I have tried this dress on several times (it’s the one I’ll probably get), and initially, I was also trying to make it more of an A-line shape and less of a trumpet.  They put a crinoline/slip thing under it for me at the salon, and as it turns out… I didn’t like it as much!  Something about all that lace and beading… it needs to sway and move a little.  That’s what makes this dress so pretty!  (Wanna hear something funny?  Now I’ve decided that if I get this dress, I’m going to have them make it even slimmer fitting, more of a mermaid shape.  They clipped it nice and snug on me at one bridal salon I went to, and I loved it! lol, go figure)  Anyway, I too think that you made the right decision to order it as is.  I would suggest maybe trying a trumpet crinoline under it to give it a little more fullness towards the bottom and see if you like that shape.

Hi there!! 

We are dress twins!  On the model I think it has a lot more crinoline – mine is not that poofy.  But I had the exact same question to my alteration lady – I thought I’d want it more ‘puffy’ so they stuck more crinoline under the dress to see if I liked it, and it looked better the way it originally was.  I think its beautiful as-is.  🙂
