Thanks for the suggestions! I am going to raise straps first and move them in the back more laterally. I will also put boning in at side seam. Hopefully I won't have to shorten the bodice. That sounds like more trouble. I will remember that if I make this dress again though.

I think it may be just a tiny bit long in the back bodice. It's settling at the waist and the excess fabric is rippling. I think I would try ArtAttack's recommendation and see if shortening the straps slightly would help; much easier than shortening the bodice at this point. Honestly though, I doubt I would have even noticed had you not requested feedback. As sewists I think we're often fit perfectionists and no normal person would probably see the problem

Hmmm...have you tried shortening the straps to see if it takes out that excess? I just helped a friend with that problem and it was a simple fix.
