    You look great. However, if losing a little weight will make you feel your best, then that’s what you should do.

    @bellagio: Seriously you look great. If you try to lose weight, you have to make sure you lose the appropriate area. The only area I notice is your back maybe just a bit of fat. How about just find some ways to lose the fat from that area (the back). I don’t think you need to lose 15 lbs…. just get rid of the fat of the back then it should be perfect!

    If you lose weight, will you have to have the dress altered again? Dont forget when you lose weight its not just your torso where the corset tightens, but the hips etc so it would have to be taken in there as well, in addition to the boob area likely. So can you afford that?

    Also, the weight is up to you. You need to feel comfortable and pretty in that dress, as well as happy.  Losing weight because strangers tell you to is not the right way to do it. You should live a healthier life for you, and only you, with the by product (even goal) to lose some weight.

    I think you look amazing in the dress the way you are!! I agree with @lefeymw- lose the weight if it would make you feel better and if you do it the healthy way, but I think you look amazing!

    How many more fittings to you plane to have? Is your wedding really in october because in that case you have lots more time and should wait till closer to the date for the fitting. Weigh loss is really a personal thing, I dont think anyone can or should tell you if you should lose weight

    It is not that you need to loose weight (you look amazing) it is the cut of the back of the dress that will cure the issue you have.  I will look for the article ( I think it was on WB also) that if you lower the back it takes the issues away.

    You look wonderful! If anything, a weight loss would just further your own self evaluation of yourself.  I really don’t see any need to lose the weight, but if it would make you feel better, then by all means I say go for it!

    You look beautiful! Your dress really does flatter you. Besides you cant spot reduce (meaning you cant just try and lose weight on your arms and back- you will lose it everywhere) so don’t mess with a good thing πŸ˜‰

    You look great, the only thing I’d suggest is toning your arms and back. Get some light weights and do some exercises at home for back, shoulders and arms.

    @tksjewelry: thanks for posting the link to the back-fat-dress-cut post, I was enlightened!
