I think you waited WAY to long to do anything really. From what I can see, if you try to pull it off you run a risk of maybe tearing the abdomen now.

This happened to me with my B.boehmei but I acted immediately, used a wet q-tip and peeled the still moist exo off.

Its a judgement call on your part now.

But, if it isn't hurting her, you can leave it, and it will molt again, possibly out of it.

^I tend to agree with this line of thought.

If it were my T, I would leave things be for fear of worsening the situation.
