Hello! I felt this same way. I ended up buying a dress without boning. II have a nice hourglass shape and  felt boning made me look really boxy, kind of like I just went straight down until my hips. The dress I bought without boning allowed my waist to be defined.

I do feel this way about boning – I don’t know why but I feel like it also makes me look boxy. 

Could you ask your seamstress to remove the boning, or would it completely change the dress? (I have done this a few times on other regular dresses I owned becuse I loved the dress, but hated the boning.) So I just cut the bottom of the seam, took out the boning and sewed it back up.
