I need your help. My wedding is coming up and I had my first dress fitting last week. The dress fit though is tight. I noticed some back fat spillage in the back but my bridal store said its fine. However, I heard this can be fixed by alterations? Im 5’4 and 1120 lbs and can usualy wear strapless dresses without any back fat spillage like the photo attached. What do you guys think? Should the dress need to be loosened up a bit? The photo #1 is back fat spillage at worse and photo #2 is what it looks like at best. Any pros/cons to getting it loosened further? Appreciate your help. Thanks!!!
Thanks for the feedback!!!

Thanks Happily Ever After!
I do prefer to avoid lowering the backline since the current cut actually hides the armpit fat in the front quite well and lowering it in the back may show it upfront.
Is there any other way to losen up the back?

@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?

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. =/
