Arm pit fat?!?

I am thin on top with small boobs as well and I have the “armpit fat” issue too (plus the double chin issue if I look down and tuck my chin down even though I am thin and my internal corset was so tight I had back fat, even though without it I don’t have back fat, lol). A lot of women have this issue, or other parts they are concerned about, so you are not alone! 🙂 The other thing is, in the pic, your arms are hanging down in such a way where the armpit area is accentuated. I’d try practicing arm poses, hand on hip, etc. where if your arm is upright, you prob won’t see that as much (for your photographs). 

When I first saw the pic you posted, if I didn’t know you were concerned about the armpit region, I probably would not have zoomed into that section of the pic first.

For the smaller boob issue, if your dress doesn’t have cups, ask if they can sew them in.

You look beautiful. I had to specifically look for that armpit fat you are talking about.. You have a gorgeous figure in this dress and that’s what everyone sees, not the pit fat. smile

Your dress is dreamy. I don’t think you look flat chested. I think the v-neck draw the attention  to the chest yet the cut isn’t too too low to reveal all the goodies! I had to zoom into see what you call armpit fat. Honestly, you’re going to find it on every wedding picture because you’re going to focus on that and you are always going to scrutinise your own appearance more than anyone else will. BUT nodody, not even your your partner, will notice. Everyone will tell you that you’re a beautiful bride and they’ll be telling you the truth. And your partner will look at you in that dress and believe all their Christmas and birthdays have come at once.

And the last thing you will be worried about on your wedding day is armpit fat. This is from a woman who was a very plus sized bride and very insecure about how she’d look. You’ll have have your hair and makeup done, your partner will not be able to take their eyes off you and you will feel like the most beautiful person in the world. You will be the most beautiful person in the world. Get that dress and knock ‘em dead!

I think it’s just the way the dress is fitting you. It looks a little tight and a little low. I think, as PPs have mentioned, you just need to tuck your boobs in a bit.

It does look a bit tight, I reckon it will be fine once fitted.

Armpit “fat” isn’t fat, and it can almost always disappear with better tailoring or a better fitting undergarment.

Cher got hers liposuctioned, back before you born. Probably also back before your mama was born. But i remember reading about it!

I think you look amazing in that dress! You could tape under your breasts pulling them together. It would make them appear larger in pull your boobs (what you call armpit fat haha) in!

Usually armpit fat is actually breast tissue that has migrated due to long term use of improperly fitted bras. You can actually retrain it back to your breasts by your wedding day. You need to be properly fitted for a bra, then make sure you’re bending over to scoop all the tissue under your arms into the cup. Done frequently and consistently it should make your breasts larger slightly and to have less tissue under arms. 

But, literally nobody will notice it as is without you talking about it.

worriedbeehere11 :  everyone gets it. Honestly. I’m pretty sure no none would ever notice it. Except you ,because that’s how felt doubt works. You look beautiful, no flat chested and there is nothing fat about your armpits.
