Hi bees –
I really love my dress, and I had my final fitting two days ago. It was hemmed, bustled and cups were inserted. I am so happy except… there is this horrible crease under my bust! It’s in every single photo, it’s not going away. I expressed concern and was told that it was because of my chest and that it’s nothing that steaming/pressing the day of won’t fix. She didn’t offer to fix it and sent me on my way, and basically said it was no big deal.
I can’t seem to get past it when I look at the photos. I really am pleased with her work and with the dress in general, but I am really worried about this crease. Has anyone else had a similar issue? Will steaming that area the day of resolve the issue? (By the way, there was NO crease before when I tried it on before the cups were inserted.)
I am getting married in CO. which is where I am from and where the seamstress is, but I live in WA, so I can’t really go back to her since the dress is in CO and I won’t be back until the wedding in 3 weeks.
Here is a photo so you can see what I am talking about! Any suggestions are so appreciated.

Mine did the exact same thing after I had the waist taken in a couple inches. I complained to the seamstress and she pulled down the front if the dress which made the crease *temporarily* disappear. Steaming did not help, and I just had to keep pulling down my dress to make the crease go away.

@kitakitten: have you tried, like I know it sounds middle school stuffing your bra, to see if it elates the crease makes it go away,

I would go back there and complain

Huh, when I first tried my dress on, I had a bit of a crease, just like that, but adding the cups in helped alleviate that issue. Could you make the cups any bigger? I bet that would help at least somewhat…

@kitakitten: It looks like an alteration issue to me. The seamstress should fix that. Some seam is pulled the wrong way

Be assertive and business-like– you asked for a service, make her show you. Don’t apologize for asking for it either. Call her up, tell her you are still concerned, and ask when you can come in to see it steamed.
I would also take this photo to another seamstress for a second opinion, just in case!

I would also go back, that is NOT something that will come out with a steaming. They should fix that for you. It could be the cups.

The entire center panel of the gown needs to be removed, trimmed, and resewn. The issue was likely always there, it is just now more prominent with the addition of the cups. Basically, the center bust fabric is off- center.
This is not the crease sometimes seen under a bust area. This is diagonal. It’s a prob with the manufacturing of the gown, not a fit issue on your body 🙂
