Sometimes despite firm vows to stop, you just can't deny yourself one more McDonalds and before you know it, you are struggling with excess fat all over your body. The rolls of fat around your midsection may result in features such as muffin top, love handles and belly pooch.
Muffin top describes the body pudge that overhangs around the waistline especially when a person wears low waist pants. It mirrors the top or head of a muffin that overhangs around the paper wrapping and hence its name was derived from this phenomenon. Hormonal changes, physical inactivity and improper diet are the leading causes of the development of muffin top because it leads to fat storage around the waistline.
While one may not have to be visibly fat to develop muffin top, love handles is a tire of excess fat around a fat person’s waistline. While the feature is undesirable, the term is less offensive and actually attractive because it symbolizes the fact that one can grab his or her loved one at the love handles and bring them closer. Lastly, the tummy pooch is a protruding stomach also associated with weight gain.

The best shapewear for muffin top, love handles or tummy pooch lets you squeeze the pudge thus realizing a curvier shape in the midsection.
