It looks like the bodice might be sitting a bit low. That may be affecting how the hip/stomach area looks–it looks like the fabric is folding a bit there. Both of these things may be a result of the way you’re standing, as PP have suggested. If the bodice went up higher, I think the slight folding would disappear.

I think the dress looks good on you, but spanx helps almost everyone. I find it helps me stand up straighter, and that may help how it lays. Find some nice, strong Spanx and see if that doesn’t help your posture and the general lay of the dress.

I do think you’re just about there. Have you talked with your seamstress about your concerns?

@drA:  +100!!! Posture will make a ton of difference and will make you feel more confident too!  That dress is beautiful. I agree that supportive undergarments might boost your self-image a bit too, but don’t fret! You look lovely. 🙂

You look incredible, and the dress looks lovely on your figure. I agree with others that your posture makes a world of difference, and maybe try to shimmy the dress up a bit.

You look amazing! I felt the same way right before my wedding. It was rough. But I promise you’ll realize how amazing you look on your wedding day. Mainly because EVERYONE is going to be telling you that!

It’s a beautiful gown!  I agree with everyone….the dress needs to sit up a little higher (maybe even be a little tighter?) and you need to ‘stand up straight’ (said in my motherly voice) 🙂
