I used a petticoat with my dress that did not have hoops. I never cared for the idea of them. I didn’t have an issue not having hoops. I actually flipped the petticoat upside down, hung it on a hanger and put it in the shower to let it expand/ get all the wrinkles out.

I would recommend no hoop because the rings can sometimes be seen under tulle skirts.  Opt for a crinoline with lots of layers.  UnderCover is a great petticoat brand that you can get from a bridal shop – runs about $90-$100.  But you DO need a slip under that or it will buckle and won’t give you that GORGEOUS ballgown shape!
