    I think a little more support up top usually helps define the waist. I’m not sure about the crinoline, I think that could go either way so I’d have to see it before I could decide.  Could you try one on with the dress?

    I think the dress might need a crinoline.  It looks a little deflated to me.  I think a bustier will help too.  One that fits you well will do great things for your waist and boobs.

    I have worn a body slimmer for my tummy before, but actually I think you look very good and don’t really need one.  It is not like you look pudgy at all in the belly region, and the gown doesn’t cling.  I think it looks very nice on you.

    I definitely think you should wear a crinoline, the dress does look a little deflated.  This will help to balance out the shape of the dress I think.  I also think you need a good bustier, or some shapewear for the girls too.  The one they gave you isn’t doing anything for you.  Go to a department store where they have all different kinds so that you can find the one that looks the best and does the most for you.

    Both – crinoline and bustier!

    I agree – definitely both. You have a great shape, you just need something to enhance it and more fullness in the skirt will accentuate the waist and a bustier will do that even more and give the girls some room to shine. It’s their day too! haha 🙂

    I don’t think the fit is bad but would agree, you could use a better bra of the push-up variety. I think a sash or broach to draw attention to your natural waist could help as well. Is the back lace up? If so, maybe it could just be tightened in different places to change the shape. Good luck!

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with the tummy – it looks more to me like the dress needs a better fit in the shoulders, which will perk things up. it also could use a good steam!
