Help I have back fat!

laura, on June 13, 2017 at 2:43 PM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 81

Ok so the title it a bit more dramatic than needed, BUT I am paranoid and don't feel great about this. The dress was taken in about 5" and I haven't gained weight since my first fitting. When I asked the women about this she said it needed to be tight to stay up. What do y'all think? How terrible does this really look? It fits very well in the front. Is this normal?!

ETA: grammar edit

    I don't see back fat, you look great! I think this is a situation where you are being you own worst critic. You look amazing in that dress.

    I hope you're not being serious.....

    With that being said, I see muscle. That's it.

    OMG what are you talking about??? I don't see a milli-ounce!

    Me, I had it--my photographer had a fix for it when she laced me up.

    But no, you have NONE.

    Pretty sure those are just your muscles relaxed...Keep in mind your arms are not going to be down at your sides all day.

    You look fantastic, I don't see fat at all. Sometimes we can be our own worst critics. Even looking for fat, I can't find any.

    Girl, I totally am in the same boat! I try to laugh it off that I have a back butt... you look so completely gorgeous so don't worry! (Plus your booty is amazing!)

    Thanks guys! It's the " back cleavage" I'm specifically referring to at the top of the zipper lol. (Wish I could insert a slapping face bitmoji) lol.

    Also with I had that in the front! Ha!

    ETA: I truly appreciate the sweet comments! I'm definitely my own worst critic!

    Lile pp have said, you look great. I'm assuming that you are wearing a veil that will hide whatever you think you have. You look great. Stop fretting over nothing.

    That line isn't back fat. I have the same thing (with my dress that IS too small and I need to lose an inch, unlike you!). The solution is to have someone run their hands along the dress back to move your skin to the sides so it doesn't bunch. Does that make sense?

    You look phenomenal!

    No back fat, just the dress squishing the skin. My bridal boutique told me how they use fashion tape to spread the skin apart under the dress sometimes. Try it!

    I had "back cleavage" in my Senior prom dress. It happens to most, I believe, to varying degrees.

    The seamstress I had told me to have someone stick their hands between my back and my dress, and just smooth everything out.

    No worries Smiley smile

    PS, I have only seen the back, but your dress is pretty and suits you well! Love it!
