Mine had just been shipped so it’s a little wrinkled as well.  But you get the idea 🙂

Here is mine.  They pressed it really good and I think it looked awesome.

With a little TLC, you can get the wrinkles out. My dress was shipped in a tight bag & was very wrinkled. I took an iron on very low heat and slowly worked out all the wrinkles. See before & after.

This was the sample and it was somewhat wrinkled.  I definitely think dress shops or places that you get alterations (if you need them) can get the wrinkles out.  A good steaming could work.. I’d Google it 😉

The lady who did my alterations steamed the dress, and my mom had a fabric steamer that she used on some last minute spots.  It wasn’t wrinkled at all after that.

It looks like there were a couple spots in that photo, but it must have been the underneath layers or something, because it disappeared.

This is when it first came in, there were a lot of wrinkles in the back especially:

mine was silk taffeta and sure there were some wrinkles, but it didn’t bother me because the torso area was pulled tight.

I like taffeta, I liked how it felt when I tried this dress on. It’s not my dress but it felt nice.

I love taffeta and my dress is taffeta. I must say that there are different types of it though, some are nicer than others
