Where does FUPA come from?
The acronym “FUPA” has been widely used to describe this area of the body since at least 2010. This condition is often caused by being overweight or pregnant. Some people feel embarrassed, but this is a very common symptom that many people suffer from. In the September 2018 issue of Vogue, Beyonce said she was proud of her “FUPA” after giving birth to her son.
The causes that lead to the development of FUPA are generally obesity, weight loss, unhappy skin imbalances, mothers with babies, extreme laziness, drinking alcohol, etc. FUPA can be corrected by sit-ups, belts, excessive exercise, or skin conditions. Because the term is feminine, it is used almost exclusively in relation to the female sex.
