Ohhhh honey it is EXQUISITE you do not looked swallowed at all, and the puff factor will be PERFECT in a smaller size. The blush looks awesome, but I think ivory will be just gorgeous too. As another curvey 5’3″ lady who knows the shopping struggle, you are rocking the HELL out of it. Congrats on finding the dress!

I actually think you look better in the (unaltered) dress than the model! Seriously.

The dress looks beautiful! You can easily remove crinoline layers, the more you remove the less full it will be but keeping one layer may be enough for you and personally I like a more natural flowy skirt anyway. You can sort of get an idea of it just by having someone grab the crinoline layers and bundle them out of the way as best they can. Hemming to your height will also help a lot with the swallowed feeling, getting my dress the right length actually made way more of a different than I thought to the look and feel. You could also try on hoop skirts if you want a big skirt without all the fabric tangling around your legs.

You look amazing in that drss! I’m sure you will feel more comfortable in it once you’re wearing the right size and you’ve had the alterations done.

You should be able to remove a layer of crinoline no problem, but I recommend just taking a deep breath and waiting to see how it looks in your size. You may still want to change things up, or maybe you’ll fal in love all over again!

You look amazing!!! It is a perfect dress for your shape. I don’t think you need to remove any of the layers.

I removed a layer of stiff tulle crin from my dress and it’s soo much nicer now. I wanted it to be floaty not poufy. Lol. I think it would be fine for you, and love the dress.
