I think it looks fab. Albeit sideways. The bunching won’t be noticable: you’ll be gallavanting, dancing, posing, hugging, not just standing stoicly at the wedding.

Where does it ride up? Would that be fixed by tightening it around the knees?

@almoste:  I don’t know about alterations but you have A beautiful dress!

@almoste:  Is it comfortable? I think it looks beautiful on you, but for me personally if it was my dress, I think I’d have it altered a bit on the bottom as long as it doesn’t compromise my comfort or the functionality of the dress.

I think it looks fine as is, plus you will need a bit of room to move around comfortably

Looks great, unless there’s something you’re worried about that we can’t see!

To me, it looks like it could use a little altering around the hip area but I recommend you talk to a seamstress to see how tight it would be if altered.  If she takes in the hip area but leaves the thigh area, it should take out the bunching you see but you will still be able to move easily, pee, etc.  Talking to a seamstress won’t cost you anything and could identify what your options are.  Beautiful dress.  Good luck.

Honestly, I’m not really seeing any problems – I think the dress is stunning on you!

I see a few of the waves your talking about. I would talk to a seamstress about it. Perhaps they can tighten it a bit without making it uncomfortable.
