The Best Swimsuits For Back Fat

First things first: we think all bodies are beautiful. We're always happy to help you dress around your perceived challenges, whatever they are. The suits below were all part of our edit to help smooth over a particularly tricky body phenomenon: back fat. Beautiful broad shoulders and strong backs can have extra padding, and that's cool. These suits will all feel sleek and smooth on the body and keep overhang to a minimum. Talk about bringing sexy back.

A few key things to remember when shopping for suits: flat, wide straps are your friend, as they lay smoothly and won't cause as much skin to bulge over them as a teeny tube strap. Eliminating as much excess fabric is also wise — the less going on, the less there is to cause overhang. One-shoulder styles, full-coverage halters and low-cut armholes all constrict the soft skin around the upper back and armpits less, giving the appearance of a smoother, more taut surface. When in doubt, try a bandeau or a full-coverage rash guard — no straps means extra skin hanging out!

Here are some stellar suits that are perfect for camouflaging back fat.
