HOW TO TACKLE THAT BRA BULGE October 20, 2021 – Posted in: Lifestyle – Tags: , , ,

As a woman, for most of us, a common problem is having pockets of flesh bulging out from under and above the bra band, which is commonly known as bra bulge. Although having bra bulge does not hinder our daily activities, it is a sign of unhealthy habits, such as overeating and lack of exercise. Ignoring bra bulge means ignoring possible slowing down of lymphatic system, hindering proper drainage, which can lead to more serious health problems in the near future.

GET FITTED BY A PROFESSIONAL

Avoiding bra bulge starts with knowing your bra size. This is just one more reason why it’s important to get fitted by a professional every six months, who can adjust the straps and advise on the correct sizing and bra-type that will give you the best support.

As the bra band provides a vast majority of the bra’s support, you want to be sure that you’re wearing the correct size. If you’re wearing the correct size, you can rest assured you shouldn’t see any more back bulge.

EXERCISES TO REDUCE BRA BULGE

If you want to reduce bra bulge, here are 3 effective and simple exercises that can be performed without any equipment.

1. High Five

Works chest and arms.

This is an exercise that you can do almost anywhere and anytime, and it’s very simple. We will show you how.

Stand arm’s length from wall at chest height, left palm flat against wall, right arm behind back. Step both feet back and rise onto toes. Bend left arm (as shown on the left), then extend it to return to start. Repeat 10 to 30 times and then switch sides. To avoid wrist strain, spread hand and keep fingers pointing up, not to the side.

2. Push-Ups

Works chest, arms, legs and back.

Push-ups are wonderful for firming up the bra area. Trainers add push-ups to their routines because this exercise works the entire body.  An added benefit is that they can be done anywhere. They will also help to shape the back. To begin doing a push-up, get down on all fours (as shown below) and hold the back straight. Exhale as you push up. Repeat this for 10 to 30 times daily.

3. Mountain Climber

Works chest, arms, legs and back.

The mountain climber is an exercise designed to give you a full body workout. Start the exercise in a plank position (A), with your elbows locked and your hands underneath your shoulders. Raise one knee up and bend it towards your chest (B). While you are still in the air, jump and switch to the other leg, while keeping your body straight. Repeat this for 10 to 30 times daily.
