uh oh, back fat!?

Recommended Posts

I dont think it is back fat either. I think if you slightly pull up the dress everything will change.


And jillian michael's is the devil BUT amazing!!!

I just think that it was the way that you were standing at the time. I would worry about it! Really, you are getting married surrounded by your friends and family, they couldn't care less if you have a little bit of skin that isn't falling perfectly in place! At least that's what I tell myself when I feel bad about not exercising - I hurt my back and can't exercise anymore, you're busy and don't have time - same thing!

Hey i wish i had a pic from my first fitting, i had/have the same issue. I am about the same size as you too 5'5 115. So it is annoying that some parts squish out of the corest. I have been going to Hot yoga and doing a lot of cardio so i hope that helps. I only have three weeks :S


I know how you feel and i am just over it now, i am going to stop caring about those little details and enjoy my day :)

My quick fix suggestions:


Before you leave:

Do lat pull downs, rows, pushups, and pull ups (if you have the equipment) from home every other day.

Try to see if the alterations person can fix that (especially if it's too tight around the bust or if it's uncomfortable).

Loosen your corset bra or consider losing it in favor of boob tape (especially if there's a bit of padding that you don't need, because bulk in the front can make it tighter in the back).


At the resort:

See if the spa has a body wrap that specializes in taking off inches. They're not long term solutions, but some of them will take off an inch in a pinch by tightening the skin in your trouble areas.


Day of the Wedding:

Do any arm, shoulder, and upper back exercises you can with the equipment you have (don't have weights with you? Use a waterbottle in each hand!). Muscle training the day of a big event pumps blood into the muscles and makes you appear more toned.

Don't stress (as everyone else mentioned, you look great now).

Consider wearing a pashmina for some of your pictures.

Have your new husband put his arm around you! It covers the top of your back, and has the added bonus of getting to spend a few minutes in your lover's arms.

It can't hurt to do a little exercise but at the same time, I think it's just the way it cuts into your skin. One of my bridesmaids who was tiny kept getting that but it was because the cut didn't fit her right and it would gather skin so it looked like rolls. After trying on other dresses, we saw that it was just that particular dress doing so.

Lady DJ's got the right idea. While I think it is just skin, and possibly the dress not pulled up correctly the best thing to do is push-ups/plank, or lat pull-downs.


However, if you don't own a machine or have no time for the gym, then push-ups it is. Don't do excessive amounts (that's pointless) try for 3 sets of 12 (real push-ups) or start with 3 sets of 8 and work your way up. And start with a plank for 30 seconds, then work your way up to 1 min, 1.30, 2 etc.


If you have a bar at home, you can also do bent-over rows. This will strengthen your shoulders, back, core and legs. It's one of those complex movements.


Either way, I think you already look absolutely GORGEOUS in your dress ...

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
