Recently I bought a full Wa-Lolita Outfit from Fan+Friend. I received it and all is well for the most part. The skirt does not accommodate a large petticoat and is a little too short. I also have narrower shoulders than the dress would imply, but the fabric is thick and the dress is well made.
That said, I am having an issue with the obi keeping its shape. I believe there is not enough interfacing on the obi, and I am afraid to open it up and try to insert any. I am not looking for advise on how to do so. I'm not quite sure how it is put together and cannot wear the dress without the obi, so I am unwilling to take it apart.
It is quite the problem though because the obi sags beneath my bust. I have considered wrapping or inserting cardstock between the obi and the dress and I was just wondering if any of you have tips on how to keep your clothing looking fresh, pressed, and stiff all day.
I am also looking for a very small somewhat short petticoat to buy. I am hoping it might be cheap as well, because I will probably only wear it with this dress.
My dress is in a bright red and teal color scheme. If anyone has suggestions for new obis in these colors or white, I would be happy to buy a new one.
Please be aware that the bow on the back hangs off a strap tied around the obi. The bow is quite heavy.

Updates will come as I try new methods.
I have received all the help necessary. Thank you all.
