While we think that all bodies are beautiful, we also know that everyone has hang ups they'd rather disguise. Enter our round up of the best bras for back fat. 

The main cause of so-called "back cleavage"? A bra that doesn't quite fit right. 

Your bra should fit snuggly enough to fully support your bust, but not so firmly that it's causing skin to spill out on either side. A good test is to see if you can fit two fingers behind the clasp of your bra when it's on the loosest hook. If you can't quite squeeze your fingers in, it's too tight. 

The high street has us covered when it comes to the best bras for back fat, boasting a wealth of smoothing options that are guaranteed to boost your confidence. For best results, look out for smooth, seam-free edges and wide back panels. 

You'll be wearing your bra every day of the week, so it's important you feel good in it - and that it's comfortable too.

Scroll on for our round-up of the best bras for back fat...
