    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,

    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.

    Seamstress here.

     

    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 🙂
