Default Funky loopy bow question

I've made quite a few of these bows...but I find they don't look super full unless I use tons of ribbon. My question is how many ribbons (those that have the instructions know what I'm talking about) do you use to make the bows full? They don't look bad at all with maraboa, but without it they look a little limp and thin

I do mine this way:

and then snip to make spikes. I use 6-7 lengths of ribbon and then tie in korker ribbon, tulle, marabou, fun fur, etc. HTH!
