    @MrsBeck:  It looks a little baggy at the bottom of the jeweled piece and on the sides.

    The sides need to be taken in a bit, I think. Nothing too drastic.

    As for the part around the jeweled piece … have you tried a different bra? Maybe that would help? If not, I would have that taken in a bit too while you’re at it. The dress looks great otherwise. It will be perfect with the minor fixes.

    Definitely fix it! Beautiful though !  I say this for two reasons. My dress had similar excess in the  same area (could have fit a rolled up towel in there!) I hate how my pics look bc I feel like I could have looked ‘skinnier’ plus dress will loosen over course of day so it will only get worse !

    I think if you take it in more you’ll risk it being too tight, and even just a tiny bit too tight can cause the fabric to pull and ripple.

    Seems like that might be cutting it a little close…did they leave the space in there so you’d be able to breathe/sit/dance?

    If they could take it in a bit, I would say yes, though.

    i wonder if the dress will do that under the center of the breast area anyways regardless if taken in or not.  I am thinking that is how its made and that it will never have that “flat” look that I think you are asking for. B/c even when you hold it in it still does the same thing.  Are you using the straps or not b/c in other post you are not wearing the straps.  Not sure if this holds it up better.

    @MrsBeck:  Even before I read/saw what alterations you still needed, I could tell from that first photo that the bodice is way too big. It might not have been that noticeable with a different dress style, but it’s pretty noticeable with your dress (esp. from the side). I think a great fit is essential to looking and feeling beautiful in your dress. So, I think further alterations is a must. 

    Take the top out a bit if you’re too uncomfortable with the breathing restrictions, but definitely take the bottom in. Just have faith that it’ll all work out, love!
