Ever find yourself trying on nice, form fitting clothing but then notice bulges on your upper back from fat layers that hang over your bra strap? You’re not alone. Many women experience this “bra bulge.” This annoying problem can before more obvious as you get into your 40s and hit menopause, because your estrogen drops. This drop in estrogen can lead to a shift in where your body stores fat. Often times, women find that fat accumulates more in their chest and waist areas as they age.
However, the good news is that there are ways to tackle this bra bulge problem! Let’s take a look at some of them.
Fighting the Bra Bulge
When was the last time you were properly fitted for your bra? As you get older, your body and bust size change. It is important to wear a proper fitting bra. This easy fix may be all you need to eliminate any fat bulges from your bra.
Diet and Exercise
While diet and exercise cannot target one specific area for reducing fat, an overall healthy lifestyle of physical activity and eating well can help you lose weight and tone your overall body. Consider toning your back muscles with swimming or lifting weights.
Liposculpting is a procedure that can remove and reshape localized fat accumulations. It is an effective option if you are already near an ideal body weight but just can’t seem to get rid of some stubborn fat areas (such as fat deposits around the bra area).
Talk with your doctor to determine what options are best for you. Depending on your current health and lifestyle, certain diets, exercises, and cosmetic procedures may or may not be an ideal solution for you.
