can you loosen up the corset a bit on top…. that may help… and also try ‘sweeping’ the back fat into the dress….. sounds silly but it works lol

I like the veil. Can’t you just be a little bit looser on the top when you get tied in to avoid the back roll?

First of all, your dress is beautiful! And honestly, I don’t think the “back fat” is that bad. If it will make you feel more comfortable, then go with the veil, but I don’t really think it hides your back very much at all. For true coverage, you could consider a mini bolero for the ceremony. (There are some gorgeous, funky ones on Etsy.)

I feel your pain! I have the same problem and one my Bridesmaid or Best Man suggested wearing the veil all day. LOL!  I was planning to wear it at the ceremony but not reception but if I can’t get rid of it in two months, it’s going to be part of my acessorie on my wedding day. 🙂

@babylou: I agree. I don’t really think the veil hides anything so if you don’t want to wear one, then don’t. I also have the back fat problem so I have been looking for a cute ivory, lace bolero to wear instead of a veil.

@dthoffman27: Could you have alterations make a bigger panel for underneath the corset so you can loosen it more in the back? I think that would help a lot! I believe it’s a pretty easy fix and should not be noticable since it’s all covered by the laces!

You look lovely with our without the veil 🙂

I am also a busty woman, and I had the same problem. If you seamstress can let out the side seams up by your bust a bit, it should alleviate most of the problem area, if not all.

I was so worried about the boobs/back area overflowing, and my seamstress fixed it without alterations. Just make sure the bra and corset are not too tight up top, but tighter in your waist area to accentuate those curves! That way you can choose to wear the veil or not based on how you feel rather than hiding your beautiful body!

I would say veil.

 

try to loosen the corset. or let it out 1/4 or 1/2″

in the last picture, it looks like the fabric is pulling by the sash, so the dress looks a little tight in that area. It is not laying flat. letting it out would probably bring that down a little and help with the over hang too.
