all skirts ride up a bit when sitting down even full ballgowns – its the nature of the skirt. when you add that much fullness at the bottom, thats whats gonna happen. if it really bothers you (remember at most weddings you will only be seated at a table with a LONG table cloth, so who will see waht your skirt looks like when seated?) you could either get a slip that only has fullness on the back of it, so it gives a “flare” look but when you sit, the crinoline isnt poofing out as much???

Honestly, I think you can do better on a dress – it doesn’t even look like a trumpet without the crinoline and the legnth is just unacceptable.  Honestly, I don’t think the “advisor” at DB is doing a good job and I encourage you to keep looking.  You have a gorgeous figure and there are many other (affordable) dresses with which you will not have this problem.  Good luck!

The dress does look too short for you. And in alterations with a trumpet gown, you can take it in more around your waist, hips and thighs and actually put in more taffetta (or whatever) underneath to poof it out more. That gives it more shape. My gown is trumpet too 🙂

I agree with LittleSpitfire that it isn’t really a trumpet gown.  It is a gorgeous gown though.  I would order the extra length and then find the perfect slip you want on your own.  I’m sure there are tons of options out there.  What if you did a gold colored slip that looked cute popping out at the bottom when you sit?

I agree – you can find a better dress. It is not a true trumpet and that length is not acceptable.

I agree with the previous opinions, it’s not a trumpet gown.  I can see how it’s more fitted then goes out a bit, but I think it’s more of a “fit and flare”…and it’s way too short for you in the front.  I’m sure you can have it altered to be more of a true trumpet gown, taking it in more through the hips and legs.  And I wouldn’t worry about the gown riding up when you sit…that seems to be pretty universal.  The lace is gorgeous, I love the neckline.  I think it looks like a wedding dress…it’s probably because it’s all lace and maybe that’s really not what you were looking for?

I have an A-line dress and it doesn’t ride up when I’m just standing there – actually not really even when I sit.  If you’re having such doubts, I really would try on some other dresses with different fits…if the riding up is bothering you already, imagine how it will be for your wedding day!

One other thought if you’re certain that this dress is “the one” – maybe check to see if they can add tulle to the dress itself to give you the shape you’re looking for without the added “heft” of a slip? Not sure if it’s possible, but it might be worth asking an alterations specialist if it’s out of the question.

It’s totally a fit and flare and it’s too short. 

 

But yes, dresses do ride up.  Nature of the dress.

that is more of an A-Line dress-I think the only thing that truly makes it a trumpet is the crinoline.  and the length is definitely unacceptable, it needs at least anohter 4-5 inches.  The dress will ride up when sitting, but not that much
