Ok bees, my wedding is in 40 days and I tried my dress on again today (after about 8 weeks since the last time). I’ve been working out a fair bit and noticing a bit more muscle.
When I first bought the dress I had back fat so the main reason I’ve been doing all this exercise is to reduce it. Happily this has worked, I still have a bit of back fat but it’s nothing crazy anymore.
Annyway, here’s a picture of my dress, I can’t take it from further away because I didn’t have anyone else in the house at the time… can you see how the fabric gathers a bit just under the waist? I can’t change this, I just wanted to know – is this obvious??? Do I look like ‘the girl who bought a dress a size too small’ ? (dress cost USD $280).

I think it looks lovely! And your body is great. But if you’re self conscious, maybe some suck-it-all-in underwear would allow you to forget about it? I expect the gathers (minor) look better with both your arms down too 🙂

@Stormchild: thanks for the tip. I have never owned underwear like that before – it might be worth investigating 🙂

I agree with @Stormchild. You look really fantastic! I wore Spanx (or Assets – their cheaper line. I have both and honestly cant’ remember which i wore) under my dress. I didn’t get the major suck-it-in ones, but ones that were comfy enough for all day wear. I know other people have found oens that are better (i can’t remember the brand off the top of my head), but I was happy with what I chose. I will warn, they are not sexy at all!
