Hey bees! Can’t believe that in a week I’ll be wearing my dream dress! Brought it home last week and love everything about it! I just hate my back fat:-( I worked out a lot and my back looks really better than a half year ago, but the back fat won’t disapear. I’m wearing a lace jacket anyway. There was no way to let out some inches because it wouldn’t fit at my boops;-) Funny is that it really does feel good, not to tight at all! So what do you think? Really terrible or acceptable?
Here is a pic at my first fitting with my lace jacket

The back of your gown is so pretty! I want to see it all now!

You can’t notice it at all with the bolero. Personally, I’d want the seamstress to let out the top a bit so you don’t have th back cleavage and can take the bolero off if you want. If she told you she can’t let it out or it won’t fit your boobs, she doesn’t know what she’s doing.

I don’t think you have anything to worry about.The jacket is really beautiful and I would never notice! Best of luck with your wedding!

I think it looks absolutely fine on you with the bolero. If you really do want to be comfortable and have the option to remove the bolero- and there is no more fabric left in the dress to be let out, you can have your seamstress cut away some of the fabric- allowing the dress to scoop a bit lower/eliminating the back fat issue. Do a search on the board, I know a girl here did that and it worked out PERFECTLY.

It needs to be let out, honestly I can see it even in the jacket. Not trying to be an ass, but I know you want honesty. She should be able to let it out in the back without affecting the chest area. Considering your back is going to be facing your guests for a good bit it is worth getting fixed.

I heard that getting a seamstress to lower the back side will help with back-fat. You know, making it come to a V lower on the back where women are naturally thinner. I’m waiting on my gown to see how it looks, and back-fat is a concern for me too (and like you, it’s comfortable for me, but makes me feel self-conscious).
If you’re not interested in that, the jacket does hide a lot, and makes any back-fat almost completely unnoticeable.
Either way, even if you left the jacket off and didn’t change a thing, I bet you most guests would just remember how beautiful you are/will be.

@mixtapehearts: I agree. I think the bolero is beautiful though. I love it. I know that as a photographer I see this A LOT. It’s one of the reasons I’m not a fan of strapless dresses. Trust me, it’s not just you. Even the tiniest little brides that I work with have it when wearing a strapless dress. It’s less about our “fat” and more about how the dresses have to be tight enough to stay up.
