The Right Bra to Prevent Back Fat from Showing Through Clothing
When the weather is fine, women can set aside their long sleeves and thick clothing and go around town in thin, clingy clothing and sundresses. But it also shows flabby arms and tummies of women who are lack of exercise, and sometimes back fat (also called back bulges, bra fat, or bra bulges).
Bra back fat is the fat on the back that you see rolled under, over or through the bra band that is made more prominent when you wear an ill fitting bra. To see an example of back fat, take a look at Gemma Collins, a reality TV star, when she stepped out one Sunday to work at her own boutique store at Mailonline.com. Sorry Gemma, we love your confidence and think you are a very beautiful lady. But in these pictures, the roll of skin (bra back fat) made your back lumpy-looking. Your bra underneath the clingy purple frock was obviously an ill fitting one.
Some studies have confirmed that bra back fat is at present most women’s dilemma. Luckily, there are ways to get rid of these unwanted fats at the back, or at least prevent them from showing prominently. One option is losing weight. I mean you lose weight overall, as it is not possible to lose weight in just one area of your body. Start by watching what you eat: reduce calories and fat intake. Consume more fruits and vegetable. Do cardio exercises and engage in strength training.
There is another quicker fix, which is checking the bra fitting. An ill fitting bra is one of the major factors why bra fats appear. To know that the bra is of the right fit, its back band should not squeeze, but tight enough to fit. When there are indentations caused by your bra, it is better to re-measure yourself so you know your band size. The right band size fits from front to back and straight across. By getting fitted again, you will know whether you need a new size bra or simply adjust the bra shoulder straps.
There are bra styles that you can choose to avoid your back bulge. For example, a side and back support bra, like Orlinas bra, that has higher back and side panels that smoothen out your back flesh so you are given a sleek silhouette. This style is comfortable and supportive as well. You can choose a bra with wider straps that will not pull, but offer more support instead. For the cups, choose the wide scooping cups and thick side panels. These features will help compress the usual back fat.
