I love my dress, but I have noticed how flat the skirt sits. It just seems out of wack how blinged the bodice is to the plain skirt; but on the flip side I do see the benifit of not too much drama.
Here is a pic of myself in my dress, this is the sample which is about two sizes too big in the bust so the pic is not the most flattering.
What do you think? Am I being fussy? Is it just because I need to wear a hoop underneath?
These are a few of my insperation pics to what I would like the skirt portion to look like.
I love the ruffles and pick ups. The textures are amazing! When we went shopping I actually wanted a simple dress with teaxture rather than bling – funny how it works out.
If I were to go ahead with alterations I would not go all extreame, maybe just a few pickups and a fuller skirt.

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!
