"Lightly padded" definitely describes this bra accurately. There is enough there so as to avoid nipple show-through on T-shirts, but it does not in any way feel or look like a padded bra. And there is no gapping. It feels so good to finally have a bra that fits!!
With the Essential T-shirt Bra, you'll get lightly padded coverage with underwire that is perfect for all day wear and perfect under T-shirts. Super soft microfiber fabric. Two row, three column back closure and adjustable straps. 30% Polyester/25% Nylon/20% Cotton/5% Elastane
