@Nagacho: Hmm, I’m not sure how it could be done without lowering it.  You don’t want it to be too loose because it will compromise the look and fit a little, I’d think.  I’d ask the seamstress and see what she has to say.  Good luck!

@Nagacho: I dont think that lowering it in the back will relly affect the front area you want to keep covered (armpit fat as you call it lol) The way Ive seen it done, is that it kinda scoops down from behind the arms, if that makes sense.

I agree that I would see if they can lower things in the back. even the thinest girls can look like they have ‘back fat’ if the skin is pushed up like that. definetly bring this with the seamstress.

I lowered the back of my dress, and the lowered part doesn’t begin until after my armpits in the back (if that makes sense)…..I don’t think it would affect the front part that you’re concerned with.

Totally agree with all the above posts…. I’ve seen several friends do this with their dresses (both thin and curvy) and it works!!! I plan on doing it to my dress as well. Even if a straight across back didn’t produce “back fat”, I still prefer the lowered look because it looks more romantic and less prom-y… know what I mean?

Good luck!

I would like to point out your dress is not pushing up “fat”, but catching your relaxed lats and teres muscles.

I actually want to do this too but I think it’ll cost too much for my dress design…

(it’s straight across)

I just have to wear my hair down and possibly have a little tape to try and keep my back fat under the dress? lol. This is why I’m wearing my hair down. =/
