We all have those body insecurities, but it’s time to do something about it. First of all, it’s super important to feel good about your body, no matter the shape or size. Don’t put pressure on yourself to look a certain way or feel guilty if you can’t get rid of that stubborn back fat. But there are simple solutions which will make you feel more confident. Here are our top tips on how to reduce back fat and the best bras to banish the rolls!
1. It’s all about the coverage
If you want to hide your back fat, our top tip is to go for full coverage bras. You can get amazing bras these days which have full cups and thicker bands but still look great! Thin straps and bands will tend to dig into your body and easily bend and roll. This is what sometimes creates those unwanted lines and bulges which are visible under clothes. Opt for bras with thicker bands and shoulder straps! These have a larger surface area and are more supportive so you can keep that back fat contained and under control. A thick band will keep your curves in place and smooth out any bumps.
2. Get the right fit
Getting the perfect fit is an easy way to reduce the appearance of back fat. This seems so simple but so many women are wearing the wrong the bra size every day! Our advice is to go and get a professional bra fitting or you can measure your bra size at home with our helpful guide. If your band is too tight this could be why you are getting that unwanted bulge. The band of the bra is what does the heavy lifting and takes most of the weight so it’s important to get the fit spot on.
3. Try shapewear
If you follow the two simple steps above you should be well on your way to banishing the back fat. But if you still need a little more help then shapewear is the best thing! Shapewear is designed specifically to smooth, contour and contains your body to keep everything where you want it to be. Many think shapewear is only for the over 70’s or for your wedding day but that is just not the case! The stigma around shapewear is changing and people of all ages are starting to realise what a great thing it can be. So, the best brands are now putting real thought into making their shapewear look attractive. You really don’t have to feel frumpy and old in shapewear, as now there are so many amazing options.
