poppy123 :  hmm. sadly there’s not a whole lot you can do. the fact is that the corset adds bulk to your figure that then suddenly stops, and the dress fabric is too thin to hide that. my only suggestion would be to buy some spanx shorts and try pulling them up and over top of the corset (so the corset is tucked into the shorts). if you’re luckily, this might just smooth out the ridge just enough so that it’s not noticeable in your dress.

poppy123 :  Is the dress too tight in that area? Was it obvious before any alterations? I can’t think of any other reason it would start to show only after alterations were done.

poppy123 :  Can you contact the designer? The bent corset thing sounds plausible. The designer should be able to help.

I would nix the corset, do Spanx shorts, and sew bra cups in.

poppy123 :  to be honest you’re really slim…you don’t need the corset. I would have it removed and wear spanx if you want a little extra support for your tummy area. Good luck bee 💗

I totally agree with the other bees you don’t need the corset ditch it, or have the dress made slightly bigger where the line is xx

poppy123 :  honestly it makes me wonder if other brides in the pics you’ve seen just totally removed the corset. I don’t see how you won’t see that line with that fabric unless you alter the fit of the dress enough to where it’s actually too big on your hips

Def contact the designer, I’d do it myself if the store won’t.

A big part of what you’re paying for is that amazing profile and streamlined look a corset gives. It looks like it wasn’t finished properly or is missing lining.  The dress is meant to be worn with the included corset and there’s no way it is meant to look like that, although you might see the end of the corset, it shouldn’t be this obvious.

ETA from interview with this designer(quoting so you can see bit about three fittings for corset):

1 – What is the difference between a couture and ready to wear gown?

Ready to wear gowns are dresses which have been made up in a range of sizes and are ready to buy – off the rail. Usually some adjustments are possible, such as a hem adjustment, at an extra cost. Couture is a word that is misused a lot these days. A true couture gown is one that is handmade to the client’s measurements. Our gowns are fully couture, and each one is handmade for each bride. We provide a service where a toile of the corset is made up (this is a mock version of the corset) to enable the perfect fit. At this point changes can be made to fit and style until the bride is completely happy with the result. THE gown is then made up based on this fitting. Finer details and fit can be adjusted in the final fitting. Our gowns involve a minimum of three fittings- first measurements, toile fitting and final gown fitting, but this can vary depending on each gown.
