@lee78:  Many samples are worn and the toole or other types of fabric can get weighted down with body oils, being stuffed in racks etc and new fabric can stand up and be stiffer.

Without a picture it is hard to tell if extra layers were added or not.

If it tool or another type of fabric?

I would also say that it probably is the “same” size as the one that you tried on, just that once dresses have been tried on a hundred times the tool/crinoline gets flattened, softened, more touchable. It should be very easy to just go to a local seamstress and have a few of the underneath layers removed, assuming that’s how the skirt is filled.

I’d talk with a seamstress and see if you can have some extra layers taken out.  It probably is the same one but just because it is brand new and hasn’t been tried on many times it appears larger/stiffer.
