I am not a dressmaker so I am not sure how to fix it, but i am pretty sure it needs to be slighltly altered, because it is a little high under the armpits, but this isn’t because of your body shape, rather just most wedding dresses need alterations.

My suggestion is to take it to a really good dressmaker and get them to work their magic, it is almost there, It is a beautiful dress, and with a few tweeks you will look flawless!

Actually the more I look at it the more I thinks it needs the two panels to be brought closer together. i think that would fix it.

the fabric that covers your bust and makes the heart shape, they seem to be too far apart, it looks like they need to be unstitched and brought together, i can only guess that you have a smallish frame and so they need to be brought in a bit, I can see that it is not loose, but I think a dressmaker could alter the heart shape by bringing in the panels closer together to make it sit better on you….um its hard to explain, but so they look more like this. obviously not as tight or as busty as this one, but see how it forms more of a heart.

I’m with @simpleandchic: … The panels are too far apart. You can see it cutting under your armpit. I think if it was altered to fit you properly you would love it.

@gemms28:  They would need to unstich them, I would just take the dress to a dressmaker.
