@sunsetchristy:  I am also wearing an A-line dress that I’d like to have full, but not super ball gown. My dress is WG3196 from David’s Bridal.  I’ve been looking on here for posts about what to wear under it and I can’t really find an answer, so I think I’m just going to go in to the bridal salon and try my dress on with the different underskirts and see which one looks the best.

I’m going to go with either a medium-full petticoat or a ball gown petticoat because of what you said about standing next to someone in pictures.

Here is a pic of my wearing my A-line with a fit & flare petticoat.  It’s a nice shape, but I do want to see it with the fuller petticoats which is why I’m just going to go in and try it on with them.

Also wondering the same. I know crinoline would look more natural, but having 20 layers of tulle squashed around your ankles under a silk dress seems like it would get HOT.

Yes I wore a hoop under my a-line. It was adjustable,  I had it on the medium fullness.

I had a ballgown but put a medium full slip under.. I got married in ny in nov.. And it made me hot. Be careful what you put under there and try diff things at salon. I’ll show you my volume.

Yes it was stacked with crinoline. While I was in planning stages I asked about hoop or petticoat. Many said hoop keeps heat off legs but at my bridal salon, for my dress they recommended the slip as they called it.. Juember member when u try them on to sit etc. trust me everything feels okay for the 30 min when u try something on but moving all day in something is another 🙂 thank goodness my dress was light silk! Good luck!
