Sorry to hear this.  I will caution you though not to go crazy on the diet.  If they are going to let it out make sure you don’t loose too much or they may have to take it again.  I lost about 7 pounds between my last fitting and the wedding and my dress ended up a little loose.  Thank goodness for tape!!

What are you wearing underneath your dress? I had planned on wearing a bustier/long line bra under my dress and had terrible back fat! I tried my dress on WITHOUT the bustier (just no bra at all) and my back fat was pretty much non-existant. Maybe try a different undergarnment or no undergarnment at all and see if that helps!

@everyheart:  lol 

what is it about wedding planning that makes you snack? i swear… i never had a problem with fitting into things until now. i think it’s because i’m actually focused on it. this is one of the top ten reasons why i can’t wait until wedding planning is over. 

good luck! you can do it. drink water, exercise, eat but don’t snack. stay focused.

@everyheart:  i feel the exact same way. i may or may not have had 2 pieces of birthday cake late last night… if i didn’t have a wedding in 95 days, i would NEVER do anything like that.

is the back the biggest problem? I’d suggest just taking it out. 

I’ve started the dress shopping process, and have recently gained a couple pounds.

I think the beauty of corset backs is being able to tighten or loosen the dress due to a weight loss/gain during the last few weeks before the wedding.
