Bra Fat

A common term used to describe the fat that accumulates on the back and around the sides of the bra area

Bra Fat

What is it?

'Bra fat' is a term used to describe the fat that accumulates on the back and around the sides of the bra area. This type of fat can be stubborn and difficult to reduce through diet and exercise alone, and it can be a source of frustration for those who are self-conscious about the appearance of their back and underarm area.

What Causes it?

The exact causes of bra fat are not fully understood, but it is believed to be influenced by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors. Some of the factors that can contribute to the accumulation of bra fat include hormonal imbalances, poor diet, lack of physical activity, ageing, and a sedentary lifestyle. Additionally, wearing an ill-fitting bra that does not provide proper support can exacerbate the problem by causing fat to bulge out and create the appearance of bra fat.


What Can You Do To Help Naturally?

To reduce bra fat naturally, regular exercise that includes both cardio and strength training is essential to burn calories and build muscle. Improving one's diet by incorporating whole and nutrient-dense foods while limiting processed and sugary foods can also help reduce overall body fat. Wearing a properly fitting bra can provide necessary support to prevent bra fat from bulging out. Maintaining good posture and practicing yoga or Pilates can also help to strengthen the back and core muscles, improving overall posture and reducing the appearance of bra fat.


Can losing weight reduce bra fat?

Yes, losing weight through a healthy diet and regular exercise can help to reduce overall body fat, including bra fat.

Can wearing a properly fitting bra help to reduce bra fat?

While wearing a properly fitting bra can help to prevent bra fat from bulging out, it may not necessarily reduce existing back fat.

Can targeted exercises, such as back exercises, reduce bra fat?

Targeted exercises can help tone and strengthen the muscles in the back, but they may not necessarily reduce the amount of bra fat present.

Are there any non-surgical treatments for reducing bra fat?

There are non-surgical treatments, such as Venus Legacy, that use targeted radiofrequency to eliminate fat cells.

Is liposuction a safe and effective treatment for bra fat?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that involves removing fat cells from specific areas of the body. While it can be effective in reducing bra fat, it does carry risks and should only be considered after consulting with a qualified medical professional.

Our Approach

Bra fat is something that can be very difficult to remove with diet and exercise alone. At RSA, following a detailed consultation, we use the Venus Legacy radiofrequency treatment to stimulate lipolysis (fat removal) and target these stubborn areas. We also combine treatments with the post-lipo programme on the Body Ballancer to ensure effective removal of excess fat cells. We always advise clients to combine body treatments with a prescribed nutrition programme and exercise plan.
