My alterations lady put in the biggest panel we could find in my dress and I still have some god awful back fat. Im horrified and i honestly do not want to walk down the aisle. I’m super annoyed and my wedding is in less than 3 weeks.
does anyone have any suggestions or tips.. Besides altering it because I will not cut a v down the back 😉
im straight up thinking duct tape. Has anyone tried this method? Or any like it? Ughh please help.

@puggleperson: We’re date twins! I have this issue, as well, but I don’t have much body fat. I think the strapless gown tends to push things up and out if that makes sense. I’m going to try to cut back in my diet and increase my cardio to loose a couple pounds. I tend to gain in my torso/chest area first and lose there first, as well.

@puggleperson: Another thing I’m doing is wearing like bouistier underneath my gown. This tends to hold things up and in.

I found that not wearing a bra in my dress actually lessened the back fat issue!

When you tighten the corset, make the top looser than the bottom. Here is another suggesting (first one on page 2)

This is my life right here. I am so happy with my body overall, but I have horrible back fat. There are exercises on pinterest and google you can look into. Just try to do some of those and eat cleanly for the next few weeks. Avoid fast food and sodas!
Myfitnesspal.com is a great tool to lose up to five pounds in just a few weeks.

If you’re really self-conscious about it, maybe try a shawl or something like that…

Can we see a pic of the dress?

Yes pls post pic! Maybe you are just being harsh on yourself and the back fat is non-existent:)

There’s nothing you can do about this, no matter what weight you are, once your dress is tight enough to make your skin squeeze above the edge of the dress. if you have a bra to remove, try that, if your alterations person can let it back out a tad, you can do that, but then you are going to be pulling your dress up more than you would otherwise. I opted for cups and no bra, and didn’t have her alter it as tight as she wanted to because of the back “fat”, I had to pull my dress up a lot but I was ok with that. It’s kind of a catch 22

How about a bolero jacket? It can be sheer or lacy.
