I am wanting to possibly remove the “poof” from my dress. I am having a hrad time deciding and was wondering if anyone had any before and after pics of their dresses with the tulle or layers removed….
I originaly was going to wear a sean patrick mermaid cut (which I still have) pictured below..but I recently found a beautiful full dress in a dusty rose…but Im thinking the poof NEEDS too go….

I think the first dress is stunning 🙂
Have you tried on the dusty rose?

Yes i have tried on both! I never thought I would go for a poofy dress but the dusty rose is so pretty.. i have actually bought both..just trying to decide on the poofy..and on what dress to wear or when to switch dresses

I like the first one better. I’m not sue if the fabric would lay right if you removed the poof on the second one.

I really like the first one…but I’m partial to lace 🙂 what about the second one did you like better than the first?

I have no advice about the poof, but I really, really like the first dress better.

Do you have pictures of yourself in both dresses? I know this isn’t what you asked, but I also much prefer the first dress based on the model pictures. I also agree with a previous poster that the second dress might not look right without the poof.

I think both dresses are beautiful, and bridal in their own right
I can show you this picture of my dress, first one is the designer pic which has the skirt quite full
And this pic is of me in the sample without any crinoline undeneath. For the day I will be putting a small crionline underneath it, but it still won’t be as full as the designer pick.
Could you take your dress to a bridal salon and experiment with different sized crinolines or even hoop skirts underneath it to see what look you prefer??

I wouldn’t remove the poof, the cut and shape of your dress all depend on the poof, ballgown and a-line dresses just look weird without it. I tried on dresses that didn’t have the tulle layers built in and they just sit there without any shape. I love the San Patrick!

I de-poofed! Here is the sample dress in the store… ignore the weird stance
Here is my dress–we took out a layer of stiff tulle that was attached basically right under the butt, and left the piece that starts at mid-calf.
I loved that it made my dress lighter, more flowy, and easier to manuver/sit down in.
While I have these up… does anyone else see how the beading is not the same in the sample vs my dress? The bottom is a more delicate curve in the sample and just a blocky V in mine… grrrrrrr

Thanks ladies!! To answer a few questions..I really liked the color of the second dress! I do not have a picture of myself in the dusty rose, but I do have my bridal shots i already took in the Sean Patrick.
What do you all think of switching dresses, for reception time?? Im thinking ceremony/cocktail/dinner in the Sean Patrick and Reception dancing in the Dusty ROse?????? The Sean Patrick is very hard to move in…
Please excuse my little bump i was 4months pregnant during these lol
