I’m wondering if it actually fits badly, or if it’s just bad lighting. In that pic, all the light is coming from above you, which puts a shadow under any little tiny bulge. In most buildings or outside, the lighting won’t do that. Could you take a pic in natural light and see if it looks better? It might not be as bad as you think when you factor out lights and standard bride panic 😉
Fwiw, I think you look really nice!

Have you tried putting on a high waisted petticoat, even made for ballgowns or A line dresses? It will possibly create a more A-line look on your dress but it may push the fabric out near the top area…..

annekw: I tend to agree with you about the seamstress, but I feel trapped because I have already paid this one so much, and it’s so close to the wedding. My last fitting is this Friday, so I think I am going to try to go armed with some different shapewear and be really insistent that there is an issue and she needs to fix it before next weekend. Meh!<br /><br />With all due respect, I think it would be a recipe for disaster to turn your gown over to a seamstress who has “iffy” skills, to have her fix the mess she made at the 11th hour. She may actually make it worse. And then what would you do? I second those who said to start looking for a top notch seamstress asap.
