So I have got my dress now and i love it. It fits me like a glove, apart from the crinkles around my hips! Now when I look back through the pictures i noticed that all that style dresses that I have tried had the same problem, but I didnt worry too much as it wasnt really my size in the store. And I didnt even worry that much when I tried my dress as I thought that will be fixed at the dress fitting.
So I had my first appointment last week and there is not really much can be done as the dress already quite tight fitted (could be lossen as laced back) and even if tighned more by taking in at the sides, that wont make the crinkles to go away as it crikles this way ↑ ↓ rather than → ←please see pictures, (hopes it makes sence). It looks like the onlyway to get rid of them is to put seam across, which is not an option as it would ruin the dress and look awful. I am being told that this is just the style of the dress but it really annoys me, just want it to be perfect. I googled and noticed that even model has crincles, but just not as extreme as mine.
It must be something can be done right? Someone must had the same problem? in the last picture when i pull my dress up, it seems it goes away, so maybe i need fuller bust? My seamstress is convinced that the right undergarments should fix it. Any ideas of what tyoe of undergarments? many thanks girls for any advice, as this is really stressing me! xx

missingute: Can your seamstress put any boning in? I realize that’s a bit lower than boning would typically go, but my lace mermaid dress sort of fell down and wrinkled like that. Once I put on the bustier it smoothed out. The dress just needed more structure.

I have the same worry about my trumpet dress (hasn’t arrived yet). Please keep us up to date on what you find out!

No advice, really but I noticed this even on model photos of some mermaid dresses.

missingute: In my experience there will always be some lines when you move, but they can be minimised. The dress could be a) too tight around the hips which causes the material to pull, b) too loose, c) have a tighter lining that causes the wrinkles. Hopefully the seamstress can help.

my mermaid does the same thing….seamstresss said there has to be extra fabric/room there or i wouldn’t be able to sit down. it make me feel like i have a “pooch” when i don’t at all! so. idk. ya, i have the same problem.

I have the same problem. It did get better when I tried it in with the right undergarments (a pair of underwear that shapes and I also added a thin slip). Still not perfect but definitely helps a lot

I read a post on here somewhere about a lady who got her seamstress to add boning further down the dress to prevent that happening. I guess maybe behind the seams might make them well hidden.
Im also worryig about this with my mermaid (which i too havent got yet) although i think im just going to get it made tight and worry about sitting later on rather then the crinkles in the wedding photos haha.

I have the same issue though my wedding is 10 months from now so there’s still time to solve it, hopefully. I bought my dress at a sample sale four months ago but luckliy at the time, it fit almost perfectly. The hips were a little too tight and had crinkling. I tried the dress on a few weeks ago but this time it was at least a size too large and there was more crinkling than ever. I was told that it’s a mermaid/fit-and-flare dress problem :-(.

missingute: I actually think it looks better with the crinkles than it does in the last photo!

The only thing I can think of is to shorten the body maybe?? Not entirely sure how thst would be done though

I had the same issue, my seamstress said it has to do with your thighs being larger than your stomach area. You’ll always have that gap in the dress. The best thing to do for photos is pull up the dress from the top side! I didn’t have an issue with my photos 🙂
