I don’t really understand how you feel adding a petticoat will make you look heavier? The fabric on the top of a petticoat is super thin around the waist, it is not going to add any bulk the way I see it. I am wearing a petticoat and I think it actually makes your waist look slimmer by creating more width for contrast at the bottom of the dress.

I say just take a deep breath and stop overanalyzing! I am sure your hard work to get in shape has paid off, and there is no way adding a crinoline will make you look heavier.

When I tried my dress on with a petticoat it did make a funny crease around my waist.  My seamstress is just sewing in the petticoat starting around the thighs so it eliminates the fabric around my waist.
