I think poofing it out can make you look proportionately smaller. But A-lines are very universally flattering. Any way you could try it both ways and see which you like better?

I think A line is usually more slimming, but maybe I’m crazy.  Plus I wore and a-line.  When you go for a fitting try on and crinoline with it and take photos to see which way looks better.

The bigger the skirt, the smaller your waist is going to look.  However, when I tried on ballgown dresses, it reminded me of the poofy dress I wore to prom.  The most flattering dress shape I tried was a drop-waist A-line dress.  I don’t think you can alter your dress now to look like that, so I would probably go poofier.

Ball gowns add the most waist definition in my experience trying on dresses, while A-lines seem to give the slimmest line all over.
