@Twyla_Smith:  Aww sweetie! 🙁  I do honestly think that it looks fine, but it’s really hard to stand next to a tiny tiny tiny tiny girl like your sister!  (My sister is also the tall/skinny one between us – next to her I always manage to look like a truck)  I actually really like how the dress sits on you and that if I put my hand over your sister, you look great!  Don’t you worry, you look beautiful!

I think it looks fine (can you sit and breathe in it?), but yeah, they are NOT supposed to pull the measuring tape tight!

First of all, you and your sister have almost the same body types as my sister and I!  She’s about an inch taller than me but has always been super skinny and I’m not.  You can’t tell in the picture that it feels too tight.  The color and cut look very nice on you and you’ll be a gorgeous BM.  Once the dress is steamed it might help too?  One of my BM’s hated the way her dress fit (similar problem, it felt too tight) but when she steamed it, it relaxed a little bit and she felt fine in it that day.

I think you can leave the bust and waist the way they are. 

If there is any fabric in the hem to lengthen it  a bit? I think that would help give it a longer, leaner look. Hems can be done in a short time.
