  1. 1

    Exercise to reduce or remove back fat. Concentrate on cardio exercise in addition to toning as cardio exercises help you tone up all over and reduce the total amount of body fat. Do this several months and up to a year before the wedding to reduce your back fat.

  2. 2

    Walk 20 or 30 minutes a day. Walking is one of the best ways to lose weight. Walk to get your blood flowing and increase the oxygen levels in your body, both of which promote weight loss.

  3. 3

    Eat healthy, low-fat foods. Eat several small meals a day to increase your metabolism and expedite the process of losing weight and back fat.

  4. 4

    Drink a lot of water. Replace your sugary or caloric drinks with water. Keep track to see how much weight you can lose by drinking only water. Surprise yourself when after eliminating soda from your diet for only a week or two that you have lost a few pounds, some of it off your back.

  5. 5

    Eat your meals at regular times each day Make sure to eat at least two hours before you go to bed each night. Do not eat right before going to sleep.

  6. 6

    Wear a specialised bra or girdle that is constructed to get rid of back fat. Take your wedding dress to a bridal shop or the intimate apparel department at your favourite clothing store and try these on before purchasing. Make sure your wedding dress covers the entire bra or girdle.

  7. 7

    Purchase a wedding dress that has a full back if you are still uncomfortable with the appearance of back fat.

Tips and warnings

  • Make sure you try your dress on about a month before the wedding, especially if you have lost some of that back fat. This allows you time to get your dress altered a little if necessary.
  • See what else you can eliminate from your diet, even for a few weeks to a month, to help you lose some of that stubborn back fat. Eliminating any fast food or junk food from your diet helps tremendously.
