I dont think the bra is to blame unless its kind of like a shaper or corset and its long and pushes everything up. It looks simply like the dress doesnt fit as it should.

You may be the same weight (1) are you sure?) but maybe you changed something and lost some muscle so you are less firm? 

Did they take the dress in? Maybe they took it in too much?

it could also have to do with the way you are standing, ie having your arms pressed up against your sides.  you are glowing in that dress!!

It looks like the bodice is not fitting quite right…in the front shot you can also see puckering in the bodice which makes me think something is off.  I also doubt it is the bra but did you try with cups instead just to see if that helps? If I were you, I’d be scheduling another fitting with a seamstress immediately to see if the bodice could be let out a bit.

agree, I think the bodice looks too tight, not that your body is at fault. the embroidery is beautiful!

@JeSSie905:  I don’t think your weight needs to have changed to cause this….if at the first fitting you also experienced ‘rolls’ (even vertical ones) then it wasn’t fitting correctly then either.  Actually when I try picturing that, it makes sense it would have felt tighter the first time based on how she got you into it to do that. But really, regardless of how/why/what, there is only one fix for this–you need to have the bodice let out, or you will have ‘rolls’ on your wedding day. It’s a gorgeous dress, you love it, and you deserve to have it altered correctly.

ETA: no no no! just get her altered!

@JeSSie905:  It’s definitely not your body.  You could be a size 0, but if a dress doesn’t fit, you’ll have rolls and bulges.  I agree that you just need to have it let out a few millimeters.

I don’t think it’s you at all. I just think the dress is a bit too tight. Like pp said, you could be a size 0 and have bulges if your dress is way too tight.

I agree that the way the top is fitting looks wrong- it looks like it’s pulled in too tight. Your body is beautiful and you definitely do not need to lose weight. Could you try the dress on without the bra to double check if that’s the cause? Otherwise, I’d say your dress needs to be let out along the top slightly.
