    are you wondering about cups/corset for shape reasons? support reasons? you look great in your dress, but if you feel unsupported up top, get some cups sewn in and be done with it.

    as for the crinoline, i wouldn’t go overboard. your dress is so soft and flowly on the bottom — i think if you add too much volume on bottom, the beautiful movement of the fabric will be lost. a little added layer might fill the bottom out nicely and give you that more ‘mermaidy’ shape, but definitely don’t overdo it. can you go to the salon and try a few samples to see & compare?

    those are my two cents. you’ll look great, whatever you choose. beautiful girl, beautiful dress!

    Are you wearing anything with it in the picture? Because I think the top looks just fine the way it is. I would say to add crinoline because the bottom of the front does fall flat.

    Depends on the look you’re going for. I am wearing a dress with a corset back, and I am going to wear both a corset bra and a modesty piece. Your dress looks lovely the way it is, I guess it just depends on how you want the back to look.

    In terms of the bra, do you feel supported enough? If you were a bra, you’ll need to the modesty piece. So you could have cups sewn in if you feel like you need them.

    There are several varieties of crinoline. Just a get a more minimal one. I think a little extra poof at the bottom would look great!

    And just so you know, you look absolutely stunning in your dress. 🙂

    I would just have cups added to the to, you look great in the dress and your back looks amazing in it.  You can also have the crenoline (sp?) added to the bottom that way you would not have to dead with the extra fabric added beween your waist and knees.  The dress is amazing btw.

    You look stunning. I think it looks great the way it is, you dont need to change a thing.  I think crinoline might take away from how beautiful and “dreamy” your dress is.

    I think you look amazing!  You definitely rock that dress.  I was surprised when you were asking if you should change a few things b/c I thought it looked perfect as is.

    I love your dress and think you look fabulous.  Here are my thoughts:

    Cups – only if you feel uncomfortable and need support because it looks great as is.

    Back Panel/Modesty panel – I prefer when there is one just because I think it makes for a cleaner, more sophisticated look.

    Crinoline – Depends on the look your going for.  If you want that romantic flowy look, then no, if you want a more full look then yes.  Just remember that when you walk the dress will have a tendency to flow between your knees/shins so if you don’t want that then I’d go with a crinoline. 

    I think you look gorgeous in your dress!
