The battle of the bulge does not necessarily take place around the waist. In fact, for many women, the situation is reversed. Back fat is often accentuated by ill-fitting bras and too-tight apparel, which is the last thing you want when you’re already unhappy with that area. Many new shaping devices, fortunately, include built-in compression that targets multiple areas of the back. We’ve compiled a list of useful styles to help you slim down your figure and alleviate your anxiety about this widespread figure problem.
Bras with a Longline
Choose a bra that covers back fat rather than one that accentuates it. Longline bras are great for smoothing out the center of the back and minimizing the appearance of rolls, which classic bras and their narrower bands can exacerbate.
Body Shapers with an Open Bust
You want to target your behind, but not at the expense of compressing your bust. As a result, open-bust body shapers are ideal. This style has an open front, so you can wear whatever lifting bra you like. Meanwhile, the back panel smooths and controls back fat.
Correctors of Posture
With one unique design, you may target back fat and drooping shoulders. Posture correctors, like open-bust shapers, merely compress the back while smoothing out any rolls around the bra itself. This style has the extra benefit of encouraging you to sit up straight.
Shapers of Arms
This is the shapewear for you to trim down your upper back while also addressing your arms. By smoothing and constricting this troublesome area, arm compression garments keep unattractive arm fat at bay. As a result of its positioning along the upper back, any back fat is flattened.
Cinchers for the Waist
Most people associate waist cinchers and fajas with stomach tightening, yet these popular shapers provide the same smoothing compression to your buttocks as they do to your abs. This is a terrific shaping garment to use if your major focus is on your lower back since it helps create an hourglass impression.
Vests for Shaping
Shaping vests, like waist cinchers, are designed to target the entire torso, but they’re made with straps for further lift and support. This garment is great for targeting the midsection and removing bulges from the top, middle, and lower back areas with a single solution.
