My dress is fitted through the hip and the bunching is about the same.  I have similar measuremens too 36-29-43.  It is right where I bend at the hips.  It does not look bad though. I am pretty sure all the dress adds photoshop out any bunching on the models, or the models just do not have any meat on their bones.  

It is not bunching because you are pear shapped, it is bunching because you have thighs.  All dresses will bunch on everyone like that unless their thighs are so thin they do not go past the plane of their hips. (their hips stick out freakishly far over their legs).  

You have to check that the lining is pulled down after you have the dress on.  Just ask someone to pull the lining for you while you hold the dress inplace.  

Make sure the dress is fitted properly across the hips.  Letting the dress out at the hips will prevent the bunching from being really bad.

Embrace it.  No one will look at the bunching once you have the whole look complete.

bowling16 :  you won’t think of it during the day! You walk, move, you might lift your dress up, etc. so it’s only natural that it will. Mine did and I don’t even think about it when looking at my photos.
