I don’t think it’s too tight at all, you rock it but I do think it needs to be fitted correctly to fix the funky crinkle below your hips.

i think that it could also be the lighting in that picture. There is a lot of shadowing going on near your bust as well. I think the shadow in that picture is making it look as if the lines at your hips are defined- when they probably are not noticeable in person. 

Like many have suggested if there is a slight pull you could wear a shaper and that would completely solve the problem. There is certianly no need to let the dress out- it fits you like a glove! (A very beautiful glove!) 


Again- I really do think it is the lighting!

@lsnguyen7:  I think it hugs your curves beautifully. But I agree with some other bees, the alterations in the tummy area aren’t quite right. I would take it back & have them look at it again.

I just think it needs a little alteration because it doesn’t appear to be laying completely right but you still look beautiful in it.

It’s a bit snug which might just be an easy tailoring fix, or maybe a few months of sit ups with help it out? You got time! You have a great body though so I’m not sure you could even lose any lbs!!

I think the dress looks amazing on you!  It doesn’t look too tight but how does it feel? Also do a sit test and make sure you can sit in it comfortably!

Gorgeous! There is some crinkling by the hips- maybe because of undergarments? I agree with doing the sit test and if it feels uncomfortable or the crinkling doesn’t go away, take it back for some minor alterations. Awesome figure!!

it looks like it’s bunching in the belly. . . which is how my dress looks, as well, but that’s because it’s too big in that area (haven’t had my first fitting yet). So I’d say yours fits just right! It looks amazing on you, btw!

Beautiful dress! It looks great on you, not too tight at all. A 6 would have been too big for sure. I do agree that there’s a funny little line around the tummy, but definitely try Spanx or maybe get it taken in at a very specific spot to pull in that tiny bit of excess fabric in. Your seamstress should know how to handle it!

It doesn’t look too tight, but it does look a bit odd around the tummy area.
