I’m curious because I had a similar issues and I couldn’t find help online about it anyway. I think the boning needs to be taken out and redone but I’m not positive!

Yes I did!! Here’s a before and after, the boning stopped right at a point that it was making my love handle stick out. My seamstress just cut the whole thing out. It actually made the dress more comfortable. I’d say got for it! Beautiful dress!

I haven’t had an opportunity to look at wedding dresses at this point in my life, but I am a seamstress. . . so maybe I can help.

I think your Future Mother-In-Law is right– if the boning is cut so it ends just above where your waist joins your hips, there will no longer be that crease around the hips. The tight part of the bodice where it goes over your hips may wrinkle horizontally a bit more, though– the boning goes down to the hips to keep that fabric straight. If the fabric there isn’t totally skin-tight, that should not happen.

I think making sure the boning ends right above your natural waistline would make things better. πŸ™‚

@Puppy Love:  Yes, it does, in fact after I posted I was thinking about it more and this is exactly what I thought I would do on such a dress!

@Puppy Love:  I not sure if I’m looking at the right spot and forgive me if it’s wrong but, I see a little bump in the waist. I think it can be fixed because it’s barely noticeable.

Also, I want to tell you that dress is GORGEOUS!!! Loooove it!  You made a wonderful choice!!

I had the same issue.  My seamstress just shortened the boning and it worked like a charm.  It should be an easy fix so don’t stress!  Gorgeous dress byt the way! πŸ™‚

She needs to open the casing that houses the boning, slide it out, and cut it to length. Before sliding it back in, take a nail file to the boning ends and soften the plastic a bit. Bind with medium weight felt (not just any ol fabric). Slide back into casing, and sew back down.

If the boning is not in a closed casing (just sewn to the seams inside the lining), omit the instructions regarding casing. Bind, bind, bind….. Otherwise thhe boning will work through the fabric and stab you in the tummy all night πŸ™‚
