I’m not an expert but I would suggest for you to go to a seamstress to see what could be done.

Seamstresses can be really handy. I agree that you should take it to one and see if they say they can fix it. I don’t know how you or the BM feel about it, but if they can’t fix it by adding material, they could probably fix it by putting in a corset back. You said that one of the other bridesmaids needed to have hers taken in too; depending on how much, they could maybe take fabric from that.

@cuddlz88:  I personally wouldn’t want to wesr spanx either, but it seems like everyone else on here recommends it. If your friend has recently had a baby, is it likely that she will lose the baby weight quickly? Also, if she pulls the dress up higher, is that any better?  Maybe having the bust altered might help it fall a little better.

@cuddlz88:  Agree with the spanx.  Since it zips, it’s just a distribution of weight problem.  Spanx should be able to smooth it out.

how much length is at the bottom of the dress, they could shorten the zipper but it would take some length out, or maybe they can let the sides out

@cuddlz88:  You could have the zip removed and a corset back put in- that way if she loses weight it can be tightened and if not she will be comfy and beautiful 🙂
