @ troacctid Gag Boobs only covers cases where the sizes of the boobs are supposed to be humorous, regardless of whether or not they are fake. You should seriously consider applying additional quantities of critical thinking to tropes before claiming that they are already covered or that tropes are mathematically equivalent.

    Hmm, Is This Tropeable? It sounds a bit to me like People Sit On Chairs, but I'll defer if others think it's tropeable.

    On the other hand, the gag where a woman stuffs her bra and then it goes horribly embarassingly wrong (it falls out, it goes asymetrical, or something) is pretty tropeable.

    ^ We do not seem to have that one, and that is definitely tropable.

    Used in Toradora; Taiga isn't just very short, but a severely late bloomer. Ryuji helps her out by creating padded inserts for her swimsuit, which would otherwise make her lack way too obvious.

    Literature example: In Girl Fifteen Charming But Insane, Jess stuffs her bra with plastic bags filled with minestrone soup. Hilarity Ensues when they're popped.
