I’m facing what many curvy girls have and will in their gorgeous strapless gowns, back fat.
Now, I love myself and my body, but I am not keen on seeing tons of skin pouring over my dress. I have larger boobs, so while the dress fits like a dream through the waist, the chest area is another story. I work out at least three times a week, cardio and weights and am trying my darndest to stay on the right track with a diet. That being said, I officially have 99 days until my wedding day and I know that I am going to have to make other arrangements.
Did you do anything special with your dress and seamstress to help hide or alleviate some of the backfat? I don’t want a corset as I love the back of my dress, and if I have the dress taken out in the back, I still want the girls to be up and at attention..so any ideas?

I wish I had some advice! I had back fat in my dress unfortunately. It wasn’t a huge deal, and in most pictures it wasnt evident, but I had the same problem in that it fit perfectly in the waist and if I wanted the girls to stay in place it needed to be laced up tight up top (mine as a corset)

i somehow got away with having little to no back fat. my dress was tight at the waist and up under my boobs but it was just snug enough on the very top that i couldnt see down my dress but it wasnt so tight it as digging into my skin. thats the kinda poopy thing if you have a corset back. you need the top part looser but the part around your waist you wanna pull as tight as you can. so have ur seamstress leave the very top part of your dress a little looser. it can be tight everywhere else but that very top like 2 inches should be looser so it doesnt dig in.

Here is an oldie but goodie thread about this:
Fix Armpit Fat and Back Fat with Dress Alterations, not Exercise
Basically, it all depends on how your dress is altered. Dresses that cut straight across could make a size 0 have “back fat”.
