Did you try a hoop or crinoline? Hoop is going to hold it out white crinoline may flatten a little.

@Justdarkblue:  First of all, you’re standing on an elevated platform, so the bottom of your gown isn’t touching the floor, and hers is.  Second, remember that she isn’t just a model who put on a dress and just stood there.  Someone art directed this photo shoot, and it’s very likely that someone, or, more likely, several someones, spent a lot of time positioning this model and the skirt of this dress to look exactly as it does.

When you tried the hoop skirt, how many hoops were in it? If it was just one at the bottom, then try a drop waisted hoop skirt with 3 or 4 hoops and some extra crinoline, then it might not dent.

@Justdarkblue:  I would get a mermaid slip. I had a dropped waist ball gown and it was just enough to give me the volume I wanted.
