I have two issues on my desk - how to alter a corset to avoid a "fleshy bulg" at the lower edge due to pressing softer tissue downwards and how to make a lift. The second problem is hereby solved and am very happy for the info given in this article. Just recently I got some patterns from a company called Bra-Makers Supply and when checking their website there were many foam cups to pick from. Guess there are many more companies like this one.

This is exactly what I needed!! I've been experimenting with a half finished corset that was rushed for an event, but never finished because the bust just looked truly horrible. I just couldn't get the push-up effect quite right no matter what I seemed to do. I did add bust pads, but now I know where I was going wrong with them too!
Now I look forward to finishing off this hopefully no longer frustrating corset.
I also add that, in my opinion, a straight bustline is better than, say, a sweetheart or a plunge for a very little bust: I don't know if it's just me, but I find that a curvy line can distract and make it harder to notice those two little mounds over there :-)
I'm trying to make a push up corset for my sister (she's THIN! her measures are: 76-70-76) and this article is just what I needed!
