Finding the perfect bra can be a challenging quest for many women. Factors like comfort, support, and style are essential, but there's one more concern that often goes unaddressed: back fat. Back fat can be a common source of discomfort and self-consciousness for many women. Thankfully, the lingerie industry has evolved to cater to this issue, with the introduction of wide band bras designed specifically to minimise the appearance of back fat. In this article, we will explore the best bras for back fat, with a focus on wide band bras that offer both comfort and confidence.
What is back fat and why does it show?
Before delving into the world of bras that can help with back fat, it's essential to understand the nature of back fat.
Back fat is not exclusive to individuals with higher body fat percentages; it can affect women of all shapes and sizes. It often occurs due to factors such as genetics, posture, or, most often, an ill-fitting bra.
When you wear a bra that doesn't provide adequate support, the skin and tissue on your back can get pushed up, leading to the appearance of back fat.
Fighting Bra Back Fat - Tips and Solutions
- Wrong size? It's crucial to know your correct bra size. Many women wear the wrong size without realising it, which can exacerbate back fat issues. Visit a professional lingerie store for a fitting or read our guide on how to measure bra size to ensure you find the right size. A properly fitting bra (one with a firm, tight band that sits parallel to the floor and not up between the shoulder blades) would pull all that fat in and make back look slimmer.
- Large band size? Ensure you wear a correct band size. Wearing the correct band size creates a massive difference - if the band is too big, it rides up higher on the back and creates more 'back fat'.
- Streched out bra band? Bands can stretch out over the time, so keep an eye on that, the bra that used to fit you properly, may not support you well anymore, ride up and make back fat noticeable.
- Is bra band too small? If it is too tight - well, you will have the same issue. Sometimes it is difficult to find the right size, as large band may be too lose, and smaller band will be too tight. Opt for a wide band or longline bras, they provide additional support and smooth out bulges effectively.
- Consider your wardrobe: Think about the types of outfits you typically wear. Skin tight, thin clothing will often reveal more than it is desired.
- Quality matters: Don't compromise on quality. Well-constructed bras may be more expensive, but they will provide the support and comfort you need.
