Exploring the Factors That Cause Bra Fat and Bulges

Bras lift and support the breasts, forming a smooth, attractive silhouette under clothing. While bras can do great things to the front of your body, they're often why the back of your body appears unaesthetic.

If you're like most women, it's likely to happen to you. Skin and fat push out from underneath the band and bra straps, causing the uneven surface to form what's known as a "bra bulge."

Bra bulges are unwanted and can even make you self-conscious about your appearance. Nonetheless, there's not much reason to worry, given that several methods exist to get rid of a bra bulge.

What Causes A Bra Bulge?

What causes back bra fat, you may ask? A few things can cause a bra bulge. These factors are easy to fix, while others may require more time to correct.

You're likely aware of the importance of wearing a bra that fits. Armpit fat caused by bras is much more common than one might think. Too tight a bra size can cause a bulge by pushing the skin and fat outward, creating lumps and bumps.

There are even cases where a well-fitting bra can lead to bulging skin and fat. Fatty deposits near the breasts or upper back are likely to push out when a bra is wrapped around them.

Other back bra fat causes can be upper body fat and hormonal causes like excess breast tissue.

Can Diet And Exercise Help?

If you aren't aware, you cannot tone a particular area or target where fat burning occurs. Therefore, any claim about targeting fat in a specific body area is a sham.

That does not mean diet and exercise won't help eliminate that bra bulge. Just know that you cannot do a specific activity to reduce the bulge, as workouts will cause the muscle to grow.

Meanwhile, it's a caloric deficit that limits fat growth, but this cannot be directed in any specific area. With dedication, you will begin to shed excess fat, and then gradually, your bra bulge may decrease.

However, your genetics and hormones dictate the order in which you begin to lose fat. If your bra bulge area is genetically predisposed to holding excess fat, you may need to go through significant weight loss before seeing results. Otherwise, a minimally invasive armpit fat removal procedure could be your best bet for quick results and a short downtime.

Exercises for Reducing Bra Fat:

One of the main factors contributing to bra fat beyond what one eats is weak upper back muscles. This is because when the upper back muscles are not adequately toned, it can contribute to poor posture and reduced support for the surrounding tissues, resulting in bra fat. Exercises for bra fat that you can do are the following:

  1. Push-Ups: Push-ups are versatile exercises that engage the chest, shoulders, and back muscles.

  2. Bent Over Rows: Bent over rows with dumbells help tone the back muscles and improve posture. Aim to return to the starting position in a controlled manner for full effects.

  3. Lat Pulldowns: This machine exercise specifically targets the latissimus dorsi muscles (lats), reducing back fat.

  4. Plank Variations: Planks engage the entire core, including the back, providing a full-body workout.

  5. Reverse Flys: Utilizing dumbbells, reverse flies isolate and strengthen the upper back.

What Procedures Can Reduce Bra Bulge?

If exercise and diet are not reducing your bulges, surgical procedures or minimally invasive treatments can help you obtain the results you're interested in.

Suppose you have a significant amount of fat on your back that you want to eliminate. In that case, AirSculpt®'s patented fat removal technology is an innovative procedure that you should consider.
