Hello, this is a problem
really annoying, I make a skirt in mind Dior (with big buckets rather rigid)
Here is a link to a fairly representative picture -couture/image/folle-robe-dior-422886.jpg

The question is: How to get the stiffness of the cups. is it a whale slipped into the hem? Ultra thick interlining? Something else perhaps?

Thanks in advance

In the case of your model the fabric is starch
Good luck

actually, I also think it very starched (even formed a sort of tube, but right now I'm sure of nothing!). By
cons you might have a similar effect by using:
_a shape memory fabrics (with wire microscopic). Attention at the finish: there must be a bias at all seams.
_I'll put one to two whales in the hem (of a hem wide as your picture: a top, a bottom), or even wire that could work in the sense that we want.
hem-always in that you can insert a fabric corsage (or bra) on which you ask the whales. you can also starch all for getting in shape.

Well, I'd do some research before you start, but if do not have the same result as in the photo, I think you might approach it.

Good luck!

PS: the couturiers have their little secrets, and generally keep to themselves.
In this case, I confess I know how Galliano process !
