    did she take it in at the bust? or deepen the v? what exactly was she supposed to do to the top of the dress?

    It looks VERY similar to me, maybe like it needs to be pressed or like you need a better bra under it, but the structure of the dress looks the same.

    The left side looks a little smooshed or droopy compared to the right side, but it’s not botched. I think if you take it back to her and explain, it should be a pretty simple fix to just raise it up a little bit.

    I’m sorry, but after the alteration the dress is obviously higher on the left bust than it is on the right. Also, the alterations sit much too low on your chest. What exactly was the alteration she was trying to do?

    Definitely go back to her and make her fix it!!!

    It looks pretty much the same as before alterations to me.  After a few minutes of staring at it, the right side might look a little rounder, every so slightly.  Or my eyes could jsut be looking for something wrong since you said there was.  If you didnt mention something wrong, I would not have given it a second thought.

    Are there built in cups? It really looks like you’re just not well supported in it to me – maybe adding cups could help?

    The left side does look a little lower, but it could also be the way you’re standing with your hip out to the right. Try another picture standing straight up. If you’re not happy, go back to her and let her know. You paid for good services and she’d probably be the quickest at fixing it.

    Looking at it on your right it looks pointier.  It may just be how you are standing but it doesn’t look as rounded as the other side.   Its not a huge deal since you’ll be moving but for pictures it might drive you crazy.

    the left side does look lower and less rounded than the right side,  and if i was you i would definately go back to her to get it to put it right.

    if you go elsewhere its gonna cost again,  and why should you pay again ?  $400  is a lot of money,  so i would get her to sort it out for free.

    I agree with PP, I think it might be the way you are standing that makes the left side look different/lower.

    I would go back and get it fixed (if possible) so it’s exactly how you want it.  Otherwise it will bug you on the weddidng day and you’ll look for it in all the pictures and wish you had fixed it.

    Truthfully, I can’t tell the difference.

    I could tell…and if it is bothering you this much then you should go to a different seamstress and have them look at it.  Hopefully it is an easy fix..but one side is lower than the other..

    I think it needs to be pulled up quite a bit.  It isn’t sitting properly on your chest, and you may need more support.  As for the difference between the cups, I can’t tell if it’s how you are standing.  But it does look wonky to me.

    20 mins out of your way isn’t really that far, and I would prefer to have the first lady fix it rather then take it somewhere new and unknown.
