My dress came in today and it fits. Only thing is this dumb wrinkle right On my lower belly. It looks like I have a pooch…. I have no clue how to remedy this but it drives me insane. I have to walk so stiff and straight up to get it to go away. Anyone know of anything to fix this?? Some kind of stiff material I can put on the inside to make it not so flimsy and lay flat? Both of these photos you can kind of see the weird wrinkle that makes it look like a corset

Dresses get horizontal wrinkles when they are too tight. It could be just a smidge too tight which stops the fabric from sliding down over your hips. It could even be just the lining or inner layer.

It was just taken out at the hips because it was too tight. It even had the wrinkle right there when I tried the sample that was 4 sizes too big. It flattened out a little bit as I wore it but still not as flush as I’d like it to be. I’m trying to think if there is some kind of under material I can attach to that to keep it from wrinkling as I move.

hard to tell in a picture, but to make a guess I think that it may be stitched improperly. I’d get a second opinion from another seamstress if it was me. If fixing the problem requires a lot of taking the seams apart, that could make the situation worse or very expensive. I don’t think it looks bad at all. Had you not mentioned it in the post I probably wouldn’t have realized the imperfection was there at all. I had to look closely to see what you were talking about. I you can’t find a way to smooth it out, rememeber that most all pictures are now edited and that could maybe be taken care of in your pictures. In any case, you’re likely to be the only one to really notice it, so unless it’s uncomfortable I wouldn’t stress it too much.

I also have a hard time seeing exactly what you mean, even while purposefully looking for it, so I don’t think your guests will notice too much.
If it’s still going to stress you out, take it to a seamstress and see what their opinion on it is.
If nothing can be done, just talk to your photographer to make sure they edit it out in your official photos. As a photographer myself, it would would be a very easy fix in Photoshop.

Horizontal wrinkles usually occur above the area that needs to be let out. You might want to let the dress out more at the top of your thighs. Otherwise, wear it around the house and see if the fabric will stretch some as some fabric does stretch.

I asked my mom if she truly noticed it when looking at the whole thing and she said not really. I do think I’m over thinking it but it is still bothersome (perfectionist). I thought that maybe it should be let out a bit more also but it moves pretty loose over my hips so I’m not sure that will fix it.
I’m going to wear it here and there a bit more to see if it stretches it out a tad but I think it might be the way it’s made. The outer lace layer is attached to the inner layer so it might be a factor also.
