No matter what the reason I am sure it can be fixed.  A good undergarmet might do half the work for you.  That belt,bythe way, is gorgeous!

I think it can be fixed, but the alterations may be pricey. 🙂

Start with a proper fitting long line bra.  It will give you a better idea of the fit.  If you decide you need the alterations afterwards make sure you take the bra with you.  I personally would start all over only because I get superstitious about things.  I will agree  great seamstress should be able to fix the dress.

I’m not sure if it’s just the way it fits, but it doesn’t look like it has enough structure and support.  Start by trying it on with a longline bra or a good shaper (no spanx.  go for rago or the like) It probably could be altered, but it may cost the same as buying a better fitting dress.

I agree what people are saying about underwear. Go somewhere aimed at bigger busted ladies and get fitted properly. The right bra makes all the difference! To me in my totally amateur seamtressy opinion, the waist of the dress is lower than your natural waist. It needs bringing up a inch and a halfish, which will make it slightly more empire line. Do you have enough length in the skirt for the hem to be lifted that much? Also how full is the skirt? If the skirt is lifted so it sits better on your waist it may make you look a little shorter is the skirt is very poofy. At the same time empire waists can really give you a femminine short waisted long legged look.

Alternatively you could have the waist adjusted to fit you better and keep the longer bodice. That will be more flattering on your waist and hips. If you take it to an experience seamstress she’ll easily be able to make it fit beautifully. It can be saved very easily, you have loads of room to play with. When it fits proeprly you’ll look stunning!

Yes, it can be fixed. I think it only need some repair.
