eecuadrado:  hmm, I think it’s not just the slip, she’s probably also clipped in differently in the back, since her dress has more of a fit and flare silhouette vs A-line.

eecuadrado:  that’s my dress too! I love everything about it!

I think the shape of the dress is partly due to the underskirt, and partly due to how it is clipped/tied/maybe even body type. In my pictures of me in the dress, the poofiness/shape is sort of a cross between your picture and the girl in the first picture you posted. 

I think it’s such a fabulous dress, and it is flattering on everyone I’ve seen wearing it (looked at a lot of pictures!).

eecuadrado:  Go back to DB and ask to try the dress on with a slip. Then you can decide if you like it or not before buying it. Also post a few pictures 🙂

eecuadrado:  sent you a PM for the pic. I did try the dress on with an underskirt. I didn’t buy one though, because I want to have a colored one. I’ll probably make it myself.

I would leave the dress as it is. No slip. I think the A-line shape is very flattering.

eecuadrado:  I would just use their sample. That way you don’t risk getting your dress dirty or anything.

cranraspberry:  +1 to that: the first looks like a f&f mermaidy dress, the 2nd is definitely more a-line
