You could get away without having a slip,  but I think a slip would add the something you’re looking for. I would try it on with one, you can get them pretty cheap on ebay or amazon.

Ok I think I got it…the dress is to big…..I actually had this problem because the store ordered me an 8..went to show my cousin and tried the sample in the 8 they ordered and it was just to big, i landed up needing a 4(i ordered a 6 because 4 just fit) did you try the size below?where is the dress from?

If you just want it to flare out more at the bottom you could just get a crinoline to go under it.

I think it looks beautiful.  If the dress is currently too long (and it looks like it might be), the bottom will fall flat.  My fit and flare gown flares out a ton at the bottom, but it looked almost like a sheath gown before they pinned it to get hemmed.  I was thinking about adding extra crinoline, but I didn’t want it too poufy either.  She pinned it up to the appropriate length on my first fitting and the shape of the bottom of the dress changed dramatically.  If it still doesn’t flare out enough, you could add more crinoline.  Super easy fix.

A properly fitted dress makes the world of differences. It doesnt look right because it doesnt fit properly yet. 

wait until its been altered and then review your thoughts.

I see what you’re saying. I think this can easily be fixed with alterations & a slip.
