    I don’t think the issue is the wrinkles, I think the issue is that it doesn’t fit you properly. If it fit, you wouldn’t have the wrinkles, I think. It looks baggy in the bust and waist. It’s the excess fabric causing this.

    @MaasML20:  I agree with @crayfish:  I also think it’s too big and that the wrinkles would go away if it was tighter πŸ™‚

    I agree it hasn’t been properly fitted.

    Agree.  That’s a fitting issue, not wrinkles.

    Definitely looks like a fitting problem.  Are alterations still possible?

    I call bullsh!t on their “bias cut” excuse. Bias cut means the fabric is cut on the diagonal, which allows it to flow very smoothly. It shouldn’t be wrinkling like that.

    One thought: I don’t know how well bias cut is suited to strapless gowns. It may work better for something with a spaghetti strap, where the weight of the fabric can be supported at a few points (where the straps attach) rather than all around the dress. I don’t know if adding a strap is an option for you at this point? It may make a difference, it may not.

    Looks a little big on you. I suggest eating pizza for the next 3 weeks.

    I agree with the PPs, it looks to big for you.

    It just looks a bit big.  Extra cheese and french fries for you!  πŸ™‚

    Mmmm I’m going to agree with pps about pizza, cheese, and fries haha. But yeah, my first thought was, “It’s not wrinkly, it just doesn’t fit.” The bodice needs to be taken in in the bust and waist at least.
