My daughter is the flower girl and we got her a David’s Bridal H8052. We are going for our alterations appointment tomorrow and I just realized that I don’t even know if this dress needs a little slip/crinoline or not. Here is a picture
I really need to know if it needs a slip. Has anyone used this dress for their flower girl? If it does need a slip do you know somewhere besides David’s Bridal where I can get one? Like Dillards, JCPenney, etc?

The lady at my Davids said ALL dresses need a slip of some sort (now I don’t know about little girls tho). She said that even if you don’t want a crinoline to get some cheap slip to wear under the dress in order to prevent it from bunching between your legs while walking…something that you can’t really tell happens from just walking around the store. It would also prevent the dress from itching.
If you really wanted a slip you could just get a cheap on at like Kohls, Target, JCPenny’s or something. There is no need to get one from David’s and I don’t think a real need for a little crinoline (it prob already has some structure built in).

Have her stand in front of a lamp. If you can see the outline of her body, it needs a slip.
Otherwise you are risking the same look in the photographs.

Okay, so it is not absolutely necessary for fullness? or for alterations? It is not see through at all and I can always get a small slip later to help with walking in it, I just didn’t know if it was supposed to have it for the look, although the girl in the picture doesn’t look like she is wearing crinoline.

Does anyone have any pictures of this dress if they used it? If you did use it did you use crinoline?

Do you by chance still have this flower girl dress with the Apple red trim? I am looking for it in size 2T & 6/8. If so – are you interested in selling or renting it?
