The art of de-boning

I bought this Candies dress at Kohl's quite awhile ago, but have only worn it a couple of times. I love the print and the fit and the pleating, but there was one small problem. The boning in the bodice. For some reason, the bust had been shaped to look almost pointed--not flattering on anyone. I guess I didn't notice in the fitting room because I so loved everything else about it, but once it came home with me the minor detail started to seem major. Today, I decided to finally do something about it. So how did I solve the problem? By snipping a few threads and pulling out two pieces of shaped plastic. Yep, it took me about a year to figure that one out. But it looks much better now.
