@MrsF2b:  I’m not for my wedding dress just because the dress is like 50 pounds and had about 13 layers! lol 

But for prom years ago I had a satin pick up gown… I wore a hoop skirt with it… This is just my opinion, but I hated it. It’s literally metal. So you swoosh everywhere, and it’s hard to sit down. I would go with crinoline! 

 

Here is a link to a smiliar board though!

@MrsF2b:  I wore a dress to help my dress keep shape–it was 53bs, and only 2 layers!

@lolita39:  Holy moly! When did you go to prom? I’ve never seen a hoop skirt that wasn’t made with plastic!

@BrandNewBride:  You made me laugh so hard! It was like 2007? My mom ordered it for me… so there’s no telling where she got it from. It looked a lot like this 

But the rings weren’t plastic on the inside if I recall. They were a thin springy metal. I just hated it…

@MrsF2b:  I wore a hoop under my dresses. It was definitely easier to walk with them, especially in my big church dress.

 Here are some pics and also the link to our highlight video, so you can see the “movement” of the dresses. Hope that helps 😉

II wore a hoop to keep the shape and keep cool at my outdoor August wedding. Best decision ever.

you just sway and it’s built in air conditioning! (I found a cotton one with adjustable hoops and at my 1st fitting we removed 2 hoops at least and may go with a 3rd. I want poof without sweat .. it IS southwest Louisiana afterall!

I’m so glad I used a hoop, kept the dress off my legs so I didn’t trip as much and it was much cooler.

I wore a three ring hoop I got for $15.00 off of ebay. It was light weight and the hoops are very bendable and don’t pop up when you sit down or make it difficult to get through doors or anything. I loved it. The dress had great shape and I was cool and comfortable all night.

i had hoop in my dress and it was the best thing- no material getting tangled up in my legs, my dress kept its shape, and it kept me cool. i recommend it to every bride i know.

a lot of people envision a dress with a hoop to be a huge scarlett o’hara type of thing, but it doesn’t have to be like that. my dress had a single hoop and we were able to adjust it to the size i was comfortable with.

I wore a hoop AND a crinoline — I took the hoop off for the reception. It looked fantastic and was very cool and swishy, but I just didn’t want it on for dancing. So since I already had the crinoline on as well, I just slipped out of the hoop and was ready to go! Definitely recommend the hoop at least for photos and ceremony if you’ve got a big dress — they make SUCH a difference. My dress looked like a deflated balloon without it, even with the poofy crinoline!

I was going to wear crinoline until my seamstress begged me to try a hoop first – and once I gave in, I was in love.  My wedding was outside in August and I think I was cooler than the rest of my bridal party in their short dresses.  Lol.  Mine had 2 hoops, they were plastic and adjustable so I didn’t have it too big, just enough to give a little poof and keep the fabric off my legs.  It was so lightweight and comfortable, didn’t bother me one bit!

I prefered the shape with a hoop but didnt like the wibble wobble effect that reminded me of a toy i had when i was younger! i had images of bending over or photos on beach and it bobbing and it looks rather odd when ur dancing too. (not so much with a line or princess dresses) but i personaly thing from a mermaid/ fishtail the wibble wobble looks weird! so i went with a fish tail peticoat crinoline. has 3 layers of tulle. Unfortunatley it doesnt really hols it away from your legs so i may well be warm at it is an abroad wedding. But at least i wont spend the day looking like a wobble toy!x
