    It already looks like a ball gown to me…

    I agree, I think this is a ball gown 🙂 It has a drop waist, so the skirt isn’t as full off the hips.

    I would try it on with one first to see if you like the look. There are many different fullnesses of petticoats/crinolines. I am wearing a gown with the fullest possible crinoline because that is the look that I like. With yours, I probably would go with one of the medium fullness ones, if at all.

    Yeah you need to try the gown on with different types of petticoats to see if you like it bigger or not

    It is already a ball gown. If you want it bigger try adding a peticoat underneath but keep in mind that as you mentioned you are plus size, if you add too much skirt it will actually make YOU look bigger and I would hate for that to happen on your wedding day. I have had to be very careful as to what complimented my body best and staying away from really big skirts is number one. IMO
