I think that would look SO pretty!

Oh yes, that would be lovely!  The way the dress fits now, it makes you look a little top-heavy.  Adding a fuller skirt would make such a difference.  And maybe this is just my modesty, but you should consider adding modesty panels to the sheer lace parts on the bodice.  It really distracts the eye.

I definitely agree with above, on all points. So pretty though. 🙂

You’ve got great curves woman!!  I love your dress.  I think the shape change you want to make is a beautful idea, but I’m not sure about adding tulle on the outside… would it be possible to alter the skirt to flare without getting rid of the beautiful lace details already there?  I have no alterations knowledge, but would there be a way to flare it with tulle and cover the flare with the original material?  (If that’s what you’re already thinking, sorry for being dense)

I love your dress as it is, but a little mermaid petticoat might help it. I wouldn’t add anything to the outside as it’s just too gorgeous!

@DanaandCleidson:  You can add a crinoline and then take some of the layers (of the crinoline) off, so that it is the right amount of poofyness. If it ends up being just a little bit it will really probably not show as much as the one you tried on with the dress. And I know you said something about modesty panels, but I would go ahead and have  the whole dress lined (I wasn’t really looking, but I can see your underwear through the not lacy parts too). And that way you won’t have some parts lined and other parts not. And the dress is pretty sexy already without the sheer parts.

ETA: I love your dress btw!
