How To Minimize Back Fat



VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: "Bra Fitting Secrets: How To Minimize Bra Back Fat" Length: 2:12

“Back fat.” It’s those bulges of flesh that are created around the edges of a bra. The softer your flesh, the more pronounced they become. The solution is to have more coverage and avoid “thin” straps and bands. Thin anything on your bra is not your friend if you’re trying to avoid bra lines and bulges.

Some make the mistake of going up a band size to try and reduce their back fat. When your bra band is too loose, it creeps up your back, pushing your back tissue upwards thus creating a more prominent back bulge. A loose band also compromises your fit. A properly snug bra band is always best. It grabs you at your narrowest part and will reduce the upward creeping, which contributes to back bulges.

Wearing a shaping camisole over your bra will greatly reduce bulges while giving you an overall smooth look under form-fitting clothing.

Taller bra wings spread out the pressure over a greater surface area to cut down on bulges under your arms and along your back.

A Leotard back (also called “U” back) creates a pretty back line while reducing bulges with its curved shape. Usually, the straps are attached closer together and at an angle. This design allows for wider sides to then be paired down in the center. Thus, less of a harness look along with the added benefit of less strap slippage. But, note that not all leotard backs are the same. A wide leotard back like this will do little to reduce bulging and keep your straps on your shoulders.

Racerback (also called t-back and y back) bras are also an option to reduce back fat. Their back panel covers a greater area and reduces bulging. They’re also a great choice under sleeveless blouses to hide bra straps.

If you want to reduce back bulges, take a minute to size up your bra’s back. Make sure it has the right feature to give you a smoother look.
