I think you look beautiful. In my opinion, I wouldn’t even know the buldge was there if you didn’t point it out. Do you have a side photo? I say keep the dress, but if you don’t want to and haven’t ordered it then choose a new one. You should be happy with your decision not second guessing yourself.

I don’t see it…do you have a picture from the side? 

I think I know what you’re talking about though, the part where the poof starts? No one will think you have a buldge, they’ll realize it’s just the dress.

I can relate to the scrutiny of the bulge!! I wanted a fitted gown and every dress I tried on, I would find something wrong with the tummy area. So for this reason, i am leaning towards (haven’t put the deposit down yet) a natural waist ball gown. Totally not what I expected, but it’s what I was most comfortable in. 

You look gorgeous and really don’t need to change anything. Everyone will say you don’t have a bulge, but you are your own biggest critique, so if it bugs you that much I would try Spanx or a corset to flatten the tummy. Do whatever you can to be happy in the dress you picked. Remember you picked it for a reason!!

I still dont see a bulge even with the circle around it. It looks like the dress begins to flare out at that point. Anyways, pretty dress =)

It’s the shape of the dress, I think. The “bulge” is unnoticeable to me in this picture. My guess is that you are used to long torsoed clothing rather than natural waist dresses (which begin higher). If you want something that’s flat or fitted to your whole waist, you’re going to need a more fitted style.

Unless you have a picture from the side that actually makes it look like you have a belly pooch — this is a gorgeous dress and you look flawless in it.

It is obvious in the second picture but I couldn’t see it in the first. It definitely looks like it’s part of the dress though, nobody could mistake it for you!

It looks like the skirt doesnt transition properly from the bodice. If they can’t take something out to fix that, I personally wouldn’t buy the dress. Now that you know it is there, it is all you will see when you look at your wedding photos.

Nobody wants to be the annoying bride, but you really should have a dress that you love.

I honestly don’t see it. If you want the dress to lay flat somehow, communicate that to your seamstress. Whether it makes the dress poof more or not, it is not what you want, wherever it is, so ask to have it altered. Perhaps material can be taken out from underneath to preserve the outer layer? I really don’t see it but I can imagine that would help in the situation you describe. Best wishes!

I don’t see what you’re talking about but if it bothers you than that’s definitely a problem.  Like PP said, I would talk to the seamstress and see how they can fix it.  Don’t stress yourself too much over it, I’m sure it will all be ok
