While we embrace all beautiful body shapes and sizes, we know that sometimes, us women have our insecurities that we’d prefer to disguise.

One of those areas is our back fat area. While it’s important for our bra to fit nice and snug, it can sometimes cause a spillage of excess skin to spill out on either side underneath our armpit areas and sometimes, cause a ‘back cleavage’ where our spine is.

First things first, if you’re concerned your bra may fit a little too tight you should go for a professional bra fitting to make sure you’re wearing the right size for you.

It’s so important to find a bra we feel comfortable and confident in, after all, they’re something we wear everyday!

If you’re on the hunt for a bra that smooths out your lumps and bumps, we’ve rounded up the most supportive, smoothing and comfortable bras on the market that are great for hiding back fat.
