    I would think it’s probably just because the sample has been hanging around/tried on/etc. and just got kind of flat.  I think the one you have looks fine.

    I think once your dress is fitted properly, and its pressed and steamed it will look great, your dress is beautiful btw.

    I like the second pic better myself, I think the “poofiness” compliments the rest of the dress and your figure better.

    I voted actual – just a guess but the sample is probably “flattened” a bit on the bottom by being tried on and taken on and off the rack a hundred times.  I think the actual is what it’s intended to look like- and I like it better.  Maybe think about it a while before you decide what to do?  You could probably make it flatter by removing tulle from underneath and/or not wearing a crinoline.

    I agree with everybody else… the skirt is made to be puffy, and it also looks better on you when it’s puffy. So relax, everything is going on fine ;;)

    I like the second picture much better.  The first one has crazy pleats, which makes it look more like curtains.  It looks so pretty on you!

    The sample is always going to be a little different from the actual dress. The color and the way it lays will differ. I actually like the second pic way better. The first looks too flat to me.

    I think your actual dress looks better on you than the first one.  I think it shows off your figure much better than the one that lays flat…but that is just my opinion.

    You’re crazy.  🙂  Adorable but crazy, the dress is the same but just a tad poufier from time/wear.  You can probably try to ‘press’ it to be flatter.

    i like the actual best.  Is that a vineyard dress, by chance?

    I like the actual one, you will probably be happier once it is pressed as it will still be poofy but the pleats will be more pronounced.
