Its really hard to say without pictures, but I would honestly just ask a seamstress at this point!

flymetothealtar :  I think you really should take it to a seamstress to have them evaluate it. I’ve heard that dresses can be altered down two sizes, so the top probably wont be a problem. I’m sure they can take the hips out a little to give it a little more room.

I would just take it to the seamstress. They are most likely used to these types of problems, so let them work their magic!

I think a seamstress could easily fix this. Most women are pear shaped, so I’m sure it’s not unusual to need a dress that’s smaller up top and bigger around the hips. I’m built the same way. Slender upper body, chest is only a B cup, but I’ve got some junk in the trunk. When I lose weight, it mostly comes from my upper body. Losing just 10 pounds can make my chest shrink down to an A cup, but my butt never shrinks no matter how much weight I lose. You’d be surprised how common this problem is.

The top should not be a problem at all my dress was 2 sizes two big up top due to my hips. In alterations they fixed it all so u would never know it was so big and it was a full corset top as well.

hips maybe harder depending on the how much material is in the seams but I would get it in ASAP so u know either way.  But I would maybe decrease lifting as heavier weights for a week or so as well so u don’t bulk up more muscle.
