How A Properly Fitting Bra Can Solve the Armpit Fat Issue
The armpit fat, or underarm fat, is a common problem that women can’t seem to find a solution for. For many of these women, this issue is affecting their happiness as they can’t wear clothes that reveal more skin on that particular area. Some of them try working out, while others do only exercises for the arms, back and shoulders, and they get only very little help, or no help at all. It is a fact that targeting only the underarm area with these trainings is next to impossible.
Some say that liposuction can be a possible alternative to workouts, however, I would not suggest that you go to that to remedy your problem. It is a very costly procedure, and risky, too. The underarm area does not only have fat, but also breast tissue and lymph nodes; there will still be visible skin folds and scarring. There will be the risk to infection. Add to these the fat will return simply as you start gaining weight.
So, what is the best option to remove armpit fat? Well, most of my researches have proved that the correct style and size of bra can help in this area tremendously. Why, and how, you may ask. It’s because the fat under the arms are mostly breast tissue. So when you wear a bra with too small cups all over, this will make your skin and breast tissue to pucker under your arms. The bra styles that should be worn by women with armpit fat are bras with fuller cups, taller side wires and wider bands, as these features will help conceal the problem areas. Avoid wearing demi cup bras.
To find a properly fitting bra, you should first know your exact measurement. Approach a professional bra fitter in a bra specialty store or looking for self-measurement guidance. Even if you already have taken your measurement yourself before, it is highly recommended that you measure yourself more frequently and follow the specific size guidance for each brand, because bra sizes vary between brands, and your body changes overtime.
When you are fitting on a specific style and size of one brand, make sure that the bra really fits, and is not cutting into the area of your armpit. You should move your arms out, up, and around. If the bra style is a taller cup, you can expect some fabrics getting in the way, so you may decide on the matter of compromise. See here for a bra buying guidance.
Another important thing, you should know how to put your bra on properly. All your breast tissue must be contained inside the cup, including the very side of your breast and the tissue that is under the armpit. This step can make a huge difference in the feel and fit of the bra that you are trying on; and it takes just a few seconds. With the right bra style and size, you will look much more flattering, and your overall appearance, including the armpit area, will improve.
