@childofthe1980s:  Oh no, sad! Are there ways that you can make the dress a little more comfortable in alterations?  Do you have photos of your dress?

Is it possible to wear something underneath the dress to make it more comfortable? Something like spanx, just to put a layer between your skin and the boning?

Oh my goodness. Alterations will be able to help you make it comfortable! They can either remove or move the boning, change the boning material to make it more comfortable or maybe even add a layer underneath to add padding. The more changes you make the more money it will cost though. Another option might be to wrap your scar areas in bandages so they are protected?

if the boning is hurting you, it sounds like it’s really tight so taking the boning out altogether won’t hurt the shape too much. another option would be to shorten the boning – usually if you feel like you’re being poked, the boning is too long. make sure whoever does it rounds off the ends rather than cutting it straight, and maybe wraps a little bit of padding around the end, if it won’t hurt the silhouette too much. you could also ask your alterations person about replacing it with a different kind of boning – some are more flexible than others.
