I would have them alter it so it doesn’t bunch up. Yes, posture is always a good thing, but you can only changes life-long habits so much before your wedding and it would be awful to look back on your photos and hate that bunching on your dress. It’s honestly not THAT bad, but it’d bug the heck out of me too!

You dress is going to bunch even with alterations, from sitting down/standing up and moving in general. I don’t think anyone will even notice, unless you tell them. I didn’t notice until I read it!

I had issues with my dress bunching.  I had to tell them to fix it as they never suggested it.  It was fixed quite easily and included in the total cost.  I am very particular and notice things so it wasn’t even a question.  I am glad I had it done.  Fyi – my lace dress (made similar to an Allure) didn’t bunch while standing or even wrinkle the day of my wedding with the ceremony starting at noon and reception was done at 2am.

I say get it fixed…if it bugs you now it will the day of the wedding.  Goegeous dress btw!

@cnrod:  To be honest….I am not too sure.  I think if it bunches it is cause one layer is tighter than the other.  It should just be a case of taking in the bunchie so it lays flat.  She fixed mine while I waited so it shouldn’t be a big fix.  Good luck.

I had a really similar dress as you did, but not the exact one. Mine bunched a little bit, and I let it go. It bugs me in ALL of my photos! Seriously, just have them fix it!

I’d have them fix it if they can. One less thing to worry about on the big day!

@cnrod:  Honestly I didn’t even notice.  I think no one else will either.  And its probably going to continue to bunch even with alterations because of movement.  So I say just relax and know it looks great.

It isn’t that bad, but if it bothers you I would have them fix it.  Otherwise, you will probably be hyper sensitive to it and zoom in on it once you get your photographs back.

I’d have them fix it.  It’s not a difficult fix and will make you and the dress look much better.

@cnrod:  Definitely fix it. I’m nitpicky, too, so maybe it’s just me – but my eyes went straight to that spot. The rest of the dress fits like a glove, so that baggier spot is noticeable.

I ordered the same dress. Mine comes in next month and I’m worried I’ll need a lot of work on mine too. My boobs are a size 2-4 and my hips are a size 6, so we’ll see what happens…

Question, though, what color is your dress? It looks like the light gold version but it’s hard to tell.

The seamstress needs to straighten out the stitching on the side seams (the stitches pulling down instead of exerting equal pressure out). It’s an easy fix 🙂
