I actually do see what you mean about the boning, but is it that way because the dress is too big on you? Would it be a better fit in a smaller size? Is it comfortable?

Otherwise, it’s a lovely dress and beautiful on your figure.

Is the boning the two white vertical lines running down the front of the dress? If so, then yea…they’re kind of noticeable. But I love the silhouette on you! I don’t have any advice to give about what can be done about the boning, but if they can minimize the look of it, I say this may be your dress!

OMG that dress is beautiful!! And you look beautiful in it!! honestly i looked at the photo first and i thought wow that dress is amazing. Then i read you post and look at the picture again and noticed the boning right away, but didnt notice it at the first glance you would prolly get away with it if you didnt say anything to anybody but if you told me i wouldnt be able to notice anything else

If you have mixed feelings about it, I would walk away from it and continue trying on other dresses.  Use this one’s styling as an Place to start.  In my opinion, the boning /seaming is very very noticeable., and not in a good way.   I think its a pretty dress (although I think they photoshopped the heck out it for the adverisement image.) and the style really looks nice on you, but you need to love your dress not be ehhh about it.

I’m bothered by the boning. It’s looks very different from the picture. I would keep that body wrap/mermaid style in mind and keep looking personally.

@sevash:  I see what you mean about the boning. Other than that the dress looks amazing on you! I love the belt with it too. I would definitely keep looking though.

The visible boning would drive me nuts.   Very pretty dress, the neckline is so flattering.

That boning would be unacceptable to me.

I think the boning is noticeable.  If you wore some type of white strapless undergarment (body shaper, spanx, slip, etc) it might not show.  That material is a tiny bit sheer and adding solid white underneath will show less of your own skin tone thru the material.  It may work or it may not.  Just an idea.  It is beautiful on you!

The boning would bother me too. It’s even slightly noticable in the model pic. I would keep looking if that’s a problem for you. (It would be for me.)
