Hello BBW’s! I love my dress and I love that it is strapless and I love my super tight girdle and strapless underneith. What I DO NOT love is the HUGE back fat roll I get when I put on my girdle.
I like being a BBW and my DH loves all he has to hold on to, but I don’t want to have this aweful back fat sticking out all over on my wedding day. Any advice? Anyone of you big girls have a solution.
BTW, I must wear my undergarments!

This sounds silly, but Google it! There is a way to smooth things out and get it looking great! Its all a matter of tucking and smoothing hun! 😀

Can you lower the back a bit? There is a thread on here about a bee who did just that and it eliminated the back fat issue!
EDIT: AH! Here it is!

This is a big reason why I didn’t get a strapless. I’ve seen so many photos of brides (skinny and plus size) with a noticable bump over the dress, and well if I see it, Im sure the guests will have too, and I personally don’t want that on the day.
Not being rude about anyone in particular, so hopefully no one takes it that way. I’m sure there will be cases where there isnt “over flow” but I knew that with my back fat, there would be a case of a lahar! LOL. I’ve got a dress that will be covering my shoudlers and where my worst of my back fat is, plus a hold me tight suck me in stop the fat thing lol

Hi there…I have a little tip. When I was a bridesmaid wearing a strapless dress I bought a corset/bustier to wear as I need way more support than a strapless bra….BUT that gives the lovely back fat roll. The lady at the lingerie store gave me this tip and it worked. Instead of doing the corset all the way up (the hook and eyes) she said to just do it half the way. Then…whatever is left undone you fold it in (between you and the corset) to form a “v” shape. This way you get the support but the back fat isn’t smushed up. For me it worked like a charm.
