Buh Bye Back Fat!
Sometimes I wonder if I’ve been living under a rock. There are all these innovative products that I discover and think where have you been? Take for example the Vanishing Back Bra by Soma Intimates. It is engineered to eliminate those lumps and bumps, otherwise known as back fat, that you might see with a regular bra. Keep scrolling to see what the bra does…
It’s harder to see from the back view, but you can CLEARLY see from the side view (above) that there is skin overhang with the regular bra (left), and nothing with the Soma bra (right). The Soma Intimates strap design is different. The regular bra practically scoops up my skin and puts it on display, while the Soma bra smooths it all out. The Vanishing Back bra is also really comfortable and soft. It runs true to size. It’s worth noting that these bras are the same size and I’m posing in the same way.

In addition to the type of bra you buy, you should also consider the colors. I’ve talked about the importance of wardrobe basics quite a bit. Those basics should include undergarments. You should have one smooth, comfortable nude bra like the two pretty options above. If you haven’t gotten your wardrobe basics checklist, make sure you subscribe to the newsletter here.
Visible Panty Lines
Now, let’s address panties, specifically visible panty lines. It’s one of those things that happens to the best of us. You are rushing out the door, and you forget to check your backside. Inevitably, there will be a moment when your panties show through your pants, dress, or skirt. And, even if you DO check, you might not have time to change. Hey, that’s what tunics are for, right?
The traditional solution to this problem has always been thong underwear. Thongs were invented by some sadistic person who is laughing all the way to the bank. Clearly, I’m not a fan and I’m sure a LOT of you feel the same way. Cause who wants something riding up their butt crack? (BTW, I looked up who invented the thong, and it is a former NYC mayor (male) who designed them for nude dancers! How hilarious is that? Makes perfect sense.)
I wasn’t sure it was possible to have full coverage panties that do not show…but it IS! The Vanishing Edge Panties by Soma Intimates are genius! Not only are these panties invisible under your clothes, they also stay put. There is a tiny bit of silicone on the edges that hold the undies in place! Check out the before and after photo above. On the left, I am wearing regular bikini underwear, and on the right the Soma Vanishing Edge pair. Please excuse the tight yoga pants, but I thought these would be the best way to test the panties vanishing power!
