Petticoat Question! -Answered! Thank you!-

I just bought and received (my first!) petticoat, online. The part that lends poof is made of a synthetic  netting-type material, and underneath there's a satin-y  slip. It's gorgeous and fits very well... The only problem is that it's FAR poofier than I originally thought when looking at the pictures- it stands out about 90 degrees around my waist all around (whereas in the pictures it looked like it had a regular cupcake shape). Is this normal for a new petticoat, and if so, will it "calm down" with time? The petticoat also appears to be all crinkled up (probably from being shipped), but I'm afraid of ripping it by stretching the wrinkles out. Is there any safe way to do this?

I'd very much appreciate any help or advice the more experienced lolitas could lend me!

Thank you!
