Lately I’m all about the back. Ever since I tried on a dress on that was a tiny bit snug, and turned around to see what my daughter was laughing at. There in the mirror was my reflection of what looked like some mighty fine breast implants, but they were on the wrong side of my body. I had back cleavage, and laughed along with my daughter who at that point, was practically rolling on the floor.
I regret to this day that I did not photograph my impressive back monstrosities and I am convinced that my front cleavage was quite jealous of the competition behind her.
Now it’s time to learn what to do: Remember that back fat is common, but can be contained and or minimized when following these tips:
1. Go up one size if you get back cleavage in a dress, bathing suit, or exercise top.
2. Shorten the straps and take in any spot that needs to be adjusted for a perfect fit.
3. If you are broad shouldered, have back fat or both, then only wear wide straps and avoid racer back styles at all costs. They are very good at creating quite disturbing looking back cleavage.
4. Get a professional bra fitting. The wrong size or ill fitting bra, can create oodles of puddles and accentuate or create back cleavage and back fat.
5. Always look at what is happening behind you and have a sense of humor about all the directions our bodies can go into when wearing the wrong clothes and lingerie. It is NEVER the fault of your shape, but rather the wrong clothes for your body.
