Wear a poofy slip underneath.  Or ask your them to add more layers.

What you’re looking for is a crinoline or a very small hoop skirt. The hoop can support the weight of your dress layers. Look for something like an A-line with at least 3 hoops, but 4 hoops are always better.

I found a fantastic hoop for a halloween costume on e-bay. They’re made just fine. 🙂

Ask about more crinoline or a hoop skirt.

 

PS the dress looks great on you!

Did they tell you at the salon that your dress won’t be as full as you want it? Usually the floor model is really matted because of being on the rack.
Your dress when it comes it and fully steamed should be much fuller.

i’m almost positive the model is wearing a hoop skirt. go to the store where you bought your dress and ask to try it on with different hoops and crinolines. once you figure out what you like, look on ebay.

The dresses always look so much better on the real people than on the models! It’s crazy, every time!

 I also want my dress to look fuller so i bought a net crinoline from davids bridal. It still doesnt look as full as the model picture but it definitely makes a big difference.  I think that they stuff like 2 or 3 crinolines under the dress that the model wears just to show it off as best as possible
