I’m probably just having a momentary freak out, but I’m hating how my back looks in my dress:-( i love the dress and had a fitting today and it fits like a glove, but my arms and back look totally manly to me. I’m pretty petite (5″2), but i feel like i look like a giant weird female bodybuilder from the back. I am going to be wearing my hair down, so i’m hoping that will soften things up, but I’m feeling like crap right now. The wedding is in a month so it’s not like I can really change anything and i love the dress from the front. Am I just being overly critical of myself???

Girl, as a fellow “broad shoulder” petite girl, I totally understand what you’re going through. And to be quite honest, your post is helping ME because I realize how ridiculous I’m being! Don’t you worry about a thing – you look GORGEOUS and the dress just looks gorgeous on you, especially the back! You look strong and toned, and are a beautiful bride!

Yes, you’re being over critical. Your back looks a woman who does some upper body strength workouts and is in good shape. If you’re feeling self conscious about it still, a veil would probably soften things a bit.

I see what you mean from that photo, but I wonder if that’s just the way that you’re standing and whether or not you actually have the boxy look in “real life.” It’s really not as bad as you say, you don’t look like a body-builder at all.

You look sexy and buff with those guns, woman!! My shoulders are wider than my hips and I feel like an Olympian swimmer! Fit is sexy. You look great!

I have broad shoulders too, so I definitely understand your pains. I understand how you feel, but I really donèt see what you are seeing. You do not look like a body builder ( not that its bad too), or big and manly by any means. You have got a really nice shape. Small waist, nice muscle tone…
Also, once your hair nd makeup are done, you will feel and look like a million bucks. I love your dress btw.

Thank you ladies SOOOOO much! I will stop obsessing now! I am wearing a veil for the ceremony but I think you guys are totally right, once my hair and makeup is done it will be a whole new ball game. I have never thought I had broad shoulders or looked manly, but I also never look at pictures of myself from the back, so I guess it was just a bit jarring lol.

Im pretty sure its just the way you’re standing, try relaxing your arms a bit more and pushing your chest out, shoulders back, and head up 🙂 otherwise, you look great

I really don’t see anything wrong with your back, at all. But if it bothers you, you can always wear a veil that comes fown at least to the top of your dress.

And if anybody says anything different on your wedding day, just sock ’em… You may be small, but I bet you can pack a punch.
