The seamstress removed 1 layer but its still so full, and I don’t like the fullness. After bringing my dress home I started looking at the layers and it still has 3! I am so tempted to take one off, but I’m scared. Did anyone take any layers out?
Here is my dress:

I really don’t think it looks that full. I’m afraid if you try to take out any more layers the dress will just look flat, and start to form a v-shape in the front. Beautiful dress though

I love this dress the way it is. Do you have any pics of you in it? That might help.

I would leave it as it is.

I agree with the pp, leave it as is. I also think that if you take any more away, it will fall too flat and not lay right. I think it looks fine the way it is.

Tell the seamstress that you are not happy with the poof and then ask if she can remove it. Don’t try to do this yourself or you will damage the dress.
If your gut is telling you that something is not quite right, listen to it. Especially since you will have tons of pictures of yourself in it that will last forever.

Thanks! I might have to try the dress again all by myself and see how I feel.

this may not help… but.. i would try it…
why dont you put the dress on… have a friend go up under there and tie the one layer of tulle closest to your legss to your legs… yes you cant move but it will give you an idea of what it would look like if you lost another layer? know what i mean..strap it down… take some photos.. untie it..
no money spent, no damage done,, but you still get an idea!

you can put a layetr of tulle between your closed legs while wearing it and that will show what it would look like losnig 1 layer- keep in mind that if you lose a layer of tulle, you will probably need to shorten the dress a little (you will lose poof and therefore gain length)

I had all the crinoline removed from my dress. I was anti poof from the get go. Not that I don’t love it on other brides, I just wanted something more soft, less ridged. I was nervous but it came out geat IMO.
