I might take it to an alterations place real quick and get them to replace it for you. Most regular dresses only have plastic boning from what I’ve experienced, and if you bent it the wrong way or maybe heat from a dryer or something may have melted it. If anything, I’d get a seam ripper (from any fabric store) and cut the area where the boning is and just pull it out.

It could also be twisted inside the casing. If you don’t want to take it a part and fix it yourself, your best option is to take it to a seamstress and have them take care of it for you. It shouldn’t cost to much and it shouldn’t be to difficult to fix. I wouldn’t recommend taking a seam ripper to it, unless you know what you are doing.

@noritake22: You’re right I should have mentioned that, I forget that not everyone rips up and puts their clothes back together like me, haha!
