Bra fat is the bulge that forms when the elastic of your bra squeezes your torso. The bulge often shows through clothes and can affect one’s confidence. In the majority of cases, it is simply caused by a poorly fitted bra or incorrect bra size.
Weight gain and loss of skin elasticity can also cause this bulge to form and it can be made to appear more prominent by an ill-fitted bra. Weak back muscles can contribute to the formation of this bulge especially in the presence of excess fat and loose skin.
Bra fat can, however, also be due to excess back fat that has accumulated due to a drop in one’s oestrogen level. This tends to happen as one approaches menopause. The drop can cause a shift in the distribution of fat from the lower body to the upper body.
Selecting the right outfit can go a long way in hiding bra fat bulges. On the other hand, selecting the right treatment can go a longer way to making bra fat a thing of the past.
