Default this is bugging me

I had one of my customers come over yesterday to drop of a dress for me to match.
Her DD was wearing one of the bows (boutique bow) I made for her.
It was all floppy and sloppy looking, It looked perfect when I gave it to her (I know I always have to fluff Hannah's back up and re-spray them)
Am I doing something wrong?

Have you tried baking them to help them hold their shape?

Mine do the same thing, and it's not from lack of quality. It's just the style of the fold.

Paranoid, I once bought several boutique bows from different sellers to see if their bows did the same thing. They did.

You can get it just about anywhere. I think I saw it at Walmart. I haven't tried it yet, but I was going to.
