    I would try on a skirt with it first and then go from there.. you might get the right amount of oomfph you’re looking for.

    I’d try on a mermaid crinoline first, and see if the volume alone will be good enough. Alterations should be doable but might be costly.

    I’d definitely try a crinoline first and see what that makes of it.

    I think a crinoline, and proper alterations, will work wonders. I think the reason why it’s looking a bit flat is because the dress is way too loose in the waist for you – once it’s nipped in, you’ll see a more exaggerated hourglass shape and the skirt will seem more full. But yes, by all means add a crinoline for more volume – or the seamstress can even just add extra layers of stiffer tulle underneath. I wouldn’t change the fabric or design of the skirt though, like the photos you posted – not sure if that’s what you meant!
