Hi there, if you mean a petticoat, the correct way to store it is in the original packaging and folded. The layers of net will easily ‘poof’ out on the day to create extra volume or you can just take it out and hang it the night before. The reason why it’s supposed to be kept flat is because if theres a hoop in it and its hung for long periods of time the hoop with eventually flatten and you’ll lose the lovely round shape.

ps – I used to run a bridal petticoat business in England so hope that helps! ๐Ÿ™‚

I fold and laid mine in my old room at my parents house. I plan to unfold it the night before the wedding.

I am just leaving mine folded in it’s original packaging. I am sure it will be fine. I do plan to take it out though and practice walking in it with my shoes up and down the stairs, so I don’t fall on our wedding day.

Oh yay for this thread I asked this question a while ago and got no response. I was wondering the same thing since I got excited and bought mine too soon. I just folded it and put it bag in the bag it came in. But I hung the bag up in my closet. That shouldnt affect it I hope.

@Gemstone: Its a duffel bag and one of the straps of the bag is hanging but the crinoline itself is safe.. oh how I worry about it!! I think I should have waited and bought it closer to the date but I really got excited and couldnt leave it in the store! lol
