I had the same issue. The sample of my dress was a nice a-line and my actual dress was a very full a-line and bordered ballgown territory. I had my seamstress remove a layer of crinline (the tulle underneath the dress) and it helped.

@abigailelizabeth919:  samples flatten out and slightly change color depending on how long they are sitting around. Maybe it can be steamed out?

@babypearls:  Agree!  


A brand new dress hasn’t been touched or tried on many times so the fullness may be what the designer intended for the style.  Your dress is gorgeous, though!!!  🙂

@abigailelizabeth919:  yes, what she is saying makes complete sense. when you try on a sample gown, its been tried on so many times and it looses its “fluff”

If you don’t want it to be fluffy, they can definitely remove a layer or two of whats beneath the dress (whether its crinoline or tulle, it can be done)

YOu look beautiful!!
