Looks like it fits fine. I’d wear a padded bra if needed and just try to avoid dropping more than another 5-10lbs.

I see your wedding is in August – is this correct?  I know when I had my dress altered, I had my final fitting about 2 weeks before the wedding, and then picked up my gown (including one last try on with the tailor for any emergency adjustments) about a week out.    Is there a reason you had alterations done so early? Can you schedule an appointment with your tailor for about 2 weeks out for a fitting, allowing time for any final nips or tucks?

At my first wedding, I also had a final fitting within two weeks of the wedding date for last minute changes as I was dropping weight unintentionally.  I tend to do that when I get too busy but, that is neither here nor there lol.  I, personally, wouldn’t change your strives towards a healthier life but, do think it would be a good idea to have a seamstress/tailor in the wings for last minute touch ups if they are needed.

Your dress looks beautiful and fine in the picture.  Hard to tell if it looks big. 

I would have it altered again though and another fitting a week or two prior to the wedding.  Have you consiered having a lace up back put in? That way if you lose more weight the dress can be pulled in
