Hey Ladies!!! 🙂
I have been reading the boards for awhile now, but this is my first post! (YAY!) The big day is just a few months away (holy crap!) and I had my first fitting the other night. I should be excited, but I am just not feeling it. 🙁 I bought the dress in August and now I feel like it isn’t the right one. I also am having some issues with back fat overflowing. I have asked my friends, my dad, but I feel like they are all required to be nice.
Bee ( I couldn’t’ help it!) honest with me!!! Is it bad?

I think that the bodice might be a little tight but I don’t see an overflow of back fat.

yes, I agree, the bodice does look a tad tight. and I kinda see what you mean about the back fat issue. do you plan on doing anything about it? because if you dont (and there’s nothing wrong with that) than there is no use stressing over it!! 🙁

Welcome to WB!
I think everyone second guesses their dress choice at some point – esp when looking at so many blogs and inspiration pics. It’s hard not to find another dress that you love.
If you are having a hard time breathing or moving in your dress, just have the seamstress let out the top a little. No biggie. But it doesn’t look like you have back fat!

Looks great! The top might me a little tight, but I don’t see and back fat overflowing.

MissAsB – I agree! That is a whole level of frustration in itself! I paid extra for a custom measurement so it would fit properly, I am down two sizes from when I ordered, and the store owner insists that I did get it and that is just how the dress is made, and won’t do anything. GRRR!

It looks a little snug from the back- however, I do not see “back fat”.
I had the same thing happen to me when I was a bridesmaid in my brother’s wedding- my dress came in and was snug around the top/back. I think you could have your seamstress let it out a little on the top so that it’s more comfortable for you, but I still think your dress is lovely.

I don’t see an excess of back fat, but the bodice does look a bit tight up top. What does the front look like?

I think that if it wasn’t so tight near the top…you wouldnt be seeing the effect of skin going over the top….It’s like…literally indenting into your skin…I think once it’s a tab looser it will be great! I love your dress btw.

I don’t see back fat really…what LOOKS off is under the line of the dress, the ruching looks very tight and puckered…can it be let out at all?

I don’t see back fat! I think it looks great! 🙂 Don’t stress, its not worth it!

It looks a bit small at the top but I certainly don’t see any back fat to be concerned with. Is it comfortable? I think they need to let it out a bit so you’ll be comfortable and that should alleviate the cutting in appearance.

If you’re uncomfortable you should tell them (and be insistent). The dress is really pretty, but you don’t want to be uncomfortable all evening.

I dont see any back fat…it just looks a tad bit small. I would see if they could let it out a bit…but if they cant..I wouldnt sweat it at all
Your dress is gourgeous from the back…I wish we could see front.
