@brid32bee:  I’m having the same issue. I think I might try some wide kinesio tape to keep the skin pulled down, it’s the kind of tape physical therapists use for sports injuries, it’s water proof and will stay put, But just to be on the safe side I’ll probably add a bolero since you can’t effectively tape flapping arm flab up, LOL.

I tried on a couple of strapless dresses and realized that I loved them from the front and hated how the back looked.   I don’t want to have to do more pricey alterations than will be needed as it is, so I just kept my search to dresses with straps.  There are less of them than strapless, but they do a good job hiding back fat.

ALERT!!!! Tip of the day! When I went for my fitting, she said when you put on your bra, put it up to your chest then have someone hook the first few hooks after pulling it down to a V in the back, then DONT shift or pull it up, just finish the hooking up the bra.  I was amazed at the lack of back fat going on!  Try it!

@brid32bee:  I would just stay away from strapless as strapless dresses make anyone look likey they have back fat. I’m not a big girl, but I do have a big bust so strapless dresses look awful on me. I’m opting for a dress with straps so I can wear a supportive bra.

I’m battling back fat as well! I’m getting married in 17 days and I have decided to do at home body wraps a few days before the wedding to see if that helps at all.

I’m going to repeat what I heard the nice man on “Something Borrowed, Something New” on TLC say on a recent episode. “You know who has back fat in a strapless dress? Everyone!!” I think it’s just bound to happen, even if you’re a twig, which I know I’m not. ]

Also, once you have the dress on, have your Maid/Matron of Honor or Mom or someone use her two thumbs to glide and tuck the overhang into the dress.

Works like a charm.

luckally i did not end up with too much back fat for my dress and it is equal to like a bridal 32. i think the fact that the back seems higher than some dresses helped. my skin looks really red in the pics but that is just the lighting. i plan on a tan prob to help with my eczema scars…
