By theoretical analysis, we show that the usual procedure of simply projecting the dispersion-managed (DM) soliton profile onto the basis of an arbitrary number of Hermite-gaussian (HG) polynomials leads to relatively accurate ansatz functions, but does not correspond to the best representation of DM solitons. Based on the minimization of the soliton dressing, we present a simple procedure, which provides highly accurate representation of DM solitons on the basis of a few HG polynomials only.
