So the corset on the loosest type pulling still causes “back fat” or is it when its super tight?

Maybe its all in your head since your self concious and don’t like your body! I think I look a certain way and the world tells me otherwise.

You are going to look beautiful! Be confident and proud and people will see that and not any flaw or imperfection..

There is double sided tape (for your skin and clothing)  you can buy from any Bridal shop place, you can use it for back fat, arms, whatever you would like to tuck in and tape down. I recently bought some for my wedding for myself and bridemaids! Hope that helps!

I’m wondering if the corset was too tight.  That being said, you want it tight.  It is tough because sometimes you can avoid the “overflow”.  I would talk to the seamstress about it and see what she can do for you.  Maybe she can angle the back down a bit.  My dress is angled in the back and I do not get any roll over, which I was happy about because I do get some rollover in the back from my bras.

It may actually be just the way you are looking at it. This happened to me (I def have back fat and hate it!! No matter what you do, it’s impossible to lose!).
I was freaking out when I tried my dress on, but the seamstress explained to me that even with a second mirror, you are twisting and turning your body to see it from different angles, and it makes the problem look worse than it is.

Get someone to take a picture of you straight-on from the back and see if it’s still as noticable as you think it is looking at it from behind in the mirror 🙂

That said, I did still have the back ‘bum crack’ on my wedding day, but honestly the pictures are really forgiving and it is not as noticable as you think 🙂

I wear steel boned corsets all the time, and I assume this would be the same with a wedding dress corset.  Make sure the TOP of the dress is not too tight.  The waist is the part you want tight, not the top.  You should be okay if you do that.

I highly recommend getting a steel boned corset for underneath instead of a long line bra; plastic boning (in a long line bra) bends too easily, and can be less comfortable than steel.  The steel will keep your posture correct and your tummy in at all times.
