Yep, very true! I am set on buying extra thick boning and see how that works out. But tule is a good one if I want more poofiness. Thank you very much!

Dallandra: I used Laughing Moon's Bustle #112, but I think TV newest bustle (TV 163) is their largest. You need to think not only about, ahem, enlarging your posterior, but also about supporting these very heavy skirts. You can add a few layers of tulle on the inside of the skirt itself to help create extra poofiness.

Ooooh gorgeous! You say that pattern TV101 or TV108 can be worn under it. Which one would give the best volume/biggest poof (don't know how to describe it except for how to make the skirt look at it's largest)?
