ebowers23:  Empire waists are supposed to just flow down…I don’t know if you’ll find a skirt that would sit right under an empire but I’m certainly not an expert! I had a seamstress custom fit a skirt under my dress as it needed a bit more body (1930s but without the original under garment). Maybe you could look into that if you have no joy? 

I must say I’m a little concerned that this dress still won’t feel right to you…maybe three changes and still imperfect? Perhaps decide what you like about the empire waist and try some more dresses on with that highlight in mind? I may be wrong of course, but you see a lot of ‘dress regret’ on these boards which always makes me a little sad! Good luck.

That’s my dress too! I’m feeling the same way. I’d like more fullnes.  I tried it on with an a line slip but it didn’t fit right. I’m searching for empire waist slips but I havent had any luck so far.

My dress is also an empire waist. Paired it with a fit and flare slip and it gave it the slightest bit of poof it needed without being a ball gown! It was perfect.
