Oh I LOVE this idea! I was going to get a bolero or something to cover the fat but I’ve also really liked the lower backs on the dresses, def going to bring this up with the seamstress at my next fitting!

Awesome idea! I’m going in to try on dresses this Saturday and I will make sure I ask them if they can lower the back of the dress to ensure the back butt doesnt show up my wedding day! Thanks to the OP for this advice!

Omgosh this solves my problem. My dress is cut straight across the top of my boobs and straight across my shoulder blades so I get this weird little bubble of fat all the way around. I’m having this lace bolero made into cap sleeves but that was more for look and less about the fat bubble. This will work perfectly.

I wonder if removing loops from my back will work? Do I have obvious back fat/pit fat?

I may just do it to lower the back a hair, I think that’d be pretty!

@anne B: This post is quite old so you may not even be one here anymore but i had to try. You are a dress maker so I thought you might have the best answer to my question. If I made my dress a lower cut in the back will it take the support off my chest? My dress is a corset back and i have a fairly large chest that needs the support.

This is my dress if that helps any and here is a link to see the back http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=S5229

this is awesome!  i have a corset back as well.  I just had my first fitting a few days ago and wore a bustier underneath and when they laced me up on the dress I had some seriouss back cleavage.  I told them to lower the back to hide it but it was ACTUALLY the bustier!  It had boning in it as well soo it was pushing everythiinng up (my girls were lookin good in the front, the back, not so much.  The seamstress told me not to wear any shapewear with a corset dress because its unecessary and its like putting on two corsets and all the tissue from the bustier was already migrating all my tissue anyway.  Once I took it off, my back was flat.  I still want to lower the back just for looks (I dieee with lower cut backs, especially V shaped).  I was wondering if anyone could tell me the approx price they paid for this alteration?

armpit fat has been my big fear this whole time, I went to a trainer to find out what exercises help tone down my armpit fat, thanks for advice, thought i was the only person that complained about the dress and armpit fat
