    I think it looks fine but if your planning on wearring a necklace it would be great to see a picture

    If you want it to sit higher on you would take an extreme amount of altering, if it can be done.  The one thing that they might be able to do is add a mirrored crumb catcher to the inside of the dress that is slightly higher.   When they ordered the dress, did they not check the length from the waist to the top of the dress measurements?   I can only assume that all stores should do this as it was done on me with the two strapless dresses that I was considering before I bought one at DB.

    To be on the safe side I suggest that you take it to another semstress. A second opinion may be better then you could decide. Also I think if you feel this way it may be better to get it adjusted to make sure your comfortable b/c cause the last thing you want on your big day is to keep pulling up the dress b/c of how you feel. Whatever makes you comfortable I say go with it darling.

    I think it would look odd if it was up much higher.  I think it looks totally fine as is.  I can see why you would feel weird about it if it’s not what you’re expecting, but once you’ve had it on a few times and get used to it I’m sure you won’t even notice it.
