Default Arm pit fat

I have the dreaded arm pit fat. I've had it since I can remember and I have ALWAYS hated it. I am super self conscious of tank tops or anything that shows off this unsightly issue.

Judging by the legions of youtube videos dedicated to arm pit fat, I'm not alone. I read recently that arm pit fat is the #1 photoshopped area on the female body.

So, does anyone have any tips for this? I know you can have surgical removal but there is so much danger in this area for developing lymphedema that it doesn't seem worth that risk for a cosmetic issue no matter how much I hate it and am embarrassed by it. Has anyone successfully gotten rid of their pit fat via non-surgical methods? I truly hate this issue.

I'm not sure what you mean by arm pit fat, but lifting weights to build the muscles in your arms and shoulders will give them a nice shape and could change the appearance of the fat, since the muscle under it will change shape.

You might also be wearing the wrong size bra, which can cause breast tissue to spill over the side of the bra.

I'm not really sure what that means either, but I agree with weight training. You probably won't get rid of the fat but building muscle should make it appear better. But since I'm not quite sure what you mean, I have no idea what kind of exercises one would do for that.

Good grief, I though the term arm pit fat was pretty self explanatory. Fat in the arm pit! Haha

And it has NOTHING to do with bras. Guaranteed.
