Unhappy 2 1/4 Cheer Bow Help

I am making bows for our dance team in the cheer bow style but they would prefer 2 1/4" ribbon. These are layered bows.

Having trouble getting the loops and tails more vertical. They want to be more horizontal (or side to side vs up and down).

Is this a problem because of the ribbon width?

Using 2 1/4" Grosgrain with mystique fabric. 28" ribbon length with a 4 to 5 inch loop length, accordian fold and a zip tie to hold the center.

Wondering if I need to somehow tack the the two loops together with thread near the center to pull them closer together.

Is this a common problem with using this size ribbon or am I doing something wrong?
