What type of crinoline are you using if any??
I already have a regular crinoline but I want my dress to be more fitted in the hip and butt area and the crinoline gets in the way of that. I’m not sure if a mermaid crinoline would work because it looks like the ruffles start too low.

I had a “slim” A-line which I think is the same way…but my dress had the crinoline built in.

Ask your seamstress if she can add tulle to the existing lining. That way, the extra fluff can start at whatever point you like. I had a slim a-line and considered doing this. Ultimately, I decided that the crinoline built into my dress was enough poof for me, but my seamstress was totally onboard with adding several layers of tulle if I wanted it.

I also have a slim A-line, fitted A-line, whatever it’s called. I’ll be getting it altered to also be more fited through the hips and butt but it has built in crinoline. I’m not using any more other than a normal slip underneath. I had tried it on with additional crinoline but it took away from the fitted look. I would go without anything if it’s already built in, or maybe try the trumpet gown crinoline if you want extra pouf at the bottom!

Thanks ladies! My dress does already have a built in crinoline but I may want a little more poof. I think I will see what the seamtress can do about adding more tulle if necessary.

My dress is a modified a line and I am having trouble finding the right slip also. I would like to add a bit more shape to the dress but a fit and flare petticoat creates a very obvious bottom only poof and the a line is too bulky for the hip area of my dress :/
