I am a little bummed. I think I actually gained 5 lbs from when I ordered my dress. They are going to take in out on the top sides. Hopefully that will get rid of the armpit/back fat.
I liked it on, I was happy, but now looking at the photo there is a shadow under my stomach. I need to focus and lose some weight. Will spanx work?

To be honest I think it looks fab on you! Thank goodness it’s only five pounds; with some careful eating and exercise you should look even better than you do now!

IMO, that “shadow” is just bad lighting… that dress looks gorgeous, and I would be cautious not to lose too much weight cause those fitted dresses look good hugging curves!

you have arm pit back fat only because of the way you are standing, if you had put your arms forward like you were carrying a bouquet ( like you will be most of the day) you wouldn’t notice this. You are being super critical of yourself, I think it looks amazing-most bees would die to have your figure

I think you look beautiful, and the dress is very flattering 🙂 you have plenty of time! If you really feel as if you need to lose five pounds you have enough time, but I think you look great as is!

I dont think it is major enough to worry about. However, I think losing 3-5 lbs which could even be water weight will help. Try it on with spanx. Beautiful dress!

You look so good! You are crazy to think you don’t, but we are our own biggest critics. When I look at that picture I see a gorgeous dress and a great figure! 🙂

@Milk and Honey: looks Beautiful!! You want to wear spanx no matter what Bc it will hold you snug in all the right places, spanx helps you keep a better posture as well!!

You look amazing – I don’t think it’s half as bad as you are seeing it as.

You look gorgeous! Your dress is my dream dress, but it was over budget. I think it looks awesome for a first fitting!

Thanks everyone. I know I am being nit-picky, but we all know that there is so much pressure to look good. I am a little disappointed that I have been slacking. I am going to get back on track. I started the Insanity dvd’s 2 weeks ago and I am going to quit being such a slug and log some more miles running. I may even start counting calories, which I hate.
@MrsTVLover: Thanks! I had never heard of Marisa dresses, until I tried one on.
