@FortiesFlare:  I think that if you did lose a bit of weight, it might help, but also, have a look at the thread about how to “fix armpit and back fat with alterations, not exercise” that’s stickied at the top of the dress board.

Very pretty dress that looks great on you!

I think strapless dresses are just like that unless you have a supersupermodel body. It’s unfortunate that everyone and their cousin is wearing them; they’re really not the most flattering style in general. That said, I think you look much better than most and you really don’t need to worry so much! Very pretty dress! Congrats!

@FortiesFlare:  Cardio and diet will help you lose the weight before your wedding. There’s really no spot reducing exercises. When you lift weight the muscle you build will burn fat but it doesn’t always happen at even rate or as fast as we would like it to. I think with the amount of time you have cardio and diet will be the most efficient method.

I have the same problem, don’t you worry ! I also wanted to know the answer, short of dieting like a crazy woman and working my arse off (which is consequently burning my arse off, but not my back).

@FortiesFlare:  It can work for corset backs too. They just take out the first couple of loops at the top.

@FortiesFlare:  I’m not sure if this will help your back, but my it helps my boobs. I have big 34DDD breasts and when the dress is fitted correctly, I have the same pudge in the front. She said there nothing a good seamstress can physically do to the dress because my breast tissue is so full and goes up so high. SO, she sent me to get this thing called “top stick” toupee tape. Its hard to describe, but we apply it in a way that pulls the breast tissue on my chest down and then we tape it to my bra. It is meant for mens toupees (bald sweaty heads) so it works well. I have really sensitive skin and its actually not uncomfortable. She is one of the best seamstresses in Dallas and she swears by it. I haven’t had my wedding yet so I wont know 100% if it lasts, buts it’s at least worth a thought. If it works on the front end, it might work in the back?
