iscnrr1331 :  oh my god you and that dress are both stunning!! I think maybe it may be that you are just not as happy with your body as you may be. It’s okay, that totally happens sometimes and I’m currently going through something similar. Take some time to focus on the positives because you look absolutely gorgeous

Wow bee, firstly, you look amazng and definitely have the wow factor. But I know insecurities stare at us and it’s all we can see, and of course you don’t want those insecurities highlighted on your wedding day. I wish I could take your insecurities away, because you look beautiful, but I have my own insecurities and can relate. From my experience, I did everything I could to ‘hide’ my flaws that I didn’t like, which included my wine belly, armpits, and back arms. That meant I wore double spanx that held me in nicely, I did alter my dress to have ‘straps’ with the lace strategically placed to cover my armpits, but my back up was to wear my hair down and pulled in front to cover the armpit area. As for my back arms, I struggled how to cover and just tried to pose for photos straight on instead of sideways or backwards. If those tips help at all, please be creative to ‘hide’ your flaws, like you might hide a pimple with make-up. If your back is bothering you, what about wearing your veil all night? I do think you look gorgeous, and wish you the best day.

Wow, don’t usually comment on these types of post but you look amazing. Don’t overanalyze, you look great and fits you like a glove but doesn’t look tight or you are squeezed in at all. Just wait till you have the hair, makeup, and whole shebang and it will all be ok. I felt the same with my dress till day of and you look way better than I ever did.

I think it’s look absolutely gorgeous. I agree with PP, the ‘back fat’ you are referring to is just skin. If you really feel that conscious of it, you can get some hair extensions in time and have the hair dresser do voluminous curls and/or add a longer/boofier veil to cover as well. But you look stunning regardless.

Wow, you look amazing!!!  That dress is so flattering on you and it’s such a timeless and elegant dress!  

 

May at I ask which dress that is?

 

I’m not sure if our opinion counts or matters, but you look amazing in that dress!  I know nothing we say will alleviate your concerns about this dress, but for what it’s worth, this dress is breathtaking!

You look really beautiful, the dress is wonderful. Just wear different undergarments as your knickers can be seen through the dress in these photos.

You really DO have some issue with how you are seeing yourself because you are SPECTACULAR in that dress.  You have a crazy gorgeous figure and that dress shows it off to perfection.

Its not a simple wow factor- it’s a GASP then fall over factor.

A bride should be happy and in love with her dress.  Maybe try to get other views of yourself.  Have someone phone-video you in different lighting, walking, dancing.  Maybe getting a different view will help raise your opinion.

Not kidding -your Fiance and guests won’t believe what they are seeing!

iscnrr1331 :  I do see the back fat that you’re talking about (at least in the photo).  Is there anyway you can get the dress let out just a little at the top?  If not, maybe you can wear your hair down? I’m just being nit picky as I would want someone to be with me.  You will be a beautiful bride.
