@bee1000:  Gorgeous dress! Mine does the same, and my seamstress told me that it’s because the gown is too long. She also said that I could have a tiny bit taken in from the hips, but I’m hesitant to do that, in fear that I won’t be able to sit! 

Looking forward to what the other bees say! I’m still 6 months out from alterations.

@bee1000:  Bring your dress to DB and try their fit and flare slip with your dress. See if that helps.

@bee1000:  Very pretty dress!  Unfortunately, I don’t have any suggestions, but commenting to follow because my dress also does the same thing.

@bee1000:  I avoided this by wearing a longline bra and shapewear… no undies! You are very thin, so you probably don’t want to wear and extra layer if it’s not needed, but I had some belly to disguise and I wore a piece of “rago” shapewear that went from my waist to my thighs, and it had a flap for peeing, lol.


My other suggestion is  a full of half slip and/or some “no show” underwear in a silky, microfiber… a fabric that will let the layers of your dress easily slide over your undies without bunching. Victoria’s secret has some that work well, I have a few pairs I got with a “free panty” card. For no lines, I usually go with a low rise hipster that completely covers my tush, rather than a thong, because I find them more comfortanble.
