Corsets are a tricky thing, if they don’t have the appropriate amount of boning in it then there’s all sorts of problems. Does the corset have boning at all? If it does then it shouldn’t be a problem if it’s got the appropriate amount. If not then there’s definately going to be issues. Try smoothing the “backfat” down with your hand sometimes thats all you need, think of it like proping the girls up in your bra? Do the same but pushing everything down in the back. If that doesn’t work get a longline bra and more than likely your dress doesn’t have enough boning in it. Good Luck.

I didn’t wear one. I got all crazy worried about back fat and lifted a TON of weights for my back with 3 weeks to go, haha. At least I felt better about it…..=]

I’m not wearing one, but I had the seamstress add padded cups to the front to help hold the girls up and in place.

…although I do not have a corset dress, I have a tight dress with many bones in it. Honestly I can not fit anything under there and my mom says I am very boob-a-licious without a bra on.

Why not take photos of yourself in your dress with undergarments and without and see which way you like it best?

I tried the maggie’s on and they definitely had awesome boning and it shouldn’t be a problem if you loosen it a bit, holding everything in place. (I’m a size 10/12 34Dirty Delete and it seemed fine). But definitely try the pushing it down thing before you get too upset, I’ve heard from other girls on here that it helps a lot. I can’t afford a maggie or I’d be getting one because of how great they hold everything in! Good luck and don’t be too hard on yourself!

My dress is corset but has a panel in under the corset so yep I’m wearing one….a longline seamless falina.

Most of the support from a corset comes from it resting properly on your hips, not how tight they tie the back of the corset.  You should be able to smooth away any bumps that are caused on your back by the corset too.

I didn’t wear a bra… mind you, I’m not very gifted in that area, so it wasn’t an issue. I actually had spaghetti straps added to my dress because I didn’t want to spend the day pulling the dress up and worrying about it falling down. However, if the corset is tight at it should be, this shouldn’t happen. So I don’t think you should loosen your courset.

For backfat, try this trick from another thread:

I went for my final dress fitting yesterday and I have been really concerned with them pulling the corset dress so tight that it causes back Cleavage! 

Every time I’ve had a fitting they pull it too tight and I get the back cleavage and I tell my mom and seamstress that I don’t want it like that to losen it up.  Of course they tell me “oh you can hardly notice!”  I’m sorry but you can, I’ve seen pictures of other brides and I’ve noticed it!

So I finally got it across yesterday to my seamstress and she was like “oh no biggie watch this”

She took her hands and ran them in between my dress and me.  She smoothed out my back cleavage with her hands!  She says that what happens is that the skin rolls up and you just have to smooth it out.  All this time I was freaking out about it and Magic!

Just wanted to pass this on because I never would have known otherwise.

I wore a maggie and I didn’t need a bra. Try loosening the corset a little less than what they did last time. It makes a huge difference. You also have 3 months before your wedding so maybe you could try diet and exercise?

I don’t know if it’s possible for you, but swimming will REALLY tone your back.  A few hours a week in the pool will do you wonders.  I was a swimmer for years and even now, after I’ve let my fitness routine go by the wayside, I still have musculature in my back.  (just no where else, eep!)  Plus, swimming is an awesome cardio workout without all the impact of running. 

Otherwise, I have a corset back dress too, but I plan on wearing a body shaper underneath.  Many of these don’t have the bulk and boning of a long line bra, but still provide support and another place to smush that back fat into so it doesn’t pop out.
