It looks like there is too much fabric in that area. Perhaps it should be sitting higher on your hips – the widest part of your body?

misschickpea said.  It is pulling and puckering because it is too tight in that area.  I would take it to another seamstress to see if they can let it out just a smidge.

What are you wearing under it? Shapewear might help with that.

simonebride15:  my dress did this, due to my hips. The gal that did my alertations did her best to smooth it.

Here is when I tried it on at the store, and then on my wedding day.

Not only did you look wonderful  on your wedding day  , but I think your pics are a perfect example of how a dress, unaltered  with  the wearer not ‘weddinged up’ as to hair and veil and flowers etc, does not look like the final thing. All those yet- to -wed bees who think  their FI  doesn’t like  their  dress, or even has  seen it inadvertantly should take careful heed of this! 

It not that you didn’t  look good in  your unaltered dress – my guess is you look pretty good in most things- it’s  just that it’s not The Look.

elderbee:  Ah, thank you! I totally understand what you mean though. The dress I tried on was in the size that I got, so all I needed was the hips to be brought out some since they were tight when I got my dress actually arrived. I also know that I’m turned in the wedding day pic, so here is one straight on taken from my officiant:

Still a little smoother than when I originally tried on the dress, and got my purchased dress. Alterations can do wonders!! And, it’s amazing what everything looks like together when you’re all “jacked up” in your wedding look.
