Has anyone found during the alterations process that if they make their fitted dress too tight, it bunches awkwardly?
I went for my first fitting last week, and they encouraged me to make it less fitted than I’d originally planned to, to avoid any awkward bunching around the midsection. I’m going to wait and see how it fits during my second fitting (we brought it in a bit, but not as much as I’d planned to).
I’m wondering if anyone else has run into this, and if there are any tricks to keep it from bunching!
Here’s a pic to show what I mean:

I would wear some lycra/spandex shorts under the dress so that it smooths everything out and it is more slippery so the dress doesn’t get caught like it would on regular lace or cotton underwear.
The alterations they suggested at the hips should let the dress fall better. Sometimes they also suggest adding some boning to the inside of the corset to help it stay flat. If letting the dress out doesn’t work I would suggest adding some boning.

Ooo boning is a great idea, thanks! If it still falls awkwardly on my next fitting I’ll definitely ask about it 🙂

It does look too tight Because there is bunching but it also appears to be pulling the dress down and making it sit a bit low. Both the neckline and the belt need to be an inch higher IMO. letting the dress out by your hips will help with this.
