My wedding is in 12 days and im a bit stressed
the bust area is a bit big (i can reach my hand in and pull the tag out)
and it creates a fold around my waist?
anyone has the same experience? It can’t be im too fat right?
the seamstress from hong kong said i need to lose more weight around the waist then the fold will go away
But even with spanx on, the fold is still there!
so i figured it must be the bust too big which causes it to slide down and hence the fold?
sorry just worried and wanted to talk about it

I am not sure sorry!!! But I think you should find a good seamstress at a wedding shop in your area asap!!! I’ve heard they can work wonders and they will know what the issue is and what has to be done.
Good Luck 🙂

It definitely sounds like it’s too big, I would look for another seamstress asap! Even if it had anything to do with your weight, a wonderful seamstress could work magic on any dress! It should fit like a glove

I would also find another seamstress. I know that mine said they could still do alterations up to 10 days before the wedding so you could still get some work done on the dress.

Is there boning in the bodice area?

I had the same issue with several I tried on, and it was due to the fit. I have a high natural waist, and I found a lot of gowns were a lot longer waisted than I was. I couldn’t get the top high enough (and stay) to keep the length of body right. I also carry my excess pudge on top of my hips, and it caused the skirt to bunch up also.
I’d find a seamstress asap and get it looked at, there may be a super easy fix!

thanks girls..ill see my trusted seamstress on friday
hoepfully she can fix it
yeah i googled and it says the fold could be due to the dress torso being too long (needs to be shorten)
cant believe the dress store seamstress said i needed to lose weight!!!

@viv81: Hello, did you get your dress fixed correctly? I have a dress that has this fold in the boning too, and it’s weird, it doesn’t go away, even with spanx. It’s not that tight, so I don’t think I’m too fat in that area!
