    I like it the way it is. I would leave it.

    I really like poofiness, lol, so yeah, I would. It’s gorgeous as is, though, so is there a way you could try on a crinoline or something with it to see how it would look poofed?

    i’m guessing the model is wearing crinoline. i would definitely add a little.

    I’m going to vote no.  If there wasn’t the bow in the back, I might’ve voted differently.  I feel like a “poof” would interrupt with the simplicity and beauty of the bow.  Hope this helps!

    @jo.lee: I am the opposite – I am an anti-pouffer. 😉 

    But I’d need to see what it looks like on you without anything added.  If it looks like it’s hanging flat, add it, but otherwise leave it be.

    Personally, I say no poof. I think that it would interrupt the elegant silhouette of the dress.

    Yea I believe she probably has a trumpet crinoline on in that pic, unless there is already crinoline in the dress. Mine came with a layer, but it didn’t look like it was on the model until I added a trumpet crinny -like this:

    Without seeing the dress on you, it’s hard to say. On the model, I would say the bottom of the skirt could use a little more filling out. But the dress could look totally different on you. I’d try it on with and without an extra crinoline and let your reflection in the mirror tell you what works.

    I bet that model is wearing a crinoline so I vote yes (at least for the ceremony/pictures)

    @LGenz:I think so too. I think she has a small one on so it isn’t too poofy but there is definitely some poof there. 🙂

    You should see if the salon you purchased your gown from will let you try it on with a crinoline. Then see which way you like it better.

    @NYCchickie: I’m sure the salon has a crinoline they can have you try it on with when it comes in. Make a decision from there.
