    My only experience with this personally is theater costumes, so I can tell you that hoop skirts LOOK amazing, but you’re right about it being awkward to stand/sit/dance in.  I think thinning out a crinoline is probably your best option, because it will reduce the sweating, but still give the skirt some poof.  Sorry I’m not much help!  🙁

    Have her play around with different option.  There are a couple different types (a-line, ballgown, etc) crinolines so maybe she just needs to find the right degree of fullness.  If she felt like the crinoline was going to be too puffy, a hoop skirt will probably be bigger.

    Whatever she does, she should decide before alterations.  The sales consultant is right–the crinoline (or lack of one) will definitely change the length of the dress.

    @MsBrooklynA: I remember it being sort of adjustable at the waist.  It’s been years, but as far as I remember, they’re pretty easy to walk around in, but you have to be careful sitting so you don’t pull a Britney.  LOL

    I am reviving this topic because I was concerned about the same thing!  I ended up going with a crinoline for my A-line dress.  It’s the David’s Bridal A Line crinoline Style 603.  I like how a hoop skirt would keep the material really away from my legs, however, I was worried about sitting down in it, and also, the garter part of the reception.  I’m going for my first fitting today with the crinoline, so I’ll let you all know how it goes 🙂

    I’m also debating the same thing. The woman who owns the salon I bought my dress from recommended sewing layers of crinoline onto the inside of the dress, but I am still concerned with the hot factor, so I am still considering a hoop skirt. Not sure though!
