As far as the dress not being the right one, I totally disagree!  I love the dress.  Especially the fabric flower!

You definitely don’t have overflowing back fat! I think your back/shoulders look great in the dress and I love the buttons down the back.

But you’ve got enough time to hit the gym if it’ll make you feel more confident. Or even just doing pushups every day would add tone.

I love the dress!!! the front is beautiful and the back isn’t overflowing…although I do agree it is a bit tight! I think going to the gym would really help…even though you don’t have a lot of time, going even just twice a week helps so much more then you’d think. Or even doing the 30 day Shred or a similar video at home.

I don’t think it’s a matter of you actually having excessive back fat. I think the bodice is too tight and needs to be let out a little so it’s not pinching you in and creating the “overflow” so to speak.

I think you look great. You will be a beautiful bride. But if you are still not feeling comfortable, try to have another go at the owner.

I’m just going to add my two cents and agree with almost everyone else here…I think the problem you’re having/seeing is that the top of the dress might be a little too tight.  (And are you kidding about back fat? Your family isn’t just being nice…you don’t have any.) It’s totally a (fixable) problem with the dress…not you!

No. Your dress looks fine to me. If you feel that it is too tight, try to tone up your arms and upper back.

When I was trying on dresses, the girl at Davids Bridal showed me a secrect. If you are wearing one of those things that holds you in under your dress, have someone go from the bottom of the bra thing and pull your “back fat” down into the bra. It works. I had this problem as well. But yours isn’t that bad at all. It should work. Hope I explained it good enough

Ok 1. there is a difference between back fat and having skin and muscles! It looks totally normal to me…just make sure it’s comfortable FOR YOU, you’ll be wearing it for quite a few hours.

Welcome to WB!  I think your dress is gorgeous and fits you like a glove.  I do not see a “back fat” issue at all.  Also, what type of fabric is your dress?  A lot of bridal fabrics are tight the first time you wear the dress, but once the fabric “warms up” (my consultant’s wording — she says it takes 30 mins to an hour) the dress relaxes.

I think it looks great!


However, if you are really concerned, you could consider wearing a veil (don’t know if you were going to). Not that you need to of course, but if you’re self-conscious it might make you feel less exposed!

I seriously dont see any back fat. If you want, I can send you a picture of my back fat and it will make you feel so much better. lol. I think the dress looks beautiful on you. It makes your figure look great.
