    Contact the dress shop, show them these pictures, and request the waist to be lowered.

    Do nothing, it looks fine!

    LadyMoriarty:  First let me say you look great in the after picture. I would say it makes you look more curvy to me and that not me trying to be nice but being honest. To you it may seem like you’ve gained weight but to me the first picture may look nice on you but it didn’t show off your figure you seem more square shaped IMO. There are differences in those dress but it was honestly because of the changes your made the bigest on beign the belt. In the first picture it’s wide and starts directly under the bust. The second picture it is lower and sit at the natural waist and sit lower then the first one. I think this may be the reason it may look fuller aswell. They may have added more to full it out since the belt is lower also.  I think the neckline may be different too. I don’t know if thats how you wanted it but the first dress have a wide V neckline with a V back yours hve buttons in the back which make it seem that the back is total closed and the neckline in the after dress the neckline is narrower and the sweetheart seem lower to me but that can be because of the fit maybe?? I will say though the three changes that you’ve made would make a different dress to me changing the lace makes it a different dress even if the fit is the same (maybe because so may designers have the smae or similar fit but the only thing that makes theirs different is the lace detail). 

    EDIT: Just saw your update and the newer dress is better. The changes you made to the dress were perfect. Glad you got exactly what you wanted and you’re happy with the correct changes.

    It looks like there is also much more pleating beneath the belt in the second picture.  On the first picture the belt was just below your breasts; now it is much lower.  I’m being brutally honest but in the first picture you definitely look smaller in your waist.  In the second picture your boobs look bigger also.  Don’t know if that bothers you. I like the first dress better, but it is how YOU feel in the dress.  They are both beautiful dresses!
