Hello! I’m 2 weeks away from my wedding and at my second dress fitting today, it’s clear that my seamstress made my dress too small. From the front everything looks fine (though the dress is admittedly cinching my waist a lot), but from the back, it squeezes my skin together into back cleavage and gives me a back fat muffin top 🙁 I’ve never dealt with this before, because as you can see I’m a very average weight person! I’m feeling really panicked–the seamstress told me that she’d let the dress out under my shoulder blades, but I’m worried that the waist is what actually needs to be let out. Any advice on what to modify/ask for from the tailor, or anything that might help, would be deeply appreciated!!

I had this exact same problem when I went for my second fitting and I asked my seamstress to take out the waist. You don’t want to be worrying about it being too tight on your wedding day.

I think you are right…it is the waist area, where the back buttons are, that needs to be let out.

It’s definitely the waist – you can see the ‘pull lines’ coming off the top button. That is where it is too tight.

Ugh, I’m so sorry, Bee. Sending love.

I think she needs to let the waist out or you will be uncomfortable. If she can’t do that for some reason, sometimes people solve the problem by switching out the buttons for a lace-up corset back.

Looks like it’s too tight where you can see the crease forming in the back photo. That’s because it’s pulling there. Gorgeous dress though and I’m sure it can be sorted out.

Ask her to let it out a bit. It doesn’t look bad from the front but it does look a bit tight from the back. Can you even sit down in it? The last thing you want is to be uncomfortable on what will be a very long day!
