I understand and have had a similar issue. Starching/baking helps because then the bottom bow doesn't fold in on your other layers. You could try a basic boutique bow on the bottom instead of a twisted bow, they lay a little flatter. Also, this tends to happen to me when I don't have my layers sized quite right, too big on the bottom and too small on top. Use some ribbon you don't love and just practice a bunch, everybody ends up with their own working technique.
