You need to let the hips out slightly. It looks like because its so tight on your hips its pushing up into the waist, causing the crinkles.

Boning will keep the waist from bunching, but it will not help at your hips. So to me that will be doubly uncomfortable lol. Shapewear wont stop it from bunching.

You also have lots of time for alterations, basically a full month, and that gives you a week wiggle room. Id take the hips out and see how it looks.

I wouldn’t add boning… It will add more bulk and you may even be able to see where it starts/stops. I would actually try some spanx, and try to debloat between now and your next fitting… Then see if it needs to be taken out a bit.

caribcurls :  The bunching around the waist is because you have a short torso (I experienced this as well). You need to have your seamstress shorten the bodice of the dress to fit the length of your torso, and that will eliminate the bunching. Boning won’t do this – but it will help to add structure to the dress so it supports itself better
