Are you wearing a bra?  To me, it looks like your bust is sagging below where the dress expects it to be — like your bustline is too low and therefore the dress is too high.  I think you need proper undergarments and possibly also alterations.

it does look a little high.  try not to compare it to the model, she has a much longer torso so it will fit her differently.  it does look like she is wearing a fuller crinoline though.

I thinkit’s sitting a little to high too. We are all naturally a little fatty there. : ). We all show that bump in certain positions.  Stop hiking your dress up. You look beautiful!!!  : )))

I think you are wearing it to high… But if you lace the dress to tightly it will cause your skin to bubble out over the top. Try wearing it down a little lower and dont pull the laces as tight as they can go. If you still feel insecure, take it to a seamstress… many bridal shops will alter a gown even if they didn’t sell it to you.

We all have fat there — it’s part of the whole boob package. Note how the model is holding her shoulders back, which stretches that area and makes it look smooth.

Anyway, I agree with the others — it’s just sitting a bit high. I think it’s more of an alterations issue than simply pulling it down a llittle, but I’m no expert. See what the tailor thinks.
