I had a similar issue with my mermaidish dress.  I wanted the little fishtail train at the back to flare out, but didnt want a ton of volume in the front, so I bought a standard mermaid crinoline, and took long triangular slices out of the tulle in the front.  This reduced the volume in the front, and kept it all in the back.  If you’re afraid of DIYing it, I’d ask your seamstress to make you a custom slip with more tulle in the back, or sew the tulle right into the dress where you want it.

I wish I had something helpful to say, but I just wanted to tell you how gorgeous your dress is! The lace detail is incredible!

My dress needed a little more poof in the front and not all the way around too. My seamstress just added in more tulle to the front and some things to create structure so my dress wouldn’t become concave as I walked, if that makes sense…

@IvorySwan:  That was an image I pulled off ebay form a place in Hong Kong.  There are a few different places on ebay that offer the same sort of shape, most of them seem to come from Asia.  I just put Crinoline into ebay and scrolled through the results until I came across the shape I thought most suitable.

I think some sites that brides use to order the china wedding dresses usually offer petticoat/crinoline sections as well.  So they could be a good palce to start if you don’t want to go through ebay.
