No! Your dress is BEAUTIFUL and adding something like a jacket or sleeves would look terrible and definitely take away from it! Your back and arms look great! Do not change a thing. You look AMAZING!

I think you look great, and should not let this small thing ruin your dress or day. You don’t need a jacket.

Uhh what back chub???

You look amazing! I wouldn’t add sleeves or wear a jacket unless you’re getting married in a church that requires your shoulders to be covered, then just get a little lace bolero for the ceremony. Otherwise you look perfect!!

mayday6119 :  that dress is gorgeous. Try arching your back a little, I feel like this is either a posture issue, or a need for a bit of double sided tape issue, looks amazing from the front but appears to just not be sitting right in the back. If you can’t fix it and it really bugs you I vote for long hair extensions rather than anything fabric.

I don’t see any lumps or bumps! But I will be totally honest and say I am not as enthusiastic about the back of the dress on you. The front of the dress is more figure flattering IMO.

I would also like to add that some people just have a little bit of back fat. I’m a US size 6 and I almost always have a little something pudging out the top on the back whenever I wear something strapless. It needs to be tight enough to stay up which means (in my case) that the little bit of fat needs to go somewhere. Yours is no big deal and not noticable.

You look amazing 🙂

 

If it’s chilly I would add a shawl just for warmth, not to wear all day. But other than that, I would not add anything to cover up your ‘back chub’. You look beautiful!!!

 

AND MOST OF ALL CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! smile

nykkee :  I was gonna say the same thing after seeing the pics! OP, I think you are slouching just a tad in the pics. It’s my normal stance too and I have to consciously remember to arch my back push my shoulders back a little. I think that will make all the difference in the world! Stunning dress and you look great!

I love your dress! I don’t think you look like you have lumps/chub. I would keep it without a jacket.

I think you can pull it off. Maybe pair it with a less opaque veil? Perhaps one with a few layers of tulle or even in a lace to match your dress. Adding multple light layers of fabric will difuse the light over any trouble spots and provide you with a bit of natural camouflage.

You look absolutely beautiful in that dress! I wouldn’t have even thought about the ‘back chub’ if you hadn’t mentioned it, and even with you mentioning it, it’s not massively noticeable. We all have a bit of chub (well, I have a LOT of chub haha), but honestly it doesn’t look bad at all. The dress suits you perfectly, your back and arms look great. You don’t need a jacket. Be proud of who you are and what you have achieved, you are beautiful.
