    @Bri1o:  Add it girl. Your dress will look awesome with more volume. Looks great as is too but I like the drama of the fuller bottom.

    @Bri1o:  I will be adding one to my fit and flare dress too.  My seamstress also told me that as it lifts the dress away from your legs it will also keep you cooler.  That’s key for me with a satin dress in August!

    @Bri1o:  I did that with my fit n flare.

    I posted a picture of the model and how it looks without the crinoline. And then I posted the picture of me in the dress with the added layers of crinoline. (I know I am a lot more curvy than the model but the sample I tried on of my dress was like yours-I wanted the extra poof)

    I think you should add the crinoline if you want that extra poof but not too much.

    @Bri1o:  LoL…thank you! you are not the first person to say that…what is funny is I never thought I would buy a dress like the one I got especially if I had seen this model in it but the woman at the store said” just try it!!!” And whaddya know, i fell in love with it

    But what I would sugggest is add just one later, see how it looks with the one layer, and if it needs more, then add a second. Thats what I did. I didn’t want to put too much in, I wanted to see how it looked with the first layer, and then decide if I want more.

    @Bri1o:  i actually got mine from a chinese shop on ebay. I figured it’s one of the things that no one will be able to tell if it’s the absolute highest quality. I spent $8 on mine.

    I purchased this one & a mermaid one on ebay. I am selling this one tho because Ican use the mermaid with both of my dresses. Personally my expierence is that dress shops can charge around $60-$70. I am selling this one for $20 plus shipping if you are interested.

    Add crinolin.  The dress without crinolin is pretty as well but I think adding crinolin will give it an extra WOW factor and be GORGEOUS.
