It looks like a former owner took the dress in at the bust by angling the sideseams from the waist to underarms - if it was returned to original fit, you could add 1 to 1.5" back to the bust measurement. At some point, the belt was also altered, adding a piece of matching fabric to lengthen it at the buckle - see closeup. No stains, holes, tears or other issues noted.
