Shapewear That Hides Back Fat

The battle of the bulge is not always fought at the waistline. In fact, for many women, it’s the other way around. Ill-fitting bras and too-tight clothing oftentimes accentuate back fat, which is the last thing you want when you’re dissatisfied with that region already. Luckily, many modern shaping devices offer built-in compression that directly targets multiple areas of the back. We’ve rounded up some helpful styles that will streamline your figure and ease your apprehension about this common figure concern.

  1. Longline Bras

Don’t choose a bra that highlights back fat – choose one that conceals it instead! Longline bras are ideal for smoothing the middle of the back and reducing the appearance of rolls, which are sometimes accentuated by traditional bras and their smaller bands.


  1. Open-Bust Body Shapers

Sure, you want to target your backside, but you don’t want to compress your bust in the process. That’s why open-bust body shapers are ideal solutions. This design is made with an open front, so you can wear the lifting bra of your choice. Meanwhile, the back panel keeps back fat smoothed and controlled.

Target back fat and slumped shoulders with one innovative design. Much like the open-bust shapers mentioned above, posture correctors only compress the back, smoothing out any rolls around the bra itself. As an added bonus, this style is designed to encourage you to sit up straight.


  1. Arm Shapers

If you’re looking for a shaper that slims your upper back while also addressing your arms, this is the shapewear for you. Arm compression garments keep unwanted arm flab in check by smoothing and tightening this troublesome spot. In turn, its placement along the upper back flattens any back fat.


  1. Waist Cinchers

Most people specifically think of waist cinchers and fajas as tummy fixers, but these popular shapers give your backside the same smoothing compression as they do your abs. If your primary focus is on your lower back, this is a great shaping garment to utilize, and it helps create an hourglass effect.


  1. Shaping Vests

Much like waist cinchers, shaping vests are designed to address the entire torso, but they’re constructed with straps for additional lift and support. This particular garment is ideal for targeting the midsection and eliminating bulges from the upper, middle and lower portions of the back with one convenient solution.
